Family Time, Valentine’s Table Setting
Jan 30 Cassity
Okay, I realize that I didn’t get this up yesterday… but the good news is that I cleaned my house! Yea!.. well, I cleaned the downstairs, today I need to do the upstairs. (less excited) yea.
Anyway, I am going to show you the family or group setting, which also had a theme. I guess it all started shopping at Wally world. Technically, I was looking for my Horchata mix, but the Latino foods are right next to the Asian foods, and well it is just so fun to look.
First, I found some little chocolate sticks, that would be so much cuter with sprinkles… then I had to buy fortune cookies, cause they would be cuter dipped in chocolate with sprinkles… I think my brain may just be filled with sprinkles! Either way, Valentines is just better with sprinkles! Then, I found some Valentine’s Take out boxes and that sealed the deal!
It also just so happens that my sister Tiffany lived in Japan for 3 years with her family and she was cool, no -super awesome enough to buy me a whole set of beautiful Japanese dishes. And I have been collecting other pieces to go with them for the last 8 years… at garage sales, Ross, Ross and uh Walmart.
The color scheme is also a little less formula Valentines, but I really love how the pops of red really show.
On to the table scape. Here is the table before:
I used an old table cloth that was my grandmothers. I really love it.
Also, I had two red table runners. Technically they are too long to hang across the table this way, so I overlapped them where they would be covered by the place mat.
All I really knew, was that I wanted to use my dishes and have a fortune cookie with the little chocolate sticks on there and so I fooled around until I got a look that worked for me.
I used my Dutch glasses that my best friend Nanette brought home for me when I was like 18, probably the best memento I have ever received from someone else’s vacation.
I tried folding the napkins into cranes, but they were too big, it may be something I try another time…
These Hurricanes are from Walmart, I filled them with red hots, and a white unscented 3″ pillar candle and placed them on one of the Japanese like plates I got at Ross.
The vase in the center is from Ross, it cost something like 4.00. Gotta love that.
Here are the rest of the pictures, I was having fun taking them.
*** EDIT: I’ve had two questions about the chandelier: There are the crystal hearts tutorial on this post, tied up with fishing line or clear thread. And then I threw on a wired garland from the dollar store, and for some reason the picture is coming in sideways, thanks blogger! I just took another picture… Hope that helps clarify.
So this, is my first try at really setting up a table all by myself…
I know I own the dishes, but most of the time I fell like that is enough.
So, how do you think it went?
Do you like the colors?
What else would be fun with this theme?
