I am going to be honest, while Maggie was still in a highchair, we were very casual with our dinners. Probably a little too casual... we often ate at the coffee table. Now that she can sit with us in a booster seat, we make a point of sitting together at the dining table for dinner and actual conversation . You should hear Maggie's energetic recap of her days, which usually include "swings and slides". During the week, despite our best efforts, our sit-down meals tend to be brief. But on Sundays, we try and set a nice table and really indulge in a traditional family meal. I have to admit, my husband is the cook, so my job is setting the scene.
This weekend I set a rustic and causal table, mixing a variety of items I have been collecting for years with fresh-cut iceberg roses from our garden. Our Bennington Potters plates and covered serving dish were wedding gifts and they worked so well with antique brown and cream English T & R Boote Lahore plates that I found at a flea market. And if you follow me on Instagram, you probably remember the custom monogrammed napkins! I cannot even tell you how much I enjoy Sunday dinner!
Oh, and a little Peter Rabbit plate for Maggie!
And she loved the meal! Have a wonderful week everyone!
