Exquisite Kelly! The color scheme is gorgeous as well. Pulling together the birds in the silver pattern with the table linens is super attention to detail!

Kelly --this is fabulous, and you clearly have a great design eye.

I'm fascinated with the way you entertain -- these small, manageable get-togethers. I sometimes think that people in my community have expectations that are too great, so people maybe don't entertain as they once did because it all seems so daunting. Ex: instead of cocktails for 90 minutes, served with one or two simple hors d'oeuvres and a bowl of nuts, after which everyone goes home after a drink or two, people stage events with 'heavy hors d'oeuvres' that run to two and half hours before the last guest goes home. It ends up being a stand-up grazing supper party.

What you do is elegant, and different, and not onerous. Can you tell us the circumstances of an 'impromptu' dessert with macaroons?

Thank you seaduck for your kind words. I love to have people over for dessert or cocktails with simple hors d'oevres. I am not a big cook, so a dinner party would be a big effort. Therefore, I often meet friends for dinner and then we go back to my house for dessert. I often get a tart or pie and make fresh whipped cream to accompany it. I also am fond of making zabligione with berries as well.

The impromptu coffee occured because a friend called up that day to go to dinner for the holidays and I said I would do dessert. I picked up macaroons on the way home and then decided on an Aesthetic silver theme for the table. I often pick a type of silver to feature for the event. My traditionally styled candelabra which is late 19th century English plate is always featured no matter the style of silver I use.

Happy Holidays! Kelly

Nautilusjv, Thanks for both of your posts on interestingly and beautiful table settings. I also like the background of a bookcase filled with appealing pictures and of course books. What will life be like when all we have is an electronic reader?

Thanks ahwt for your kind words. I think I will try to stand firm against ever using an electronic reader. It seems so cold. There is nothing like a well read favorite book that one returns to over and over and it shows the traces of the reader's use. I guess when they stop making print books, there will always be used book stores.

Happy Holidays! Kelly
