With the Holidays over and the house guests gone, it’s time for a little quality time with your significant other. This week, as we join Susan of Between Naps On The Porch for another Tablescape Thursday, we've set the table for Date Night. Send the kids to your mother-in-law or to a friend and start the New Year right.
Because we don't think you need to have twenty different sets of china to create something special, we've anchored the table with good quality classic white everyday dinnerware atop simple, inexpensive chocolate brown, paisley embroidered placemats.
I love blue and white and found open stock tableware at Home Goods just for two. I used the matching saucer only as a bread plate and simple white Apilco ramekins from Williams-Sonoma as individual butter dishes. Hotel beaded flatware surround the place setting, and of course stemware for a good Pinot or Shiraz. A sturdy highball for water and Hotel white cloth napkin with a simple silver napkin ring finish it off.
