A table for 2

We couldn't have chosen a better evening!

I love the hues of blue, white and aqua....

The butter dish, knife and salt and pepper cellars are Carol Boyes...

The rose vase  is a gift for my birthday from my sister-in-law....

     Stacking......... It's a girl thing ....

 The linen napkins are Irish linen and my mom's ♥ special blue ones are placed over....

I love the aqua stemware that echos the colour of the pool....

Waiting patiently ......

                Just had to add this one of my garden....

My memory garden    in the background...  

By now Mr T was getting rather impatient....

And on the menu....prawns and fried rice...

   At dusk....


    Just love these roses....

   .....and my newest vase.....

        Enjoy! ......

I'm linking to Seasonal Sundays,
         Spring! and 
                         Tablescape Thursdays 

                    See you all there...

  13. Hi Shel,
    I posted right after you on Tablescape Thursday and am enjoying my first visit to your blog. Your Table for 2 is lovely...I only wish that it was warm enough here to set a table outside...we're still waiting for Spring. I see that you are from South Africa...we have a dear friend there and hear from her about how beautiful it is...your photos have confirmed it!
