Sometimes love comes to us in the simplest ways. We had a little "party" to give someone some old fashioned "love" one of those "last minute" close friends only party.
It was a simple "I love you" party, and I wanted to share with you my two table settings. I did it twice, and decided to go with the second one. Here are some very quick pictures. I wanted to use a few fresh flowers, my old jars, my handmade tags, and a lot of white, thus, the plates, tablecloth, but I went with the basket, lavender, and vintage linens.
|My first table setting, very traditional with little old jars with daisies, antique plates with tan flowers, and antique little napkins with hand embroidered edges.|
|I wanted something different, this is the way my mom used to set the buffet table.|
|I made this candle with vellum paper and a blue clay tag that says "love", and I decorated with my clay "amour" mini tags, like "confetti", I gave each of my friends one to take home as a favor.|
|My antique plates, but I changed my mind, I liked the white ones, you can see the border of my napkins, they are very old, but beautiful.|

|The tablecloth is from my collection, I seldom use it because it is very delicate with all the handwork, I bought it on Ebay about five years ago. I had it stashed in my cedar wedding chest.|
