We always have Sunday "dinner" either with my parents or at our house. I admit-- it takes effort because as a worship leader, Sunday is also a work day and mornings can get really hectic...especially trying to get three children up and ready to go:-)
I love to use the vintage linens that were passed down to me from a cousin of my grandfather's. She was such a cultured southern lady and had the most fabulous things. My mom just gave me this beautiful set of embroidered linen placemats and napkins.
I set a very simple table with the Pfaltzgraff "Heritage" plates, which I use a lot. I really love the smaller size of these 10 1/4" dinner plates.
Pretty blue Fostoria, oddly enough also "Heritage" glasses my mother gave me for Christmas with every day Oneida "Arbor/American Harmony" flatware.
I filled my grandfather's box with my last pink Asiatic lily and blooms from my mother's garden.
Just a casual mix of garden flowers...
I love the crisp, white look of the linen especially with the white plates and the pale blue of the glassware.
But the thing I loved most is that we were all gathered around the table together for another Sunday afternoon dinner. No cell phones, no TV, no computer. Just family:-)
I'll be joining:
