Family Dinner!

Pictures taken just before our family arrived and chairs were put into place.
We used the dining room table & 2 long tables to seat 21.
I didn't want this day to end because it was like a bit of heaven here on earth!
Those grandchildren are so kiss~able, love~able & hug~able!
Families Are Forever! Maryjane

I really want one of those tables!! I want one that seats 21 people. The table looks so lovely, with all the soft pastel colors, and the beautiful plates. Thank you so much for sharing your memories with us, and for remembering to take a picture before the arrival of everyone. Most times I forget to do that.

I LOVE it that you put the tables together like that!!! We have to do that, too (well, we don't have 21, but we have more than can sit at our little dining room table!). I love having everyone at the same table!! Hope you had a glorious Easter! Dana

The TinCan Cottage said...

Love your Family Table! You didn't forgo beauty just because you had a houseful to feed! It is nice to see your attention to detail for your family, it is after all the people and the surroundings that we tend to have memories of first...food is great...but it's are loved ones gathered around us and atmosphere we create! You sure know how to make them special for your family! They are so very lucky! Thanx for sharing your special day! Sunshine & Laughter Christine
