This year I'm up for any excuse to set the mood and get creative, it may be only planning a table but if it makes Valentines a bit more fun why not, so I thought I would go for a full on classic romantic style valentines table setting , I hope it inspires you to create something of your own of course using vintage !
First I started with an antique white linen rose embroidered tablecloth just gorgeous, with some linen scallop edge napkins, then some burgundy and gold bordered vintage dinner plates and some vintage Japanese desert plates in burgundy gold and white.
The roses I mixed classic red with deep pink and burgundy tea roses which gave the look I wanted, in 2 vases plus a bud vase to give them a more casual eclectic look .
For the glassware some vintage Venetian cranberry and gold glass tumblers and crystal wine glasses, I got out some silverware........why not ? I've used it a lot this year . Then most importantly for the candlelight I mixed white tapers in Venetian glass candlesticks with votives in white porcelain pots.
Lastly I set aside an espresso set and some chocolates for dessert .
