Good Food, great friends....

Today I would like to share with you a tablescape that I put together for a dinner party with dear friends.

Our two families have known each other now for almost 22 years. We met back when we lived in Cloppenburg Germany-parted ways for a few years and reconnected when both families moved to the Berlin area.

This past Saturday we invited the family over for a bbq, yes I set the table inside---once again it was raining and cold and enjoying the outdoors was not possible. But we did not let the bad weather damper our spirits--I am sure the neighbors heard us laughing. This dinner was unique in that the families were complete---all 3 boys were at the table with us. Dennis the oldest of the 3 was joined by his girlfriend, a very nice young lady. I wonder what she thought of this crazy bunch?  

Well, back to the tablescape....

The tablecloth comes from a store call Strauss Innovation
The dishes are Rosenthal(and took a hit that night as I broke one and chipped 3 in the process.
The red stemware also was bought at Strauss Innovation
The flowers were a last minute idea--found them at the grocery store when I went to get some last minute items
The cutlery comes from Crate and Barrel
The pitcher is polish pottery

Our Friends, Peter and Sabine...... Thanks for a wonderful evening--so looking forward to the next one

Join me each Sunday for my weekly party


  1. What a lovely tablescape. I love the flowers down the center and the red glasses are perfect!

  2. It looks lovely and FUN. I love that tablecloth. Stripes happen to be a personal pattern of mine, and that one is so versatile you can use it a lot of different ways.

  3. Fun table! Love the striped cloth and that pitcher is wonderful!

  4. Who cares if the weather was cold outside with such a beautiful warm and welcoming table inside? Thanks for letting us have a look.

  5. Your table is very inspiring and I can't get over on this tablescape you made here. I love its simplicity and still, I can sense the love and passion you put in here. Thanks for sharing it with us.
