Tablescape Thursday – Our 13th Wedding Anniversary

brian and me

We look so young here- 13 years ago…now we are wiser, not as thin, have a few more wrinkles, and love each other in an a whole new way.

Tablescape Thursday this week for me coincided with celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was especially nice because Brian is away much of the time with work.

With the idea that simple is best, I set the table anticipating my husband’s arrival after 25 days away!

My favourite linens are from the flea market in Paris…they are monogrammed and have a great rubbery drape to them. At Capitol Iron in Victoria, I found these beautiful little Eiffel tower S&P shakers. The roses, herbs and evergreens are from my garden. 

A few nights later, we took in “Thoroughly Modern Millie” at the Theatre Under the Stars in Stanley Park.

All this, and perfect 70 degree evenings…lucky for me, because Vancouver is in the middle of heat wave right now, with temperatures that seem unbearable.

Right before I light the candles…’s time for you all to go…

So, go on over to see Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to look at some other great tablescapes!! Susan’s is especially stunning this week!

Oh got me dreamin'. I keep telling hubby that if we blew open the mastersuite windows and made them french doors that we could have a little spot just like you got there on the side of our house. He just rolls his eyes for now because he has a bazillion honey do's. blessings...great job!

Happy Anniversary! This is a very pretty tablescape to celebrate. I love your wedding dress - it looks so classic - is it perhaps vintage? You and your husband are quite a handsome couple. And I adore those little dogs! I have to rescues myself. It's so nice to meet you -- thanks for your visit and kind words.

What a beautiful couple then and now! Worth celebrating every time you are together with those beautiful linens and setting.
Acqua Panna has a great taste and is very light... but now I wonder "What is for dinner honey?"
Happy Anniversary every day (well, when possible...)!

13 years is just the first tier of a true life of love. Also the linens are lovely and the elegant outdoor setting were a true magnet for a happy meal.
