My most beautiful tablescape evah!

Welcome!  I am joining our lovely hostess Susan from Between Naps on The Porch for Table scape Thursday.  It has been a little over a year since I found her site and have seen tablescapes that have blown me away.  Incredible, talented, gifted  men and women have wowed me with images and information that keep me entertained for hours every week.  This, my friends would be my most beautiful table scape evah! 
Many of you know that my husband went to work in Saudi Arabia in Feb,2010. For 8 long months
my tables have pretty much looked like this.  A table set for one.  These are our everyday dishes, a spoon cause I am having soup.  Walmart flowers, but tonight.......drum roll please.......

My table is set for 2!  My husband will be home any minute.  Can you tell I am excited?
That is his favorite glass.  He stole, I mean borrowed it from my sister 14 years ago.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful table.  He is having chicken wings, that is why he has no

So there you have it, my most beautiful table.  I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for the phone
to ring.   Give your significant others and your kids a special hug and kiss tonight.  While this table
may seem plain in comparison to so many I have seen, trust me it is the best.
When I set this table I sat down and cried. How lucky I am to have a husband that would travel 10,000 miles across the world to support his family.  It has been difficult, and he has to go back in 3 weeks
but boy and I going to hold on to him so tight.

I will say that he wanted ham, ham, ham.  But since it is so late I did not want to prepare much.  He will get his fill of ham and beer,  LOL.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Go check out all the incredible tables.  You will be amazed.

I treasure each and every comment.

  7. That could be plain white paper plates and plastic forks and it would still be beautiful because of what it represents! Enjoy your time with your hubby!

  8. This is the best. It's not what's on the table that counts, it's who's sitting in the seat. I love this and glad he is finally home.
