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

Light Dining. . .

Light dining ~ On Crooked Creek ~ 
is more than just the hues chosen for our current tablescape.



"Mr. Ed" and I are both 
trying to cut back on our intake of carb's!




He, being a meat and potatoes man. . .




and I, being a "bread" lady, 
we'll need all the willpower we can muster!!!




Getting us started with our light dining,
I've chosen my beloved Mother~in~law's silver flatware,
combined with a vintage linen embroidered napkin.




Our everyday bee water goblet is paired nicely 
with a crystal etched wine glass from our tour of Europe.




Our light sage green Majolica embossed trays
will serve for this evenings entree. 
Instead of napkin rings, 
I used the handle to encircle the napkins.




Placing the reticulated ivory salad plate
atop the tray keeps our salad portions
as the center attraction of our meal.



Although, our tablecloth is white and light,
I added a layer of ecru crocheted lace 
for a more intimate dining experience.



I adore the intricate handiwork of this table topper
adding just a light touch of color and texture.



The blend between the reticulated ivory  dinnerware
and the crochet topper add an air of romance, as well!



Here's what's on the menu for tonight's dining pleasure. . .



Waldorf Salad

Baked Chili Con Carne in Au Gratin Dishes
