Romantic Tablescape for Two Bloghop

Romantic Tablescape

Table for Two Blog Hop

 

What is romance to you? Is it snuggling by the fire? Hiking through nature with the person of your dreams? Or is it the definition given by Merriam-Webster?

“A feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.”

I am a “romantic” at heart and love all things related to adventure, imagination and just about anything that creates an escape from the everyday routines of life. So, when approached by Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate to join a group of extremely talented ladies in this tablescape bloghop, I was quick to “hop” on board. It is an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this group of bloggers.

Preparing the Table

A dear friend of the family cleaned out some of her china recently and gave me several pieces from her collection. It’s a double honor today, to use some of her treasures.

 

Lenox Pinafore

The floral salad plate is part of her Lenox, Pinafore pattern.  It’s such a delicate pattern of pinks and greens, I thought it perfect for a romantic tablescape.

Cakeplate in Tablescape

The depression glass bell was a gift from my sweet sister. The crystal and brass votives were found at a local flea market. Pulling it all together for a romantic dinner with my hubby, was the most fun of all. Yes, it’s a bit fru-fru for a man, but he loves me regardless!

A Feeling of Excitement

 

SweetTarts

Nothing more fitting to scatter across the table than a few SweetTarts. My daughter and I LOVE them! It was a challenge to arrange them on the table without eating them.

 

a toast on Valentine's

My mother-in-love gifted these champagne flutes to us one Christmas. They are pink stemmed from the Breast Cancer Awareness Shop for a Cure.

 

Scattered hearts
Scattered hearts also represent our families that live in different places all over the country.

A Little Mystery

As the sun begins to set, I plug in the lights beneath the table for a little extra ambiance.

Cupcakes for Two

The French chairs are his and her antiques. How fun that he has his chair with elevated arms and I have mine… with more relaxed arms. It’s like the chair has been pulled out for me by more than one gentleman….my man and the creator of this chair from generations ago.

 

A couple of gifts for the man who is the absolute love of my life. He is a server, provider, giver, wonderful father and I am blessed to be his wife.

Ready for a nice evening at home. If only the weather would cooperate! Snuggling by the fire is my favorite.

Your romantic table for two looks so sweet! I like how the “gifts for him” take center stage as I can tell from the way you describe your “sweetheart” that he means so much to you. The scattered hearts on the table is definitely an idea I’m pinning! They look great and how special to have them mean “hearts scattered around the world”. Your his and her chairs look super comfy and should make your meal all the more enjoyable. So fun participating in this blog hop with you!

Kim, what a lovely table! You certainly showcased the pastels in a classy way, minus any feeling of saccharin sweetness. I laughed at your comment on the sweet tart challenge (that would be me!). Love the lighting, especially that under table lighting (surprise!). I love that color pink in the stemware – perfect for a romantic look.

Kim, Your sweet heart shines through your tablescape. Lovely, to create a romantic ambience with gifted and collected items. I hope the weather cooperates for you too. It’s been so crazy none of us know. About six years ago we had snow in south Alabama for Valentine’s Day.Do you remember that?
I love your scattered hearts on the table representing scattered loved ones across the country. Sweet thoughts of your husband also.
Glad to be tablehopping with you this week.
