Simple Sweet Peas

My hubby picked me a sweet little bouquet of sweet peas from the garden
so I thought why not put together a table featuring the sweet peas.

I pulled out my pink tablecloth,
added some white placemats
and my everday dishes.

My favorite accent plates that seem to go with everything.

A simple white bowl and pink napkin
with my delicately floral wine glass.

A simple crocheted doilie and the beautifully fragrant sweet peas.

I wanted to keep this table simple so I just added
a tealight holder with these light pink tealights
on either side of the sweet peas.

I find that no matter how simple the meal
a pretty table makes it seem so much better :)

Now we use our table for a lot of things
so it's just not practical for us
 to keep it dressed up throughout the week.

I do like to keep with my weekly theme though
so this is what my weekday table looks like.

Two pretty little doilies for the tealights
and the bouquet of sweet peas in the center.
Simple, sweet and pretty.
