Table Talk

I didn't have much to work with - our wedding china, crystal, and silver are all in storage back in the US. There's no such thing as real, but decorative pumpkins down here, and I didn't want to spend a load on fresh flowers. However, I think I eeked out a bit of ninja tablesetting skills...

No, I won't call it my "tablescape." Whoever invented that word probably puts their child daughter in pageants.

What I DID have on hand? My maternal grandmother's china, pressed linen napkins, large globe glasses (Pier 1 clearance several years back), and an abundance of fresh herbs. It was sort of a mish-mash, but it worked out nicely.

As did all the DEE-lish grub. Hope you haven't been trampled today by someone wanting that $119 Wii...
