Progressive Dinner + Tablescapes

Last weekend hubby and I had a great time.  Four houses, four meals and drinks and wonderful neighborhood friends.  I wish I would of taken pictures but I was having too much fun.

We started at Sharon’s with appetizers and a punch that really kicked the atmosphere into gear!  Next was our house and we had the salads.  We had Caprese salad and Caesar salad.  We also had a Bloody Mary bar complete with multiple flavors of mix and the extras’;  pickled onions, beans, asparagus, celery, and cubed cheese.  It was a hit! and really fun to do.  I did set a nice table and I did take a few pictures.

We have a small dining table but we happily seated 7, a little bit of a squeeze but the Bloody Marys’ helped!  I did a black, white, gold and silver theme.  I used both silver and gold chargers, alternating them around the table and also alternated the silver-gray or gold paper napkins, making them opposite of the charger color.  Down the center of the table is a cream runner dressed up in gold glam.

I found the dishes at Home Goods on clearance.  Salad plates $2.00 each, dinner plates $3.00 each.  What a good deal, right?  And I love black and white.

Next stop was K & B’s for a fabulous lasagna, crusty French bread and red wine.  And then on to T & R’s for a wonderful cake, caviar and brandy.

What a wonderful night with friends!

It’s getting oh so close to Christmas.  Are you ready?
