family table

I grew up in quite a numerous family (just to give you an idea, my mother had 8 brother and sisters, they all have a minimum of 3 children ...) I can't count the opportunities we had to spend great high quality time together ... I will always cherish the lovely family dinners we had together for every little occasion, sitting on a LONG table ( + a few indispensable occasional tables). My grand parents had a monastery table ... A very long (and very old & guenuine) table that can "host" more than 18 people ... I love that heirloom diner table .. That's probably why I have also grow a particular liking for long diner table ..

Here is a selection of what we can find here ...

How lovely to have a large family! My Mom has 7 siblings, so I have many, many cousins. However, I've always lived far away from them, so sadly I'm not that close to that side of my family. Most of my husband's family live nearby, so I love the huge family get togethers.

I really like long skinny tables, but I never have quite the right room for one. I love everything about that blue wall in the first picture!
