I've imagined a nice, quiet dinner for just Mr.H&H and myself - our girls are off somewhere and it's just the two of us for the evening. I've set up a pretty table inside in the dining room. Outside the evenings are much cooler now, and it's cozy in here with all the candles lit. I couldn't resist using my all-white everlasting love bouquet (see the post on that here), and created a white and cream setting.
For a table cover I'm using one of my favorite fabric remnants, which for years had lined the inside of my kitchen hutch. (check it out)
I enjoyed pulling together casual, rustic pieces in a creative way to make a peaceful backdrop for our meal.
The little birds made an appearance earlier (look here), I love catching a glimpse of them from behind the tall candlesticks.
As always, it's mix and match crystal at this house. I only have two of the Mikasa gold-banded wine glasses left - remnants of an earlier time -
The candlight reflects and glows against the crystal .
Salt and pepper acorns set the mood for fall,
as do rust, gold and green plaid cotton napkins with gold threads. Copper napkin rings add a bit of shine and texture.
The three tall candle holders create a dramatic backdrop for the pitcher of flowers.
These woven straw placemats add additional texture, and contrast nicely against the subltle colors of the table cloth.
The table is all set and ready for an intimate dinner for two. I think I'll cook a delicious meal, and after we're done eating, it will be Mr.H&H's turn to do the dishes!
Thanks again, Susan, and thank you everyone for stopping by. Leave me a comment to let me know you were here! And remember, details of my giveaway are coming soon!
