Tablescape Thursday - And Babies make 4

Another fun Tablescape Thursday has arrived and I thank
Susan at the beautiful blog Between Naps on the Porch for hosting us.
You can use this handy link to return for the rest of the tablescape

My daughter decided she needed a romantic dinner for two. She and her hubby are
the parents of a 26 month old and a 3 month old. Not getting much alone time she decided to make a late dinner after babies were in bed and prepare a delicious dinner for 2. She had just bought this lovely rustic bistro table, so I decided that should be the stage for her romantic dinner. I arrived bearing sunflowers, candles and a few essentials. She supplied the rest.

We used her blue dishes and her Chris Madden salad plate, and bowl and tucked
the napkins under the plates.

The blue glasses are Mikasa and the White bubble glasses are from HomeGoods.

The candles were lit, the scene complete. Dinner was simmering on the stove,
the salad was chilling in the fridge. Babies were bathed and asleep. Hubby
had just arrived home.

Salad was served and wine was poured.............

and then it happened. Both babies woke up and dinner was postponed and postponed and postponed.

I called the next morning to see how the evening went and she just laughed. She and hubby
ate in shifts each one tending a baby. I suddenly remembered many dinners
when my kids were little that didn't go quite as planned. Next time I need to be
a better grandma and let them go "out" to dinner.

Thanks for stopping by, see you next time.
