Lift up your hearts and dance round the maypole, run to your true love and dance all the day.
At first I tried to dream up a tablesetting with a Russian International Workers Day theme, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Maybe I'll keep my eye out for some little toy tanks at yard sales and use them next year.
But this year . . .
My daughter and my first and second grade granddaughters will *dine* with me. I'm planning to serve (hold on to your hats!) grilled cheese sandwiches, chopped fruit (heavy on the strawberries), pretend tea (apple juice), a few potato wedges, pickles, and ice cream for dessert.
I'm not a big fan of pink. So how did I end up with a pink tablecloth???? Yep! The same way you ended up with a few pink items. I washed a white tablecloth with a set of red napkins - a little mistake that I have to admit I've done more than once. Actually, I think it came out rather well considering "surprise tie-dye" usually turns out blotchy, heavy in some spots and light in others.
Well, just thought I'd throw out that little bit of worthless information in case you wanted to get a pink tablecloth and were wondering where I bought mine.
The china was inherited from my mother. She had what she called a dessert set (square plates, larger than salad plates but smaller than dinner plates) and a large square bowl in the pattern for years. One day when she was in her mid sixties, she walked into a consignment shop and there was the whole set, place settings for 12 and a number of serving pieces. She thought she'd died and gone to heaven.
