Dessert for Two

It's been colder than usual here in the Houston area...and a fire seems perfect for a cozy evening.

This table belonged to my paternal grandfather. It is very heavy - legs of iron and a round marble top. It was one of several in his coffee shop, now it resides in my home.

The table is small, I guess it was perfect for coffee or tea with a friend.
I decided to keep it simple as well...dessert for two.

Dishes - Lenox Opal Innocence Carved.
Monogrammed napkins from Greece {via eBay}
Flatware - Oneida Michelangelo
Silver plate sugar bowl, Waterford dish - Goodwill, Salvation Army
Champagne flutes, clock - gift
Candleholders - Tuesday Morning

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to stop by to visit to see amazing tables and loads of creativity!

Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy your day!

  5. Sharlotte... a fire in your fireplace! I've never seen a fire in YOUR fireplace! And you are right. It has been unusually cold here in southeast Texas. We haven't had to buy firewood in 10 years at our house... but now we're out and I've been too cold. Brrr...

  6. What a cozy table! And those napkins are incredible!!
