The Gathering Table is near the kitchen and has given many warm memories of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays and other family meals. It’s sole purpose is to give a place to celebrate something wonderful. Our family is known for looking for something to celebrate. We use the Gathering Table, along with the Dining Room table for our extended family and friends get- togethers. Any other time you will find Mr. Finely Done and I eating our meals at the large kitchen bar.
One of the neat features about the Gathering Table is the two sides that can fold up out of the way when the table is not being used.

After the red and green is put away, the Gathering Table becomes a place for me to bring nature inside.
One of our favorite ways to exercise is hiking. When I’m hiking, I forget I need to move faster to burn more calories.
Instead, I stop to gather acorns, leaves, pine cones, nuts or even twigs. The master designer and decorator above has provided endless and timeless beauty that is nothing short of awesome and magnificent. I never get tired of it. I want to bring it all indoors with me. I can always find a place for it.
Doesn’t the table look wonderful all decked out with dried Magnolia leaves, dried pods and even a few twigs? The chair toppers add warmth and are so easy to make.
