Last night the Mr. and I had a lovely dinner date at Flour+Water in the Mission.
The food was delicious, the time together was great and the ambiance and decor definitely left me inspired. I clearly have a love for rustic/industrial design and this restaurant was filled with it. Chalkboard walls, raw wood beams, rustic tables and I loved the simple napkins (must find something like them for our place). One interesting element that I had never seen before were science style beakers used as candle votives. My phone had died, so I don’t have any pictures (although you can kinda see one in the picture above taken from their website), but it inspired me to write a little post on other creative DIY votives for a table setting.
Beakers via Amazon that can make great and quirky votives (or vases too if you want!).

Speaking of Pinterest, I’m planning to participate in the Pinterest challenge initiated by two of my favorite bloggers – Young House Love and Bower Power! I may actually try one of the DIYs posted above – you’ll just have to wait and fine out!
Ps. This week has FLOWN by! Can’t believe it’s already Friday! TGIF everyone 🙂
