Valentine's Day Table for Two

Some of my favorite dishes are those with pink, peach and rose hues.  With Valentine’s Day just a couple weeks away, I thought I would bring out some of my appropriately colored dishes and set up a sweet Valentine’s Day Table for me and my hubby, Hector.

It will be … ♪ ♫ ♪ just the two of us. ♪ ♫ ♪

Valentine's Day Table for Two - layering the dishes with Fostoria American.

I decided to use my rose plates, and layer different dishes on top of them.  I wanted the rose pattern to show through so I put my Fostoria American 8½” Salad Plate as the first layer.  This addition brought sparkle to the place setting and was most beautiful when kissed by the sun. From there I added a smaller plate from Indiana Glass in the Kings Crown design (with ruby flash), and topped it off with a piece of pink Jeannette Glass.

This entire Valentine’s Day Table for Two tablescape was done with a variety of dishes and crystal.  From Fostoria, Jeannette Glass, Indiana Glass … and more, it is a table full of vintage pieces that mesh perfectly together. Not only are vintage dishes beautiful, but they also tell a story.  It is a story of past lives, past celebrations … and possibly a few mishaps. Because of this, they will always have a place in my heart ♥♥♥ and on my table.
