Valentine's Tablescape (No. 2)

Confession time - Pat came up with two Valentine tablescapes last week, and my favorite was the one we posted. However, her favorite was the table that showed beautiful vintage American Sweetheart Monax Depression glass plates and white Portieux glassware. So, to make things fair, I decided to post that table this week. Yes, the color theme is red and white (like last week's post), but the table is definitely different.
Over view of the table

Close up of the place setting

Pat used white Portieux water and wine goblets accented with a red water/wine glass

White napkin with a white chiffon overlay wrapped in a silver napkin ring with a rose and hearts
American Sweetheart Monax sherbet on a Monax Bread and Butter plate

The delicate flatware consists of a Grille knife and Grille fork

Silverplated flatware is Plantation by Oneida

The beaded heart shaped placemat was purchased years ago for a Betty Boop dinner party

Next layer is an American Sweetheart dinner plate. This pattern has a center motif. (Other American Sweetheart Monax dinner plates have a smooth center.)

The red Hocking dinner plate is next.

Pat topped the dinner plate with an American Sweetheart Monax salad plate

Finally the napkin placed at an angle on the plate

Pat used heart shaped votive holders with red votives around the table

These gorgeous candle holders were purchased at a local antique store

You can see the detail on the silver plated napkin ring

Yes, too much salt is bad for you but the shakers look great on the table

Instead of a typical flower centerpiece, Pat made a heart "arrangement"

One last look from the other end of the table

  1. It looks so beautiful! What a wonderful table for Valentine's Day!

    Thank you so much for linking to Let's Dish!

  2. This table is very pretty. Everything looks so elegant and well put together, so I know your guests loved it. Thanks for sharing on Kathleen's party so I could find you.

  3. Oh i love this table too. I loved last week's and this week is just as magnificent. I do love those dishes and am not familiar with them at all. Just gorgeous! xo marlis

  4. I love them both! Either one would be a pleasure to sit at. Last week's red salad plates really enchanted me but I love the beaded placemats and the stunning centerpiece this week. How fun to see both creations.

  5. Seriously - a red beaded heart-shaped placemat??? That may be the prettiest thing I have ever seem! Love all the red and white, especially the centerpiece. What a great alternative to fresh flowers!

  6. This is one of my favorite tables for Valentine's Day...absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
