Valentine's Day With a Twist

Like a lot of tablescape bloggers, we are posting a Valentine's Day table this week. Of course, Pat had to do it with a twist - she used black as the accent color and very few valentines.....
Over view of the table

The place setting

Flatware is "April" by Wm Rogers & Son

Pat mixed the old with the new - "Pebble Leaf" frosted plates by Indiana Glass Company (over 50 years old) and red Baroque style chargers from Pier 1

I hate to photograph always looks dusty, but I promise - it is squeaky clean. It's Black "Mt Pleasant" depression glass (1925 through 1934) from L.E. Smith Glass Company
