and a Valentine’s Tablescape Hop!

Sometimes I wonder where I am going to come up something unique for a holiday table. This year the answer was to get out of my home and go shopping.
I found these gold metal envelopes at Hobby Lobby. These immediately brought up memories of childhood valentines, tucked into those little paper envelopes.
I was lucky to buy the last four of these at my Hobby Lobby. If you can’t find these, you could get these galvanized ones from Amazon. They are a little larger than mine, but would work the same way. These can be painted any color, including a pretty pastel pink!
I thought I would just tuck a pink heart note in each of the envelopes but decided they needed more. I wrote a personal note in each of the envelopes, including mine, about what I love about that person.
As I proceeded with my Valentine tablescape, I realized, that in addition to the notes, each envelope needed a beautiful little bouquet. The envelope and the flowers were gifted to each guest to take home.
The plate stack:
This close up shows the different textures and colors of my plate stack.
My stack is pretty simple, but involved tiny peeks of each layer. Embellished white chargers topped simple gold chargers. Those were topped with gold dinner plates, further topped with pink floral dinner plates.
Stemware is Bohemian crystal that my husband bought before we were even married! I rarely use this, but I love the delicate pattern on it!
The darker ruffled napkin is from Pier One. The outer pink napkins are ones I have had on hand for years!
A pair of pink napkins of different shades of pin were tied with a small pink ribbon. This kind of reminds me of Steel Magnolias where the bride’s colors were “blush and bashful”! Did you know I once played Truvy in Steel Magnolias on stage?
Grocery store roses in shades of pink pulled together my romantic Valentine tablescape. I gathered a few blooms in small vases to scatter down the middle of the table. The West Elm flatware is brushed gold. Sadly they don’t carry this style any longer.
Inviting loved ones to sit at a pretty Valentine tablescape is a wonderful way to celebrate a special day!
