Roses are red
Violets are Blue..
I love playing with dishes...
How about you?
I'm such a poet! HA
I thought I would set my table with the good dishes
for eating at home next Sunday...
Sunday's were one of those days that we just planned on eating out.
It was just our usual routine,
Church, Eat Out, Nap, Back to Church...
But we have been taking turns with our travel buddies
and alternating at each others houses so we are not
having to cook every Sunday.
We also get to sit around and plan out the little details of our
trip and just enjoy relaxing and taking it easy...
and then take a nap...
Today, I thought I would plan out my table
so I would not be scrambling at the last minute
trying to make it just so...
Won't you come and see...
The napkin rose was inspired from
Yvonne gave step by step instructions on how
to do this napkin fold...
and when I read
No Ironing Required,
I was on board...
you can tell I am not much on ironing from the next shot...
I promise I'll iron the table cloth before our guests come for a visit.
Since Roses are so expensive around Valentine's Day,
I figured that making my own would be better.
I chose to put one in each of the coffee cups...
The leaves were just popped off some artificial hydrangea blooms
that were in the kitchen. I can just pop them back on
when I am done using them as leaves for my roses.
A little shot of the rim on my dishes...
stacked on a rosy red charger.

A little candlelight...
I placed the silver Mint Julep cups on the table
to use as a vase on Sunday for a few
real red roses...
I also plan to use some flowers and greenery to decorate the
candle plates in the center of the table.
They need a little something to spruce them up a bit.
I love that these can be used as a centerpiece with the plates,
or you can remove the plate and use a taper candle.
I have also used these on a dessert table before as
a serving piece.
Speaking of dessert...
The buffet has been set for a few sweets to eat.
I am planning on fresh fruit on the tall petit four stand and
something yummy on the cake pedestal.
And coffee to sip while we enjoy.
Another quick shot of the table with a soft glow...
I think we'll be set for a yummy Sunday dinner...
And one more shot of the napkin roses...
I have to say I think this little fold makes a big impact for
such a simple little twist...
Our table is set, now to plan what is for lunch.
Thanks for stopping by to visit today.
