Welcome to the 128th Tablescape Thursday!
Today I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day tablescape with a fun, tasty centerpiece. I’ve posted the tutorial showing how it’s made Ice Cream Candy-Car Sundae. This sweet treat makes a great Valentine’s Day or birthday gift. You’ll love how easy and inexpensive it is to make. Also, you’ll find a tutorial for the napkin fold I used in this tablescape here: Pocket Napkin Fold.
♥ Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥
Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!
When love is not madness, it is not love.
~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
I claim there ain’t
As great as Valentine.
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
Poetry spills from the cracks of a broken heart, but flows from one which is loved.
~Christopher Paul Rubero
At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.
The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
~Henry Van Dyke
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
kisses are a better fate
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main,
And threading the eye of a yellow star: -
So many times do I love again.
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes
True love stories never have endings.
Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination. ~Voltaire
Soul meets soul on lovers’ lips.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley
