Hearts & Polka Dots

Hello Everyone!
It's almost Valentines Day so I thought I would share
with you my new tablescape and some inspiration photos.
I found some new Valentines Day dishes at Ross.
I went with a classic red and white color scheme.
The red glitter heart topiary is from Michaels.
I added the extra ribbons.
I added polka dot ribbon to the champagne flutes.
I stuck little red felt hearts on them as well.
All are from Michaels craft stores.
The view of the dining room.
The Valentine tablescape.
Another view of the room.
The flatware is from Reed & Barton.
The ivory circle placemats are from Ross.
You can see the tiny heart cut outs on the ivory dishes.
The red heart bowls are at Michaels on sale for 99 cents.
They also have pink and white. How cute.
I added the heart angel wings to each bowl.
Another view.
Another view of the tablescape.
The tall red goblets are from Marshalls.
I'm using them as candleholders today.
The red tea light holders are from Michaels.
As you enter from the hallway.
This is a small pitcher from my grandmother.
I added the roses and heart ribbon.
I hope you get some of this...
Or this...Yummy!
How about this pretty pink rose basket?
So romantic and dreamy...
Pink roses in a heart shape. Beautiful.
Or some of each in a precious pink cart.
So adorable!
Have a wonderful week!

Becca said...

Well, LOOK at your gorgeous table, all ready for a wonderful Valentine's Day meal !! However, I have a feeling your hubby would rather remove two of those place settings so that he can have you all to himself to dine with on the upcoming romantic holiday, right ?! It all looks fabulous ... and I LOVE the pillows (might have to borrow that idea) !! Girl, you always knock my socks off !! I'm always inspired by your creativity. Hugs, Becca

Becca said...

Melissa, Melissa, Melissa ... you always say the sweetest things !! THANKS for your kind and funny note about my mudroom. And, okay, so you're making me think twice about retiring my monkey wallpaper !! Thank you because I'm not sure I really want to tackle the removal of that paper. Hugs, Beca

Chari said...

Hello sweet Girl...

Ohhh Melissa...your Valentine's table is just gorgeous!!! I love, love, LOVE your new dishes from Ross! I just love the reticulated glassware...it's so lacy and frilly! There is a Ross up where the kids love...I will have to go and check it out, although by the time I get there...I'm sure these pretties would be gone! They look gorgeous with the little red heart bowls from Michaels...it's just a lovely Valentine's place setting, my friend! You just can't beat the classic red and white Valentine decor...it's still my favorite! I also like how you added the sweet angel's wings to the heat bowls...so very pretty and it really is in all the little details which you have provided so beautifully!!! Love, love, LOVE the red sparkly heart topiary...that's adorable! Ohhh...and my favorite is how you used the pretty red and white polka dotted ribbon with the white ribbon with red hearts!!! You know, I haven't even had the chance to shop for anything Valentine related this year...except for that white pedestal dish and matching bowl! In fact, I've been busy, busy with having my daughter Jenni and five grandkids here visiting from Texas! She surprised me with her visit...I was just elated! She left to go to NE. where her husband was on Monday. I'm really missing her!!! Anyway, I just didn't get to my blogs during those few days...so sorry that I'm so late in getting by to see you, dear friend!

Well...this has been such a treat! Getting to see you lovely table and that gorgeous dining room!!! I know that I always say it but can't help myself...you really do have the most beautiful home, Melissa!!! Thank you so much for coming by to take a peek at my Beloved Valentine table and for the sweet Valentine's well wishes! Do you and Alex have special plans to celebrate the "day of love"? Have a wonderful day of it...Darlin'!!!

Love ya,
Chari
