It was time for dinner and I was home alone. Yet, it was time for Tablescape Thursday. So, I figured, why not set the table for one.
I have lots of different china pieces that do not belong to a whole group. A few dinner plates from one set, a few salad plates from another and so on. I love them all and so I picked a few different patterns to use for dinner tonight.
They all have pink flowers and I thought they looked just fine together. I also got out one of my white lace chargers.
I have gotten so much use out of those. I think they are one of my best buys.
For dinner, I used all the plates here. The large one for pasta, the main course. The middle one for my salad. The smaller one on top for my dessert of fresh fruit. I even used the bread plate for my roll.
Normally, if I'm alone I don't use all these different plates. In fact, to be honest I never use a bread plate unless I have company. Tonight was a real treat for me and I have to say, I did feel a bit special.
OK, the tea cup was really more to ballance the color. I don't normally drink tea. But, I did keep this out for my sister to use. She has a hot cup of tea every night.
Not to long ago, I polished all my silver. This little tea strainer was one that polished up nicely. So of course, I had to put it out too.
I even got out the good silver. Sometimes I like to spoil myself and besides, why shouldn't I get to eat on silver? Who says it's for company only?
There you have it. My Tablescape for one. Not a normal setting for me yet, I still enjoyed it and I hope you did too.
I'm linking up to Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. I always have fun going there and seeing what everyone comes up with. Don't you?
