I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Does anyone have any fun traditions surrounding thanksgiving? My family always starts a puzzle after dinner, and tries to finish it before Christmas. This year however, my parents met me on the east coast, and we had thanksgiving dinner at a friend's lovely home, which I hope to show you next week.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of having a second turkey dinner with P and his family. Here are some photos of the lovely meal. I frequently confuse where to put the salad for, and the rest of the silverware for a formal dinner, so here is what Emily Post says:
"The basic rule is: Utensils are placed in the order of use, that is, from the outside in. A second rule, with only a few exceptions is: forks go to the left of the plate, and knives and spoons go to the right."
I remember this by the lettering..fork and left both have 4 letters, whereas spoon, knife, and right all have 5. I think our table looks lovely, and follows the rules fairly well! Click here to see how you did.
Happy holidays, and happy designing! Feel free to leave any comments or specific questions that you would like addressed.
