Romantic White Cottage Lunch

Hello Everyone,
     It was another beautiful sunny warm sunny day here so it was perfect to enjoy a romantic lunch in the cottage.
  
I used the creamy white dishes that were already in the cottage.
I have set the table by the Christmas tree so we can enjoy the lights.
There is quiet Christmas music playing in the background.
Candles are glowing.






I guess you can tell that I am in Christmas mode already-I do love the season and so I like to stretch it out as long as I can.
   I have lots more photos to share of our little Christmas Cottage over the next few days- unless you get tired and beg me to stop!

Today,I am joining Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Have prepared the table as well, so delicate and romantic, who likes to sit there, while it is in the light of candles, watching the Christmas tree ... And sure the food is also delicious! That very special home, cozy and you make it magical! The photos are wonderful make me move at that dinner!

A kiss,

Cristina

It looks lovely and so peaceful and serene. I just remembered you had your Thanksgiving already, Seems here we wait for that to fully delve into Christmas, but yes, for me the season is just too short. Looking forward to more of your sweet cottage!

Are you kidding, Carolyn? I'd never want you to stop posting anything about the little cottage, your gardens, or inside your regular house.

Coming to your blog is a light in the darkness. It's a pleasant and happy experience.

Keep sending us more and more of your fabulous "Victoria" quality photos so we can dream of loveliness and beauty. Susan

The word that came to mind as I was looking at your stunning photos was "dreamy." Everything is beautiful, from the tiniest detail to the entire room. I could never get tired of looking at it!
