Girling It Up For Valentine's Day (T)

I wanted to do something real girlish- lots of pink, roses and lace.

The tablecloth is Lenox, several years ago.

 I got the heart placemats from Boscov's a few years ago.  The dishes are Ralph Lauren, Sophia.

 The napkin are from Pier 1 and have two napkin rings on them.  I believe both sets of napkin rings also came from Pier 1.

 The cupcakes are salt and pepper shakers from Cracker Barrel this year.  I've had the sign for several years but never used it.  I was determined this time to find a way!

 The cups are also from Cracker Barrel this year and have XOXO painted in gold inside the cup.  They had a creamy white cup too but I decided pink is rare to find so I'd go with that color.

 These dessert dishes were given to me by my Mom in the 90's.  I saw them in a Ross-Simons catalog and decided I wanted them for my birthday.  They are hand made from Germany and have little roses etched on the rim.  I used mirrors too for some extra glam!

 This bud vase got transformed into a candy dish. There's a little tiny hole on upper part of the heart where I added food coloring and water so it would show better. 

 I put together the red roses and baby's breath and surrounded the stems with three big leaves.

Spotted this cute heart shaped wreath at Michael's.  I used an acrylic stand to display it.

Wishing you a very
Happy Valentine's Day!
