Elegant Fall Table for Two

It is a very nice weekend.  Weather is just amazing..  I have been cleaning the house and organizing the all my china.  I am running out of room.  My collection of vintage treasures keeps growing..  But I think it is time for a break..  I put a good day's work.  And a lovely dinner with my sweetheart sounds like the perfect way to enjoy the rest of the evening.
I wanted to make it special..  It is Saturday night you after all..  So while organizing my basement, I came across my Spode Delamere dishes and thought they were just perfect for the occasion.. I also had a set of beautiful and delicate Irish placemats and napkins that my sister-in-law Lilly brought me from her trip to Barbados.. These will certainly be the main characters and inspiration for my table this evening.  I want easy elegance.  Pretty crystal, elegant flatware, candles, a good bottle of wine.  You get the idea.  Great reward for a very productive day.
Here is my interpretation of a perfect evening with my hubby...
