I love Valentine's Day! I always bring out a few of my favorite cards and "gifts of love" from years past to display on a tray or on The French Hutch. This year we will be dining at a friends home but I still wanted to set a romantic table for two in the den.
I love to set a table in front of the fireplace. Using a table I normally use to hold photographs is just the right size.
For the centerpiece I am using my MacKenzie-Childs flower pot and ivy wreath. I added the beautiful copper heart and bow, a gift sent to me last year from my sweet friend Sarah at Hyacinths for The Soul.
These round black placemats are perfect for the place setting. Courtly Check dinner and salad plates and lidded chowder bowls
I love the stack!
