Sometimes on Sundays, we have a 
few seniors over for lunch.

Now that winter is here we love
keeping warm and having a meal
by the fire.  Friendly Village is
a nice design for just that.

We find we can serve several
people for no more than it costs
the two of us to go out to a restaurant.

If you collect this pattern you
already know the plates come
in many sizes according to when
they were made and it can be a 
challenge finding more in the 
size you are looking for - these
are the 10 1/2" size.

Here is the menu:

also with Chicken in It

with Caramel Pecan Glaze

A mixed green salad,
Breads, iced tea, hot
tea and coffee


  1. My favorite pattern, it makes a beautiful Winter table-setting. Thank you for sharing.
    Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year dear friend.

  2. Your menu is perfect for a dinner by the fire. Wow. Love the quilt.

  3. Such beauty and inspiration... As ever! Happy New Year!

  4. What a lovely winter idea. Fun to have in friends and share a good meal. Your setting is just lovely.
    Happy New Year.

  5. What a wonderful blessing to share your table with others! It's true, eating at home is so much cheaper than dining out! Your tablescape is beautiful, I love the old quilt used! What a lovely meal you have planned! A wonderful way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon!
