These tables are the 10-minute variety. You won't find me working all week on a table. As an empty-nester, I only have to set weekday tables for two (sometimes only one). Even my more elaborate guest tables are less than one hour. I have too many other things to do and I bet you do, too!
But just because we lead busy lives, does not mean we have to sacrifice a nice dinner table. I already had this bright parrot tulip centerpiece on the table.
I recently made the chalkboard section of this menu pig, so I decided to use him, too. If guests were coming, I would have changed his tie to somthing with red and yellow (tiny details really impress guests). :)
Quick and simple for a weeknight meal!
