Set Up for Valentine's Day Dinner with Friends

My friends voted unanimously, without me, to have a Valentine's party here at our house, lol. So, here I got busy setting up a romantic table in the dining room. I might have to add 2 more chairs because our group is growing.

 I am not sure where I found this hanging thing but I thought it would be perfect to hang from the chandelier. It looks sweet and romantic, doesn't it?
 And there is my centerpiece consisting of 2 Lladro figurines, a matte finished "Waltz Time" and their usual glossy finished "A Kiss to Remember". I added some crystal cupcakes and placed them under 3 miniature cloches. I found the cupcakes from TJ Maxx in Monroe, LA. and placed the heart John bought for me in Germany. I scattered little ceramic roses that I bought from Richard.
 Then at the last minute, I added this planter with red flowers that I just bought from Walmart. I think they are azaleas. I will plant them in the garden afterwards.

The side pieces!

 Cherub napkin holders.
 Red goblets and pink wine glasses.
 Red napkins and flatware

 I found these chocolate candy roses at Walmart. I thought they would be good party favors.
The dinnerware set is Bavarian Tirschenreuth china in "Rosedale" pattern.
White rose name plate holders

I also used ceramic roses I bought from Richard to scatter around the table and to hold place cards.

 Chocolate candy candle
 Cute loving cherubs next to white rose S & P shakers.

Bavarian China Tirschenreuth tea set

Chandy said...

Hi, Christine! I'm back! Or at least I'm trying to get back to blogging about my tables again. It's been nuts just the past year, but hopefully, I'll find more time this year. I'll try to play along next Thursday with my V-day table and a new one.

Your table is just so romantic and the pieces you chose are to melt for! Love it!


Ruthie Miller said...

Best, Ruthie from Lady B's Time for Tea
