Earlier this week it was 70 degrees.
This is not winter....
We have just had the most wild weather all year long.
We will probably wind up with two feet of snow in March...
I thought it would be fun to set the table
for my three little Valentine's.
I had a little help from my littlest Valentine
while I was setting the table so I got a little frazzled.
You know...I didn't want to share my dishes...go play with your
own toys...every thing I would set down, Jackson
would pick up and say
"ooohhhh, this is pretty"
While I was glad he appreciated my pretty table,
I wanted just a few minutes to play.
I didn't get my few minutes thanks to
someone refusing to take a nap.
I started out with a white table cloth,
which may prove to be a mistake with
two little messy boys!
Placed my dishes on these square woven placemats
from World Market
(Thanks, Jackie...I used my Christmas Money to buy these!)
When we think of Valentine's Day everything is
usually pink and red and dreamy.
With my little boys,
pink makes them twitch, so I decided to
choose a pale turquoise blue.
I found these polka dot plates on the
clearance isle at Hobby Lobby one day
several months ago. I thought they looked
like spring to me when I bought them,
but I decided to bring them out to add a touch
of blue to this table.
I found the white dinner plates at TJ Maxx for $9.99 for the set of 4.
Thanks to some Christmas money from Scott's mom,
they followed me home.
I really liked the scalloped edges and thought they
would be a good mix and match set.
The little dot detail seemed to go with the polka dots on the turquoise plates.
I pulled out a couple of pieces of my Scarlet Fiesta Ware
to add a little red for the holiday. I only have two place settings
in Scarlet so I used the bowls at 2 settings and the salad plate
at the other two.
I grabbed my red acrylic handled flatware
for a little more red.
I found the little white heart shaped bowls a Tuesday Morning
for $2.00 a piece and thought they
would be fun to make a yummy little dessert in for the boys.
Since Jackson was helping me set the table,
I completely forgot to put out any glasses
or a centerpiece. So what's a girl to do? I headed to
the internet and see if I could "window shop" for some
cute glasses to add to my table one day...
I found two styles of red goblets at Target
that would look cute with my little
Valentine's Day setting...
I also saw these pretty aqua blue goblets...
But they will wait...
Scott kept asking my the other day what I wanted for Valentine's Day.
I was trying to be good and told him just to skip it this year...save that money for
our trip...but he kept asking if I had come up with any ideas.
Maybe a new set of glasses, honey!
(When he reads this, he may regret asking that question...
or tell me I was right, we need to save that for the trip...Ha Ha!)
Thanks for stopping by...
