Tablescape Thursday

It is tablescape Thursday at Susan's. Hi Tablescapers! It is Minkey here! We monkeys love our food and this past week we had a great escape to Charleston , SC which is reeving up for the musical spoletto time. (not sure about the spelling!)
We stopped in at the above place for some lunch and I thought I would cheat and show you our tablescape which we monkeys created.
It started with the usual linen cloths, flowers, water glasses, salt and pepper, roll plates--get the picture?
Then Zephir (in the red hat) and I (Minkey, the adorable one) popped into action!

We ordered espresso....... DON'T YOU THINK THAT WE ARE are THE TABLESCAPE?
We had a romantic time. Pets really weren't allowed so we just poked out our servant's carrier bag. We actually saw a lady that looked like Miss Marple eating here, but it would have been rude to take her picture---she even had the hat!
For dessert we climbed trees......

and watched a pelican in the sunset!

Such a cute tablescape! I like that your husband was participating and looks like he was enjoying it!

My little grandson's favorite song is "Morgan the Monkey loves to mamba!" Have you heard it? I get that song on my mind and it stays for hours! LOL!

What a lovely spot to stop for expresso - it is too bad you could not sneak a shot of Miss Marple!

My sister used to live in Charleston, and that is one of my favorite restaurants. It's been consistently good over the years. Glad you had a great time!

Those little monkeys are my favorite toy. Isn't it wonderfu when our husands enjoy doing these kinds of things with us? I think is a great blog, great name too!
Thanks for your kinds words. That happened twenty years ago and it was a great learning experience. We were so novice in the chocolate business that it never dawned on us that the white chocolate was just a coating. Learning is painful sometimes.
Please come back and visit often.
Have a great summer.
