Tablescape Thursday/Pink Saturday -- Pink Valentine's Table

This post is doing double duty today as both Tablescape Thursday and Pink Saturday.

This Sunday is Valentine's Day, a day when you should spoil your special someone (if you have someone! If not, spoil yourself.) Here's a pic of my current background on my desktop.

As an avid Goodwill shopper, I am always on the lookout for the perfect plate with which to do a tablesetting. I found some sweet plates with pink roses. They are edged in silver so I added silver chargers and a silver sugar and creamer set.

The table was set with a pink tablecloth layered over a white one. The placemats are the ones I have used again and again that I found in a vintage store.

Candlelight is always romantic, so I wanted to show the table in the dark with candles aglow.

Here is a closer view of the table setting. Forgot to add that the pink goblets are from Goodwill for less than a dollar. The plates were fifty-five cents each. The chargers were marked way down at Dollar General for about sixty-six cents. The pink heart candles were only thirty-five cents each from GW. The candlestick was less than a dollar at GW. The sugar and creamer were a dollar each from GW.

Here you can see the pink rose in detail. I thought these were just the prettiest and most romantic plates! I had never thought to use pink and silver together, but they sure do fit together...just like Valentine sweethearts!

The candles were so pretty light and dark settings...

...and even unlit.

I added my painted stand and porcelain pink rose.

Here is a close up of the wine goblet. I love the pink shades. So perfect for Valentine's Day!

Of course, a romantic dinner would not be complete without a bottle of wine. This is a bottle of Strawberry Patch dessert wine from a local winery. I've drank it before and it's very yummy.

I won't be celebrating Valentine's Day with a special someone, but do plan to create another tablescape geared toward my children who are my very heart! I'll post that next week.

Happy tablescaping and enjoying all things pink! May you have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

The white with the silver chargers looks very classic and romantic!~ I see a lot of old RmSers on here, I was on there for about a year, but I think ya'll must have been gone by the time I got there...seems to run it's cycle and then everyone goes on to blogging for their creative outlet!~ That is what I did and I love it!!~
