White and Hydrangea

Posted June 20, 2011 by Christina

Good Monday Morning!
I trust you had a good weekend and a well celebrated Father's day.
We had a simi impromptu dinner here last night and I would say that it went fairly smoothly.  I think that we should entertain more often.  I am not sure that this space would put me at ease though!
It is very beautiful but the thought of all of that white scares me a little!
What about you do you entertain?  Do you enjoy it?

So glad your dinner went well. We don’t seem to have enough time to entertain much these days. Love this dining room, not sure how clean we could keep it with the kids. Have a great day!

Haha no spaghetti sauce! So true! Would have to be vanilla sorbet only. But it is pretty and I get wobbly knees at the sight of big bunches of hydrangeas like that.

Love entertaining – from dinner parties to champagne brunches at the beach – all a fabulous excuse to gather a fun bunch of people to share good food, good wine & much conversation.

What a fantastic space! Love the chairs. The centerpiece has just the right amount of color to really pop too :)

I absolutely love all the white (it is what I have) but would feel more comfortable if the chairs were slipped (or even better, leather). I have found that white is the easiest to clean (no faded spots when cleaning). LOVE that chandelier!

C…a beautiful room can soon become shabby (but not chic) when spots/stains appear. The white is lovely, but the chairs need to be leather! Then you could enjoy the space and not worry at all. Spaghetti sauce is a big no-no, unless you’re the only one dining. xx’s

I live in a city where many homes are just not big enough for large gatherings, ours is fairly large by typical standards but if we want to entertain a group, we usually go to a restaurant.
Living in apartments in a city changes all the entertaining ideas most house dwellers have .. it can be a challenge sometimes !

great space – although not if I’m entertaining my nieces/nephews! I enjoy entertaining but prefer to keep it to a very small group of people I know well – it keeps me calmer and if something goes wrong, it’s not that big a deal (I’m such a perfectionist that I’m very hard on myself!)

Ours was wonderful…though not quite as gorgeous as the image!!

Love to entertain, but with my family it must be on something washable or disposable! All that white begs for them to slop some red wine around!

I LIKE to entertain but I want everything to be perfect…although I certainly don’t expect that in others…too much self-imposed pressure. Can anyone identify with that?

LOOOOVE this room!

Beautiful way to start a Monday…or a Tuesday!
