Tablescape Thursday


I had planned to do a new tablescape using my Dollar Tree "Crystal" but couldn't find the red tablecloth I was going to use with it. How can you lose a RED tablecloth?? I had recently organized my linen closet and it isn't there, I have looked everywhere for it! I know I had one because here's a photo of it used last year in a tablescape!
See? It's beautiful, with tiny cutout hearts on the border. Anyway, my table is still bare, so I've re-posting a tablescape I did two years ago on Feb. 3, 2010, using the Dollar Tree "crystal."

Thanks to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday for us to look forward to weekly. Click here for lots more inspiration!

I'm sharing a Valentine Tea Party tablescape. I'm using my Dollar Tree "crystal" dishes.

I already had these vintage look Valentines and used those as place cards.


A red heart shaped doily is placed under a clear salad plate.

Red napkins were folded to look similar to hearts.

The flatware is tucked into the napkins

The Centerpiece:
I call this a wild hearts centerpiece,
puffy glitter hearts, roses and faux floral red grass in a crystal vase
a wire garland of mini hearts surrounds the vase.

View from the top:

A Valentine with two red mesh heart shaped boxes,
and two small white doves.

Each place setting had a different vintage Valentine place card.

Which is your favorite? You may take that seat!

The white sheer tablecloth was purchased at Ross several years ago. It has a beautiful embroidered design on it. I call it bridal veil fabric!


I hope you like my red and white Valentine Tea Party tablescape!


Happy Valentine's Day!
God Bless.

Katherine, this is just gorgeous. I really like the centerpiece. It is just wonderful with the puff hearts and the red grass placed in the silver vase. Well done. All of the vintage valentines are so lovely. Using all clear glass is such a pretty table and so unexpected, but just gorgeous. Love it all. Hugs, Marty

Southern Touch Catering said...

Very flirty and fun. I just love how you did the red napkin. What a great idea putting the heart under the glass too.

Hi Katherine

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment!

Your tablescape is so pretty and festive.

Best wishes and speedy recovery to your husband ..I will say prayers for him. I have many blog posts about Brooklyn (look at my sidebar under LABELS for the Brooklyn catagory)so perhaps your husband would enjoy looking at them as he recovers ..bring back some memories.

Kind regards, Pat

Oh, I'll be happy to sit anywhere for your Valentine Tea! Your table is gorgeous, as always. I can't believe your crystal dishes came from Dollar Tree - I'd better head out to my Dollar Tree and see what they have today!

What a beautiful tablescape! You are putting me in a festive mood! In our family we call Feb 14 "Sweetheart Day". I think it is because the boys always called hearts "sweethearts" when they were little tikes.

I'm glad to be back online today after a break --- and to visit your beautiful blog!

Blessings to you, Katherine!

Alycia Nichols said...

Totally worth seeing it again, Katherine! It's got "you" written all over it!!! I hope you find the red cloth soon, though. I hate it when that happens!!! Have a loving and happy Valentine's Day!

Calabasas High School said...

You did without the cloth just fine. Don't you hate it when you finally get organized and then you can't find anything?! Happy Valentine's Day! ~CJ

The Decorative Dreamer said...

This is wonderful! I love your centerpiece. It reminds me of love just bursting out everywhere! Those place cards are so pretty too. I hope you are able to find your pretty red cutout tablecloth. I must say I'm kinda glad you didn't because we got to see your red napkins very well against the white. I love the way you folded them. Beautiful tablescape!
