“Your table is not quite ready. Perhaps you would like to enjoy a beverage while you look at the menu for tonight’s dinner?”
While I have been cleaning and organizing cupboards and closets, I have come across many items I had forgotten about or forgotten that I had. This ice bucket was tucked in the back of a cupboard I rarely open.
The ice bucket with the bar tools that hook on to the bucket belonged to my parents and was a gift. They used it occasionally but I think my mother probably balked at keeping it polished.
The linen tablecloth was a find many years ago and I found it at the bottom of a trunk at the foot of our bed. This trunk has many treasures that I hope to share in the coming year.
I love the details on the various bar tools. The glasses are Waterford and my parents used them frequently for their cocktails! They survived and I have 4 of them.
The design on the tablecloth is pansies and shamrocks – an interesting combination. I scrunched the cloth on my coffee table.
I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. Be sure to visit her and see all the lovely vignettes and tabletops.
