The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Table for Four, Please!

Most every evening On Crooked Creek, the table is set for two.
But tonight. . .it's a table for four, please!


We'll be joined by our son and daughter ~in~law as we commemorate the first cook ~out of the Season!



On Crooked Creek, we seldom use paper plates.
However, for cook~outs we use our blue and white enamel ware.
Durable and practical. . .and pleasing to the eye!





I've paired our silver rimmed, blue and white enamel ware plates with a cream hued floral place mat. The red florals bring the needed element for our Memorial Day Patriotic theme .
For a pleasing background, I chose a white eyelet tablecloth.



Matching napkins, held with a leaf and cream hue napkin ring, rest atop the dinner plate.




Our everyday beaded flatware nicely accompanies the rimmed dinner plate. The addition of our clear bubble stemware completes this place setting.



Our weather is a bit warmer than usual for our first annual cook~out, so we opted to eat indoors this evening. Using only natural lighting, you can see how brightly lit the dining room is!!!



Borrowed from the front porch is this simple centerpiece of soft buttery yellow primrose.



The only other addition to this tablescape is the hand painted,  Sunflower salt  and pepper shakers. The food will be served buffet style from the galley kitchen.



Memorial Day,
                  our first annual cook ~ out of the Season,
                                                                        On Crooked Creek!




Until next time. . .
