Love is in the air

Our table set and our friends on the way.
Our house buzzing with the excitement of fellowship with friends.
Cooking, cleaning, and setting our table is always the hard part.
But, oh how we love it.
I always have a theme.... and my table, flowers, and music adds
to the theme. It could be mexican, or Italian, or like on this night,
a love theme, because it's so close to Valentines day.

We have laughed so much around this big ol' table and the friendships
that we have bonded here are priceless.
Taylor and I always serve courses to our guest and
behinde the scenes we are laughing and giggling like school girls.   

I love candles and I love a well set table.
We have stainless steel cups and plates so they look beautiful
with everything.

We had wooden place cards so everyone would know where
to sit and they would have a treasure to take home.....
I'm all about the memories..
The music had channie dancing with all her brothers.
She loves to twirl and dance under their little arms and 
there is no way she would let them lead..
I still have work to do with this one..:) 

Yep, love is in the air..and I'm loving my world..

Now get out there and plan your own Valentine dinner
and make some memories..

Robin, beautiful table.
Glad you posted, miss when you don't.
May God bless all your efforts and you and your wonderful family.

I, too, love a beautifully set table. I have different table cloths for the many seasons of the year; and we use beautiful tablecloths every day of the year. (oops ... sweet husband shrunk my new Valentines table cloth that I just bought last year. so sad.)

WHERE do you get the stainless steal cups and plates? I LOVE them? I have NEVER seen anything like them. Practical, yet beautiful!

We, too, LOVE to fill our home with friends and family. The more the merrier. We can actually have a sit-down meal for 30 in our dining room. It's a bit of a tight squeeze, but always worth it.

As many have said, your table looks great! Thank you also for the reminder about hospitality. Where did you get your table? Did someone make it for you or did you find it at a store? With baby #7 coming and our table filled already, we are seeing what the next step is. We love the look of yours and just wondered where it came from.

Hi Robin. I too am wondering where you were able to find the stainless steel plates and cups. With littles doing the dishes nonbreakable dishes would be awesome. Beautiful table!
