A Season Ending Supper TableSeptember 19, 2016
This is a story of tradition, a table setting and saying farewell to our lovely, lovely Summer.
The dahlias just so perfect from the Market on Saturday I about shed a tear as they were being wrapped up. They would be just the right colors as we say good-bye to Summmaaa and welcome in Autumn. The red bowls a Christmas gift from last year that we have used time and again and adore.
Then the red Laguoile silverware, napkins in a vintage Lucite ring, a heavy French wine glass had the table set and ready for the fun stuff.
Part of my collection of number 11 pool balls would be called into action as well as dominos and a matchstriker plus 11 plates from the shops from ages ago along with a few other random red things. All stuff that makes us happy plus it pulls from the colors of the dahlias so it brings it all together. We were set to have our season ending meal with dearest of friends who we have a 10+ year tradition of sharing an alfresco supper with at WestWard during the sunny season.
