VALENTINE TABLE FOR FOUR

VALENTINE TABLE

Today's table really uses a variety of types of dinnerware - from formal to very cheap casual. 

VALENTINE TABLE 2

 I purchased this tablecloth at an estate sale years ago.  Can you see that even the eyelet edge has hearts?

VALENTINE TABLE 3

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.



VALENTINE TABLE 6

 The dinner plates are our wedding china, Moonspun by Lenox. 
VALENTINE TABLE 5

I used plastic, heart-shaped salad plates, purchased at Target long ago.

VALENTINE TABLE 7

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.

VALENTINE TABLE 9

I chose the flatware simply because of the pattern name.  How could I not use Willliam Rogers, Eternally Yours, for a Valentine table?


VALENTINE TABLE 10

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.



VALENTINE TABLE 8


Bread and butter plates are Vera Lace by Wedgwood.  The little butter domes were...did you guess it... purchased at an estate sale.



VALENTINE TABLE 11

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?


Valentine Table 12

Don't forget my Valentine linkup next Friday.  I hope to see you here.

Hi Laurie, I just love your table setting. Those heart plates are beautiful and who would know plastic. I love the white on white lacey plates. Sweet and pretty centerpiece too. Such an inviting table for four.
Thanks for sharing. Love it.

What a sweet table. I don't know if I've ever seen eyelet fabric with hearts before- very unique! Love the "keys" to your heart on the napkins! I haven't done a Valentine's table yet- I guess I better get crackin!

I love! LOVE the plateau. I have wanted one for about 20 years! Still don't have one. They are quite pricey here. Your table is darling.

Everything about this table is so beautiful. I especially love the linens, the tablecloth is wonderful and so are the napkin and hankie, great idea. Lovely choice of dinnerware as well.

Laurie, Beautiful! Beautiful linens (I am swooning over that tablecloth) the napkin/hankie combination is to die for. The plate stack is lovely. The heart plate finishes the setting to perfection.

Gee, I had been so pleased with myself to get my white eyelet tablecloth laundered and pressed. I think I better step things up a notch and make it snappy at that. Time is running out rapidly if I am to have things ready for the 6th.
