"Find me a man interesting enough to have dinner with and I will be happy". Lauren Bacall.
Well, Mr. B is such a man. After all these years of marriage, forty-seven, to be exact, we still like to share a quiet dinner and have interesting conversations. He always makes me laugh. He is my bestest friend in life!
Today I decided to prepare a tablescape for such a dinner, planned for Thursday evening. It will be simple and informal, but I always like to make mealtime an event to please the eye as well as the stomach.
The table is set with our everyday dinnerware Franciscan Desert Rose, and the matching stainless flatware and glasses.
In the "olden days" this little flower dish was used for an ashtray. We use it for butter pats.
The yellow chargers are lacquerware from Hobby Lobby.
The centerpiece is a collection of objects to help fill the space on our rectangular table. This is my solution to help balance the table when it is set for only two people. This suits me just fine as I have never been known to be a "minimalist". I can always make room for something else......the "queen of clutter".
The Desert Rose compote holds a few butter pat dishes and a crystal paperweight.......covered by a clear glass cloche.
The ceramic asparagus is by Fitz and Floyd, purchased at Tuesday Morning.
The wooden Easter bunnies are very old. Our daughter, as a little girl, chose them for part of our decorations. They have been in the family and celebrated every Easter for 37 years. I just love traditions and so do our grown children. Now the grandsons enjoy them, too!
The Easter basket is by Jim Shore. It was a gift to us a couple of years ago. The votive candle holder is from Dollar Tree, and I think it is so cute.
The dinner music is playing softly in the background, the candles are lit, and dinner will be served, and of course, I will probably forget to serve something that I have prepared. That is the norm for me........however, I can assure you that the conversation will be interesting and that I love having dinner with Mr. B!
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me! I do so enjoy your visits and love to read your comments. Have a wonderful rest of the week and until next time................
Tea Party Everyday...............why not!
