Valentine’s Day already, where has the time gone? I say this as far as this year and the past 38 also. Our second oldest son was born on Valentine’s Day and he was/is a special gift. This pink girly table wouldn’t be his cup of tea, but I love it. I also have a tablescaping friend who loves pink and I thought of you Alycia when I put this together.
Most of the items have made appearances on previous tables and therein lies the challenge. Use what you already have but in a different way. I laid the table with a white cloth with a flowery pattern. It was topped with a dusty pink round cloth. No chargers or placemats this time.
I haven’t used my pink and white dishes in a very long time and they were begging to come out of hiding. They were topped with a white salad plate. Also begging to come out of hiding were the dark pink rose plates. Yup, I went back into my tablescaping bunker again for these treasures that I scooped up at TJ Maxx back in the summer.
A sherbet glass with a little bling and a few Hershey’s chocolate hearts rest comfortably on the rose plates. Thanks again Eileen! No fancy folds this time, just a pink napkin wrapped around the dinner plate.
The mother of pearl flatware is just right for this table as is the stemware.
For the centerpiece I used a mercury glass vase with various shades of pink flowers. Alongside it are sliver toned candlesticks. I intertwined a tinsel heart garland around them.
I used the pink gift box on my birthday table last year and added some sparkle to it this time. Gabbi has been trying to talk me out of this lacy pink bottle since I found it at Goodwill’s last summer.
In lieu of a full blown dessert table this year I just baked a few treats. These vanilla cupcakes are all dressed up and ready to be eaten and I’ll share the recipe with you tomorrow. I placed some of them in my cheese keeper and the others in the tall mini cake stand.
The white thingamajig is also from TJ Maxx and is a great table filler.
I hope your Valentine’s Day is as sweet as all of mine have been. Smooches!!!
