 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.Vases of pink roses on a tabletop

The inspiration:

A plate stack with a gold metal envelope on it

I found these gold metal envelopes at Hobby Lobby.  These immediately brought up memories of childhood valentines, tucked into those little paper envelopes. Galvanized metal envelope

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.  Valentine plate stack with a gold envelope filled with pink roses

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:

Floral plate, gold plates, white charger plates, gold charger plates and pink napkins

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.

The stemware:

Delicate stemware with pink roses in vases behind them.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 napkins:

Two toned pink napkins tied with a pink ribbon and pink roses.

The darker ruffled napkin is from Pier One.  The outer pink napkins are ones I have had on hand for years!

Two pink napkins tied with a pink ribbon.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?

The results:

Vases of pink roses on a table along with a pretty valentine's place setting on a valentine tablescape

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.  Valentine tablescape featuring pink roses

Inviting loved ones to sit at a pretty Valentine tablescape is a wonderful way to celebrate a special day!

Now, it’s time for some more Valentine table inspiration!

Your idea of having all the blog posts on the same day is marvelous, I’ve been able to read each and every one. That wouldn’t have happened if they were posted on different days.
    All your blogger participates are so creative and talented, all in their own unique way and I enjoyed all the Valentine loveliness. Thanks so much for hosting this.
