Romantic Back Porch Dining

I hope you are having a nice week. I missed you all. It seems like I have not posted for such a long time cause even though I have a post for Saturday, I actually entered it last Wednesday. I got stuck in Houston from California because I missed my flight so I had to stay in a hotel there overnight but I finally made it home last night.
I set up a tablescape for two in the back porch and the plates are white, so I am linking with Susan for Outdoor Wednesday at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

Kathleen for White Wednesady at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/

And another Susan for Tablescape Thursday at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/



I wanted to set a tablescape earlier today inside the gazebo but it rained so hard. I set one up later in the covered back porch instead.
Since it is more of a garden setting, I used my green and white topiary salad plates with ruffly plain white dinner plates.

I lit some candles on the small candelier, the black wrought iron lantern and a lady bug tea light holder to set the ambiance.



I like to see the mosaic on the table so I just used a see through lace for the table runner.

The sign says "Love Grows Here, (You reap what you sow)"


I don't know what I did differently but my white orchids actually bloomed this year. Aren't they lovely? I have had such a hard time in the past, getting them to bloom again after they lose their flowers.


I love these salad plates. I bought them from Clearwater, Florida a while back.






The table is near the fountain and the sound of the flowing water is very relaxing.








Aren't those cordial liqueur stem crystals so cute?














I hope you enjoyed my mini tablescape. I enjoyed having you around. Thanks for coming and a special thanks to our gracious hostesses, Kathleen and the 2 Susans.
