Sweet 5 Year Anniversary Tablescape

This weekend Floyd and I celebrated our five year anniversary. I can hardly believe it’s been five whole years since we said our vows on a beautiful Jamaican cliff (you can see all our wedding details here). It’s incredible how time truly does fly when you are having a blast! What a whirlwind the past five years have been. We’ve had so much fun, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next five! And since I wanted to show my honey just how much I appreciate our time together, I decided to surprise him with a nice little date night in…which leads me to this anniversary tablescape idea!

To set off our date night, I created a little special space for us to celebrate and, wait for it, it wasn’t in the kitchen where we eat most of our meals. Somehow setting up a romantic table setting for us away from our typical kitchen table made it so much more special. And anytime you’re talking romance, the unexpected is always a plus!

I found these carnations at Fresh Market for only $5! Is it just me or does their deep rich color help set a romantic tone? See? Carrie Bradshaw had it right. Carnations CAN be fabulous!

I’m also loving these Pheasant placemats, courtesy of Citta Design.  The fun pattern and colors are so versatile and can work in both dressier and casual table settings.

A special treat adorns each place setting. Yum!
