Tablescape Thursday...it's all about Love!

Finally getting a chance to table scape again and so will show off
the Valentine's tables.
Time to move onto Springier decor but I sure did like having all the red out after Christmas was done, as I love Red!!

The center piece for the table consists of several things grouped on an old silver plate cake stand I found at the thrift store.
A rose topiary, a romantic ladies bust, an old garden urn planter with a red mercury ball in it and this sweet little sentimental Victorian piece I found in my antiquing travels.
It reads; We Count Our Blessings and has a place to dial and change the number of years married, number of children and number of grandchildren you have.
I thought it really unique and sweet.

I topped the table with a large piece of pretty old lace I have had for a long time.
It is very detailed and has little cherubs and things dancing on it.
It is a favorite piece to use at Valentines Day time of year.

The buffet or sideboard got decorated with many black, white and red things.
Several little German porcelain cherub figurines I have collected, some flowers in a Victorian milk glass vase , glass with red scatter hearts and more.

The place setting; I used our red chargers, black and white floral china layered with black and white cameo like dessert plates, black napkins with red jeweled napkin rings, our red handled flatware, black and red stemware.
And I topped the dessert plates with little metal glittered LOVE signs found at Michaels in the dollar isle.

It was fun to leave up the black Christmas tree in the corner and decorate it
for Valentines Day also. Also sets some romance with the sparkly white lights on the tree.

I think black, red and white always a classic.
Red being my favorite color I like this table scape alot!

I also added some red mercury glass votive holders to the table as well as some red heart candles as scatters ( a friend sent them to me in a gift).

I also had to do up the kitchen table, we used it for dessert or breakfast.

I found these pretty cutout felt place mats at Pier 1 this year. I like
how they show up on the white table.

Layered some textured cream plates under some cute "dessert" plates I found, that have a different dessert on each one.
It was fun and whimsical!!
Now onto March, Happy Spring everyone!

We are happy to be joining in on Tablescape Thursday at

I love red too, and use it as my Winter Decorating color along with some other dark colors, but I am ready to move on to spring colors next week.
Everything looks lovely. Really thought your kitchen table came out cute, and love that rose tree on the other table. Very pretty.
Blessings, Nellie
