My husband and I enjoy surprising people with a beautifully set table. Our dining room is red, with lots of lighting possibilities and we can close the doors so guests can”t see the table until it is time to be seated. We use lighting extensively with lots of candles and reflective crystal. We will often use place cards to seat our guests and my husband usually insists on the boy, girl, boy girl…theme with no couples sitting together. It does make for more interesting varied conversation. This video demonstrates a beautifully set table, so, sit back, relax, enjoy and ponder your next dinner party!
I am a retired breast surgeon who worked in the field for 25 years. During my spare time, then and now, cooking and entertaining were popular and important past times for me. I have collected a lot of knowledge over the years and want to share. I am the mother of one adult son and married to another surgeon.
