B&W at D´Box TAble

Table Top Tuesday and Tablescaping...
A great time to start my week!

My participation this week is inside home, as our weather gets more colder and more rough. Soon, I will be visiting my promise land and the neighbouring countries (hope we have a longer holidays). 

Yes, this might be the last post at D´Box (be back, last week of Oct) as I am leaving to visit my old dear Mum and my family in The Philippines. This trip is a present for MOTH on his 50th bday recently. We both need an R&R or a 4x honeymoon §:-) now that we don't drag kids with us. First time to travel without them. Crazy feelings, huh?

Anyways, I am preparing the table for 4 eventhough, I know that kiddos are out and are living by their own. I am just thinking and feeling if I set for 2? What if both kiddos will pop up for lunch? Or sometime, as a mother, it is normal to serve 4 to gather the family in a blessed table, right?

Our Table @ D´Box
Recycling my plates... I found they're fit with my theme 2d

Wine glasses are very inexpensive from Åhlens while drinking glasses from IKEA

Whimsical pearl candle holders are from Chili

New salad set...loving this

I found this flatwares in our Dollar Store... fit with the motives

Just showing some of the gadgets around. Not flashy but I love the simplicity
Very pretty, I guess?
Wine glasses are from local store Åhlens. Largest vase was a more 20 yrs old...
BTW... you don't often see my centerpiece a faux flowers, right? §:-)
Tea box was a bday present from a lovely cousin... they know my weaknesses...
I elevated the teapot, so we can see her beauty
For more whimsical feelings, I added my silver finial... simple

 Our Salmon Luxuriate (my own creation of recipe). Under the smoke salmon
I mix cream cheese, garlic, chives & basil to brighten the taste §:-)
 Rhurbarb with cream (lactose free) as I am allergic to it.

Table is still untouched after lunch. Probably, waiting for dinner? 

Sometimes, I wished I have time to just do some of my hobbies like tablescapings, cooking and do all my unforgotten hobbies i.e. sewing, crocheting and all those crafty thingy. Just be a "home-y as ever". Hopefully, I get a year leave from work and study "Interior Design/party broker" or something. Isn't it a cool thing? Ahhh... dream about it, baby? murmured someone at my back §;-)

Hope you have had a great week-end, gorgeous ladies of Blogilandia... and continue a blissful week, YÁll.
