Valentine Luncheon with the Girls!

May I ask you all a favor? Can you please help my granddaughter AJ get a chance to win a private performance with Ed Sheeran, just by clicking on this link? Thank you very much.
 
Now on to my tablescape.
 
This is my third Valentine's table for this year but I promise it will be the last, at least for 2013. I had a luncheon for my girl friends here the day after Valentine's Day so I decided to do another one with that theme. After all, I really love my friends!
 This is my 3rd Valentine's table this year but this is also the third one that I used a stored dinnerware for the first time for this occasion. I think I will try to do that more this year cause I have so many sets that has been kept for so long that I have not used at all.

 These is my Limoges Wm. Guerin & Co. dinnerware set. I bought them from Ebay while searching for a set to complete my Hammersley's Bird of Paradise set, cause I only have a setting for 4 but I could not find any that is affordable. Then I saw a setting of 10 that they were selling on this Limoges set. I thought they will go well together so I bought them.
The small bowl on the left below is Hammersley and the one on the right is Limoges. Don't they look very similar? The Hammersley has a blue edge with 12 sides though, but I think they are still mixable.
I love the bird of paradise. Again, I used the white pierced tin plate chargers cause I think they look so well for a Valentine table. They even have some piercings that are heart shaped.
 For the centerpiece, I borrowed 2 pots with silk flowers from the formal living room and again used the cardinal S & P shakers and added a red votive candle.
 I thought the ruffled crocheted doily made it look more romantic.
 Etched stemware I got from an estate sale, 6 for $8.00
 Pierced flatware. I have had them for a while but I cannot remember where I bought them from. Only the knives aren't pierced.
 I alternated 2 types of napkin rings.

 I added an egg shaped Hammersley's Bird of Paradise box.

 The girls all brought some food too so we had a feast.
 Riza, Noemie and Ryzlyne. Riza is from out of town so we try to get together when she gets in town, this time for Ryzlyne's dental appt.
 I also alternated 2 types of placemats, a pink heart shaped one and  round red ones with pierced hearts on the edges.
 Our dessert table
We had Whittard of Chelsea instant tea with lychee and mango flavor. The tea set is Hammersley's Bird of paradise.

But the cups and saucers are Limoges Wm Guerin and Co. See how they blend together? The birds are just positioned differently.
 After eating, we were all happy and contented:-)

 After lunch, Riza and Noemie went to the secret garden to plant the plantings that Riza dug out of her yard. See why I love my friends so much? They bring me stuff and then they even do the work themselves too, lol.
Thank you girls for joining me and thanks to all for stopping by!
I am also very thankful to the hostesses of the following memes that I am joining.
