Hi my sweet friends!  I'm back home from almost a week of visiting our grandgirls at our daughter Sofia and SIL's new house.  This trip will be a next post, right now all I want is to wish everyone of you a HAPPY VALENTINE'S filled with lots of love! 
Tomorrow we'll be having dinner by candle light, the two of us in this table, with some Chinese take out hubby loves!  The soup bowls are perfect for some wanton soup with veggies.  We'll see about the rest of the menu, lol...
 I did my third Valentine's table for February 14, 2012...on my vintage French, with Carrara marble top table, in the foyer, or receiver and flanked by our two French stripped chairs.

 The red stems are vintage and they belonged to my MIL.
My red chargers with vintage doilies from Belgium.

 The dinner plate is from my fine china set. I like to mix and match colors like red and black.
 The red plate is from a set of four dinner and mug plates...they're made in Ecuador.
The heart soup bowls I bought while visiting my daughter Sofia and found them for $1,45 at her supermarket.
I love this table for tomorrow, Valentine's Day, as we will be having chinese take out, which we simply love!
I high shot, so you can see the red bows design inside the soup bowls. These heart soup bowls are simple, but cute and perfect! I saw some heart shape dinner plates which I bought for my grandgirls...I didn't like the idea that they were pink, with checks and dots and wouldn't have matched my reds, or these bowls for that matter.
This antique, transparent, bone china tea set is from after WWI. I have six teacups and saucers and two teapots, one big and one small and a sugar bowl, which have dragon handles.
I love to mix black and red, it's so dramatic and romantic too.  The antique Chinese tea set has lots of red as well.
On your left corner you can see the smaller teapot.
The pretty hand painted platter was made by us at our former Ceramic Co.
I'm also using my pair of vintage French couple, wearing blue hats.
Anyway, here goes my Valentine's tablescape which I also dedicate to all of you my dearest blog friends. May you have a wonderful lovers day, filled with lots of love!

Happy Valentine's to the wonderful hostesses and thank you so much for having me, as well.
