Children’s Valentine’s Day Table Setting

Welcome to 230th Tablescape Thursday!

Thanks so much for all the great comments you left on yesterday’s “Brass is Back!” post.  You made some amazing points and I so enjoyed hearing your perspective on the resurgence of quality brass pieces in the home.  I especially love that so many of you don’t let the latest trend pressure you into changing or discarding that which you truly love.

If you’ve been reading BNOTP over the last few weeks, you know that my friend, Marie, has decorated her beautiful home for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.  I shared one of her wonderful Valentine’s Day table settings in this post:  A Valentine’s Day Table Setting, Elegant and Whimsical

Marie didn’t leave out the cute table her sweet grandchildren use…it got a delightful tablescape, too.  I love the saying on the sign that hangs in this area and I love that Marie decorates down low in this area where the children can enjoy it.

This little table is the same table Marie used when her children were growing up.  So wonderful that she kept it and is now able to use it with her six grandchildren.  The heart glasses are so cute….notice how the straw actually wraps around the outside of the glass.  Fun!

Marie also hung adorable bags (from Pottery Barn) on the backs of the chairs.  They hold special Valentine’s Day treats and treasures for each grandchild.  Each is personalized with that grandchild’s name.  (I placed a little heart over each name for privacy.)   The girls got heart-shaped bags with pretty rick rack trim.

The boys got “envelope” shaped bags, also personalized with their name.  Marie, thanks so much for sharing this darling table for Tablescape Thursday!

    Susan – this table is simply adorable! I just hope that some day you will show us where Marie stores all of her decorations. I cannot imagine, but I’ll bet she is more organized than I!! I love the chair covers with the names on them – I would love to be a child and find one of those at my Valentine’s Day table! Thanks for hosting.

  3. Such a darling table, sure makes me miss my Bailey around sitting at his small table drawing and playing with legos. Love the sign on the wall. Thanks for hosting each week. hugs ~lynne ~

  4. Great ideas for a children”s table. I can hardly wait for Beatrice to be old enough to enjoy something like this at my house! Thanks for hosting us and for inviting us for a peak at this table full of inspiration. Cherry Kay

  5. Marie is amazing! What a fun table for the children. Love the cute holder on the back of each chair. I bet her grands beg to go visit her. Susan, Thanks for hosting TT. laurie

  6. That’s so sweet that your friend decorates that little table for so many occasions for her grandchildren! That’s a lasting memory for them…and for her to watch their joy, I’m sure! I remember the one she did around Christmastime. She has a wonderful creative streak! Have a good Super Bowl weekend!!!

  7. Gorgeous, as always! Love the creativity….

  8. What a great table and chairs set! I’m sure those children look forward to visiting their Grandma, with all those special things waiting! BTW, I saw the new Pottery Barn bunny dishes, and they are small versions of the cute ones you showed last year, with the dish on the bunny’s feet. So adorable!! Linda

    • Linda, they are back! I saw them while in the store the other day and they are the same size. They probably look smaller since my pics were so up-close and large, but they are the same size. If you like them, get them now because they were gone weeks before Easter last year. I’m sure the eBay sellers are buying them all up NOW as we speak. Grrr, hate that they do that!

  9. ABsolutely adorable!

  10. What a sweet setting for little kids…I love it!

  11. What a darling table! I know Marie’s grands adore visiting her to see what special things she has arranged for them each time. So many cute ideas here!

  12. What a cute child’s Valentine table.

  13. As a retired third grade teacher, and seeing this wonderful table, I do think valentine’s day was meant especially for children… Sure we grown ups like to milk it for all it’s worth, with a nice dinner out but all the frou frou and fun is the stuff of little girls’ dreams… of course, Im still a little girl at heart!!

  14. gotta love a great table like that

  15. Susan,
    I adore that your friend Marie has a special table and unique tablescapes for each holiday and Season for her grandchildren!!! Thank you for sharing all of her creative talents with us!
    Thanks for hosting each week, I do so enjoy Tablescape Thursday! Always inspiring!!!

  16. Absolutely charming! Love the heart shaped plates! Can you imagine how exciting it would be to be Marie’s grandchild and having a play date at her house during any holiday… how fun!

  17. Adorable! What child wouldn’t LOVE sitting at that table (and adults too for that matter).
    Have a great weekend 🙂

  18. What a sweet and adorable kids tablescape for Valentines! I am so inspired with this dear Susan, as my grandgirls are coming this weekend and I’m gonna just set up a tablescape for them!! Thanks for sharing and for hosting your exciting meme each week..I enjoy linking and visiting such great tablescapes too! Big hugs,

  19. Marie has six VERY lucky grandchildren! I can just imagine how a litle child would look at that table-it would seem like an absolute wonderland… such a lovely thing to do for them! Thank you so much for sharing it!

  20. Wow…!! how wonderful to have a place to store things and reuse them so long after their creation. I had to sell everything I owned…to downside into an efficiency. just love that others have these precious things they can share with we virtual voyeurs.

  21. Susan, this is adorable. That Marie is a thoughtful grandmother. 😉 Don’t you know those children love spending time with her! Thanks for hosting each week. ~ Sarah

  22. Susan Brown says

    Simply Adorable

  23. Wonderful table setting. The grandchildren must love their Grandmother very much and feel so special. Love the name hangings on the back of the chairs. Children remember these special things, my own granddaughter, now 16, still talks about the tea parties and dressing up with my *jewels*, as she calls them.
    I also noticed those beautiful window hangings.
    Thank you Susan and Marie and looking forward to more tours!!! 🙂

  24. Thanks for hosting , Susan!

  25. Marie is amazing and so generous to allow you to share all this with us!!!! I have the same heart plates but they are the salad late size. I wish I had found the dinner size too. Love all the Anna Lee figurines. Such a great table for the kids. XO, pinky

  26. This is such a sweet little table! I hope I have grandkids and energy to treat them so very specially when I reach that stage! Thanks for hosting!

  27. Love those envelop and heart bags on the backs of the chairs. So adorable!

  28. How cute, cute, cute. I just adore this table.
    I love the table runner. Any idea where she found it?
    Please keep sharing her wonderful displays. They are so inspiring.

  29. Susan..Marie’s table for her grandchildren is just so over the top adorable…I remembered her Christmas one and the ever so cute stockings on the table legs!…Marie is certainly deserving of the “Best Grandma” award!…

  30. Cute, cute, cute table!
    Fun to see and gave me some great ideas. May your February be FANTASTIC!
    God Bless and love,

  31. Adorable!….Christine

  32. Oh yes, that table is adorable!!! Love the sweet valentine card holders on the chairs. Such a great idea. I think setting special tables for the wee folk is one of my favorite things.. Although ours are getting older now.. when do they quit sitting at the children’s table? xo marlis

  33. Totally sweet for the little ones and very ‘heart warming’. The grandchildren should be delighted. ☺ -Brenda-

  34. Very nice!
