Most of the time, my breakfast table doesn't have any of the leaves in it and is just a wonderful big 54" round table. But when I need it, it does have four 16" leaves that I can insert and it will seat 12. I am thrilled that this area is big enough for me to expand the table when I need to. (obviously this is a picture from Christmas.)
So with the phone calls coming in and everyone able to get together on short notice, definitely the time to get some of those leaves out and expand away. No time for a fancy tablescape, just figure out something simple.
I added a couple of leaves to the table and then used the same rooster arrangement that I already had on the table. Oh, yeah, I could borrow these candleholders from the buffet in the dinign room.
These are the dishes I am using, but since I didn't have 9 of these chargers, I opted for none.
I was serving buffet style, so just the placemats and a nice linen napkin.
Our quick menu was -
Tossed Salad (everything fresh from the garden)
Coffee, Tea, and Wine
Desert - Chocolate Fudge Cake - ( from a box)
Still not bad for 3 hours notice and we all had plenty to eat. Everyone agreed that we will do it all again on Super Bowl Sunday. I can't wait. I am planning the menu already. Lots of nibbles and finger foods.
