It was very relaxed and intimate.
A very small gathering, only five of us.
Needless to say, I’m still tired and probably won’t be hungry until Christmas–that’s probably when our leftovers will run out.
We had quite a menu (–I made one for each place setting).

They turned out really cute. I downloaded the print from The Graphics Fairy and added the menu at Picnik.com. I added some cute card stock and a ribbon to each.

I tried to keep everything simple and with natural elements. I clipped a few branches from our Magnolia for the greenery. I used my favorite “Lynn Holland” plates, copper chargers, antique salt and pepper cellars and shakers. The beautiful fleur-de-lis glassware is Mignon Faget. The cute acorn plates were bought a few years ago at Pottery Barn and the ceramic gourd place card holders are from Williams-Sonoma. The linen is from Target.

I also made an appetizer table for before the meal munching. I guess I thought we wouldn’t have enough food.
I’ll share recipes soon for most of the dishes.
