A Romantic Valentine's Setting

Hello sweet friends!

Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine's full of love and joy with your special man, with your kids, with a bunch of friends, with just your best friend; with whom ever you choose to celebrate the DAY of LOVE 2016.

I will be with my favorite man, Mr. Living and we'll have dinner together and the table is set for four for my Valentine's post because the table looks so much fuller and prettier, but, who knows, maybe we'll have a couple more, as maybe a brother and a Sil.

                                     Happy Valentine's 2016

My 2016 romantic Valentine's table setting.

Some of the friends that follow me know I have an entire set for twelve of this reticulated Ivory china and for my romantic Valentine's table I picked the dinner plate from it with a red and white transferware salad plate and an all red teacup and saucer for tea and dessert.

I paired the reticulated dinner plate with red transferware 'Old England' salad plate.

Ending with a red teacup and saucer made in Ecuador and I have a breakfast set of four of these. I love the happy red it is!

A shot from above, standing on a chair which Alejandro always says... 'You're gonna fall one of these days!'... can you believe it!

The centerpiece is displayed on top of my 'glass lazy-susan' and the cupids or cherubs sitting on a red heart taking centerstage, along with red flowers and red transferware teapot, creamer and sugar bowl. 


I made the table topper specially for Valentine's when I started blogging four years ago, cause I loved the fabric with different color hearts all over it, flowers and even butterflies.

The red stems are Italian from my C'mas stash.

Thank you for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

Have a great and happy Valentine's!
