Martini Date Night Tablescape

Setting the table for date night...


Martini nights. Dark downtown lounges. Hidden bars with no signs, no names. Velvet curtains and piles of pillows.


 Haunting jazz filling every shadowed corner. 

Icy cold, big-as-a-plate, exotically flavored martinis in the wee hours of the night. 


Perched on a bar stool, sipping slowly, with the tip of a sexy stiletto swaying gently to the rhythm. 



Atmoshpere, music, THE drink, my hubby and of course, sexy shoes.




Capturing a little of that magic for our recent date night dinner.
