Linens and Lace-Dessert for Two

     I love mixing old and new. We had a very simple Valentine's Day dessert of Key Lime Pie and I think everything tastes better on a pretty plate. I set the coffee table with an embroidered short runner that I found in my mother-in-law's things and added 2 different lacy napkins from my mother's things. The cup and plate set is from Living Quarters, the funky flatware was a HomeGoods buy a couple of years ago.

I added blue stemware and a few mercury
glass votive candles to complete the look.

The beautiful tulips were part of my Valentine's Day
gift from my husband. Tulips are my favorite!

You can see the glow of the fireplace in the background.

The Key Lime pie was made from a Carnation brand kit.
It was surprisingly good!

I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
 for Tablescape Thursday.

Please visit our hostess!

     I am going to start blocking Anonymous comments from my blog. I seem to be getting them several times a day and they aren't real comments-they are advertisements. Is anyone else having this issue?

Hi Sue Sweetie...
This table setting is fit for a Queen and King. (That is who dined right?)

Love those tulips, they are gorgeous and everything looks so lovely. You have my mouth watering for some of that key lime pie. Oh my goodness.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. I love your new header. It is gorgeous. I believe your Momma is peering through at you. Looks as though she separated the curtains to peer in. I love it.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Beautiful, Sue! Love the glow of the candles and your blue and white plates are really pretty. I always manage to find a place to store what I buy, always a challenge though, lol. Some of them went to my store. I would have taken more to the store but everytime I show it John and ask him how much I should sell, he tells me to keep it, lol. He is worse than me sometimes....Christine

Hey Sue...I bought that same key lime kit yesterday! Can't wait to try it, now that I KNOW it will be GOOD!

How nice that you have all your mother's & mother-in-love's things to enjoy & treasure. I'm sure they are both smiling down on this pretty dessert table for two.


p.s. Your thumbnail isn't showing up over at Susan's, BNOTP. ????
