Dinner at our house- Popular dishes -4/2/10
Setting up the table!
It has been a while since I hosted a dinner party at our house! I planned for a dinner in two weeks but found out that Tuan is going to England for 10 days so I moved the dinner up to this week end. With only 5 days to figure out what to served I decided to make a few popular dished that everyone seem to enjoy each time it is served.
To set up the table, I was inspired tby classic French country with emphasis on the color blue.
When I start setting up the table I don't really know how it will end up. What I know for sure are which plates I want to use and then everything else is added after and if it looks good then it is a keeper, and if it does not than I just replace it until it is satisfactory.
For the the plate setting I used blue plates mixed with gold plates. Blue goblins are added and green and blue leaves butter plates are added for color and texture.
I bought some tulips and I also went out to our garden and cut a bunch of flowers and used them as center piece.
