Time for another "Tablescape Thursday"! I'm really excited to start with a new theme. Valentine's Day is usually not one of those times that I do alot of decorating. But last year, when I started following Susan and some of the other fabulous tables out here in blogland, The Tablescaper's romantic Valentine table inspired me. I've been looking for great things ever since! I love the color red and this week's table is really red!
I found some really cute placemats at Kohl's the other day. You really can't beat their sale prices and with a coupon, I almost felt guilty picking these up. White plates (Summer Garden from Better Homes and Gardens), goblets from Big Lots and my everyday silverware complete the place setting. The heart topiaries are from Hobby Lobby a few years ago.
The dessert plates came from Kohl's too. With the price I paid for the placemats, I could get the 4 plates, which turned out to be on sale for half off! I can just picture a yummy, gooey chocolate dessert right in the middle.
Now for the napkins. I found these at Home Goods. They were too cute to pass up. But how do you fold them? Do you put them under the silver and cover up the heart? Do you put them in the glass with the heart upside down? Any suggestions? I would love to hear from you on how you use napkins with a single design.
Once again, I'm thrilled to be here with such a great group of people. I can hardly wait to see what you're doing this week. Thanks again Susan for sponsoring this week's party. Click on the button on the right to get back to the fun!
