VALENTINE TABLESCAPES

Valentine Party Table

I’m sharing past Valentine’s tablescapes today.  In 2013, I had a “box lunch” Valentine party.

Another 2013 tablescape was our Valentine dinner for two.  If you are interested in seeing more of any of these scapes, you may click on the picture of that tablescape.

This 2012 tablescape was all about red, white and hearts.

A Valentine party tablescape, in 2012, took us to the City of Love, Paris.

Our dinner table for a Valentine celebration in 2011 featured a Christmas tree decorated with hearts.

In 2010, the Valentine table was brown, blue and white, with romance.

Lovey dovey table in 2009. 

My watermark on photographs sure has changed through the years, and I think my camera and photography have improved over the years.  It’s kind of interesting for me to go back and look at past posts and feel that I’ve made some progress with my photography.

I hope some of these photos have provided you with some inspiration for a Valentine table.  Please don’t forget my Fifth Annual Valentine linkup on February 7th.  For more information about the linkup, click on the party button.  I’m so glad you visited me today.  laurie

Such wonderful inspirations, Laurie!

Laurie, it's fun to look back at these pretty Valentine's Day tables. Thanks for the inspiration. Looking forward to the party!

To me, you and Valentines Day are a perfect match. Your tables alway make me think of a vintage Valentines Day card, if that makes sense.

I want to join the party. I'm hesitating only because my luncheon club is coming here for a luncheon on the 8th, and I don't want them to see my table in advance. How silly is that?

Hi Laurie, What a wonderful post of tablescapes for Valentines over the years.

Everything is gorgeous and your last pic, the one with the doves in the centerpiece caught my attention.
I have the same set of doves given to us on our wedding day over 40 years ago. They were a gift from a dear friend who died several years later to bone cancer. I have loved those doves and they are very precious to me as it is the last gift from our friend.
They look gorgeous on your table as the centerpiece.

Thank you for sharing your tables over the years. I am inspired by your great ideas.

I love all your Valentine tables but my all time favorite would be the Paris one probably because I know I will never get there and fantasizing about going is all I can do.susie
