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!
A special treat adorns each place setting. Yum!

So, have you ever taken an unexpected turn and set up a dining space in a totally different room from usual? What do you think of this anniversary tablscape?Any thoughts on how I can take it to the next level? Inquiring minds want to know!
