To celebrate Valentine's Day
I set a table with love 

Using chubby cheeked cherubs

and pretty pink azaleas

Simple Everyday China

With ruffled white linen napkins

Laguiole flatware

and Hearts that sparkle

Artist ~ Hayes Parker

I used the cherubs with ivy topiaries to decorate the tables at the after rehearsal dinner when my son was married. These are the three I kept and gave the others to the bride and groom, family and friends. I love to use them for Valentine's Day. They bring back special memories. 

Thank you for your visit. I hope you will leave a comment so I know you stopped in.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. Happy Valentine's Day, sweet Emily!! Right after I finish writing this I am running to my nursery to see if they have one of those gorgeous topiaries in stock!! It was supposed to be bright and sunny today but it is gray and ugly. That azalea would brighten everything up. Have a wonderful evening and thanks for the inspiration!!

  17. Emily, I'm late arriving for your beautiful table, but wishing you a happy belated Vhialentine's Day all the same. Your table and this post touch my heart. I love the elegance yet the simplicity of it all. The topiaries are magnificent! I can just imagine how pretty the rehearsal dinner must have been, and how special to have these keepsakes. The cherub urns are exquisite! Well done, my friend! This table is one of my favorites. Pinning these images!

  18. Emily, I am also late to seeing your beautiful post. Your home is gorgeous. I love your styling. Cherubs are adorable. Ruffled napkins are so girly and romantic. I need some to go with my ruffled placemats. The flowers and topiaries are so beautiful. Loving those sparkly hearts. So much to take in and admire. Would be heavenly to see this in person. xo
