....I've set the table,
Just for you!
I know it has room for improvement, but I used my new dishes for our belated Valentines dinner. I had to be at school with the bitty one for her Valentines party....
....which was immediately followed by Jeffrey's wrestling meet.
BTW, Hartland is undefeated 6-6 in wrestling and one of the teams to beat at state! Go Jeffrey!
Anyways, this is about a table, not more of my incessant bragging about my kids.
Onto the table!
I dressed the table with an antique tablecloth I bought last summer for a whopping $7.50!
I know it would look alot better if I had ironed it. I was in a rush though and just ran out of time. I love the cutwork on this tablecloth.
Then of course....
.... the star of the table, my new dishes! I also drove myself crazy cause I wanted crackle glass goblets. Wouldn't you know I could not find any?! Not a single one! So I picked up these balloon glasses from Pier 1.
I am still on the hunt for the goblets though! I love the crackle glass and the view of the snow out the window.
For napkins, I used ones that I made. They are a brown ticking stripe.
Napkins are really easy to make. I won't even do a tutorial on them because Yvonne @ Stone Gable wrote an excellent one already. You can find it here. I put the napkins under the top plate like this.
I used my everyday silverware, but I do have my eye on a set from Horchows.
Of course you need candles cause it is Valentine's Day!
My wonderful sister bought these for me for a Christmas gift many years ago. I just love them! They are by Mikasa and have the tiniest hint of pale pink on the base.
Pale pink roses in a vase with some petals scattered around for a centerpiece. I picked the pale pink roses to go with the muted tones of the table. I love this vase. Everytime I look at it, it reminds me of how sweet my husband is. When we got our first house, we were at Pier 1 shopping for stuff. I saw this vase and really liked it. He wouldn't buy it cause he said he wasn't going to buy me just a vase. Argh, I was so upset at him. The next day he came home and sheepishly handed me the vase with a dozen roses in it. He is so thoughtful!
To add a pop of color....
.... a box of chocolates on each plate for my loves.
So there it is, my debut table with my new stuff! I still need to improve on my tablescaping skills a bit, but it's a start!
Roasted Red Potatoes
French Green Beans with Almond Slivers
Hope you enjoyed my tablescape as much as I did putting it together!
