Dinner for Two




                                                                 Hello everyone,
                                        I hope you week is going well. We missed the predicted storm yesterday which was fine by me. The kiddos had a day off from school though anyway on the fear of freezing rain.
                         I have been going out to the 'boathouse' a bit more lately as the temperatures are warming a little and the sun is giving a little more heat. So, I set up for a little dinner for two in the small conservatory.

          As always, I have used a mix of old and new china but with a brown and white theme.

                      The teapot and vase are 'Brown Botanical' by Skye McGhie.
                          The cupid plates came from Homesense a few years ago.

 Whenever spring arrives I am sure I will enjoy hours in here as it is my newest 'playhouse'!

I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday - Bernideen's Tea Time blog for Open House and My Romantic Home for Show & Tell.

     Hope you have a wonderful day.

     Carolyn

What a beautiful setting! It must be fun to be cozy and warm inside while gazing out at the snow. I love your brown and white patterns!

Hi Carolyn,

So beautiful... your home is absolutely calm due to your colour scheme. Love it.

Hope you have a great pre-w/end.

This is a lovely tablescape.

Your teapot is unique and awesome.

Carolyn said...

Hi Phyllis,
Thank you for your visit! The chargers came from a trip to Maine and I think I got them at the Christmas Tree Shop but if not there then Target, a few years ago.

My favourite colour for tableware, brown and cream. The table looks beautiful and the pink tulips add a wonderful the sparkle.

Hi Carolyn,
What a lovely table and love the sweet little birdie napkin ring:-) It would be a pleasure to linger over a meal and gaze out over the snowy garden, I love sitting by windows all snuggly in the winter...
Hugs,

Dear Carolyn,
Your fifth photo, with the sunlit tulips and garden-maiden lingering alluringly outside the window panes is beautiful and mystical. A wonderful capture, talented creature. :-)
Blessings,
Fiordelisa

Those Peonies are stunning. Sadly we cannot grow Peonies in Auckland, it is too humid, however they fly them up from the South Island in November and I go mad buying and taking all my shots for my paintings during the short time I can buy them. I had great success last November with lots of wonderful images I took to start painting again this year.

I also love that red transfer ware, so pretty.
