Happy Valentine's Day! I originally posted my Valentine's Tablescape a couple weeks ago but thought it would be perfect for a Chari's Sunday Favorites post. I apologize if you have already seen it..but this was one of my favorites !
Original post 2/3/10
I'm particpating with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I have so much fun putting a tablescape together and with Valentine's quickly approaching I thought I better get in gear and get busy on a Valentinescape. So I started playing with my dishes and to my surprise I had everything on hand to create a red and white theme...well almost everything..I did need some fresh flowers.
These placemats and matching napkins were purchased in the most beautiful shoppe in Carmel last year. These were on sale and I loved the print and rich colors.
I used my faux pearl braclets again for napkin rings! My napkins wear them as much as I do.
My favorite red goblets...I love the bubbles in the glass.
The flatware is King Cedric-Oneida.
I layered a portugal charger, then my Lenox "Butterfly Meadow" salad plate and topped it with a white sunflower bowl.
It still needed more red so I found a set of fun little bowls I bought at Christmas just because they were so cute..a polka dot and a stripe.
I finshed the table with a white votives candles in crystal holders and a red and white bouquet of flowers.
I later found these little red heart shaped voitives at Target for $1.00 and added them to my table along with a heart-shaped plate...and
before I could finish the table...I had some visitors drop by and they love chocolate so much I...
added two heart shaped ramekins from Target (their favorite store) filled with chocolate truffles just for them.
So now I have two looks for this place setting...a heart shaped ramekin or a cute little polka dot bowl as a finishing touch. I must say I really do like the little ramekins too.
Those little lovebirds really like dining by candlelight!
Happy Valentine's Day!
