the trick is to have different decorations for different season in plastic boxes storoed away. I just dragged out the fall basket and it contained things amassed over the years like fake pumpkins and fruit and leaf garlands. and those dishes may look like fine china but they are the Pier One specialty. I confess I got the silver from my mother and I have a ton of it.... even ice cream forks and pickle forks. She was a belle who moved north but never gave up the rules of setting tables of personalized stationary. Her's was always Blue initials on blue and mine is Green on Ivory.
we all become our mothers eventually........gasp
