Tablescape for One

So last time I posted to Tablescape Thursday I talked about not using my dishes.  So many of you were so encouraging that my husband and I have talked about having a date night and actually using those dishes.  What can I say, I'm caving to peer pressure. ;)  LOL!
My DH was away this weekend so I went to my fav grocery store.  I'm in the middle of orchard and small farm country so there's always good eats.  My total treat place is Idylwilde.  Think Whole Foods meets farmstand.  It's worth going just for the experience, nevermind the fab food.
The glass is a flea market fun find and the juice is fresh squeezed OJ.  Literally.  They used to do it right in front of you, but I think it got too hard to maintain in the middle of the store, but trust me this is legit.  My DH calls it liquid gold 'cause of the cost.  I say it's my treat and I don't waste a drop so no harm, no foul. :)  I watched the gal make the cider doughnut.  I wish blogland have smell-o-vision.  The sweet smell of this doughnut is, well, FANTASTIC!  The spinach wrap is holding sliced turkey with fresh spinach and tomato on a fun basic white Italian bisque plate.  The orange tulip bowl is holding organic peach yogurt (it has uber delicious cream in the top wen you open the container!!!).  The bowl was my grams.  She was going to pitch her multi-colored set of tulip bowls and I rescued them from certain dumpster doom. I have an avocado one, blue one, and gold one to go with this orange one.  Score me! :)

Are ya hungry yet?

I'm linking up my party of one over here:
Tablescape Thursday- #80


  1. Oh, that looks just delicious, and what a cute place setting. I always think it's important to treat yourself when you are dining alone. And I like how you've done it here.
