Gentlemans Luncheon

After an afternoon of raking leaves, (I begged out of this chore)
the guys needed a little TLC.
 So, I set up a little lunch by the fire to warm their bones.

The table was set in front of the fireplace in the familyroom.

Just a little table for the two of them

Set with familiar things that speak of home

Even a little reminder of ones youth pictured here

To keep the look masculine I tied the silverplate with rafia.
The little leaf plate added a taste of fall.

Acorns as a filler in the candle holder - another
little taste of autumn

Under the leaf salad plate is the Johnson Brothers Friendly Village
dinner place over a simple everyday brown plate for added color

I just loved this little pitcher....
and here you can see the fire in the background
Thanks guys, I know it was really chilly out there -
I hope this warms you up a bit!


  1. I love every individual thing about this little table from the place setting to the book and glasses and candle holder full of acorns. You created a real MAN's table. Great job.

  2. A real man's table with nary a beer cuzie in sight. Who knew. Loved the post, especially the acornsk!

  3. Your majolica pitcher is indeed wonderful...and I always love the green leaf plates. A lovely vignette by the fireplace. Thank you for sharing your charming design for the guys and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

  4. What a beautiful table. A perfectly elegant gentlemen's table! Gorgeous!

  5. Any gentleman would be happy to sit at this table...very, very pretty.

  6. This is a great table at which a fellow would feel quite comfortable. I think most men have learned to "put up with" all the frills and whimsy we often use when setting tables, but this would make a guy feel quite special to have something so uniquely tailored to his gender! Good job!
