In Front of the Fireplace….

 

 

I wanted to take advantage of the fact that for about 2 weeks out of the year we have a fireplace. At Jack’s house we enjoy several fires before we go back to Florida. It only seemed fitting that we should enjoy a dinner there even if it meant sitting on the floor. I started with the leather ottoman, a board and a quilt. Jack made the fire and I got the dishes.

And look at that blue outside. The yard is bright because of outside lighting.

Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday where you can see grownups playing with dishes. It is a fun party!

Very warm and cosy, I love open fires. We have a gas effect one in our lounge which always looks welcoming when on. Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Hi Carol, Your fireside meal looks so cozy and welcoming, and I like the use of the quilt as a table covering! You captured the blue hour with your camera! Linda

Oh I love it! This is so similar to the cozy and simple tablescape I'm considering entering in Tablescape Thursdays - I'm thinking of using my parents cabin on a Lake in NH as my 'spot'. Too bad you have to go back to Florida! But I guess it's probably nice there too :) I've followed you and look forward to your future posts!

I love this! I like the platters as plates. I like to stack mine with jumbo mugs for soup and sandwich or salad.

Just really loved the photo (before the blue light picture) in front of the fireplace. There probably is not much need for a fireplace in FLorida -- I remember one summer that our family traveled to Maine for my grandparents 60th anniversary. It was in July and we stayed in their cabin on the Lake. It was so cold that we needed a fire in the fireplace at night. That is Maine for you! Til the next time. Rebecca

This is so romantic! I wish we had a fireplace but I am also in a place where I would probably only use it once or twice a year! Enjoy these special fireside moments!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

The feedsack quilt absolutely sets a wonderful mood for your Dinner a Deux in front of the fireplace. So comforting and definitely romantic. The platters make perfect chargers. Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay
