When our kids were little we would put them to bed early once per week, and we would have a date night at home. But our kiddos are wise to us, now. Now, they just sneak downstairs and try to steal our dessert. Hmmph!
However, I thought I would post a table for two table scape today.
I'll be linking up to between naps on the porch for Tablescape Thursday. Hope you'll get a chance to stop by and see all the pretty ideas...
You are cordially invited
for afternoon tea.
It's a special occasion
when it's just my friend and me.
You don't have to wear anything fancy.
You don't have to style your hair.
Just bring your friendship.
I'll meet you there.
First the table runner: It's a mix of red and gold tapestry and silk with a
braided bouillon fringe.
Next the flower arrangement: Just something I had in our bedroom -- but it looks so pretty when used on a table for two.
Vannila Sugar Cookie scented candles -- mmmm -- they smell so delicious!
Just love the woven straw chargers because they add another texture to the table -- and they provide contrast to the dark table and runner.
The dinner plate is red, the salad plate is green, the napkin is an antique,
and the little white bread plate -- well they are Crate and Barrel...
but I bought a set of 8 at Annie's for under $6.00
Because we'll be having coffee with dessert, I thought a Mimosa might be a nice treat...
Coffee always tastes so fresh when made in a French Press.
Hope you enjoyed your visit. Stop by again any time!
Until then, Only by His Grace,
