I love setting the table. Dishes and table linens appeal like nothing else. Walking through displays in stores or looking at various magazines inspires me. This was the table I set for a romantic Valentine's day dinner with my husband. I moved the round kitchen table in front of the living room fireplace. The tablecloth is just a piece of organza type fabric that I cut and hemmed. I made napkin ties out of the same fabric and tied them loosely. Flowers, candles and cinnamon hearts completed the table.
Christmas 2006. White tablecloth, red table runner, snowflakes cut from vellum paper and individual boxed gifts wrapped in white paper and tied with red ribbon. Pillar candles in the center on a chrome tray. Simple, but it was so pretty. My china is Royal Doulton's Lavendar Rose, so the reds and pinks go well.
