...there is a way. Yesterday we had 24 guests inside our house for a sit down dinner, a feat I never thought possible and yet it worked. Cold drizzly weather left us no choice. It was cozy to say the least. These are the before pictures, I was too tired to take afters.
I clipped foliage from the trees outside.
We had to move the refrigerator in order to squeeze in a table for the food. That essentially cut off a good portion of the house. So instead of being in 970 sq ft, we were in about 600.
The black and cream toile is a drapery panel. The napkins are just cut fabric, I didn't have the time to sew them but no one seemed to care. The flatware is from my childhood.
The stuffed portobello mushrooms were a big hit even with the meat eaters. All in all it was a success. I'm exhausted but giving thanks that I don't work today. The linens are being washed as I type and the house will slowly be put back together. How was your day? x
