Dinner and A Movie

On Monday we are having dinner and a movie at church for couples.

We have a small church and will be having only 6 couples attending.  I'm going to set up 3 round tables and have two couples at each table.  

My thinking (at the great suggestion of my husband) is that each table can be set up so that everyone can see the movie easily.

I am planning white tablecloths, low candles, flowers, pretty dishes and napkins.  We'll be eating chicken, spinach salad, fruit and desserts.  We'll probably have sparkling juice, too.

The movie is the 1938 Academy Award winning, "You Can't Take It With You" starring Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, and Lionel Barrymore.  It was directed by Frank Capra.  Its such a good movie!

I'll be sure to take photos.

That's what I'm working on this weekend.  What are you up to?


  1. My husband moderated a panel of three married couples this morning at a lovely Valentine Breakfast (sponsored by the men who meet for prayer breakfast once a month. We finished a jigsaw puzzle after lunch and have been sitting with my feet up alternately reading and napping....

    The evening you're planning sounds VERY nice. I'll look forward to photos! Who will be serving?

  2. I'm sure it will be a lovely time together -- and you will set pretty tables.

  3. What a fun time! Your table and menu sound great; I'm sure everyone will have a wonderful time.

  4. What a great idea! I haven't given much thought to Valentines this year. Not sure why.
    Right now I'm busy sprucing up the gazebo and surrounding area for spring! 86 degrees here in Texas today!

  5. That sounds like fun! Nothing like that here. The boys are coming tomorrow for luge time...that's my excitement. 🍪🥛

  6. Sounds like the perfect way to spend the evening! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. Sounds like a fun evening. Gary and I watch old movies a lot, mostly just the 2 of us, but sometimes with another couple who also appreciates the old movies.

    You Can't Take It with You is a really fun movie. We own it, as part of a 6-movie Frank Capra collection. We watch it every few years.

    Have fun,

  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
