Welcome to the 24th Tablescape Thursday!
Ok, I know it’s really the first Tablescape Thursday…but I didn’t want to start the count over just because our tablescaping day moved two days down the week.
I’ll be sharing a Valentine’s Tablescape today and I’d love to know where you think it looks best…the breakfast room or the dining room. I put together a little Valentine’s table to share today. I couldn’t decide if I wanted this tablescape in my breakfast room or dining room…so I’m showing it to you in both. I’ll let you decide where it looks best.
First…the breakfast room…
The crystal candle holders were a gift I received almost 20 years ago. The center piece was crocheted by my Mom over 50 years ago.
I actually did some baking for this tablescape. I’ve been hoping to try a new Wilton “heart-shaped” baking pan. It worked like a charm! The little heart cakes came out very easily. Michaels has the Wilton heart pans, too. I saw them while shopping in there recently.
I filled them with raspberry preserves…
I used my Lenox, Butler’s Pantry, Gourmet as a charger for this setting. The dinner plate is vintage Tower by Spode. The red salad plates are plates I bought last summer at Home Goods.
Found these little pearl napkin rings several months ago at Old Time Pottery for just $1 each.
Candlelight is always perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Tea glasses are Araglin by Waterford. The Crimson Hock wine glasses are also by Waterford.
When I bought these little cranberry salt cellars a few years back, I knew they would be great for Christmas. I wasn’t thinking about the other “red” holiday. They look right at home with the Crimson Hock goblets.
Okay, let’s move this table setting to the dining room.
Now, the same tablescape…but this time in the dining room and the table is set with six place settings, instead of four.
Flatware is Towle, King Richard
Close-up of Spode, Tower…this china bears the old Copeland Spode hallmark, indicating it was produced in the 1920′s.
Bread plate in Spode, Tower…
A “Love” pitcher centerpiece
In which room did you like this Valentine’s Day table setting best? It really looks at home with the red walls in the dining room, doesn’t it?
