Valentine's Tablescape #2: Elegant


Yesterday I shared with you the first (whimsical) Valentine's Day Tablescape that I made during the winter  storm.   (Recall here).  Today, here is the second tablescape, a bit more elegant!  I used the same tablecloth as the base (this is really a swatch of fabric from Calico Corners that I had planned to use in Vivi's playroom).    I used two more swatches of fabric as runners across the table. 

Tablecloth: Remnant fabric from Calico Corners (I believe it's Mill Creek Raymond Waites). I ironed all four corners down for a straight "seam" around the edges.
Runners:   Remnant fabrics that I found from Jo Ann fabrics that I've used for table centerpieces for years.  I folded the edges of the fabric underneath to simulate a "runner" on the table. 

Plates: Home Goods Napkins:  White linen tied with twine with felt heart stickers adhered to the ends for decoration.  Wishbone:  Z Gallerie  Cake stand and Pitcher:  Home Goods  **** garland
I had fun and made some Valentine's Day garland above the table.  I used baker's twin and heart felt stickers.  I stuck the stickers to the twine (and put two stickers back to back so they stuck to each other).  Easy as pie and no glue needed). 

Which tablescape do you prefer?  #1 Whimsical or #2 Elegant? 

#1 Whimsical


#2 Elegant

Tomorrow check back for the Masculine Valentine's Day Tablescape!

I love this series. I think I'd do both tables. The first one for a lunch with the ladies in the afternoon and then the second for a love dinner that night. :)

I vote whimsical on this one! I do love the felt hearts on the elegant though :)
