This was my house on Sunday evening. The scene was set for a dinner group of eighteen from our church congregation to join us. It was a great opportunity to get to know some families we were otherwise unfamiliar with.
Only one problem: we do not have seating for eighteen! Do you? We resorted to bringing the craft table up from the basement and setting it up in the library for extra seating. With the extra leaf in our kitchen table, each room could seat six. Whew!
As I was putting the finishing touches on table setting in the dining room I looked up and realized that I had almost a mirror image in the library. Weird!
I’d pretty much convinced myself that the layout of our house wasn’t meant for entertaining, but after this nice evening, I am reconsidering that thought. I just needed to think outside the box a little.
Come back tomorrow for a closer look at something and new in the picture above. Hint: It smells like barbeque!
