Fine din­ing

YOURS (UK) - - Over To You - Carol Fletcher, Stroud

I in­vited friends over for lunch the other week and wanted to make the ta­ble look pretty, but didn’t have a lot of spare cash. So I bor­rowed a snowy white table­cloth from my moth­erin-law (she’d em­broi­dered it by hand for her ‘bot­tom drawer’ 55 years ago). Then I begged my sis­ter to lend me four plates from her bone china set and I bought four dainty cups for just £2 from a char­ity shop. Fi­nally I bagged a 50p bunch of flow­ers and filled the cups with flow­er­heads for ta­ble dec­o­ra­tions. The over­all ef­fect looked very pretty (see teacup pic­ture above) and didn’t cost me a for­tune.
