Mini-Carnations and Ramekins…

Hello sweet Friends!  I’m writing this post in the afternoon and may I tell you what the outside temperature reading is?  70 degrees! Unreal! I think there will be another cold front headed this way though.  In meantime I’m having some fun setting up a Valentine’s tablescape.  My inspiration?  Fun mini-carnations and ramekins!  These ramekins are great for small floral arrangements and perfect for keeping a low profile in the center of the table.

My simple Valentine’s tablescape….Dinner for four!

My dishes are mix and match…from Mikasa.  The dinner and salad plates are Mikasa Antique White, I own a set of twelve, the cup and saucer are Mikasa Italian Country Side, I own a set of four.  Stemware is also mix and match, the smaller set of glasses came from Germany.  The square pedestal cake plate came from Steinmart, silver flatware  – a wedding gift. The square table-topper with the alphabetical print also made it’s way from Germany.  It is so nice having a sweet sister living in Germany,  she always sends me the best gifts!  She is my only sibling and I miss her dearly at times.

A closer look at the ramekins bursting with color from the mini-carnations.

ow about you?  Do you have special plans for Valentine’s?  Maybe a nice dinner with your sweetheart?  I hope your Valentine’s Day will be a very special!    Thanks for stopping by,  your visits make me very happy!
