Sharing a Checkered Past Today
~Last year's Valentine's Day Tablescape~
Set with favorite things!
Courtly Check balls filled a silver bowl,
and Courtly Check bows were abundant.
I wanted to change things up a bit
so just for fun each place setting was different.
A black woven mat below
a pewter charger anchors this setting.
Layers of red mix between
the black and white checked pieces,
and are topped with a sponge ware heart shaped bowl and a crown themed cloth held by a checked ring by Round Top Collection. Flatware is vintage.
and is topped with layers of red
mixed with black and white checks.
Red and white flatware is from Pottery Barn.
A small square decoupaged plate holds
a Round Top Collection jar of red hot hearts.
This perky little Courtly Check rooster, along with
the CC balls and hearts are the work of my friend and
More of the crown themed textiles anchor this setting. A white charger in Vintage Garden from Ambiance Collection holds the stack of red pottery mixed with the checked pieces. Flatware is Sir Christopher by Wallace.
A square woven mat, a gold charger from Home Essentials & Beyond, and a red square Waechtersbach plate from Germany contrasts with the round checkered pieces.
The squares are topped with layers of plates in the Queen's Rooster from Neiman Marcus and Royal Stafford's black and white checked. Christophe flatware is in the Talisman pattern.
along with this key to my heart,
and a little mercury glass.
Checking off the days till Valentine's Day 2011.
