Love is in the Air or on the Table!

Welcome to the first Tablescape Thursday! Thanks to Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for hosting this. You should visit her blog and view her romantic tablescape and also check out everybody else's who are participating. I was going to wait until next week to post this but since it's already set up, I might as well post it now. Besides, I might get busy next week to prepare for a formal mardi gras party we are attending.
For this set up, I chose a red tablecloth and a white lace runner. I found the wooden roses at dollar tree and I thought they were unusual and I like unusual things.
For a centerpiece, I used a little ceramic box, not really sure what it is used for but I thought the color will work, I added the roses and found a little planter with a cherub on either side, lined it with a napkin with a heart and placed the box with roses in there. I thought it made an interesting layer. I used a crystal tumbler and a wine stemware with a red heart in it. I found it at Walgreens. Do you see the squiggly stem? I also added block letters spelled "True Love" and a cherub sitting on the letters spelled "LOVE". Do you think I have enough love on this table? LOL!
I lined the beaded basket with a red paper heart doily and I plan to put some macaroons in there, which are my hubby's favorites.
I found this crystal candlestick holder from Home Goods store in Pensacola last weekend. I searched and searched for another one but couldn't find any. It was on sale for $5 so I bought it anyway.
I used a red heart placemat, my lace plate charger, Princess House Pavilion dinner plate and a Valentine's salad plate I found at TJ Maxx for $2.99.
just another view
and another
It is chilly tonight so I burned wood in the fireplace.
I hope you enjoyed my Valentine's table for 2. We will just use it for lunch on Valentine's Day because we will be going to a mardi gras ball at night. Thanks for coming. I am off to see the other tablescapes now.
Thanks again, Susan, for hosting this fun event!
