Wintery Valentine Tablescape

January 31, 2013 by 39 Comments

It is really cold outside,  we had a few snow flurries last night but no snow on the ground.  Thinking about snow led me to do this small tablescape composed of all white and off-white pieces.  I’m thinking you are familiar with my dishes and glassware. I’ve shared the details with you before.  What I haven’t shown you is this vintage tablecloth made out of linen and lace.  I only use it for special occasions, I’m thinking it is well over 50 years old.  Me too!

Vintage Linen and Lace TableclothLinen and Lace star motif in the center of the table-topper, as you can see it had been hand stitched and over the years well preserved with love and a little mending here and there.

Winter ValentineThe tray in the center of the table displays  a cloche with a sweet birdie inside, a sugar and creamer set, a Fenton glassware dish with a candle and a white ceramic dish holding a sweet spring bouquet (faux).

Winter Valentine2Mikasa dishes,  Irish Stemware and Silver flatware in this picture.

Winter Valentine 3The glass cloche was placed on a milk-glass pedestal.  Inside the cloche a small ceramic bird is resting on a grapevine wreath  while keeping his feathers out of the snow (faux snow). Attached to the cloche with a satin ribbon is my favorite heart, made out of wood and painted white, I use it in many vignettes and never get tired of it.

Winter Valentine 6Another look at the all- white Winter  Valentine tablescape…very simple, calm and serene.  I just love the warm glow of candle-light on a wintery day.

As I cleared the table, I moved the sweetheart cloche over onto the sideboard and took one last picture.

Blessings to you on this wonderful day….I’m so glad you stopped by!
