Tablescape Thursday


I'm very late for Susan's Tablescape Thursday! I have a good excuse though! We went to Disney World Wednesday (had free tickets) and I was too tired last night, and too sore, etc. today from all the walking at DW! I'm still going to post even though there's over 150 people already! I hope there will be a few viewers who will visit me tonight! I'm also joining Laurie's Valentine Party! Click on her name for more fun!

The tablecloth below was the inspiration for this Valentine's Day tablescape. I bought it a couple of months ago for $7.88 at TJ Maxx.

I'm using the square polka dot plates I bought at Home Goods last year.
The heart shaped ramekins are from Target, last year.

I'm using the white square dinner plates for chargers. They are from Walmart and were only $3.96 each.
Red velvet roses in a white vase with red dotted fabric makes a nice centerpiece. (The reason I used the fabric is because this white vase is trimmed with a yellow band!)

This pretty polka dot bowl with floral bouquets inside was only $3.99 at TJ Maxx. I think the floral looks so good with the polka dots!

A very simple, but sweet Valentine's Day tablescape!



How about a hot and spicy treat!

I don't use much red in our house because I have so much wine/berry painted walls.
The flatware is from Ross a year or so ago. It has clear acrylic handles and goes with so many colors.

The tablecloth has a border of little heart cutouts .

It is layered over a white Battenburg lace tablecloth.

Thanks to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday! Click on her name for more inspiration.
Thanks to Laurie at Bargain Hunting for hosting the Valentine's Party!


Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm a huge fan of polka dots, and red ones especially. They just make me happy. I like the tissue in the vase. Even if you weren't camouflaging a yellow band, it would look perfectly festive!

I loved your table cloth too.

Free tickets to Disney! We love DW and I actually bought some fun dishes last time--still waiting for the inspiration for a tablescape. Love your polka dots and I see that beautiful Lace tablecloth peeking out! Enjoy your Valentine's dinner. Linda

Hi Katherine,

I'm glad I checked back today! I'm delighted to see that you're here and that you've done such a pretty Valentine's table! The tablecloth is beautiful and what a bargain!

Great idea to use the fabric to cover the yellow trim on the vase. It provides additional color, softness, and texture.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Warmest regards,
Bill

Kathreen, I'm your new follower! I love your dishes and bowls, just great! The lace tablecloth is so pretty, I totally love it all. I'll be very honored if you come and say hello too, you're very welcome! What a great idea you had to cover the bottom of the base with the yellow material, I will it next time.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S
