The table is set for dinner.
As usual I kept things casual and comfortable.
I want my guest to feel special and welcomed.
I want them to feel at home.
This time I used my
Porcelain rectangular plates.
It was a wedding gift from a special lady whom I worked for a little time while I was in High School.
She has a Restaurant called "Antico Giardino" near Ferrara, Italy.
(where I was born and raised)
Other things that I used:
the large wooden trivet I made a while back,
a few metal pieces
(the egg basket is holding some homemade bread, kept warm by a kitchen towel),
and one set of napkins that I also made.
The tablecloth is dropcloth with plastic backing...I purposely made it 3" shorter on each side, in a way that only drapes over the table on the two long sides.
The plastic baking is a life saver when children spill liquids over it.
So childproof for sure.
Now waiting for our guests to arrive.
