The Gift of Gab

Since so many of us are entertaining these days, I thought I would show you a little thing I like to do that is hospitable for my guests, but also makes it a little easier on me. Fill empty lemonade bottles with water. Then put some fresh mint in with the water. You could also use raspberries or anything small enough to fit through the bottle neck that matches your decor. Make them ahead of time and have them in the fridge so the flavors can work their magic. Place them throughout your table so guests can easily refill their water glasses and so you don't have to jump up and down throughout your dinner.

Love this. And what a chic table setting. Where is the best resource for getting like these?

Hello! I set the table at a friend's house who was hosting her Holiday staff party on Sunday night. This kind of long setting works well for the long communal table styles. The bottles are from Lorina lemonade. However, I have seen the same bottles from other lemonade companies lately.
