TABLESCAPES - Blue table

This was our tablescape for todays Sunday dinner. My daughter, Sarah had been out shopping and stopped at a linen store that was going out of business and she picked this set up for around $15 or so. It's a nice lightweight linen tablecloth and matching napkins. We only had 8 blue, so we added in a few white here and there. I love this flower arrangement. It's funky and different! Plus it's tall enough to stay on the table during the meal and not block anyone's view of others seated at the table.

This is the napkin fold we did today. It is the rose. The napkins weren't stiff enough to do the water lily. If you're short on time, you can always just fluff the napkin inside the empty water goblets. That makes for a pretty look to the table as well. I'm also a big fan of napkin rings and have several sets in my collection. My favorite ones are big gerber daisies. I have 4 yellow and 4 purple. They make my Spring table just BEEautiful!

These aren't the greatest pics. I was just beginning to snap pics today and my batteries died! Figures! Do you know how nerve racking it is to cook for a chef? This is the family we had over for dinner today. David and Carmen Iseminger. He is our local church evangelist, but he's also a chef! He offered to make dessert for today and you know what? I LET HIM! LOL He made Caramel pecan apple pie (to die for!) and Chocolate truffle pie. Here we are getting ready to serve up dessert. He and his wife Carmen, are doing the honors and everyone is fixated on the pies before us! They really were super good. The rest of the gang waiting their turn for dessert. You can see his daughter Lena, in the background (in the pink shirt), after her first taste of the Chocolate truffle pie! That was the first time he had made either one, but you sure couldn't tell!
