Tablescapes, XO Hugs & Kisses

 

Welcome to the annual Celebrate and Decorate Valentine Blog Hop!

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day is celebrated as a birthday in my house,  my son was born on Valentine’s Day, and he is a real sweetheart!

 

 

 

 

To keep this table more on the masculine side, I chose to use black, and bold red and white checks

 

 

 

 

Pewter plates, antique silver goblets, sleek gold edged flatware, and chalkboard ribbon for the napkins

 

 

 

 

The centerpiece features shiny silver packages nestled into a checked Valentine cloth atop a painted table runner {details at the end of post}

 

 

 

 

The heart ornaments and the star hanging from the chandy were recent gifts from a very special friend

 

 

 

 

❤️  Thank you Emily!  ❤️

 

 

 

 

A silver champagne bucket with a tray of crystal flutes anchor one end of the table

 

 

 

 

And a plate full of chocolate kisses anchors the other end

 

 

 

 

Plenty of Hugs & Kisses for this Valentine birthday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Juicy Details

The table runner was made with a length of freezer paper on which I painted large black Xs and Os

 

 

 

For the napkins, I tied them with a length of chalkboard ribbon and used a chalk paint pen to write the X O on them

The red and white checked Valentine fabric is a round table cloth {Hobby Lobby} which I couldn’t get the wrinkles out of–I CAN NOT iron 😂 so I wadded it up  carefully arranged it and used it on top of the freezer paper runner

The gold edged flatware is a recent purchase from Hobby Lobby

The much loved Pewter plates were wedding gifts

The silver packages are actually wrapped square kleenex boxes that I have used many times in various vignettes and tablescapes

The silver goblets belonged to my paternal grandmother
