Tablescape Thursday and Cindy's Centerpiece Party!
I am participating in Tablescape Thursday courtesy of Susan from Between Naps on the Porch. Go check out her blog for tons of beautiful tablescapes today! Also, I hope this works well for Cindy's Centerpiece Party, too!
I am playing with tablescapes for Valentine's Day. I really enjoyed putting together this one. I love how things mix and match. It really does create an interesting table when you choose varying patterns and colors.
The crocheted piece was made by my mother in law, Irene. She can make anything with a crochet hook. I have several pieces and you will be seeing them in the future!
The plates are chef grade plain white dishes from Pier One. The red salad plates are also from Pier One. The floral plates are from Corelle. I love this simple little plates. The heart dishes are Le Creuset.
I have a collection of bells that got started at our wedding. Someone gave us a lovely deep blue crystal dinner bell and when people saw that, they assumed I collected bells. So for the past 30+ years, I find myself getting a bell from time to time. I have never had much use for them but I find they are coming in quite handy for TableScape Tuesday! This is a Lenox bell.
