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

Two~by~Two. . .

Just one more thing 
in a very busy week On Crooked Creek. . .
a Two~by~Two Dinner Group!

For several years,
the Fellowship Committee at our Church
placed members of our congregation together in dinner groups.

Placing new(er) members with Seasoned members
allows for congregational blending 
along with an amazing time for fellowship!

Peoples lives are b u s y!
Since retirement, 
we have set aside some time just for fellowshipping!

So~o~o. . .
this week On Crooked Creek another couple,
whom we adore, came  for a Two~by~Two Dinner Group!

Although I wanted to set a elegant table for our dinner,
I kept a simplistic table setting 
to allow for comfort and ease of conversation.

"Mr. Ed" has been quite eager 
to do some "grilling" On Crooked Creek
and had already chosen to make his delicious Rib~eye Steak!

Here's the evenings menu:


Vegetable Soup
Rib~eye Steak
Mashed Potatoes
Mushroom Gravy
Green Beans

Raspberry Clafoutis
Colombian Coffee 
Raspberry in Paris Rooibus Tea

I chose newly purchased creamy ivory floral bouquets 
tied with an ivory satin ribbon 
to place in my urns for the centerpiece.
Placing each atop a plain white cotton
with polka dot organza runner defines the table 
and allows for free flowing conversation!

Picking up the green in the center of the florals,
I chose my everyday sage green dinnerware.
Soft Robin's egg hued linen dinner napkins
encircled with ivory, green leaf and red berry napkin ring
brings a sense of Seasonal flavor to the tablescape.

I adore this leaf embossed
creamy ivory serving bowl!

Newly acquired Home Laughlin
gravy boat with soft golden edge.

Vintage cream ware oval serving platter
from my ever~growing collection!

I chose some of my favorite serving dishes
for our menu selections!

Our Two~by~Two Dinner Group table 
set simplistically for good food and wonderful fellowship!

Began as this . . .

                      . . .and finished as this Two~by~Two Dinner Group.

On Crooked Creek,
the fellowship sweet continued long after sunset!

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creek will be joining
