 Our “Hostess with the Mostess” hosted our latest book club discussion at her house.  Once again, she put together another beautiful tablescape – this one with a Valentine’s Day theme.

 How cute is this? Lovely for a lunch with some gal pals!  This red and black color scheme would also work very well for the holidays, a winter or ski theme.

No detail left forgotten:  It wasn’t good enough just to give us all a candy bar favor inserted in the pocket – no, instead she wrapped each candy bar in red paper and then covered the red paper with another handmade wrapper with a rose and each of our names printed on them (along with a decorative-hole-punched-edge)

The book we discussed was Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.  This classic tale was originally released in 1938 and has never gone out of print.  We had a pretty good discussion about the characters and the traits they possessed.  None of us disliked the book.  A couple of us liked the book, a couple of us loved the book.  All of us agreed it was very well-written.
