When I was bought a bouquet of flowers at the grocery store last week,
without giving it much thought, I bought pink.
They turned out to be a perfect centrepiece for a Valentine's tablescape.
So I started setting the table with some red, white and pinks.
When I first started to put together my pieces,
I knew I wanted to to have chocolates as part of my setting.
So I popped out to Walmart and came home with some cute Russell Stover
small heart shaped chocolate boxes.
Before my tablescape was even finished, so were the chocolates. Gone.
Luckily I only bought two - I know me too well.
I have no discipline sometimes!
Defeated, I went out to the dollar store to buy
another round of chocolate and other Valentine's sweets.
I knew I would not be tempted to eat their chocolate.
So this is what I came home with.
These chocolate red heart thingys.
To place inside the dessert bowls.
Small chocolate pink hearts.
And of course, candy love hearts.
I used a cute red and white polka dotted tea towel to go under my centrepiece.
My mother gave this to me for Christmas - she knows I love red.
Red chargers under white Better Homes & Garden dinner and salads plate.
I bought these at Walmart a few years back.
Then for a wee bit of colour, I added my pink Royal Albert Serenity dessert bowls.
A wide view of my dining room, plus a glimpse of my new IKEA sofa.
The white shag throw on the sofa I picked up on sale for $7.98 at Meijer's in Port Huron MI.
Still no pillows on the sofa, just can't find anything I like so far that isn't crazy expensive.
So now you ask me, how are the chocolates fairing?
Now that the tablescape is finished and pictures have been taken?
Haven't had not even one.
But my son is home this weekend, need I say more! Gone. :)
