Valentine Tablescape

Susan, over at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Thursday Tablescapes. Since Valentine's Day is coming up I dug up this photograph from a couple of years ago. My daughter helped me move a small round table to the living room, in front of the fireplace. I bought some shimmery organza in this large plaid design of pinks and reds. I used some of it for the tablecloth and some as big sashes tied around linen napkins. An empty sash is in the photo. My Lavender Rose china and wedding crystal sparkled in the firelight, and a vase of pretty pink flowers added the final touch. Oh, and a few cinnamon hearts sprinkled over the table top.

I'm still working on what I'll be doing this year.
