I guess my true love of entertaining came from my Mom, for years growing up we hosted every Holiday Meal, Family Get Together, Birthday, Parties etc. And everything was done with flair. Tablecloths, dishes, glass stemware, center pieces and the most incredible food you could ever desire.

Now it wasn’t just food, it had to have every color, texture and temperature. Hot was to be served hot and cold serve cold!! Of course timing is everything. There was always a table for the array of desserts. Yummy!! What memories I have, the pure joy of bringing people together. Thank you Mom for all your hard work, and instilling in me a sense of “doing it right”.

Oh how my heart races when I see glassware, table clothes, candles, place cards, serving pieces, anything that would make the setting perfect. I love all this stuff!!

First, I have to say thank you for following my blog. I love making friends! Second, I love your blog and can't wait to get to know you more. Third, I LOVE entertaining! I just have a tiny house and none of the great entertaining equipment, but I am working on that. In the meantime, I plan on learning all sorts of things from you and your blog.
