A French Dinner

 The slide show is now in my sidebar. I will take some time next week to figure out how I could have made it part of my post.

A few weeks back we had dinner with friends. Our friends love dishes, food and flowers as much as we do. So the day was chosen and all we had to do was bring a bottle of wine and I brought my camera.
I should have known when I saw the chef that we were in for a wonderful meal!

He was consulting with Julia

and the two of them chose.

The table was set and there was a lovely centerpiece.



The light in the dining room changed throughout the afternoon.

Looks as if it was a wonderful evening of culinary delights. I also enjoyed seeing the pretty plates and dishes.

I have been missing your tablescapes but this one was worth the wait. It all looks wonderful, the food, china, cutlery (flatware) Reminds me it is only a month until we go to France although I don't think it will be very fine dining as we are both keen to keep losing weight!! I am looking forward to getting a few French china etc.. souvenirs.

Have a great weekend, Love Jackie.x

Carol, sounds like a wonderful eving. I love a carefully prepared meal. I had a pig like that, by kids broke his ears off. I threw it away. What was I thinking...there's always glue! Have a great weekend. Joni
