Dear Readers, welcome to my Va Va Va Valentine's Day Table!
I love Valentine's Day! My husband and I were married on February 12 many moons ago. Our reception was Valentine-themed complete with white painted manzanita bushes and red hearts. Jacqueline and I found these hear place mats at Home Goods recently. They are woven out of paper!
It seems like a long time ago since we were married, but in reality time has zoomed by.
The white heart plates are from Tai Pan Trading.
The napkins were also purchased at Home Goods. I tied them with a little gingham ribbon.
The table is graced with King's Crown goblets and red goblets.
Here's a little side view of the table. The red hob nail bowls were a find at Michael's a couple of years ago. We use them all the time for baked casseroles.
Just another happy little look at the red bowls.
We brought out the silver for this table. Of course we did, it is Valentine's Day.
A picture with the light streaming on the table. The red on the table is that reflected from the glasses.
I have just returned from a week in Virginia where I spent time with my husband. It was an early Anniversary visit. So good to see him! We made it to Colonial Village at Williamsburg, and I loved it! I may show a few photos later. I have never experienced such courteous drivers, than those at Williamsburg.
Our son and son daughter-in-law, and their two girls live in Richmond while he is attending medical school. We were able to go to their daughter Sydney's baby blessing.
Aivi, the big sister, is helping her mom cook. She was putting cooked pasta in cupcake wrappers.
Sydney is glad her big day is over. She was in a swing and I couldn't get a shot that wasn't blurry.
And nearby Richmond there is a famous Christmas Tree Shop Store that Kathleen has introduced many of us to.
I have to tell you that I was not able to find the bargains like Kathleen does. I DID find Friendly Village plates there.
Kathleen found them for one dollar, and I found them for $3.99! I didn't buy them. She does have a way with bargains. I think it is the kind of store that you need to shop often at. I did find a few bargains that I lugged home in my carry-on --- arghh!!
Thank you to Kathleen for hosting Let's Dish where I am posting this tablescape as well as at Tablescape Thursday.
