Welcome to the 27th Tablescape Thursday!
When I came across this room in a magazine, the thing that really caught my eye stopping me dead in my tracks, was the gorgeous tablecloth. It was just so over-the-top and impractical, which of course, was exactly why I loved it! I started pricing lace tablecloths online and quickly realized I would not be buying one any time soon–some were over $1,000!
A few weeks ago, when I visited my sister, Glenda, she offered me a pretty spread she had bought for her bed but had decided to not use.
Won’t you join me for an intimate dinner for two in the library. Okay, it’s the living room but for this evening, it’s the library. This side is “library like”…so dream along with me. I’ve always thought the perfect dining room would be lined with shelves of old, musty, leather bound books and of course a crackling, hot fire.
So here’s our fire…and how do you like our “lace” tablecloth. Notice how it sprawls across the floor like the inspiration photo.
This room has a bit of a doggie theme.
So, I’ve carried this theme right onto our table…
Spode, Woodland seemed the perfect china for our evening in our cozy, hunt themed library…
The salad plate…
And the dinner plate…
We’ll sip our wine from crimson glasses, in front of a glowing, hot fire…
Of course, there must be candlelight.
In the library we’re surrounded by incredible tales and beautifully written stories…
A perfect evening for a cozy dinner.
