The L❤️️VEliest holiday of the year deserves a beautiful table setting for the ones you love. Even if it's just for you. 

Gather pretty pieces you have - mixed up vintage china from your grandmother; linens, lace, and pink organza napkins; Valentine candy heart boxes covered in pretty paper and vintage velvet millinery filled with treasures and treats...

Here are three different ideas anyone can do - glamorous, traditional, and whimsical - be adventurous and creative!
There are no rules.
A glamorous and a sexy styled table for two...

Mix up textures and layers - a gilded twig placemat, gold leaf charger, fine china, a playful putti (and some cheeky cheeks), and a bursting red heart tied with a golden and silky satin bow.  

A love letter.

Sip something sweet from a ruby red Italian wine goblet.

It's all about theatre - the whimsical cupid and a paper bouquet of musical hearts add to the ambience.  A lace napkin is tied up with a red beaded tassel and ruby heart and rhinestone clip.  
For your little loves...have a little fun with a non-traditional color scheme.

Turquoise and red! What better whimsical and retro color combination for Valentine's Day!

Glittered paper hearts scattered on the table.

Italian (of course) scallopped plates are layered on floral metal chargers. A vibrant red floral napkin is a beautiful and fun contrast to the turquoise woven placemat. Tie it up with a ribbon to a voluptuous red felt rose and you have a napkin ring!

Red and white paper straws with hearts and stripes; Valentine boxes filled with who-knows-what; and the most important of all - a book, A Token of Friendship, to remind all of us to love one another and be kind.
So, you want a pink party for your best friends...

Set it up with PINK!

Vintage Valentines.

Layers of Battenberg lace, mixed with aluminum lace chargers, a handmade book for love notes, vintage Haviland china, a box of pink champagne truffles, and sweet surprises tucked away in a ruffled heart box.
Valentine's Day has become quite commercial over the years, but remains a special day in my heart. Just because.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Enjoy a L❤️️VE day, every day...and set a beautiful table, for any reason.
