Simple Pleasures ❧ Setting an Intimate Lunch

the pleasures of laying out the table

with an eclectic mix of our prettiest

memories and new beginnings intermingled

china and glassware, old and new

I never met his mother but know her through

delicate crystal

family silver gleaming upon vintage linen

bringing grace to our table

fresh hydrangeas in a vase

a view of the garden and the thrill of springtime beckoning

anticipation of an intimate lunch for two


  1. You’ve set such a lovely table, Mar, and you make it all so inviting. Surely you won’t mind a 3rd for lunch. I’ll be there at noon, thank you . 🙂

    • There’s always room to set another place setting! Better get started, it’s a long trip! If you can’t make it in person, do dine with us in spirit! 😃
