Valentine Tablescape

I wanted to do a Valentine tablescape, but didn't have a clue of what to do. I started looking around the house for something to use and found all this!


I've had this silhouette picture a few years, but don't think I've ever used it on my blog

I bought it at an antique shop in Cocoa Beach, FL while on vacation. It isn't an antique as they had lots of them all in different designs. I had a hard time deciding which one to buy!

It works well for this centerpiece, don't you think?

I have square red chargers and red polka dot square plates so I started to "build" a place setting with those.
 I added a square black plate and red heart shaped ramkins. Red voltines are inside them now, but I'm going to make brownies in them tomorrow!

I layered a red tablecloth and this lace tablecloth:

Can you see the tiny heart cutouts on the red tablecloth?

I think I bought both of these tablecloths at Ross years ago.


The "crystal" is from Dollar Tree




Some of the faux red roses are also from Dollar Tree

 

 Instead of putting a rose on the napkins I placed them beside the ramkins


 
 I'm very happy with how this red, black and white Valentine tablescape came together!
 We aren't having guests for dinner, but we are enjoying seeing this tablescape daily
 I'm joining Kathleen's Let's Dish , Susan's Tablescape Thursday, and The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday. Click on their names for lots more inspiration.




I hope you enjoyed my Valentine Tablescape.
Happy Valentine's Day!

I really like your Valentine's table because I think that men would be comfortable with your design, as well as women. That's a hard challenge to overcome. Well done! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Hello Lady K,

Very sofisticated settings. Red & black is one of my fave color combo.

LOVE LOVE the picture inspiration. The use of the black with the red on this table is so pretty and something I would never have thought to do.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!
