Today's table really uses a variety of types of dinnerware - from formal to very
I purchased this tablecloth at an estate sale years ago. Can you see that even the eyelet edge has hearts?
I used two chargers - the silver, square charger was a very inexpensive purchase at Tuesday Morning a few years ago, and the red metal charger was an on-line purchase last year.
The dinner plates are our wedding china, Moonspun by Lenox.
I used plastic, heart-shaped salad plates, purchased at Target long ago.
I used our zig zag wine stems, because of all of the silver on the table, and the water goblets (from an estate sale) ended up on the table, because I think they have a kind of romantic look.
I chose the flatware simply because of the pattern name. How could I not use Willliam Rogers, Eternally Yours, for a Valentine table?
Another estate sale provided me with the red napkins with stitched heart border. I topped those with handkerchiefs that I purchased from a "going out of business" sale. The "keys to my heart" napkin rings were found at another "going out of business" sale.
Bread and butter plates are Vera Lace by Wedgwood. The little butter domes were...did you guess it... purchased at an estate sale.
Faux potted rosebuds are placed on my vintage plateau, purchased from the Vintage Nest store. Can you get any cheaper than one of those tiny boxes of conversation hearts?
Don't forget my Valentine linkup next Friday. I hope to see you here.
It was great to have you visit. Thank you. laurie
