Today, the kids are busy and so I am alone with the hubby in New Mexico. So Friday, I moved the little Pottery Barn table into the living room. A quiet dinner by the fire place.
What happier flowers during the winter than tulips?
Just because I am by my self for dinner, doesn't mean I can't have a pretty table.
With the old coronation flatware and my great Aunt's China... what could be more sentimental and sweet.
The wonderful thing about older china is the accessory pieces are so special. Don't you love the double handled bouillon bowl?
With an old silver napkin ring, a yard sale find and a pretty yellow damask napkin to give the table a little more color. I am ready for a quiet dinner for one.
A moment to take in the weekend and prepare for the week ahead.
Now I know that people love to layer fancy dishes of all different types but how special for this pattern to be repeat.... very classic.
For the centerpiece, I just took a hydrangea blossom, added some tulips and green mums... for a special table setting.
With only a few flowers and my favorite china, I can have a dinner set for a queen.. or just me.
And because it is Sunday, I found this scripture that sums up my day: Mark 6:31, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."
