During the summer when it is just hubby and me for dinner, we really enjoy dining in our sunroom. In the evening, it's especially nice to relax and enjoy the view.
It was the two of us for dinner all weekend... although our daughter is home from college for the summer, she keeps busy with work, school and has her own social life. Unless she tells me she will be home, then I will usually cook for two.
For hubby's birthday, we had dinner on the sunporch watching the boats roll by... eventually a gorgeous sunset appeared.
|Dinner for two in the sunroom.|
|We love dining in this room -- very enjoyable to sit up high over the lake!|
|I love sunflowers. My mom told me that her mother's favorite flower was sunflowers. It eventually became my mom's favorite because it reminded her of my grandmother. Now it is my favorite as it reminds me of both of them.|
|The square plates are huge -- I'm using them as chargers tonight.|
|The bowl with the rooster and sunflower is the same set as the large plate. The flower inside the bowl is so pretty!|
|When I was looking for colored flatware, I couldn't decide on the color and finally ordered red. Turns out I use this red set almost as much as my everyday stainless!|
|The view from our seats.|
|I picked up four of these plates a few months ago -- they are a soft yellow color.|
|Love the sunflowers and rooster!|
|The view to the left side...|
|And the view to the right.|
|And looking straight ahead...|
|Candlelight dinner for two!|
