Just to clarify, Caroline hates Gerber daisies, not daisies.
So, the wedding gifts were moved off the bed in the guest room and downstairs to a display area. Mucho pewter. Mucho.
Caroline: This is only half the pewter.
A-L: Wow. That's a lot of pewter.
Caroline: And these dishes are Denby.
A-L: Wow. They're beautiful.
Caroline: Dave picked them out. They're English.
A-L: They look Scandinavian. Did I tell you my mom's from Finland?
Caroline: They're English. Denby is English. And this is our flatware. (Hands me a serving spoon.)
A-L: Wow. Very beautiful.
Caroline: It's stainless, not sterling.
A-L: I won't tell anyone.
