We hosted a 'Supper Club' from our Church last Friday night. There were nine of us including three couples and three singles. I found some roses for $7.99 a dozen at Fred Meyer, and bought the last pack of white ones. They made a great centerpiece after being cut down and placed in a depression ware cookie jar. I was inspired by my viewing of place settings at our fair, so made up a simple menu for the table.
This was how the table looked just waiting for the guests to arrive.

I only had eight goblets and cups, so used some of my depression ware for the ninth setting. Each napkin was wrapped in a little bit of old tatting from my grandmother, and a piece of blooming peppermint from the garden. It is always a lot of fun for me to set the table...I remember enjoying it even as a child.

After the guests arrived, we enjoyed a little pre-dinner visiting in the garden.

And the insurance man enjoyed a little visiting around the snacks I had set out. It was a great evening of relaxed, joyous sharing together.
On the 'name the dog' front, we have several name suggestions now:
  • Gallahad
  • Sable
  • Fred
  • Buddy
  • Taffy
  • Licorice
  • Snickers
  • Shadow
  • Nigel
  • Pal
  • Greatheart

We are still waiting on a suggestion from Calvin, and Doris is trying them out. I'll let you know which one she takes.

This looks so nice. It looks like you had fun doing it. I'm sure everyone enjoyed it a lot. Where's that roast?
