Two Fridays ago, we almost had Bishop Mark and Fr. David over for dinner. The plan was that Courtney would make the meal and I would host. Due to unforeseen circumstances, an emergency Parish Council meeting was called at church and the dinner had to be cancelled (seeing as both of our guests AND Jesse needed to be in attendance).
But the near-event caused me to realize that I am lacking a few nicer things when it comes to the “hosting” department. You might laugh, but I realized that I don’t have enough table room for 6!
I’ve decided that until I find the perfect table, I’ll try and find a card table to add on as an extension. We’ll see how tacky that ends up being in reality 🙂
Next, I realized that I don’t have any table cloths or napkins! I know, gasp, right? The only table cloth I’ve ever owned I received at my bridal shower, back when I had a round table.
My mission was clear. Find adequate table decor, in case we ever need to host a dinner.
Requirements: under $50 and within “my” style (ie., nothing terribly fancy).
What do you think?
Then, I tried several centerpiece ideas. I’m still not sure. Perhaps nothing would be better, seeing as there is limited table space as it is.
