When Michael got home from work, we tinkered with a couple of different ways to set it up, and ultimately decided to put it the same way we had our old table. Only difference is... this one looks MUCH better. :)
It's going to take some getting used to. The table is taller, and square (our old one was oval), so it's just a completely different style. Now we can't wait to have people over and entertain!
A few pictures from yesterday...
The table, after it first arrived. This is with the butterfly leaf in use, so the table is huge, with the 8 chairs around it. We don't have room to keep it open like this on a regular basis--this will only happen when we have a larger group over!
The set-up we finally decided on. Table centered in the middle of the room, six chairs around it.
Tessa has been extra snuggly since we returned from the honeymoon. Love her.
