“It isn’t the big pleasures that count the most; it’s making a great deal out of the little ones.” Jean Webster
I love a bustling house filled with chatter, laughter, good food and glasses of wine – it’s one of my little pleasures. I feel like on these occasions, taking the time to lay the table nicely is well worth it, as it sets the mood for the events that follow. We have friends coming for lunch tomorrow and I’m feeling in the mood for something bright and cheerful. I’ve chosen an aqua striped tablecloth, brown paper placemats, linen napkins and tiny bunches of sunny daffodils all centred around a large glass balloon filled with ice and champagne. Simple & cheerful – a happy place indeed.
