Valentine’s Day Tablescape

Valentine’s Day table

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!

Table setting

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.

View of the opposite end of the table

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.

Bird’s eye view of the table

This view of the table shows the combinations of red and white which celebrate Valentine’s Day colors and themes!

Thanksgiving Table 2020

The leaves here are just finished falling, so I thought they would be a nice touch to add to this tablescape.

Place setting with a beautiful copper gilded charger.

The plates are from Hobby Lobby and are on a beautiful charger from Target. The napkins are doubled up with a plaid from Walmart and a nutmeg from World Market. I love plaid during this time of year and it was a bargain find to get these nutmeg ones to match my plaid!

Centerpiece with real leaves and table scatter

The centerpiece has these beautiful red/brown/caramel candles with real pressed leaves and table scatter leaves as well.

We are back to school as crazy as this year has been, this is still one of my favorite tablescapes!

Complete with pencils and chalk boards!
The little red school house in the centerpiece is a remembrance of the good ‘ole days!
Apples make this centerpiece complete as a proverbial part of school nostalgia
These old books are from a collection I have of vintage books including

Fall Tablescape 2020

Fall is early this year with crisp mornings and warm afternoons. This change in weather prompted me to do an early Fall Tablescape. There will be more to come! I love the warm colors of fall and the bright leaves on the trees. Enjoy this tablescape to start off your Fall decor!

A view from above

This view from above is a perfect meld of all the fall colors thanks to the beautiful zinnias from our local farmer’s market.

Embroidered Leaf Napkins

The place setting has an embroidered napkin (I got a set of 4 at a garage sale – great find!) that continues the fall leaf theme, and fits beautifully with the salad plate fall leaves tree.

Leaf imprinted water goblets

These water goblets were a great find at the Dollar store. They fit perfectly with the theme of the table.

Leaves, birch candles and pumpkins add to the centerpiece collage

The centerpiece is the focus of the tablescape with it’s fall leaves encircling the the beautiful bouquet of zinnias! The pumpkins and birch candles add a nice touch to the display.
