A Valentine's Tablescape from One Pretty House Interiors

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  For some, it is a "Hallmark Holiday" barely worthy of the hype.  For others, it is a day to feel the warm fuzzies that love - all kinds of love can bring.  As we celebrate Valentine's Day 2010, here's an insprired tablescape for friends or lovers from One Pretty House Interiors...

Inspired by my new favorite move Julie and Juliawe've time traveled  to a 1950's Valentine's Dinner party for six at The Child's Paris flat.  Although the setting itself is simple and uncomplicated, it's warm, fun and made a fabulous setting in my own dining room.  Thanks again to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting us for today's Tablescape Thursday.

I began with my grandmother's white lace tablecloth over a plain hotel cloth.


Handmade construction paper hearts, place cards and decorative chain garland add to the charm and nostalgia.        

Long stem red roses in a turquoise clay vase and taper candles completes this lovely table.
Whether you're inviting five friends over for a girls night or hosting couples to celebrate your great love for each other - like Julia and Paul - this tablescape is just the right blend of whimsy and elegance to capture the true spirit of Valentine's Day.
