A Valentine’s Tablescape
We have more cold, ice and snow predicted this week with two back to back storms! With plans to go to a Valentine’s dinner, I decided to go ahead and set a table should the inclement weather change our plans and keep us home.
This is the perfect excuse to use this gorgeous ruby red on white stoneware by Juliska. I received the platter for Christmas after dropping a lot of hints over it last year at Neiman’s. After the holidays I found the remaining pieces on sale at an unbelievable sixty percent off. One of those “Déjà Vu" moments when you know you’ll never see this bargain again! So, I grabbed up my bargains and didn’t let this opportunity pass me by.
This stoneware is a perfect design and color to use for this cold Valentine’s Day. Ruby red and white and the winter scenes mimic some of the gaiety occurring outside my window, provided by neighborhood school children home because of “snow day” school closings. If the roads are dangerous because of icy conditions we plan to stay home. Either way I wanted to set a casual table in the kitchen to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
