Just finished our first annual Valentines dinner with out kids and grands ... so much fun. I set two tables and made place card holders. Of course the Dollar Store came in handy making the place card holders, ala, a sugared heart gum drop for a base, and a heart pick (7 for a dollar), which I sawed a grove into the top with a steak knife, before adding the cute cards made from a graphic that I found at Graphics Fairy. I thought it looked rather like toile, and I always love how toile looks with transferware.
Table number one is above, and table number two is to the right and below. I used my red transferware dishes collection for the first time ever. That was a lot of fun, I paired them with my creamy white Rosepoint dishes, which I adore. Thanks Julie. The romantic lovers sculpture, from my bedroom, took over center stage, as you see.
