Won't you Be Mine!
 I thought I'd show my table in stages as I built it...

I came across these at Home Goods on mark down.  The starry dishes are by Sara Miller London, Portmeirion Celestial Collection.  The glittery gold chargers were part of a set of 4

The "Love" dishes came from Hobby Lobby.  I accented them with a chocolate heart!  The gold rimmed stemware were also from Home Goods.  I borrowed the center glass tray from  under my cloche nearby.  My theme quickly became gold and red!

Then I brought in my "Red Velvet" Amaryllis that I've been growing for the last month for my centerpiece.
I embellished the pot with moss, three hearts on sticks and a garland made of hearts.

 I had this pink rose accented pottery piece for some time.  Turns out it was just the right size for the amaryllis. 

Red Velvet amaryllis is a very large and truly red flower.  Here it is nearly all opened up.

 And now it's in full bloom!  Just as gorgeous as a red rose!

These are candles accented with heart graphics from Pier 1 with "Pink Champagne" as their scent.  The crystal candlesticks are also from Pier 1.

 The gold and white striped candles were part of a boxed set I picked up at TJMaxx a while back.

I was going for a bit of an elegant with a flair of whimsy!

Some nighttime photos!

Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!
