I will look for any excuse to set a table. It’s my favorite thing to do. And since I don’t like to leave things for the last minute, I set up the foursome table for tomorrow afternoon. Viburnum, dogwood and white petunias glow on the table and in a large galvanized tray at the window. A meandering vermicelli-stitched quilt serves as the tablecloth. Bright, springy, cheerful – all a table should be this time of year. Oh, and dessert first – simple plates of cherries. Have a good holiday!
