I did the duplicate of this page for my album with hidden journaling behing the photo. The bottom photo was printed at home, it looks much better than it scanned.
Vivian found these plates at Big Lots for $10 & $15 for a box of 16 pieces. For $25, she had place settings for 8 people. XXXXXX asked why she needed another set of dishes. Her answer was that the white china was too white and this was more “springy.” Hmmm, this could be setting precedence. Now to get the ladies to agree to a fall time tea. A battery lit vine with lavender flowers and a plate of cookies were placed along the center of the table. Vivian used things from the wedding and bought 3 hummingbird music boxes to complete her decorations. For the chairs she used inexpensive pillowcases with tulle and ribbons. Xxxxxxxx was over serving the food and needed to be close to the buffet, so she sat with us.
