This was a last minute decision since we had reservations at our favorite restaurant but it had been raining on and off all day. We live way to the west of where Hurricane Isaac landed but it was such a huge storm with outer bands of rain for miles and miles. We have had so much rain lately that I was fearful that we would lose power because of a toppled tree which is not unusual.
I most always have an orchid blooming so that served as our centerpiece. It also gave me the opportunity to use my new blue bowls, faux depression glass.
Since I am an avid bird watcher and also a collector of birds I always enjoy adding some birds to my table arrangement. I have lots and lots of silver birds and these napkin rings are iron. I love these little napkin rings.
No anniversary celebration would be complete without a bottle of champagne and it even has a rose on the label.
It was a good decision to not go out in the bad weather but enjoy a nice quiet dinner at home even if it was a last minute decision. I managed to prepare for dinner some of my husband's favorite, it's a good thing he has simple tastes.
Today I am sharing my post at BNOP for Tablescape Thursday. There are some beautiful ideas for table settings shared .
