A Valentine's Week-end Setting

I just couldn't let Valentine's Day go by without setting up a romantic table.  I've had these Royal Jackson dinner plates for quite some time, but I haven't used them in a tablescape.
I set this table, for the most part, at the beginning of the week, with a pink tablecloth and these mirrored chargers that I purchased at Tuesday Morning.  I also used a battenburg table runner.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for a centerpiece, so I left the table this way for several days.  When Valentine's Day came, my table was still not finished.  Hubby saved the day with these gorgeous tulips.  I wasn't sure that the reddish pink tulips would work, but after adding the red and pink hearts, I liked the combination of colors.  
I found a small crystal cake plate, added the hearts, which also gave the vase of flowers elevation.

To change this table for any occasion, red marbles or red rose petals could be used in the bottom of the cake plate instead of sparkly hearts.
These gorgeous linen napkins were purchased at an estate sale.  I found 12 that match, and they are all monogrammed, which I love!
I also love bread and butter plates.  When I don't have the matching bread and butter plate, I use these little glass plates, which I also found at an estate sale.  They are the perfect size!
The crystal napkin rings were my mother's.
The iced beverage stems are Cristal D'arques Longchamp and the wines are Fostoria Corsage.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you all had a romantic and loving Valentine's Day!  I sure did!  Come back soon!!

  3. Hubby to the rescue!!!!! It's nice when they come through like that! I remember seeing those chargers at Tuesday Morning and going completely gaga over them!!! I didn't get them, of course, but it's good to visit them on your table! Hooray for the monogrammed linen napkins!!! They're beautiful! I love anything with a monogram, even if it has nothing to do with my own initials! Very pretty!!!
