It's the simple things

Every time I throw a dinner party or a casual get together with friends, like I did yesterday, I realize it's the the simple things in life that are the best.

 Time spent with friends, centered around good food, great conversation and lots of laughter does a soul good.

And at the end of the afternoon, I was left with wonderful memories and lovely mementos of a day well spent!

Hello Terri:
It is always most satisfying to mull over a lunch or dinner party which has gone well, reflecting on a good time had by all.

You said it perfectly...simple things in life are the best!
What wonderful flowers. The spider brooch(?) on the hydrangeas is a delightful and unexpected touch!
I have been perusing your last few posts...I love the use of hydrangeas on those planters. Too bad the sun won out!However,they were replaced with objects that are so interesting!
I just put you on my blogroll, I need to check in more often!

Good friends are like flowers from the garden. Love the florals, and a story of friendship.
Always nice to hear what you have to say "T" and happy to hear you enjoyed your get together.

I think you made your guests feel important. I want to do this. Don't you find it hard to coordinate calendars...oh well, I'm going to make the effort. Sometimes impromptu is easier. Such a pretty table. Love the plates.
