Romantic Table Al Fresco



It's Thursday, so you know what that means...my favorite thing... Tablescape Thursday again at Between Naps on the Porch by the wonderful Susan, a fellow dish collector.



Here is a picture of my vintage china and candle holders...the china is from the 50s and I think the candle sticks are from Lenox. The table cloth has a tulip pattern and the style always makes me think of romantic cottages.
The server is a Victorian replica, but I love it so much for romantic settings.




I've been looking for all long time for teal glasses to match this pattern, but they always seem too dark.



The pink roses are
in a footed brilliant cut glass bowl from the early part of the last century.



Ahh nightfall, I can light the candles and relax!



Please take a look at the other people entering their "tablescapes"




Thank you for sharing my romantic moment.
