twenty one years ago...

It is VCH and my wedding anniversary today.

We have been married 21 years.
Almost half my life I have been married to the most wonderful man!
Thank you VCH for giving me the best years of my life!
So to celebrate I thought I would do a little romantic tablescape for two 
(we are actually heading out to dinner this evening at a local restaurant).
Yes we are on the veranda again, can you tell it's my favourite place to be?

It is a lovely green and white spring theme.
Truth be told - it is always green in Australia even right through winter though the grasses can brown off a little from frost.

The wine glasses are from our wedding.

Pretty green ramekins, my white Lindau dinner set and the silverware we got for a wedding present, from my MIL.

Some candles to light as evening approaches.

Looking out towards the front yard and over the road towards the creek, hidden by the trees.

The flowers are a variety of wattle found in the paddocks around our property, the vase is a green soda glass.

Happy Anniversary, my beloved!

  1. Congratulations Deanne. I hope you have a lovely evening out.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Tables for Two are wonderful; I did one this week myself on my blog! That's why I also have a Table for Two section in my Etsy store. Some stages of life call for TWO, don't they? ...Have a wonderful evening.

  3. It looks lovely! The colors are so crisp!
    Happy Anniversary, and many more healthy years together!
