~ Tablescape Thursday for Two~



Welcome to my 2nd Tablescape Thursday~

I had so much fun last week, I thought I would try it again.



This week I thought we would have dinner on the patio~

The weather was so nice...

I used our wedding china...I don't know much about it but it was a wedding gift 9 years and 10 months ago. :)


Our silver creamer has knockout roses, yellow bells and blue plumbago from our garden.

My great grandmothers scarf adds a touch of color to the table.



This time of day was perfect for dinner on the patio....the breeze was nice and the view...is what we have created together....a truly special place.

The silver flatware is at least 50 years old as it was a gift to my grandparents in the mid 50's.


Thank you so much for coming by~

Thank you Susan for hosting...ya'll make sure and visit betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for more beautiful tablescapes!

Somehow, meals eaten outside at a pretty table are so much more special. Beautifully done.

What a lovely and elegant setting. This is so pretty and I'm sure you love the memories attached to all these pieces that come from family and your wedding -- how special to have them all gathered on your table today.

Beautiful Jessica! I love that you incorporated things from your heritage also. The china and silverware are so beautiful. I do love nice dishes but I can't seem to pull together this nice of a table setting! I have a 12 piece china setting that we use frequently. I hope your Mister tells you what a lucky man he is....bz he is!

Hi Dear Jessica! Oh, how pretty your setting is. I love your wedding china - it's so elegant and on the patio is marvelous! I love your silver with the knockout roses in it. I have four bushes and they have just gone to pot! I don't know if it's the heat. They get water but don't bloom! :(
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a lovely spot. The color of the roses in your centerpiece is just short of magnificent. Your table shows a lot of thought and it is beautiful. I hope you enjoyed your meal and are having a wonderful day.
