I had a long day yesterday, finishing up a photo shoot of a project at about 6:30 p.m. I was exhausted and it was such a pleasure to go to dinner at my friend Terri's house after all that. She and her husband love to entertain and they do so often with lots of flair.
Terri loves color and has some wonderful collections of pottery and glass. Her table settings are always beautiful. I love those big salad bowls. Here was the salad with gorgeous roasted vegetables that we had in these bowls.
She has lived overseas, traveled a lot, and loves to bring back things for her table and kitchen when she travels. The Greek tablecloth was one of those finds.
She's not afraid to mix patterns and colors. It creates such a festive vibe.
Just when I think I have a lot of dishes, I come to Terri's and see something new and beautiful and want to add more to my stash!
Delicious cheeses and butter in her little dishes from Italy. The spoons are from Norway.
Love her Blenko glass!
I only brought some of the melons I used at my photo shoot that day. I was such a bad guest! No time or energy to bring a dish to share. I owe them several nice dinners. I'm going to have to work hard to come close to this!
I helped Terri with her dining room redo recently. Before shots and the plan HERE.
After seeing her table and beautiful dishes, don't you think the fabrics and paint color fit her style?
Such a lovely evening. She should have been a caterer or event planner! :)
