Goodbye Dinner



We are almost ready to go back to Florida. We have left the cabin and moved into Jack’s house until we go back. The cabin is not winterized. So as the temperatures drop, our landlords close it up for the winter. Jack’s house is up the road. We spend time there during the summer – washer and dryer are there.

We decided to have some friends in for dinner.


The weather is perfect for Pot Roast.  A salad bar and bread will accompany the roast which has been cooked with potatoes and carrots.




The table is set. So let’s take a look.

Let’s light the candles.




The fireplace is going.


It should be a wonderful time.

Thanks for stopping by. I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Stop by and see all the beautiful tablescapes.

Hi Carol, what a cozy setting by the fire! Also came over to thank you for dropping by and leaving your kind words. You along with others have asked how I created the photo with textures. I will do a post soon and demonstrate for you and those who are interested. Stay tuned! :=)

I love the lighting in this post. From the shadowy photo to the one with the light glinting off the green glasses, it is all beautiful. I wish I had the knack of making food look pretty. You have it.

Carol, what a wonderful meal! And that fire makes it so cozy and intimate. Love that! Your green Depression Glass is just the right hint of green to echo the greens in the centerpiece. Looks like the perfect setting for friends to gather!

Have a safe trip back to Florida. We have glorious weather right now.

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

As I scrolled through your photographs, loving all the colors, the light streaming across the wood floors, the clean-lined furniture, the glassware, and the flowers, I thought, "So serene." Then I smiled, remembering the name of your blog and thought, "Well, of course it is!"

Loved your tablescape today, and the meal sounds delicious! I hope you have an enjoyable trip to FL ...

Kindest regards,

A warm and welcoming home with a beautiful table all set for a great dinner. Perfect for a cool autumn feast. Take care.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Well of course it will be a success -- how can it miss with that menu and that table? It's just right for that room, in this season. Rustic and elegant, all at the same time.
And the room itself? Wowser! Simply stunning; what views. I love the shots at night, in the candlelight.
Very atmospheric.
And now -- have a SAFE and uneventful trip south!

Hi Carol, Your table looks so welcoming on this very cold night! This is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy a meal, and your green dishes are just right on that table. Enjoy! Linda

I am GREEN with envy over that beautiful depression glass as well as that gorgeous wood floor!!! How special to be able to entertain in such a lovely location.

I think I have that exact square glass platter that you've served your salad in. I've never used it for such & will now have to looks delicious especially with the artful arrangement. Well done!
