You may look at this image and wonder how it is connected to our block party theme of Around The Table. In this cottage this is our dining area. A French marble café table surrounded with a settee and 2 chairs is where I would offer up a wedge of pungent cheese and slice of baguette. Wine anyone?

With coffee in hand this would be my view while watching passers-by out the window ~

It would not be unheard of to dine in our living room on trays all around our coffee table. We’re none too fancy here ~

Truth be told we’re mostly found around the table while in our garden. The table(s) we have there hold party fare, morning breakfast & sunset appetizers. Many a celebration ’round these patios! Much living is done in the California outdoors ~ a good reality, indeed, since our cottage is so small.

It never rains in California – so the song says, but just in case I’ve made a hide-away in a garden shed. A great spot to gather around the table.

Happy to join in this first block party – thanks Melissa.
