Long story short, we chatted, phoned, and he came here from England for a visit. We were married nine months later and here we are thirteen years hence!! The time has flown and neither of us can believe it's been thirteen years. He is my best friend and we complete each other.
Soooooooooo, what does this have to do with tablescaping, you ask? Well, here is our anniversary dinner table for two! As I've said before, he's not really "into" the dish thing...but is very tolerant of my obsession. He did say this was a pretty table.
So it is just the two of us for dinner...
It's early enough in the evening so that it is still light outside...
These are my beautiful new dishes. There were in Victoria magazine and I tracked them down! This is only the second time that I have used them. And do I have PLANS!!!
This is the bird's eye view...with my signature crooked silver placement. I have to work on that :-)
I re-used my birthday flowers...
What did we have for dinner? Turkey meatloaf, mashed potates, salad for me only, peas (for him), brussel sprouts (for me). It was delicious. Ice cream later for dessert!
