Welcome to day 4 of the second annual Romantic Valentine’s Tablescape Blog Hop, where twenty bloggers have joined together to share their artistic interpretation of this sweet Holiday theme. All of the links to these creative bloggers are at the end of this post and truly there is something for everyone! Today I am happy to be sharing my Pink Depression Glass and my romantic table for two Valentine tablescape.
This inspiring event would not be possible without our talented friend Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate who brings this group together throughout the year.
Chloe welcomes individuals such as myself that love to do many things; crafting, gardening and decorating. I am not a professional decorator by any means. I just know that I have loved making my home feel and look welcoming since I was a young woman. My first whirl at decorating was when I was a kid and I made crepe paper curtains. So I guess what I am trying to say is this. Do what you love with passion and whether it is sewing, gardening, decorating or whatever just go for it, be authentic and be you!
Gosh time has flown by so quickly. Seems like we went to bed one night and woke up empty nesters! Throughout the year there are holidays that we celebrate without family around. However, I still enjoy decorating and I hope and pray that I always will! I view the holidays as a way for my husband and I to enjoy our time together as well as appreciate treasures of the past (many of these treasures are from the women in our family.) I lovingly bring out various China patterns, silver, mementos and linens while remembering the stories behind many of them. Last year I created this fun light and bright Valentine Table.
These pink depression glass plates were my Mother’s and they are the anchor for my color choices for this Valentine tablescape…and of course I truly love anything that has a pink, blush, or rose tint!
For this Valentine tablescape I knew I wanted to keep it feminine. I also used these three key components to build upon. This simple outline helps to keep me on track, otherwise I wander.
1.Colors(Pink, white, gold, green)
I layered the two depression plates on top of one another, then added the white birdcage on top of them. This added color, height and interest to the table. Of course because I do adore flowers, I added bouquets, garland and greenery too.
These rose tinted Mikasa wine goblets were a wedding gift from a friend and strangely enough I haven’t broken one of them! I am sure I have just jinxed myself…
I love a romantic dinner with soft music, plenty of candles glowing along with a few twinkling lights tucked under the gold mesh table runner. Love twinkle lights!
China Noritake-Savanah (My Mother’s)
I shopped the Wedding department at Hobby Lobby and that is where I found these white heart floating candles and they were only 99 cents a piece!
I wanted to dress up this birdcage so I added some narrow wire edged ribbon and a pearl necklace.
Seems every Valentine party should have a few nostalgic Valentines!
Not sure what our menu will be just yet.
But I do know what we will be having for dessert! Homemade dark chocolate truffles. Recipe will be shared next week! However if you are in need of candy recipe for this weekend try this crockpot candy.
