courtyard dinner

I had a pretty wonderful weekend full of down time with some family and close friends. On Saturday I had the idea to surprise Andy with a homemade dinner in our courtyard. I wanted to create something special without entering the realm of super fancy (and getting in over my head). Like everyone else, I have a million things to check off my list during the weekend so I needed to keep both the cost and the preparation to a minimum. I gladly ran downtown to pick up some flowers and greenery at the flower market; and once home, paired them with my favorite candles, table runner, and dishes for the table. The set-up was so simple, but the extra creativity helped us to focus on the moment, making it a more memorable dinner for the two of us.
