This was so much fun for me!!! I was giddy like a school girl! It brought out romance, inspiration and creativity.
At first when Eric said he would join me in the living room for dinner I think he was just being sweet, but when he walked in and saw the pretty table, the lit candles, and the delicious meal he was very appreciative of my efforts. We both had so much fun! It was like we were on a date! We just looked into each other eyes and talked during the whole meal. I LOVED it!!!!
It was really a great night and now I am looking so forward to doing this again for him. I am thinking of all of the possibilities with tablescape and menu ideas. The good news is, dishes are cheap at Goodwill and pretty easy to find them matching, especially if you are only buying them in sets of two! And because there's only two of them, they are not hard to store. I am thinking how fun it would be to make an Italian dinner with a red and white checkered tablecloth, or a Chinese meal with Chinese dishes! The possibilities are endless!
