Romantic Confectionery Cloche Valentine's Table

I wrapped together a bit of romance and some confectionery goodies in this Valentine's Day tablescape.
 I used some cloche's to display some of my elements.

I reused the plastic wrapper that the flowers came in. I cut and arranged the flowers, then I cut off several inches from the bottom of the bag, wrapped it around the flowers and lowered it into the vase. This way it hides the stems and added some color!
 Another confection was added with that big heart shaped cookie!
Dan and I like a little sweet something after we eat so we each have a personal cupcake to satisfy our sugar tooth! 
These cute little personal sized cloche's come in 
handy for desserts!

 My Mikasa stemware works it way in nicely.  

I fell in love with these Ralph Lauren plates. Both came from T.J. Maxx about a year apart. The red chargers were purchased for Christmas but work well for Valentine's Day too.  I used three napkin rings to pop some more red in and to highlight the silver!

  We like some bubbly but not too much, so I was delighted when I found these half sized Champagne bottles.  

The flatware has a tailored look that pairs well with the black and white Ralph Lauren plate and contrasts nicely against the red runner.

I didn't add any chocolates (just yet) because Dan usually buys me some! I used inexpensive flowers just in case someone brings home some roses!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm joining the following parties

  1. What a pretty tablescape, Liz! Love the cloches. How original! The cupcakes look good too. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Beautiful table, Liz. I like the smaller splits of champagne, too. xo

  3. Very pretty Liz. Love that you have several cloches to share with us.The cupcake is so cute under the cloche. Happy Valentine's Day.

  4. Lovely table Liz. Those desserts look so good. I can't wait to get off this diet.
    Love the contrast of the black and white with the added red.

  5. Liz, You set a very romantic table and I am in love with thse black/white plates on the red chargers. I never think to look for half size bottles of wine- they are so much more practical. Hope you get your candy and roses! :-)

  6. I love your beautiful tablescape Liz. I like your idea of using the bag in the vase to add color. Those black and white plates are gorgeous and I love the cupcakes under the cloches! Great Valentine's Day post!
    Happy Valentine's Day.

  7. Such a sweet Valentine's Day table...I love the personal cloches. I would love to have a few of these. By the way I love "My Funny Valentine". I love all the old standards. I should have been born in a different era...my radio is always tuned to the Sinatra XM station.

  8. So pretty for Valentine's Day! I could use a bite of the cupcake right now.

  9. Beautiful Liz! The wine under glass is so cute!

  10. Liz,
    I adore the sweetness of this Valentine Day Tablescape!

    Great idea to use the cello paper to hide the stems!!!
    Loveevery element from your chargers, dinnerware, stemware, flatware and napkin holders!!!

  11. Lovely, Priceless and Oh So Elegant Tablescape!
    You're redeaming xoxo and Valentine's Hearts. Yes, you are!
    Happy Valentine's Dear Liz! May Love be a constant staple in your Life.

    I so wish I'd found cloches so easily in my country :(... I could go overboard with them because I like it so much... almost to a point of obssession. Those individual cloches make me swoon. Thank you so much for sharing!

  12. Lis, what a beautiful tablescape! The cloches are just perfect! Happy Valentine's Day!

  13. Wow, this is such a lovely and romantic tablescape for two. Gorgeous. I love your cloches and the champagne under a cloche is such a creative idea. Fun, fun, fun. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  14. Liz, this is just lovely and that last photo should be in a magazine! I love the way you hid the stems on the flowers - that is always a problem and you have solved it! Cute idea for the napkin rings and those Ralph Lauren plates are great - I have some similar ones made by another company. Hope you have a great day on Thursday and I hope you get those chocolates and roses!!

  15. What a beautiful table you have set! I love the little cloches with desserts under them. I'm your newest GFC follower.

I appreciate your visit and your kind words. I hope you'll visit again soon and maybe even follow me back. Have a lovely week!

  16. I will ALWAYS gladly finish off any Veuve Clicquot you might have left over!!!!!! That is my favorite bubbly!!! I was first introduced to it about 18 years ago, and it is SO nice!!! This is really pretty, Miss Liz! I really like the black in there to break up the red & white & pink. It gives it all a very sophisticated flair! I do hope that "someone" brings home roses for you and that you have the best Valentine's Day ever!!! Don't O.D. on kisses!!! (Either kind...foil-covered chocolate or lips!)

  17. I adore this table dear Liz..it is gorgeous and the elments you chose for inside the cloches are fabulous! Hope your family had a wonderful birthday too. The RL plates got me swooning!
