Last week was my monthly dinner club. We hosted a wine and cheese party to celebrate the holidays.

If you’re not familiar with my virtual dinner club, it is a group of 5 blogger friends that joined up 2 years ago.

Every month we create a tablescape and menu to go with a theme we have chosen that month.

We post our tablescapes the last Thursday of each month and the menu is the last Saturday of the month.

We rotate which one has each course, and we post a recipe to go with our theme.

If you missed this months tablescape, you can see that here.

The winner will be featured in the holiday issue of Cottages and Bungalows magazine in 2023.
