Fancypants Dinner

I had a great time on the weekend…we went to the beach house again (probably the last time for a while….) and had our eldest daughter and her husband and two gorgeous boys come for a couple of nights. I had been to Perth to watch Mary Poppins at the theatre (just fabulous!!) and do a little shopping on Friday.
My niece had asked me to set a table for her monthly dinner group called Fancypants. What a great name!! They meet once a month – every second month is at a restaurant and the other month at a member’s home.
This month was C’s turn. She is living in my sister’s townhouse at the moment which sits right on the water so I felt a beachy look was the way to go. The dining table is white washed and beachy looking so that part was really easy.
I used her flatware and white china and added my soft blue napkins. The large blue bowl in the centre was hers but I added my white cake stand and topped it with candles. We layered the table – white cloth, taupe runner and woven mats that were all in her cupboard. I just added the jute around the candles and also the flatware.
I think the table looks just fabulous with the gorgeous wall print behind. Reports are they all had a great time.

Hi Suzy,

Best greetings, Johanna

This is super cool, Suzy! Literally! It looks refreshingly cool and breezy! I'm sure the FancyPants folks loved every detail!!! You CAN do this for a living, y'know. I'm teaching which allows me to do it, and I also work with occasional clients. I'll just bet one of the local colleges has a community education department that is in need of such an instructor!!!!! :-)
