Dinner at Linderhof when it is just the two of us is taken in the breakfast room. It overlooks the garden and thankfully, by dinner time the sun is not as intense as it was in the afternoon.
Even when it is just the two of us, I like to set a nice table.
|I've always felt family deserves as pretty a table as company.|
A cloth on the table. This one from an Estate Sale and the flowers in the cloth reminds me of sunflowers -- sunflowers with "blue" centers! Blue and white transferware, of course.
|Flowers or fruit as a centerpiece is a must!|
Spode Blue Italian. The pitcher is as well -- filled with store flowers! Alas, there are no flowers in Linderhof's gardens!
|Inexpensive but pretty and they last a week or more!|
I love the peachy orange color of these and even though they didn't come from the garden, they still bring a smile to my face.
|A symphony of blues and golds with a pop or orange!|
White linen napkins in silver napkin rings -- the ones we use daily!
I adore mirrors and the reflections they provide --
And dinner? From the Farmer's Market -- even the pork! Husband Jim grilled the pork chops while I cooked the beans with quartered new potatoes and onions and cucumbers in vinegar. A summer dinner with ties to our childhoods.
It is Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
