I am so excited about Valentine's day this year, Mr. C. and I will be staying at home enjoying a romantic dinner in front of the fireplace. Warm and intimate is what we want...that restaurants just don't provide. I love to cook, so it's also my way of showing love for him by preparing our meal.
I don't know if you remember my friend Pat, she's a great "picker". So many treasures I've bought from her, both my gate leg tables, linens, cake trays etc
. The vintage rose tablecloth was a treasure for $10.
Almost everything on our table are thrift store or garage sale finds. The vintage cutting boards, candlesticks, dishes, cups, chargers, silverware, creamer and red glasses and planter were!
The Rose Planter is Lefton found at a local thrift store a few years back, the ironstone creamer is a recent find from GW (.49), and I layered a Laura Ashley Heart I made with a thrift store doily.
Our love how our place setting turned out! So pretty...
Each table setting started with a rattan charger wrapped with red upholstery jute, on top a Knowles Tea-Rose, X=2240-0 plate.
On top another pretty rose plate, I think it Knowles too, but the label is hard to read...
Again topped with another pretty Rose plate. There are no markings and I found a set of six at a garage sale.
I am a tea drinker, never had a cup of coffee in my life. This pretty rose tea cup was made in Japan and found at Saver's.
Mr. Charmer loves his coffee and this rose cup (a set of two) was a great garage sale find.
At each place setting a rose stem was placed in side a small candle holder. The red glasses were found at GW, I started out buying six! By the time I got to the car I had 5, when I headed to our front door I dropped a bag and broke three more. Now there are only two! Perfect!
I moved the porcelain flower lamp over from the sitting area and I liked how it fit right in. In the background are our burlap wreath curtains I made and dropped them to let the gorgeous sun in .
This is where I'll be sitting, in my comfy wicker chair I found at GW a few weeks back and...
Mr. C will be sitting right across from me here. The sun was really out full and bright today and it felt so warm as it glowed through the windows.
Where ever your sitting I hope you are with someone who makes you feel loved.
I know I will be... and I am so lucky sitting at our Romantic Rose Tablescape For Two with Mr. Charmer!
