About 11am the Fed X truck arrived in my driveway with the table I ordered last week.
All we had to do was take it out of the box and plop it down --no assembly required... gotta love that!
I am so happy that it did indeed match the bench I bought last spring.
Last week I re-designed the floral arrangement on top of my metal lantern. I wanted to use the antlers from my son's first buck (today is opening day of deer season) and some white owls I recently purchased.
I think I like the lantern sitting all alone on this table.
When the new table arrived, we were right in the middle of hauling end tables, etc. from the living room down to the basement to make room for a second table in our dining room for the Thanksgiving dinner that we are hosting. We store an old oval table ( I have had it since 1974--40 YEARS! How can that be???) in the basement for large holiday dinners. If we set it end-to-end with our dining room table we can comfortably seat 14.
I decorated the china cabinets with items from my Thanksgiving décor boxes, but did not finish the tables. I need to come up with something down the center of both tables to tie them together. Not an easy task when the tables are so different!
It's a bit of a mess right now.
In the meantime I sat among the clutter to plan my menu...
I will get the list prepared and J will do the shopping. Together I hope we can pull off a successful Thanksgiving celebration for our families!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
