Valentine's Day Table

We don't always set a yearly Valentine's Day tablescape for the blog, but like me, Pat was ready to do anything but more Winter tables. With another storm set to hit this afternoon, I thought I better get a few words down before the power goes out again......Here's what she came up with:
Definitely not frilly or fancy, this week's table is sleek and simple

Flatware is Kate Spade's "All in Good Taste." I have to admit that when we first got this flatware, I was really disappointed with it - it is quite lightweight. But the more we use it, I have come to love the versatility of the style.

Pat used a black Fiesta(ware) Luncheon plate

To add more color and change things up a bit, Pat used two placemats turning one around

From the other end of the table
Where it came from:
Black and Red Placemats - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond several years ago
Black Charger - "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa from Replacements and eBay
White Dinner Plate - "Everyday" by Food Network from Kohl's four years ago
Luncheon Plate - "Black" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Macy's
Bread/Butter Plate - "Black" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Replacements
Flatware - "All in Good Taste" by Kate Spade from Wayfair
Glassware - "Midnight Black" by Artland Glass from Target and Replacements
Black and Red Vases - from our collection
Candles, Silk Flowers, Valentines - from Michael's

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. Just lovely; the color combination is striking! What a good idea to layer the placemats like that: I may just try that sometime! Thanks for sharing, Ladies. A stunning Valentine's table! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  2. Gorgeous tablescape for Valentine's Day. Thank yo for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party. It's great having you.

  3. Lots of drama with your beautiful Valentine's table. Nice change to see the black and reds together. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love the sharpness of your table. The daisies are the perfect pop against the red and black. Using double place mats is a wonderful trick that looks stunning on your table! Happy Valentine's!

  5. This table grabbed my eye, I think it was the use of all the black stemware. your table looks very sophisticated !!
    ENjoy your Valentine's Day
