Dinner table

We rarely use the formal dining room for meals, but for Passover this year we hosted the second night of seder at our house and so I broke out the tablecloth and the casual china to dress the dining table with. I debated using the formal china that belonged to Mr Hazel's grandmother (which we received when we got engaged), but as heirloom pieces, I'm too afraid they'll break so we have never, to this day, used them. I was nevertheless happy to set the table for a change, and with real cloth napkins to boot. It made me feel like a civilized grown-up.

Beautiful table setting!;)
I know what you mean about being civilized.;) As I dine alone most of the time, I eat in front of TV with the plate on my lap. I only eat at the table when the Irishman is around ad I find it so much nicer.,)))

Hi, Hazel! Your table is beautiful...I love the simple elegance and color! We use our dining room everyday--only place to eat as our kitchen is dinky--LOL! But it is nice to use the room for its intended purpose--and dress the table up or down. Thanks for stopping in to see me...I've been behind on visits--crazy-busy days just now. Happy weekend ahead :o) ((HUGS))

Protege, we eat in front of the tv most nights, too! The coffee table lifts up - it's a magic table :)
