Here's a 360-degree tour of my dining room, starting with the view from the entryway:
Moving counter-clockwise around the table, here's the view toward the sideboard:
Moving around to the hostess' end of the table, you can see the entryway and the old green cabinet we bought as newlyweds to hold wedding gifts.
One last turn brings us to this view. Why, yes, we DO have a piano in the dining room. Doesn't everyone? We moved it into the dining room when we needed more room for seating in the living room, and it has worked out pretty well. Things get a little crowded when we add the table leaf for large gatherings, but we make it work.
For the Fourth, though, we'll just have four around the table. Here's a view down the table from the host's seat.
You'll no doubt recognize my new favorite lantern seen in recent tablescapes, this time with a little red and blue tinsel inside. You've also seen the Georgian-Ruby glassware recently. Here's a closer look at both:
The placesetting includes a navy and white plaid placemat (Kohl's), a white dinner plate, red salad plate, and a cobalt blue Fiesta fruit bowl. White napkins from my mother-in-law are tied with striped ribbon to add a festive touch. The flatware is our everyday stainless, Towle Beaded Antique.
Happy Fourth of July, y'all! Thanks for visiting, and check out all the other tablescapes at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.
