Anniversary Table

In January, one of my favorite bloggers celebrated her 200th post (Here). Sujatha's blog is always beautiful and unique. I love when she post holidays and celebrations....and the flowers!!!! The tablescapes and the food are always great, too.

After viewing that anniversary posting, Pat and I were immediately inspired to celebrate our anniversary, too. We started five years ago this month. I still think fondly of the many, many bloggers who helped us out in the beginning......Alma at The Tablescaper, Cuisine Kathleen, Alycia Nichols at Tablescapes at Twenty-One to name a few.

We started with an orange-themed table in 2012.  Back then, we had absolutely no idea what we were doing and had a lot fewer dishes to work with. We just thought it would be fun. Well, it still is fun and yes, we have way too many dishes now (I can hear the family groan in agreement.....) So, Pat thanks for the many, many tables that you have set. And here's to a lot more.
Pat wanted to set our Anniversary table in orange. What a color combination - Fiesta(ware) Tangerine and Flamingo

Flatware is "Pure" by Gourmet Settings

Pat used both orange and pink candle holders
