Welcome to the 45th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s Tablescape Thursday and I positively love this day! Thursdays are filled to overflowing with links to some of the most delicious eye candy to be found anywhere across the Blogasphere!
Today, you are my guest. And, I’m so glad you are here! How was your journey? I know you must be tired after such a long drive.
I have your room all ready. You just snuggle right down here into this soft, comfy bed and relax.
I thought you might be a bit thirsty after your long trip.
…how does a nice cup of hot tea sound?
…with a tasty cinnamon, mulling-spice spoon, for a little added flavor.
Dinner will be ready in a bit, but you’ll find some little bug bites just waiting for you underneath this silver dome.
Now, I’ll just tip-toe out and let you relax and rest up a bit.
HOSPITALITY, n. The virtue which induces us to feed and lodge certain persons who are not in need of food and lodging. Author: Ambrose Bierce.
For ’tis always fair weather…when good fellows get together; With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear. Author: Richard Hovey
It is a sin against hospitality, to open your doors and darken your countenance. Proverb Quotes
When hospitality becomes an art, it loses its very soul. Author: Max Beerbohm
What is there more kindly than the feeling between host and guest? Author: Aeschylus
Hospitality sitting with gladness. Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Let me live in my house by the side of the road, Where the race of men go by; They are good, they are bad; they are weak, they are strong, Wise, foolish,–so am I; Then why should I sit in the scorner’s seat, Or hurl the cynic’s ban? Let me live in my house by the side of the road, And be a friend to man. Author: Sam Walter Foss
The mind is not a hermit’s cell, but a place of hospitality and intercourse. Author: Charles Horton Cooley
When friends are at your hearthside met, Sweet courtesy has done its most If you have made each guest forget That he himself is not the host. Author: Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Be it not in thy care. Go, I charge thee, invite them all; let in the tide Of knaves once more; my cook and I’ll provide. Author: William Shakespeare
