Tablescape Thursday - Italian Family Dinner

I'm participating in Tablescape Thursday, so make sure you click through to visit the other posts.  Special thanks to Susan for hosting one of our favorite parties!

This tablescape was done for one of the first newspaper  cooking columns  I wrote!  I love it so much, I recently decided I needed to set it again.  First, though,  I'm going to share the photos with you!

I love using these big pasta bowls ... from Italy.  Placing boxes of tubes of tomato paste and anchovy paste ... with dry pasta and big bulbs of garlic ... makes a cute tablescape!
