Crowd the Table
Have you ever heard the advice, “If you want everyone to have a good time, crowd the table!”? Recently, a round dinner table set for 9 had to be turned quickly into seating for 11. The maître d’ did not think it could be done, but our host stayed with it. All eleven of us, at a 60″ round table! It was fun to be crowded. Conversation flowed. I can’t remember such laughter. Can you think of ways to crowd your table?
I agree, Ellen! Also I love the painting and would love to know the artist. I clicked on SOURCE which took me to the wonderful Jane Austen’s World blog – but bogged down there reading about fox hunting at HIghclere…

Well, January 6th can’t come soon enough, can it?!
The artist is Jules-Alexandre Grün.
Thank you for the comment, Frances.

My best crowded dinner party EVER was a church mixer. OMG, my 20 year old cat walks in with Miss Bunny, humping her (Miss Bunny was his stuffed animal) and yawing loudly.
Pastor thought it was GREAT. Cat lived to 22. Thanks to Miss Bunny. Still cannot believe this happened to me.
