I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

My Love For Valentine's Day.

My Inspiration for this Tablescape was my love for putting a
Victorian table together for
Valentine's Day.
I purchased this lovely plate it Ross for $3.99 
had to have all four.
The pattern is Amore Rose.
I made my Victorian Menu card's for this Tablescape ! 

Do you remember my ruffled placemat's from
Vintage and Shabby Tablescape this past Aug ?

I did use four layers of Dishes..

I hope you are having a wonderful Day !!


My Ceterpiece is a mix of pink mini carnations and
Pink Alstroemeria.. 

This plate has words on it like Love!! Love !! and more Love can you see it ?

I purchased this Dessert plate from Ebay  some time ago.
The pattern reads Bavaria Schumann so sweet.
I did put pink ribbon through the holds on the plate just of Fun.

Time to light the candles and have a glass of wine.

I hope you all come Back!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you all so Much.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day coming up next week.

So gorgeous! What a beautiful tablescape!

Shannon @ COZY HOME SCENES said...

I love your mix and match dishes, but especially the heart plate. I see that set at Ross, and love it each time I go. Yet I only have a limited amount of space for dishes, so I've had to be more selective about what I bring home with me. I'll just have to enjoy those plates through your pictures.

You do a wonderful job at showing that everything doesn't have to match, so anyone can have a lovely table for any occasion. Thanks for sharing at the Your Cozy Home Party!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sue said...

Visiting from The Tablescaper and A Holiday Haven- I love what you did to make this so romantic and ethereal. The heart plates are so pretty, as are the ruffled chargers. I shopped at a Ross store when I was in CA a few years ago. They had SO much neat stuff. We only have TJ's and Marshall's here and they do not compare. :-) Sue
