True Love Tablescape

I feel as though I haven't tablescaped in quite some time. 

When I entered the Dollar Tree crafting party, I promised a Valentine's Day tablescape with my craft.

 
I am having a grand old time with PicMonkey, that's for sure!
 
 
I'm always worried that I don't have heart shaped or Valentine's Day dishes to use for a tablescape.  This is the second time I've managed a Valentine's Day tablescape without them.  
 

 
Felt placemates from Christmas Tree Shop
Ivory dinner plates are Better Homes & Gardens from Walmart
Red salad plates from the Oneida Factory Outlet
Mixed flatware...the ivory came from Target awhile ago,  the red were an engagement gift some 20+ years ago
Ivory napkins from Bed, Bath & Beyond
I used clear napkin rings that I've probably had for 20 years and tied a red ribbon on them.  I added a silver glass heart ornament that I bought a few years ago at Target (on clearance after Christmas.)  Funny, I never used the hearts for Christmas.  I always use them for Valentine's Day instead.
 
 
 I do love those silver hearts!  I scattered the rest of them across the table runner.
 
 
In the above photo you can see that I used my Dollar Tree craft for my centerpiece.  My goodness that thing has gotten alot of use this year!  lol  I also used my chippy white & crystal candleholders.  They came from Michaels a few years back.  They've been used all over my house throughout the years.  They go so well with everything!
 

Wishing you a wonderful, love-filled day!

Absolutely adorable! I love how you pull it all together with "non-Valentine" items to create something that screams "Amore!" Great job.
Blessings,
Nici
P.s. Thanks for stopping by today and leaving a sweet note!

Gina - you are so creative that you did not need heart-shaped plates! What you did with those napkin rings was so smart! The table looks lovely - hope you and your family enjoy Valentine's Day.

Gail said...

Oh Gina, how sweet is that tablescape! I too love those little hearts.

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Jacqueline said...

I am loving your Pic Monkey too! What an opening shot! Yes, you don't need specialty items with red and white and a touch of silver hearts it couldnt be more perfect. I really AM loving your Pic Monkey. I haven't tried it yet, but that is just too fun!

I've noticed that the shops around here don't sell Valentine's Day stuff like they used to do. It's really odd, and I wonder if it's because of the economy. I've tried to find some small, cheap plates, but I've been unsuccessful.

I like your tablescape with the tiny hearts. I think it looks great!

Gina,

Your frugally done tablescape is awesome! Well done, ma'am!

I can't wait to get better and do a Valentine's tablescape- it's killing me not being able to do so!

kitty said...

You did a wonderful, creative table, Gina! I love the layers of dishes and the two different flatware colors. The napkin rings are so versatile and of course, your centerpiece is adorable!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Gina I love your tablescape! The hearts on the napkins are perfect. You really did a nice thrifty table! hugs, Linda

Alycia Nichols said...

Hello there, Miss Gina!!! VERY pretty table! I like Valentine's tables with just a hint of the day. I think I've only used heart-shaped plates once. Every once in awhile (like this year) I'll slip a heart in somewhere, but it's usually more about evoking romance and all that kissy-kissy feeling! :-) Like you, I'm going for more of a "feeling" than a look. The little heart ornaments are perfect for creating that feeling along with the other pretty elements assembled. Well done! Have a love-filled Valentine's Day!!!

Picmonkey is giving you a wonderful creativity in your photos. I love how you use so many lovely pieces in red and white for this pretty Valentine's tablescape. My favorite are the tiny silver hearts. Great job!

Gina,
Hi! This is truly a festive tablescape. You did a wonderful job with your center piece and loving the napkin holders too. The dangling hearts and red ribbons are very appealing.

Beautiful tablescape Gina! I love the hearts on the napkins. It's a 'Super Sweet' look!

Ellie VanCaster said...

How sweet and fun-Target has some amazing things after holidays that will cover many occasions-just love to do my winter walking there so I can check it all out-LOL

Marigene said...

Gina, what a beautiful table...love your centerpiece.

Tricia said...

I love the "fluffy" feel of your table, with the pretty centerpiece and the napkins tucked into the heart-embellished rings. No need for valentine-specific dishes!

Jann Olson said...

Gina, your tablescape is truly heart felt. I was thinking the same thing. That I needed to do a tablescape. Maybe next week. Love-ly! Where is it that you find the fun banners on pic monkey?
hugs,
Jann

Ana said...

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

It's all so pretty but the thing I noticed is how you mixed up your flatware. Love it!

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Great table. I feel the same about the hearts. Although, this year it will mainly be about bows.

Gypsy Heart said...

So, so pretty! I LOVE the silver hearts.
