  4. Such a romantic setting: love your choice of florals and different patterned plates. Beautiful. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    1. Thanks, Rosie! If there’s one thing I love for adding complexity is mixing patterns. That one is left over from my fashion design days… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for visiting!!

  5. Lory, you never cease to amaze me. I love how you bring so many unexpected elements together and magically it works. This is so beautiful!

    1. Wow, thanks so much, Lani! Sometimes even I wonder if these disparate elements will work, but it’s almost like going somewhere you think is above your means – just act like you belong and no one will know the difference. That’s how I approach my dishes on the table… lol!

  6. Very romantic…love your pretty tea pot, how sweet are your bird salt and pepper shakers, just perfect for a Valentine’s Day table….


    1. Thank you, Maritza! Sometimes I get so caught up in the bigger pieces like furniture and such, that I forget how much I love shopping for these smaller gems. I think I’m due for a trip to the antique market!!

  7. Absolutely perfect, I can’t think of a favourite element! ๐Ÿ™‚ The tartan and china mugs were a stroke of genius… great job!

    1. Thank you, Mariele! It was actually a kind of happy accident, as I was looking for something red and I saw them in the cabinet and thought, “could I?” Wsn;t sure at first but kept coming back to them. So glad you like them… ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. So beautiful, I love the romance of Valentine’s Day too. You just can’t go wrong with a red tablecloth, beautiful china, and lovely flowers. Stunning.

  9. The stack came together beautifully and the tartan plaid is wonderful!
