Jolie table, ça donne envie de s'y installer.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Martine. Makes me want to know what's on the menu. smile

Très chique (spelling?)...very inviting. That's what you do every mid week?
Ginnie Hart: Wouldn't that be something if any of us did this every mid-week, Bonnie! HA!

what a stunning table, resulting in a superb image

love, love the dusty rose hues
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sherri. It was most appealing!
That is stylish Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Frank! smile
Wow - what a beautiful image, Ginnie! I love your comp - seeing the flowers through the glasses... oh lovely!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, sweet Elizabeth.
Voilà  une table joliment décorée.
J'aime ton angle de prise de vue.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Pascale. Merci.

This is very impressive Ginnie, all that lovely clean glass
Ginnie Hart: It seemed most appealing set up like that, Chris...for the rich and famous! De Haar was known for hosting many of the Hollywood celebs during its heyday.

Yes, there is always something to celebrate. I am so glad that the boys in Thailand could be rescued - what a positive news today! An elegant image!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, I love that thought, Philine. When I queued this image, they weren't all out yet. What an incredible celebration felt around the world!

This is quite the table, Ginnie. Now I have to be careful that I don't knock over some of the glasses and my mom taught me, don't worry about all the knives and forks, eat from "outside in"......
Great POV. (Glad I don't do the dishes)
Ginnie Hart: Definitely eat from outside in, Astrid, and no one will know whatever else we might not know. I bet we'd both have fun setting the table, though, right?! smile
Very elegant Ginnie...I like the three wine glasses each
Ginnie Hart: Almost more elegant you cannot get, Bill, especially with 3 wine lasses each?!

Imagine preparing all those intricate table napkins, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I know, Lisl. Imagine also setting the table like that!
oh wow, i would be under dressed and intimidated haha, that's such a beautiful picture!!!!!
Ginnie Hart: I don't think I have anything in my present wardrobe that would be anywhere near appropriate, Elaine. HA! Thanks.

Did you want to sit down and tuck in Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Well, not exactly, Chad. HA! I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall, perhaps? smile
A lovely table setting!
Ginnie Hart: Not quite what I'm used to, Mary, but YES.
This is a really nice table arrangement. We celebrated our SIL's 40th.yesterday evening, the table didn't look quite as 'posh' as this.
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if most of us would feel comfortable in a setting like this, Brian? (sigh)

What a beautiful table setting you've captured here!! The low PoV works well here and I love those rose-shaped napkins.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It's fun, isn't it!
WHat an elegant view. I like the clarity of the glass.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ruthie. I do, too.

The other day you were trying to refrain from window-shopping and now this??

When everyone has his/her own butter knife - that is when you pay macro money for mouse dropping size steaks. So watch it!

It is also true that a table laid like this, is always so grand.
Ginnie Hart: That castle was host to Hollywood celebs, Louis, so I'm sure they knew how to put on the Ritz!
a very well set table with all of the crystal glasses reflecting it Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. Some people know how to pull it off. smile

Now that is very grand! I wish my wine glasses sparkle like that; alas they have suffered in the dishwasher!
Ginnie Hart: That's the thing about dishwashers, Alan. Not the same as washing by hand!
Someone's done a good job of polishing that glass!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Tom!
Oh you will have to hire me to be your personal butler!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! In your wildest dreams, LC. grin

The glass is incredibly sparkly smile
Oh, love how they presented the napkins! Something tells me the menu would be exquisite. Gorgeous capture!
