BJ, at Sweet Nothings, set up an amazing table, in her son's vineyard. Absolutely wonderful. If you get a chance, I recommend stopping by. There is one photo, of the table, with the vineyard as a backdrop, that is painterly perfect.

Funny we had chicken and corn on the cob the other night and it didn't look anything like that. Maybe I shouldn't have the hard lemonade until after dinner is ready from now on.
