Whenever we are at a furniture store I am always drawn to tables. They are my favorite piece of home furnishings. In this last week I have been so happy to be able to invite groups of people into my home. The size of the groups and the nature of our activities necessitated the makeshift large table created by pushing two smaller tables up against my dining room table. One big covering mostly disguised the invention.
Our first gathering was a dinner party we hosted to celebrate my birthday attended by some dear close friends. We had Chinese, great coffee, and cheesecake as we talked the night away. The eight of us had a grand time.
Last night the second group of people converged for an organizational tea. They are the leadership of my ladies group. We are a bakers dozen. Once a month I have them over for tea and we plan for the coming month. It was a lively time and I enjoyed it very much.
I think my husband saw how much fun I was having at these two get-togethers, one functional and the other recreational, because he suggested that I organize more of them. Yay! Now my mind is racing with schematics to have a nice big table made that will comfortably seat twelve and cozily seat sixteen.
