For the third consecutive year, four households on our cul-de-sac participated in a holiday progressive dinner. It’s a time for us to all get together before the hustle and bustle of the season gets us too wrapped up to wish one another good cheer. Ramon and I look forward to it each year.

This year another couple from the neighborhood joined our group to make it all the merrier. We began the evening at 5:30 for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, then on for salad, followed by the entree, and last – but never least! – dessert! We ended the evening with a few rousing games on the neighbor’s Wii. Much needed exercise after all that delicious food!!!

This post is also about opportunities to reuse decor items and ideas. Elements from two recent posts are freshened and incorporated for a whole new look on one table. Given the number of dinner parties we host, it sometimes makes sense to not try and reinvent the wheel…but to simply give it a facelift! I hope you are able to take away some ideas for your own use!

I am delighted to join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. After peeking in on my photos, please feel free to wander on over to Susan’s place to see what other tablescapers around the world are up to!

  1. Alycia, what a fun event! I always learn something from your posts — I like the idea of putting two tables together to make a square, and I may try that for our son’s rehearsal dinner in a couple of weeks! The ribbon beneath a glass plate is also a fab idea! Your table looks SO festive!

    • Thanks, Tricia! Putting the two tables together horizontally allows lots more space for center decor which I really like. It also gives the illusion of a round table for those people who have a hard time adjusting to the Tuscan-style table set up!
