I brought out the reds and pinks for the holiday we love. I did an easy mantel with Joe's help. (His idea, not mine) He has a great eye for making sure everything is "lined up". He guided me to make sure the "L" and "E" alphabet mugs from Anthropologie were in alignment with the frame of the mirror. The red fabric hearts are empty boxes of Valentine's candy from past years.
We are having a small gathering tonight since we have plans to eat dinner out on our anniversary on Valentine's day. I found heart placemats at CTS two years ago on clearance, and the centerpiece was made using Rose petals freshly plucked from the store shelf .
I used layers of Vietri Italian dinnerware that make both of our hearts go pitter patter. The dinnerware is called "Incanto", and we chose this because the textures play well together. We have five different patterns that we mix and match, and like the casual yet elegant look.
This pattern is called "Lace". The footed bowls are called "Stripe".
This pattern is called "Emblem".
This pattern is called "Flower".
I am loving the Luminara faux flame votive candles, especially because they came with a charger and don't require batteries. They look so real!
You may recall when I posted about Joe being referred to as the "Vietri Man" at the local gift shop where he buys gifts. I am going to print pictures of our Valentine/Anniversary table so he can take them to the shop.
