I'm joining Susan at "BTNOP" for another fabulous "Tablescape Thursday"! I've just returned from a great surprise birthday weekend for my Mother. All of my brothers and sisters were there. We had a great time! I love spending time with those who are closest to me.
Hubby and I are finally "home alone". All of our chicks have flown the coop and we are alone, together. I've decided to set a romantic table for two, using a few of my favorites from around the house.
I'm starting with a crisp, white tablecloth. I don't know what it is, but a white tablecloth just starts a table off right. I found a bright red runner at Home Goods a few weeks ago. Now I know I said "around the house", but sometimes.... you just gotta!!
I have had these cute blocks for awhile. Stacked on a clear glass cake plate, they drop a Valentine hint.
I started collecting Fiesta right as the Dusty Rose color was discontinued. So, a dinner for two is easy when you only have two plates that match. I am still looking for that color, and have learned that you get enough for 4 when you hear a color is being "retired". The white dessert plates came from Pier 1. I really like the lacy edge. I think that I can use these plates in alot of different ways, so you will probably be seeing them often.
While I was at Home Goods, these candy bars with vintage labels were sitting on the shelf. My mother has quite a collection of vintage cards that she inherited from her great aunt. My sister and I loved to look through them as kids. they really evoke a romantic mood. The chocolate nevers hurts, either!
Thanks to everyone who has left such sweet comments on my posts. I appreciate the words of encouragement! I feel as if I've made a whole new circle of friends. Now go up and click on the button to get back to the party!
