Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Welcome to Sharion's Restaurant. We are a friendly, corner neighborhood place. We have an ever-changing menu and specialize in romantic dinners for two with seasonal place settings! You will always get a table in front of the fireplace here! hee hee
I set a very romantic New Year's themed table for two for my husband and I. We went out to dinner with our family on New Year's eve, so we did this dinner a few weeks later.
The main theme of the table is "Special Starry Night in Paris" and the main colors are gold, silver and black.
I wanted it to feel jubilant and joyful for New Year's and stars seemed perfect. I found these cute star napkins and napkin rings at a thrift store.
I layered our plates starting with gold chargers, then a black plate and then these cute white plates with little gold stars all over them.
I just love thrift stores. I set the table in the morning and then went to town to run errands and grocery shop. I stopped in at a thrift store and could not believe it when I found a set of gold flatware! They actually only had a hodgepodge of pieces, but when I picked through them, I found a perfect set for two! I also got two serving pieces as well! The best part? They were only .25 cents each, so I only paid $4.00 for all of it.
It's not my favorite pattern, but it worked for this night and now I will just be on the look out for a another set that I like. :0) The gold flatware looks so great with this tablescape!
I also used these fun Eiffel Tower statues that I have. What could be more romantic that an intimate New Year's dinner for two in Paris?
Here's an enchanting Eiffel Tower votive lamp.
What's a new year's dinner without champagne?
These salt and pepper shakers are soooo cool! They remind me of tall Art Deco inspired sky-scrappers. You push the top, which is actually a button and the salt or pepper comes out the bottom. They are so cool. I found them at Goodwill for $1.99!
Time for dinner!
I made broiled pork-chops served on a pretty star platter with a beautiful gold serving fork!
It all looks so appetizing!
The lighting is so romantic!
What a delicious meal!
Hubby loved it too!
We both agree...Sharino's is a great place to eat!
