be seated


I've been having a bit of a fiddle with place settings
for my family Christmas dinner .


I finally got myself organised and did teeny tiny
stitches on my dyed doily rounds and turned
them all into a very festive runner .


So , so lucky my oilcloth and doily runner
match my button tree .

I am a hopeless cook so it's just as well
the table will look beautiful as it might distract them .

I am sure you have alot of eye candy all over your house to distract them...but I am sure you are probably under estimating yourself and your cooking abilities.

I like your thinking Clare. Give them a visual feast for the eyes in case they dont get one for their stomachs.

Sounds like something I should be plotting !
