Hi everyone! One of the things I enjoy about creating tablescapes is discovering colors that I think look fabulous together. I opened the cabinet where I keep placemats and pulled out these well used yellow ones and started building on them as a base. The red, white and yellow just all seemed to blend beautifully together!
In years past I used this Valentine glass/vase as a holder for straws. This year it is a vase holding flowers, heart picks and pearls. I wadded up a couple red napkins in the bottom to act as "filler" and also to cover up the bottoms of the flowers.
The red tones carry through on the saucers, napkins and small heart dishes. And do you notice that something is missing? I only discovered it after I had taken the pics and loaded them up on the computer but, if you notice, let me know in the comments.
You know, this is a very simple table setting that anyone can mimic if you wish. Look through your cabinets and see what you have that you would enjoy using to create a fun tablescape for Valentine's, or any day!
Now, for something a bit different. I spent some time crafting last evening and got around to creating more of a "winter type" wreath for our front door. This wreath wouldn't look like much without the crystal snowflakes which add such a nice sparkle! It matches the other sparkly items in the foyer and is so cheerful to see when we walk by, especially at night when the foyer looks like ice is sparkling.
And, finally, here is some yummy soup I made for dinner last night. It was a simple vegetable soup with a tomato sauce and chicken broth base topped with a special couscous. I sauteed onions, mushrooms and spinach and added to the couscous before topping the soup to add some heartiness to the meal. It was SO good!
Let me know what you have been eating, crafting and enjoying in your world. And enjoy a lovely Valentine's Day. Be kind to yourself!
Until Next Time,
