Show us your entertaining posts


We all love to entertain in our 'cottages'. Our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create wonderful seasonal tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind.
This week long Blog Party is open to everyone.
