Dinner Before Show

First of all I want to thank Carolyn at Desire Empire for her generous  giveaway.  I won her Seaside Style Interior book Giveaway .... 
Make sure to visit her blog and say hello.

Another win is from Georgie at  Puddinnpie
Stop by and say hello to Georgie.
I am so excited that I won  2 giveaways.

Have you ever done a dinner or tablescape in your Living room.  It changes things up abit and it is fun. I created this setting before we were to attend a show.
I am using the black and gold spotted salad plates, along with solid black dinner plates.   I decided to use our leopard placemats along with the Tortoise wine goblets from Horchow The water glasses are amber and I purchased them from the Dollar Tree.
The flatware is also from Horchow and it is called Bamboo.
The flowers are  in a tall vase I purchased from Pottery World.  I also use this for large candles. The tall candle holder I bought at Ross.

This is our Living room.  We don't use it everyday.  This room is very comfortable and the sectional is so plush.  I like to curl up  in the chaise part of the sectional to read a nice book.

   How do you like these funky black chairs.
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely week!
I am  linking up with the following blogs....

  6. What a fun idea! I love those funky, black chairs. They're awesome!


  7. Congrats on your wins! :D

    We like to watch TV and eat dinner in the family room on Monday nights while we watch The Bachelor....

    I think your slide show at the top of your blog is so neat! I have been watching it.


  8. Congratulations on your wins!!! That's terrific! I'm looking at your living room and noticing how it's sunken. So cool!!! I would love to have a living room that is a couple of steps down from the main level. It just looks so sexy! :-) Great before-show set up! We eat in the living room often, but usually when we're entertaining more than 6 since our dining room is so small. I love it! It gives us access to the fireplace, and I love it that we are surrounded by lots of books! Your living room is very elegant. Congratulations again on your wins!

  9. I Love the way you celebrate your life and home with generous and sweet details.
    Happy New Year, Linda.
    I'd lost my way to here and found I've been loosing all your great vibes.
    Congrats to Dear Hubby for the remodeling. My motto goes in the line - when wanting something - to never give up until someone says "of course, you CAN" ahahahaha

    Take Care, Sweet Lady! And Congratulations on the winnings - couldn't have happened to a better person.
