Welcome to Red Couch Recipes to my Love is in the Air Tablescape!
Love was in the air for me almost 24 years ago when my husband and I married on February 12. Our whole wedding was built upon a Valentine's theme. We were living in the foothills of Northern California and cut down two manzanita trees, painted them white, and decorated them with red hearts. The decorated manzanita trees really did look beautiful lit up at night at the wedding reception. I still have some of the hearts that adorned those trees.
My sister Jacqueline, a.k.a. Dish Fairy, gave me these heart dishes last year after Valentine's Day. I love them! I got the idea for the name Dish Fairy from Tricia, Dull and Dutiful Blog, who calls her sister the Dish Fairy.
Take another look at the clean and simple heart-shaped dishes.
These are the cookies that I made for my family, and then made more dough for my Activity Day Girls (church girls) to make when they came to my house today. They are so fun and Valentiney. You can click HERE for the recipe and technique I used.
The ruby goblets are King's Crown, another gift from the Dish Fairy. My Aunt Ionia had a set like these and always used them at Christmas. I think it was these goblets that started my love for pretty dishes. The bowls are from Michael's last year.
A side view of the tablesetting.
I have used these happy plaid napkins on lots of tables as well as the cream napkin rings. I purchased the napkin rings from Karin at the Style Sisters. She is back blogging after her big move. Stop in and say welcome back.
I love the look of clear glass on a table!
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's with those you love. My father always gave his children a heart-shaped box full of chocolates. I have such fond memories of Valentine's Day though the years, and we would have been married on Valentine's Day, but it fell on a Sunday the year we were married.
