Look! It's a table cloth! When visiting Leon at his job I saw this fabric sitting under some framing being done. I told the staff working there that I never served a meal on a tablecloth, always using place mats. Then Rose came over and began taking things off of it and telling me to take it home and try it. So I did!
Pulling out the red trimmed plates it became a dinner cover like I'd never had before. My mother always used tablecloths. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it. It appeared so festive and downright magical. This was going to be the last holiday dinner party of the year with Michelle and her family joining us. I set the table, she brought the food!
In walked Michelle and Jeff and their boys with a whole lot of dinner in their hands.
What was inside all the dishes and pans is called one fabulous dinner - cheesy biscuits, smashed potatoes, a salad that was out of this world and baked chicken.
I couldn't believe it. I just borrowed a table cloth and Michelle served the tastings!
When the dessert showed up I about died. That crust and everything in
it became a spectacular treat.
Even Spencer eyed those red berries!
Table discussion took place after the meal. I so enjoyed catching up with Will and Evan while I shared a writing piece for the class I am taking over the winter. The evening went by way too fast. The holidays disappear and today we said "good-bye" to Christmas as the decorations came down and returned to the attic. We're going shopping tomorrow to find a holiday table cloth for next year! Guess where our first stop is going to be. A special thanks goes out to Rose for loaning us that table cloth and napkins.
