Valentine's Table '09

I used my gold beaded place mats for this table. I have not used these as often as I thought I would. They are pretty formal and I am more into fun and whimsical tables.
Because I didn't want to hide the pretty placemat, I did not use a charger plate. I did a flower napkin fold to hold a pink rose candle.

The rose sits atop the napkin in a relish dish holder.

I bet you all have seen (and maybe own) one of these. I find the dishes work great for candle holders or dessert cups.



The centerpiece also has some "outside the box" items. I have placed a number of items atop a Jeannette depression era Crystal Harp cake stand with gold trim.
The doves were part of a wedding gift. A pearl necklace drapes down each side. The white lace hearts serve to hold the necklaces in place. I have just used a couple of pins to secure them.

In front of the doves I have two pink necklaces that I love.




On the back side I have used a large gold earring to cover the necklace clasp.

I have pierced ears so I would never wear this earring. I think it's quite beautiful, though, and I am happy to get to enjoy it in a different manner.




Since it's Valentine's Day I have used my LOVE candles in front of the centerpiece.


I have used red, pink and gold glasses.


The large red wine glass has a little heart attached with wire to its stem.


The dessert plate is a glass heart on top of a gold plate. The gold plate was really used just to pull in one more item in the liqueur glass color.


Since the liqueur bottles were so pretty they were also used as table decoration.


Again the chair backs were decorated. I just finished making two quilt blocks with a rose in the center, so I took the opportunity to use them on the two host chairs.
Be sure to do something special for your Valentine this year.
