Tablescape Tuesday - Dinner for 2

It is my favorite time of the week. Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan. This week I set a Table for Two. This is real life - dinner for hubby and me! I should have a brillant title - however, I don't!
I found the luncheon/salad plate, cup and saucer at Homegoods after Christmas. You know I loved that black and white! I thought it looked so pretty with the golden color goblets and placemats/chargers.
I placed the salad plate on top of my good ole plain white gold rimmed dishes.

I always love when the cup has a flower inside!


This gold fishbowl type holder I purchased for $2.00 at my grocery store after Christmas. The square votives I think I bought at Walmart last year.

I just love these goblets. I know I picked them up at some store like Big Lot or 99 cent store a couple of years ago.

I thought I would use some of my salts. These were purchased probably 15 years ago at a garage sale!
The little creamers my husband bought me in South Carolina at a dish depot.

These placemat/chargers with the dingle, dangles...oooh, I love these. After Christmas at Target for about $4.00 each. They are all beaded and I know you know they run a lot more than that regularly.



The little silver spoons were from the Outdoor shopping in Charleston. I purchased 4 different ones.


So you can see the size. Just a note, if you are wanting to purchase salt spoons, beware of the size description. Salt spoons are no more than 2 1/2 inches...Many people try to sell mustard spoons, or even collector spoons as salt spoons, .....they aren't.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my tablescape. I am off to see all of yours! Next week Valentine's tablescape.

I love seeing tables set for two, since I don't have children, and unless I'm having guests over, there is almost always just the two of us here. I love your table setting, and agree that the black and white with gold is a particularly lovely color combination. You put everything together beautifully. :-)

dana said...

I CeeKay!!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my last post (Pink Sat!). I am so far behind visiting my fav. bloggers--I had a brunch here yesterday and I was cleaning like a mad woman over the weekend.
I LOVE your black and white dishes--they do look wonderful with your goldern glasses and placemats! I so wish we had a Home Goods store in our area--it's killing me when I see you gals that do and all of the treasures you find there!
Those little salt dishes are so sweet with those tiny salt spoons. Years ago, my dad would make pins out of salt spoons---of course, I lost mine. It makes me sick.
I hope you're feeling OK!! I loved this post.

Ceekay,

You could really start a business doing tablescapes. They always look so beautiful.

Hope you doing better with the dog thing. I almost had to give up my border collie last week. She attacked my little dog. :-(
