Welcome to the 333rd Tablescape Thursday!
This week I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day table setting that’s a little different. I experimented around with mixing different patterns including plaid, paisley and velvet-edged napkin sheaths with a burlap-like look. The overall result is a Valentine’s Day table setting with a bit of a masculine feel.
A red lantern worked well as a centerpiece.
Plaid plates are great any time of year but they are especially nice during the winter months when we could use the rich colors to warm things up a bit.
The salad plates are heart plates I found several years ago in HomeGoods. They are by American Atelier at Home and the pattern is called Oregami Red. Yep, it’s really spelled that way on the back of the plate. Wonder if that was a typo.
This is a Valentine’s Day tablecape that’s romantic but without feeling too feminine or too sweet. The velvet-edged linen napkin sheaths are from Pier 1 several years ago. The napkins have a paisley design. I can’t remember where I bought those, I’ve had them so long. I think I found them in HomeGoods or Marshalls.
The last time I used the paisley napkins was in 2011 in this Christmas table setting with a Colonial Williamsburg style, Lemon/ Lime tree centerpiece.
I thought I’d be using the heart plates with white dishware when I first purchased them, but they didn’t look so great paired with white dinner plates.
So I went a completely different route. Plaid isn’t just for Christmas. Valentine’s Day is a winter holiday so have some fun and bring in the plaid! Plaid has a way of warming everything up. I do love it!
Tartan dinner plates are from Pottery Barn this past winter and are the same pattern as my winter bedding seen here: Dressing the Bed in Tartan for Winter.

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
