Last night was the first of two dinner parties for us. Unfortunately, I did not get pictures except for the ...
flowers and the stain
I will have to wash that.
I know the flowers were springy but they fit in my great, great, grandmother's flower bowl perfectly. I was tossed up on whether to do my Christmas dishes but they are gold and stars and fancy and the meal of beef bourguignon called for simpler settings. The meal was awesome and the company too. It turned out to be a wonderful evening and still I do it all over again next week! (Sorry for the bad photo.)
