What is romance to you? Is it snuggling by the fire? Hiking through nature with the person of your dreams? Or is it the definition given by Merriam-Webster?
“A feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.”
I am a “romantic” at heart and love all things related to adventure, imagination and just about anything that creates an escape from the everyday routines of life. So, when approached by Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate to join a group of extremely talented ladies in this tablescape bloghop, I was quick to “hop” on board. It is an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this group of bloggers.
Preparing the Table
A dear friend of the family cleaned out some of her china recently and gave me several pieces from her collection. It’s a double honor today, to use some of her treasures.
The floral salad plate is part of her Lenox, Pinafore pattern. It’s such a delicate pattern of pinks and greens, I thought it perfect for a romantic tablescape.
The depression glass bell was a gift from my sweet sister. I found the crystal and brass votives at a local flea market. Pulling it all together for a romantic dinner with my hubby, was the most fun of all. Yes, it’s a bit fru-fru for a man, but he loves me regardless!
A Feeling of Excitement
Nothing more fitting to scatter across the table than a few SweetTarts. My daughter and I LOVE them! It was a challenge to arrange them on the table without eating them.
My mother-in-love gifted these champagne flutes to us one Christmas. They are pink stemmed from the Breast Cancer Awareness Shop for a Cure.
A Little Mystery
As the sun begins to set, I plug in the lights beneath the table for a little extra ambiance.
The French chairs are his and her antiques. How fun that he has his chair with elevated arms and I have mine… with more relaxed arms. It’s like the chair has been pulled out for me by more than one gentleman….my man and the creator of this chair from generations ago.
A couple of gifts for the man who is the absolute love of my life. He is a server, provider, giver and wonderful father. I am blessed to be his wife.
Light the candles…
The cupcakes for the cupcake stands are on the way…
