A Pink Valentine for Sunday Favorites

I went back through some of my older Valentine tablescapes and thought I'd re-post this one and join in with Chari's Sunday Favorites over at Happy to Design.
______________________________________________________________________
This is a pink Valentine table for two 
I created last year for Mr. Delight and I.
 

The table is next to our front windows and
we often eat breakfast here. 
I decided to dress up the table for an intimate dinner using a pink tablecloth, pink candles, pink hearts and pink flowers.



Pink tulips in a glass vase are put on a pedestal cake plate. 
I surrounded the base with white mini-lights covered in tulle.
The crystal candle lamps are by Partylite purchased 
quite a few years ago.
The pink beaded hearts were from HomeSense last year.


  

This pink and white china is called Dimity Rose by Royal Albert. It is the pattern we chose (well I chose!) 27 years agofor our wedding china.

I used vinyl heart-shaped cling-ons on the stemware and votive holders to make them fit the theme.  
The burgundy ringed glasses are special to me as I inherited
them from a favourite great aunt.
  
This is another tablescape I did before I had a blog and can you imagine, I only took 4 pictures of it!  I'm showing this pic again enlarged so you can see a bit more detail.
 
Thanks for looking! Hope you are having a good weekend.  
Grab a cup of coffee and take some time to check out the others linked to Chari's Sunday Favorites.

Your table looks beautiful. I really like the dishes and the burgendy rimmed glasses, they are timeless. And what a great idea to use the vinyl on the glasses and votives (I am so going to copy that idea! Brillant!)
