ROSES ARE RED


Chocolate truffles
&


a silver tray of colorful grapes


a wee starfish caught in a
net of *love*


A few soft white candles cast a warm glow


flickering with the light breeze
on a tray atop a vintage step ladder


A favorite vintage pink tablecloth with bursts of red roses is
the perfect choice for a sweet table


Mixed with vintage flea find aqua plates & red transferware
set atop scrolling iron chargers.
(the sweet little 'chocolates' are candles from the $ store)


A little antique table is set for a sweet garden dinner
beneath the pergola in the backyard.


The gauzy white fabric panels pulled closed to
envelope the outdoor room


A large iron chandelier lights the outdoor room~
while the sun setting in the distance casts a
warm glow through the trees in early evening


A lovely winters garden setting


for good food... good friends...


for a sweet inspired dinner


&
*maybe*


just a few kisses from your Valentine.

  3. Courtney...this is my favorite post EVER! How gorgeous...and outside! How lucky are you to be able to eat outside in February. This post looks like a dream. I can rarely find anything nice at our local dollar store. The candles are so cute! I love red transfer ware. I would love to collect it. Your vignette is stunning....absolutely stunning! *le sigh*

    Have a Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow!

  4. What a gorgeous table! I love all the wonderful and romantic details. I love the iron chargers, the silver basket and cups and the tablecloth epecially!
    I'm also jealous of being able to have a Valentine's Day dinner OUTSIDE! We'd never be able to have anything outdoors in February here in Wisconsin! ;-)

  29. Dear Courtney,
    what a charming Valentine's table! I am especially fond of the TRUFFLE!!! Yes, a chocoholic, I'm afraid.

    But I also love the grapes in the silver -- so pretty.

    Thank you for your kind words of sympathy on the loss of my father earlier this month; they were much appreciated.

    Best wishes,
    Cass
