Then suddenly, it dawned on me. Why do I need to have specific Valentine's Day dishes in order to do a Valentine's Day tablescape? I can pull this off without them! The challenge was on and here is what I came up with.
I used my Pier 1 red salad plates that I've had for years. Cream dinner plates from Better Homes & Gardens (Walmart) last year. Heart boxes from Michaels. Cloth napkins from Bed, Bath & Beyond...a steal at $1.50 for 4, on clearance. Gold flatware is "borrowed" from my Mom. It's called Cellini Romanesque.
My Dee Foust Cupid from last year. I love this guy! Gold candleholders purchased quite a few years ago at Michaels.
