Inspired by my new favorite move Julie and Julia, we'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.
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.
