Romantic Tablescape For Two
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 is thrift store or garage sale finds. The vintage cutting boards, shabby candlesticks, dishes, cups, chargers, silverware, creamer and red wine glasses and planter were!
The Lefton Rose Planter found at a local thrift store a few years back and the ironstone creamer a recent find from GW (.49). Then a Laura Ashley Heart 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 teacup was made in Japan and found at Savers.
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 placed inside 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 only 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. The sun was really out full and bright today and it felt so warm glowing through the windows and casting shadows across the table.
Where ever you’re sitting I hope you’re with someone who makes you feel loved.
I know I will be and I’m so lucky sitting at our Romantic Tablescape For Two with Mr. C!
