Cheers to you...

SPT for Tuesday Sept. 9~ Because of a Blogger...
entertaining/parties
I don't have a lot of time so I won't be able to refer to all of the wonderful bloggers who have inspired me in this category, but I still wanted to participate so here goes...
There is an item for entertaining that I have seen used time and time again on blogs. An item that I have access to but never use. Never. But because of the inspiration found through other bloggers I am excited to take the plunge and...

Finally use my wedding china!
That's right~ in 18 years of marriage I have never used my china. But all of the pictures I have seen of beautifully set tables for those special occasions, or even better, for those no occasion, just because I love you moments, have inspired me to start surprising my family with an excitingly gorgeous formal table every so often. And who knows maybe I'll even invite a family or two of friends over for a formal dinner some time as well. I'm telling you, I've caught the bug. I want to be an entertainer extraordinaire. I always have been one- in my mind. I'm ready to start putting some of my ideas, the old and all of the new that I've learned from you fabulous bloggers, to use. Life is precious and way too short~ it's time to party baby!
Here's to parties,
to joyful dinners served on beautiful wedding china,
and to you my lovely, inspiring, life changing
fellow bloggers.
CHEERS!

Good to know that we are not the only ones who have never used the stuff. We have been married 6 1/2 years and never used it.... Maybe we all should!

Good for you for deciding to use it.

this is a fantastic idea! i have pulled out my wedding china on only a few occassions, and only when it was just the three of us. and now i'm remembering how great we all felt when we set the table with it.

love your *cheers* photo :)

I use my china from time to time. My kidlets think it is so special to eat on the fancy dishes. They actually seem better behaved when the table is 'fancy'.

Usually 3 or 4 times in December we turn out the lights (except for the Christmas tree lights)and light candles for dinner. My kids love it! (And the joke's on them...they don't realize it, but they are a lot quieter when we have candlelight dinners!) We do this usually on a whim so the food is likely to be hot dogs or something mundane like that, but it's amazing how "special" the meal becomes! I don't even have any wedding china, but a nice tablecloth and candlelight work wonders!

we use ours occasionally for friends over, holidays, special family dinners occasionally....I try to think "what are you saving it for?" and enjoy it!
