I am having guests over for dinner tomorrow and I will tell you that I am a bit nervous about it. Why? Because one friend that is coming over is a very talented Italian chef. Her food is always delicious. I am not a great cook like her and that is why I am nervous! So I decided to keep the menu simple and let my husband cook something up on the grill. haha
I thought if I set the dining table up pretty, that might impress her and she won’t notice the simple food. haha (I am just cracking myself up). This is my everyday table centerpiece look:
It is not everyday I try to set a fancy tablescape, so I made a practice run to be sure I had everything:
I found this $5.99 Fall colored material from Christmas Tree Shop in the closet and used as my foundation:
I used my everyday dinnerware and just layered:
I do not like to put a lot of decorative items or large centerpieces in the center of table while eating. Where would you put the food?
Well, I think it looks beautiful! I am sure our friends will be quite impressed with my fancy table! haha And that’s what I did all afternoon today!
Do you like setting a pretty table? Do you plan it out before the actual day? Have a great weekend everyone!
