Is It Really Almost Valentine's Day...
I can't believe it is almost Valentine's Day...that means that February is half over!
I will join Susan of Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you, Susan for hosting each week.

Inspiration?...let's just say pink isn't my favorite color, but I didn't want to do another red table right off...so, pink it is.
I started with a pink tablecloth and pink napkins. Then I hunted around the house to see what other pink I could find...not very much as you will see. After taking most of the pictures I decided placemats were needed!
I started with a white charger, added a dinner, salad and dessert plate.
White charger. The backstamp is just MSE
Old British Castles by Johnson Brothers.
Salad plate is by Buffalo China, the pattern Rebecca.
Dessert plate is also Johnson Bothers Old British Castles.
Pretty pink stemware. The water glass is Indiana Reflections, which are reproductions of Depression Glass, Madrid pattern. I have no idea what the pattern/maker of the wine stem is.
Pink napkin wrapped in a vintage white with a flowered napkin ring. Sterling flatware is Oneida's Afterglow, 1956.
Flowered napkin ring up close.
Love the layers.
The "roses" in the little julep cups are actually for the bath...I just used toothpicks to hold them in floral foam!
Question for anyone...how do you get sharp pictures in candlelight? Mine are always grainy looking.
Thank you for visiting this week...also a huge thank you to my followers...I really am humbled that so many have chosen to follow my boring little blog. Have a great week and hope to see you here next week.
