Service with a smile...

Recently and while attending my son's wedding, I was so very astounded with the service provided during the reception dinner. Waiters marched in in exact numbers for each row, with a plate in each hand. Stopping behind each guest, servers delivered plates simultaneously on the elongated tables.

Such and elegant and stylish touch, I thought. No need to stall while others at the table wait to be served, as victuals becomes chilled or wilted. I understand this technique of service is referred to as "the wave".

Keeping fresh fruits and veggies edible until they are eaten can be a real challenge. Placed in those "green " bags which can be found in the grocery store seems to help. Still Tasty offers guidance as to just how long these items will last in your frig.

These cute little hand towels had to be purchased and added to the luggage for return to the US. Scoot-scoots are ever-present in Bermuda and I loved the masculine represented Vespa with golf clubs in tow.
