SUMMER COTTAGE TABLESCAPE

I just can’t give up on directing subliminal advertising toward my sweetheart through tablescapes.  This ad has about as much chance of working as the Paris tablescape.

You may recall that one of my cloches I posted last week, I called “Arriving at the Summer Cottage and Finding that the Caretaker hasn’t Mowed”.  Yep, I name my cloches!  Please don’t call the funny farm though.

I used it on my tablescape to send a message to my sweetheart that I’d love to have a summer cottage.  Of course, if I tell him that, he always responds that I only want it, so I’ll have another house to play in with my “stuff”.  (He may be partially right).

We started our dinner with shrimp cocktail.

When I removed our shrimp cocktail stems, he was confronted with another cottage.

We had chicken casserole in the little cassolettes and baked potatoes in the potato baskets.

When my sweetheart asked for salt and pepper, I passed him more cottages!

And when he wanted butter on his potato, I gave it to him on another cottage plate.

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for him to buy me a cottage, but we did enjoy our cottage dinner.
