Okay here we go. Table 1 is just plain fun. On the table is a wonderfully textured red cloth with a heart printed topper. The topper has always reminded me of conversation hearts candy. The red glasses are accented with conversation heart straws. Since the topper has lots of fun colors I am able to use my Fiesta to create a very non-traditional V-day table.
Love the suede heart napkin rings and the bright happy colors of the topper.
My favorite part of this table is this Valentine
Mini who is almost 16 made this for her dad and I years ago. I love how she said to Mamma and Deddy! I love it and have had it on the fridge since she gave it to us.
I think we will have trifle in the sundae glasses with chocolate sauce kept warm in the red chafing dish. After all this is "fun" valentines table....one meant to have dessert first and eat lots of candy at!
The ice cream cone topped dessert spoons are too cute as are the conversation heart straws. Pink lemonade in the red glasses through those straws should be fun too.
The centerpiece is a classic dollar store special. It always reminds me of Valentines Day parties in elementary school. Do you remember the ones....tissue covered decorated Valentine boxes and cupcakes and sugar cookies with red sugars? Wow, now I am craving lemonade and sugar cookies! I normally hang corrugated tissue hearts and cupids from the chandy but the new dinette set sits more into the room than our old set so we are waiting to have the chandy moved out further, so no hanging for this V-day. I miss that.
Okay.....Abra cadabra....table two. Very traditional all red and white and heart covered.
This table gives me a chance to use my square plates. Love them! I posted about white ones here, the red ones were a gift that Christmas as well. I use them constantly, never thought I would be able to use red plates nearly as often as I do. The small dessert plates are from Dollar Tree several years ago.
Hmmm....I think this table would be perfect for a breakfast of waffles with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
I am looking forward to cooking some special meals for these tables over the next few days. No matter the food served, it will be wonderful shared with my special valentines.
Thanks for stopping in.
