Dinner for One

I'm joining Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Be sure and visit her site to see all the beautiful tablescapes for this week.

When I find myself home alone, which doesn't happen often, it's time to relax and indulge.

It's the perfect time for dinner and a movie.

Candlelight is always calming and beautiful, whether you are having a crowd or just yourself for dinner.

Dinner in the Family room is a treat when served on a mirrored tray. My plate is from the Fleur de lis collection. I love the detail edging and the fact that it is square in shape.

My salad plate is from Lori Siebert and purchased from TJ Maxx. Instead of girl's night out, I am enjoying girl's night in.

I hope you enjoyed my tablesetting and are able to find some quite time of your own.

All the best,

Pin It!

Anita, that is just as cute as can be. I bought some of the tiny dishes that say, "Girls love choclate." I love the "Girls Night Out," too. That's a very clever tablescape and perfect for those times when you want to treat yourself!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

I posted to some else tonight that I love this idea of a table for one. We deserve the attention!

Don't forget to join us on this weekend for the final Christmas in July Tablescape Party on Saturday (some may spill into Sunday since the 25th is Saturday. I am having a real CIJ family dinner on Sunday, but will post my table photos Friday night and Mr. Linky will be up and ready at Playing Dishes.

The table for one is perfect. I really like the tray/frame on the bottom.

Just plain gorgeous! How I would love to have those large pictures but I cannot do it myself and love the background I have. I will do it one day when I tire of what I have. Your pictures and blog are wonderful. Fantastic the way you put everything together. You are one that raises the bar when it comes to tablescaping! :) Wow!
Thank you also for your very sweet visit to my blog and kind post and words of encouragement!
I appreciate that so very much!

I LOVE "me" time spent in all alone and you have created the perfect setting for it! Your candleholders are lovely and you will be able to relax all the more by the glow of cozy candlelight!
