An Inspired Valentine's Day Celebration- Tablescape Thursday

Inspired by my new favorite move Julie and Juliawe've time traveled  to a 1950's Valentine's Dinner party for six at The Child's Paris flat.  Although the setting itself is simple and uncomplicated, it's warm, fun and made a fabulous setting in my own dining room.  Thanks again to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting us for today's Tablescape Thursday. 

I began with my grandmother's white lace tablecloth over a plain hotel cloth.


Handmade construction paper hearts, place cards and decorative chain garland add to the charm and nostalgia.        

Long stem red roses in a turquoise clay vase and taper candles completes this lovely table.
Whether you're inviting five friends over for a girls night or hosting couples to celebrate your great love for each other - like Julia and Paul - this tablescape is just the right blend of whimsy and elegance to capture the true spirit of Valentine's Day.

  2. I love the blue and white with the little pop of red. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is so pretty -- I loved that movie -- wasn't it fun when they were all sitting around the table with those big old heaarts pinned to their shirts? It just looked like the most fun -- and your tablesetting captures the mood too!
