~~~Dinner with Family and Friends!!!~~~

Hi my friends! I know I have been MIA but we have house guests. Joe's sister and Bil are here from Fl. for the week and we are keeping BUSY! Last night our daughter and SIL came here from work and Joe's cousin, Bonnie came over and my best friend, Wenda. It was a full house. We had a very simple dinner: grilled chicken, potato salad, fruit salad, greek salad with greek dressing and deviled eggs and baked beans! It was all yummy but the best part is spending time with loved ones. I set a pretty simple table and thought I would share. I started with a plain white tablecloth and layered on my green and white placemats.
 My embossed white dinner plates then a black and white salad were layered on top. No big stack of dishes last night:) A black and white napkin was simply placed between the plates.
 I used my Napolean Bee flatware, I love it for summer dining.

 The centerpiece is a wicker rickshaw that I painted black and filled with greens. It usually sits on the server but I wanted a small centerpiece.

 I just love these creamy white candlesticks and they have a greens candle ring and a black and white pillar.

 Her's the food.....

 I am sorry I didn't get a picture of the chicken or beans. They came to the table last and we all sat and I forgot.
 We all sat and talked til 9PM and had a great time! Today we are having severe weather, it was like a hurricane this morning, but right now it is calm. It is supposed to get bad again tonight:(  Have a good day where you are. Thanks so much for your visit! I so appreciate your support!!!! XO, Pinky

  1. Pinky,
    You've used my favorite color palette for tablescaping, dear friend!!! I adore the crispness of the green placemats against the white tablecloth!!! Black and white salad/ dessert plates are adorable!!! Love the fact that the plates, napkins and candles are co~ordinated!!! Those candlesticks are gorgeous!!!
    I chuckle, because, I too, forget to take photos of the food!!! At that time of the event my focus is on serving my guests!!!
