New Year's Fun

Sunday Savor~~~ I thought for this installment that I would share with you a couple of get togethers we had at our house over the last several days. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First up~~~ Our friends Dan and Nancy came over for dinner on December 29th. Since we would not be celebrating the new year together as we have in the past, I put together a "New Year's" tablescape.
I started with these small Fiber
Optic trees and some crystal "table
scatters". I put a horn at each
place setting and a whistle by each
plate. The guys had hats and the
gals had "Hollywood glasses."
The place mats are white with silver
thread woven throughout and I
used our white dishes. Our napkins
said "Happy New Year," of course.

The Menu: (n0 pics--too busy)
Ham
Potatoes Diana
Green Salad
Crusty Rolls
Dessert:
Raspberry Kringle
Above is a distance shot of the
table. If you look close enough
you can see some of the light
on the trees.
Here is an up close shot of a place setting. Below is our side table/stand with more decor.

Last evening our friend Sonja came over for dinner to celebrate the brand new year. I kept the same table theme since it was festive. This was a less formal type meal. ~~~~~~~ The Menu: Sloppy Joes Frito Scoops French Onion Dip Assorted Fresh Veggies Pickles/Olives Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce Here are a couple shots of the table and food.
We enjoyed seeing friends and
sharing meals over the holidays.

  8. I'm going to have to come to dinner at your house. My husband doesn't like sloppy joes, so I never make them anymore. And I LOVE them. Hope you had a nice winter break while it lasted.

  9. Hi Melinda. You are such a good friend...I love all the effort you go to for dinner with friends. I'm betting that the time you all spent together was just as "sparkly" as your table settings! :)
