Fireside Dining for Two

I set up another romantic table in front of the fireplace.  There something so romantic and soothing about sitting in front of the fire.

The family is not coming to dinner this year, so my husband and I are going out to dinner for Thanksgiving.
I will miss the the company, mess, and the yummy leftovers.

The gold rimmed champagne flutes are from Horchow.

Gold flatware is from Horchow.  The gold rimmed dinner plates are from Macy's.
I bought the acorn plates at Ross.  The gold candle holder is from Home Goods.

Have a joyful and Blessful Thanksgiving my friends.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Linda, From my nest to yours, may your joy be full. I used to think going out for Thanksgiving dinner didn't sound good but now I think it sounds better-no mess, no work etc.
    Hugs, Noreen

  2. Lovely table! Too bad you aren't going to be using it. But, dining out is easier.

  3. Good afternoon Linda, What a beautiful setting for two to enjoy a beautiful dinner. Have a wonderful day with your husband and enjoy your meal together. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Best Wishes Daphne

  4. Warm Thanksgiving Wishes from Canada......Blessings Francine

    Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving, Linda.

  6. Have a wonderful, romantic Thanksgiving...
    Ciao for now...

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Sweet Linda!

    Don't forget to "Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way."

    Blessed Be your Home and Family!

  8. This is a gorgeous place setting! Your table looks stunning and so romantic! I hope your Thanksgiving has been filled with many wonderful blessings.

  9. Hi Linda, this table is lovely and cozy! I so wish I had a fireplace in my house. It's on my wishlist for the next house someday! : )
    I hope you and your hubby had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner! xo


  10. Happy Thanksgiving! I know you had a wonderful day...what a lovely table. My hubby and I enjoyed cooking a big meal together and having a nice dinner. It was quiet but nice. Sweet hugs!

  11. Lovely tablescape, Linda. I have no leftovers, either, but came home to a nice clean kitchen! xo

  12. Very pretty tablescape for twoo, it yells happy and romantic Thanksgiving. We were alone too, as my children are away and even my mom, as there's no Tksging here, but I do celebrate.
    Big hugs,

  13. Your table is beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving :)

  14. I am sorry you couldn't be with your kids this year. We went to our daughter and SIL's and there was a mess, a crowd but fun. One LOUD 2 year old:) Now, I adore your acorn plates they look very expensive! Paired with the gold rimmed plates and stemware it is all so beautiful. You are right, my header is AWFUL!!! I treid to fix it and ended up with this mess. Any suggestions? I don't know how to change the size of pictures and make them fit into a 4 panel screen. Hope you ha a nice romantic evening!!! XO, Pinky

  15. So strange...the comment I left earlier today has just evaporated!!!! :-( It should have been right after Marigene's, I think. I like your table for 2. Fireside is one of the best places for such tables! The romantic vibe is just so strong, and the linen color you used fits in perfectly!!! I have those same plates, and I love them! Wish I would have bought more! Gorgeous candle holder, too. I love all the bling on it. I hope your meal out was just as romantic as the table you set at home!

  16. What a perfectly romantic setting for just the two of you. I love the acorn plates from Ross. Thanksgiving blessings sent your way, Linda!

  17. What a lovely tablescape! I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!

  18. It is not easy to share, with others, the loveliness as the one your family brings.

    But it speaks well of you and your generous heart that they feel free to be elsewhere.

    I must say I love your cosy dinner... and I'm not refering to the gorgeous set up, wonderful pieces and amazing atmosphere pulled... it all looks so elegant that I'm sure your Lucky Husband isn't feeling deprived of family gatherings.

    Because what matters - the love, the thankfulness, the warmth - remains and lasts.

    Be Blessed,

  19. Your tablescape is just simply gorgeous, as always, Linda! Love Your centerpiece, china, stemware, napkins, And what a lovely theme and color scheme, too. And since I've been on a blog break, I've been peeking at all the tablescapes settings and they are all so beautiful, too! You are so talented and are such an inspiration! I hope you and your hubby had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    Cheers! xxoo Diane
