dinner party & healthy snack

this weekend involved many things.
some really sad, that i don’t want to go into right now.
and some happy.

flowers & wineit was our turn to host our dinner group.
there are 4 of us couples and we rotate houses.
we try for once a month but realistically it ends up being quarterly by the time our schedules all line up.

and let me just say… all the other ladies are AMAZING cooks.
that’s how i choose my friends! shhhh. 😉

i want to bless them the way that they’ve blessed me.

hence the perfect reminder in the curly girl design card!
and it did hold true. of course.

dinner groupthe table setting i kept simple as to not overwhelm myself.
flowers & candles that was it.

i have a habit of wanting to shoot for the moon and then being disappointed in myself when things don’t end up perfect.
any of you do that?

in the end, it’s really about the conversation & the people.
which both, as always, were wonderful!

are you in a dinner group?
do you do themes? games? conversation starters?
if you’re not in one, maybe it’s time to start one…

  1. Michelle the table is beautiful but where is a gorgeous runner down the middle with your art on it? Unbleached cotton, acrylics and flexible varnish…. and one of my very favorite artists is a magic combination for the perfect artist table setting ever!! Let the table match your dreads!! Love them by the way!!

    I have a goddess group we meet for birthday dinners 6 times a year…we use to gather at a house each bringing a dish…now we go out!! All extremely creative women we have set some pretty artsy tables in the last 25 years!! I was waiting to see what you ate…was it curry?

  2. Love the flowers with the napkin colours. I agree, a table runner with your art on it would be fabulous & would be a great conversation starter! The snacks look very tasty. I don’t entertain too much but, I too stress out & want everything to be perfect. In the end you are right, it is the people that count.

    I was BBQing once & ran out of propane right in the middle of cooking the chicken, had to nuke it the rest of the way. Nobody cared, tasted OK, but I was ready to have a melt down! Lots of wine sure helped, & a husband that is calm in the face of disaster. LOL! Needless to say we now have a gas BBQ that is attached to the house line so we will never run out again! 🙂

    PS. Sorry to hear you had some sad things going on. Hugs.

  3. Your table looked beautiful! I LOVE your glasses. Been looking for 2 years for some like that! LOL! And you were using some of my favorite ingredients! coconut yum! Thinking of you lots! Praying for peace for you for your sad stuff. {{BIG Candian hug EH!!}} xoxo Tam

  4. this is lovely. really really pretty. i bet it was such a great night!
    we are not in a dinner group. i don’t know when we would find time. or who would want to be in it.
    we have other friends that are in a group. but not my kind of group i guess.
    maybe someday.. when kids are a little older…
    who knows.
