A Table’s Invitation…

The table awaits your company.

A clean table cloth displaying a centerpiece created with Blue Willow serviceware invites you to my table. Homemade placemats rest for six settings. Folded cloth napkins tenderly await for the appropriate time.

Our table greets you as a welcomed guest as you will be served with the finest daily ware from one or mix of Correlle, Blue Willow, Memory Lane or Currier and Ives. Mismatched silver eating utensils and a Mason jar will gracefully surround the place setting according to proper etiquette.

A simple prayer will be given before partaking of the meal and conversing over the day’s events. Cell phones and elbows are not permitted during the meal.

The meal arrays from soup and sandwiches to a full course of home-cooked necessitating the use of assorted dish wares. A coffee cup and saucer are furnished upon request.

The table does not keep time. Its provisions of comfort and reassurance replenishes to all that receives.

The table openly invites you for peaceful nourishment.

May you be blessed with the following as I have been looking forward to “Suppertime.”https://youtu.be/XpII12_QXsc

In memory- until I sit down with you again at the table.
