Red Polka Dot Valentine Table

Hello, Bloggy friends, and Happy Valentine's Day early. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting our party again, so click on her link to see more beauties.
First, I want to show you my vintage, red, metal table. I just love it, and it's working really good today for my Valentine's tablescape. :)

The table is set for two in the sun room.

Red flatware from BB&B goes nicely with my red and white theme. I got the red heart plates recently at Cracker Barrel. They were my inspiration for my polka dot theme today.



I didn't have any red and white napkins, so I just used this ribbon I had to trim them up.




I loved these fabric roses (also from Cracker Barrel)




Red pitcher from TJ Maxx recently.






Also found this pretty, white pitcher from the Maxx.



Julia and Dudley Target wanted to be in this tablescape, but I wanted to used my doves.
(I hope they're not too mad! hehehehehe)




Dove's eye view.



Evening has come. Time for the two "Kisses" candles to be lit.
Thanks for stopping by. I love having you visit me!

I loved your tablescape and what I saw so I stayed awhile. Enjoyed the game of Clue. What a collection you have. I especially liked the last photo of your grand daughter. BTW I have the Daisy Sculptured dishes too! I loved your visit your home is so pretty.
Thanks for inviting us in.
I hope your Friday is Blessed,

Lady Katherine said...

D I love the polka dots! I adore the table, one day I going to have one! I just got to find them something to replace theirs and its mine. lol Love the setting! Love your new blog look. Next time you know you are coming down, we should go shopping together, since we love the same places and your only 50 min from my home. HV Going to snow 5-7 inches so keep warm.

I was eyeing those red polka dot mugs in TJ Maxx tonight. Cute table. Love those red fabric roses. My CB didn't have those. :(

Patriotic Mom said...

I really love this! I was just at Cracker Barrel last night. I know I should've bought those heart plates! I don't remember the flowers in red. They are cute though. I was wondering how I could make them. Thanks for sharing the love, Joan @Americana By Candlelight.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

All you needed to show was the table! Fabulous...but then you made everything so vintage and pretty looking...wonderful!

Scribbler said...

Thanks for visiting my little blog and your kind words.

Your Valentine table is just too cute! I have some of the polka dot ribbon, and I might just trim some napkins with it, now that I have seen yours! You know -- I forget that Cracker Barrel has such nifty little items like those dotty little heart plates. We do have one nearby, but we just don't eat out that often, so I am always astonished at what I see in the blogs that was found at CB.

Your table setting is wonderful! The polka dot roses are adorable and the mixture of prints work well!!! You REALLY out did yourself. I think you should send the images to a publication so they can print it for next years Valentine's day issue!
