Four Seasons of Formal Dining
Welcome to Estelle's at The Maine House! Darling and I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi. I suppose from the time we were quite small, our grandparents and our parents entertained in their formal dining rooms. These rooms had a rather elegant feel to them. They hosted holidays and special occasions and often times, Sunday dinner after church service. They hosted bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, church socials, bridge clubs, senior tea's and funeral visitations. It has always been a very special place within our homes, where our grandfathers and fathers sat at the head of the table, while our grandmothers and mothers were seated at the opposite end of the dining table. The children encircled the adults on both sides. Oh, the special memories of these formal dining rooms! Darling and I have raised our children in the same manner...and they share in these very special memories!
