Tablescape Thursday.....a bit of a private dinner for two!

Time for Tablescape Thursday once again.....thanks to Susan at , http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/, for being our
hostess and bringing us all together for fun. Be sure and check out her blog and all the other tablescape posts this week!

I promised this week, no more dining room for a bit.
So I put together just today a bit of a romantic dinner spot in the living room in front
of the fire place.
Although it is way to hot to have a fire, we can still be romantic by candlelight!
I used a plant stand with a round mirror on top to make us a little bistro table.
The regular dining room chairs got softened and blended with the table setting by draping
them with some sheer window panels.
Menu;( Some of our favs)
Some Shrimp Cocktails
BBQed Steaks
Green Vegetable Salad
Drumstick Ice Cream
(Click on photos to enlarge)

Don't ask me why this photo would not stay the way I edited it.
Used just our everyday flatware this time, with roses on the handles.

A romantic place by candle light, with some good wine, good music, kiss or two, tee hee!

I like to have levels of things, like different heights in my candles etc.
I found the pink wine glasses at a garage sale for 50 cents each.

Layered table with pink table cloth, table runners I had made years and years ago from our left over wedding fabrics and used my black linen napkins again.

I layered newly found mauve pink and white "Botanic Pink" dessert plates
by Portmeirion( bought the cake plate too, hoping I can find more pieces of this in the future, like tea cups and saucers) with my
"Old Britain Castles" transfer ware dinner plates .

Ok, now it is time for you to leave.....as we want to be alone.
Tee Hee
