It's a Friday night. I've just completed a 55+ hour work week. I'm tired, but Friday night is always rejuvenating for me. My husband has traveled 5 hours away to be the speaker tonight to our hometown highschool football team. That means I'm by myself. I don't like doing this often, but every now and then it's nice to be totally in control of the remote! Olive Garden is on my way home, so when my husband is out of town I ususally order a salad and soup to go. I'm treating myself tonight to a nice tablescape for my dinner alone.
I've used a pink Fiesta dinnerplate on a wicker tray, white salad plate by Gibson from Big Lots, and a pink Madrid (remake) depression bowl.
The arrangement is in a depression era Crinoline cup made several years ago by my sweet friend, Julie....I love it!
The flatware is my favorite, Oneida Michaelangelo. It was one of my first purchases when I started my career.
The goblet is a treasure from my grandmother's collection. It is about 70 years old. I have 4 stems like it....not replaceable!
I'm going to enjoy my dinner, watch a chick-flick and sleep late tomorrow! Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more tablescaping ideas.
