Something I've always wanted to do was entertain friends in my home. I find dinner parties to be so fun & intimate. Here's the challenge I don't cook very often. I will say I am slowly working to correct said challenge. I've been going through my binders of table settings...hoping to speed up my cooking skills. Tomorrow I'll be trying out a new turkey chili recipe. Who am I kidding, all recipes for me are a new, try-out kinda thing. Wish me luck! Here are some of the table settings I enjoy.

This is one of my favorite table settings.
I think the flowers make it.

A more simple setting that feels like you'd be
enjoying some robust red wine.

I love these green chairs with a touch
of blue on the table.

As we express gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
