An Old Fashioned Kind of Love

                     











For our special day and Valentine date night, I decided to use vintage dishes.  The snack trays with the sweet little cups have been in hiding for years.  They are so sweet and dainty.  They really make the red and white pop.  The sherbert dishes were given to me by my mother.  They were her wedding gifts.  I am making a chocolate cake for the bright cake stand.  I love to sew and decided this fabric matched the cake stand.  So, I fashioned a sweet little half apron to wear when I serve my husband.  Little Tussie Mussies have been made to hold chocolate candy.  As they say, "life is short eat chocolate first!"
Have a very happy Valentines day.






I am linking this post to Tablescape Thursday!  It is a beautiful site!

What a sweet tablescape! I was so happy to see one! Not everyone seems to be doing real tablescapes and this was so much fun to look at. I loved the entire way you have done it. WONDERFUL!

Lynn,

Your Valentines Day table is so cozy and inviting. I love the tablecloth. What a blessing to have such wonderful wedding pieces passed down to you from your mother. Thanks for sharing!
Happy Valentines Day! Mrs. S.
