Hearts and Love (T)

You'll find plenty of hearts in this tablescape!   My romantic table grew from two to four. 
A couple we are dining with are recently engaged and I felt it was a perfect chance to share some Valentine's romance with them!

 The small heart shaped love sign was my inspiration for the color palette I chose for my 
Hearts and Love tablescape.  

The little mini pails with hearts were white and I sprayed them in the colors called Pistachio Green and Ballet Slipper Pink.  They could hold candies but I chose to put tea lights in them.

I put together two bouquets I found at the store to get the colors I wanted.  The pink alstroemeria has opened up beautifully since I first got them.  

There are white lilies that still haven't opened but that's okay all in good time!

The dishes are from Lenox (French Perle in Pistachio) and Pottery Barn.  
Gold became my other go to color since that was also part of the inspiration love sign.

These square mats came from ZGallerie a long time ago and they have little flecks that sparkle like diamonds in them.  The square floral topper came from Boscov's a while back.  Napkins from Pier  1.  I rolled them to show off the lace edge and not to be too feminine for the guys.

Let's turn up the romance meter...

A little bubbly if you like!  

The stemware with hearts came from T.J.Maxx several years ago.

With this lighting the diamond like glitter shows up nicely here on the place mats.

The mercury glass vase is from Pier 1- it's actually an apothecary jar and comes with a lid.  The little glass tea light holders came from Nell Hill's back when there was an on-line store to shop at.  

I'm part of the Romantic Table blog hop this week.  There is a list of everyone that participated below.  Please enjoy all of them!

  17. I loved seeing your table transition from day to night, and it really was romantic with all the candlelight at night, which I know can be difficult to photograph. The pinks, golds, and crystal all complimented one another, and the fresh flowers were so pretty.
