This Valentine’s tablescape was a combination of old and new. It has my mother’s water glasses, my grandmother’s dishes, and some antique Ruby dessert cups!
This table setting is a combination of old and new. The charger came from Hobby Lobby, the plates were my grandmother’s that she bought from Strawbridge and Clothier (those of you who are from the Philadelphia area will remember that store.) The Ruby dessert cups I picked up at a local antique store. The candy bowls are made from peppermints melted into bowls for a touch of whimsy, and have red M & M’s in them.
This view of the table from the other end shows a clearer view of the candy dishes with M&M’s. The napkin rings are actually shower curtain rings upcycled to napkin rings! The taper candles have a little sheen to them which add an elegance to the table.
This view of the table shows the combinations of red and white which celebrate Valentine’s Day colors and themes!
