Happy Valentine's Day! This is a simple breakfast table that I set for the folks that have the key to my heart: my precious Mom and Mr. Pressed Pants.
Breakfast was the only meal we were eating at home today, so I set this pastel table for us. Why pastel, you ask?
Well, these conversation hearts inspired me to pull out my LuRay china that I have collected for years. Then these pale pink gerbera daisies jumped into my basket at Whole Foods yesterday, and I had a plan.
This is a well-known trick for "lining" vases with any material that complements your arrangement. Just a small vase inside a slightly larger one then use almost anything in between. Easy-peasy!
So....a pastel table was born for a breakfast of three.
LuRay china comes in these four colors. The heart shaped plate is not LuRay, but the pink is a perfect match. You can see how I use this china for Easter here. I added this pale pink flatware that I've had for ages.
These juice glasses are actually cut glass vases that I thought would be great glasses and voila! I bought twelve.
These antique napkin have such finely detailed needlework. They are the finest, softest linen. I wish I could learn about some of the other meals they have seen. Do you ever wish your antiques could talk to you? Am I strange?
Here are some of the many serving pieces that come in this old pattern.
I have this sweet little jam dish and spoon with foxgloves on it. It is Carleton Ware. I think I need more of this!
What do you think? Not your typical red and white Valentine's Day table, but we all certainly felt surrounded by love.
