Romantic Candlelight Dinner

                                                          Hello everyone,
             How quickly the December days are skipping by-before we know it Christmas will be here!
         We have our Christmas tree  up now and so I thought it would be a romantic setting for dinner.The black and white transferware has an elegant look.
                                  Candles add sparkle and romance-not to mention I look a lot better in candlelight!Ha!Ha!
                             I decided that although the roses in the first photo made a beautiful centrepiece this mercury glass tree was a better choice today.
    I always love an excuse to show-off my pretty black and white transferware teacup.

  It is dark now and the candles and Christmas tree lights give the room a magical look.
       A quick stop at the thrift shop and I came home with this pretty silver dish for a few dollars.

                                                  Love my drippy old wax candles.

 Well,that is my romantic Candlelight tablescape for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch .
Also joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and My Romantic Home for Show & Tell.

Thank you for visiting,

I so enjoy following your blog, and love your beautiful china, etc. and your photos are so lovely. I have recently retired and started a blog, I would be honored if you would stop by and check it out.

Thanks, Carolyn, for commenting on my blog. I wish we could sit down together with a cup or coffee (or tea). Have a wonderful Christmas!

It Does look magical with the candlelight and tree lights! I live with these lights all year. I spotted one of my favorite ornaments on your tree...the clapping art deco fairy her! wish I had more of her. Always beautiful here.

Another beautiful table Carolyn. So pretty in the tree light and with the candles burning. I made your Swedish Butter Ball cookies the other day and they were a hit. Yummy. ;)

Pure magic Carolyn! You do set the most beautiful tables I've seen. I love your choice of the black tranferware. It is stunning with the silver and mercury glass.
Your tree is so lovely all lit up and decorated.

O Carolyn you have so many different beautiful transferware. Your romantic black and white teacup is just lovely to look at. I also like the mercury glass very much. Tomorrow it's Saturday and than I shall put my Christmas tree inside. I'm looking forward to make the table for tomorrow night to have supper with my husband, especially when I see all your lovely ideas.
