Love is in the Air!

Everywhere you look around.
I have told you before, I LOVE Valentine's Day. I still can remember vividly passing out those precious little cards at school and maybe some candy. It was and still is a favorite day of mine.
I started my decorating with a tablescape for Susan's Tablescape Thursday. I hope you enjoy it. Really, if you have followed my blog for a while, you have seen almost everything before.

 CB birdie S&P from last year.

Glasses from Kroger/Fry's last year, by Libby.
 Heart beaded coasters from Kroger/Fry's last year.
Placemats - Dollar Tree
Napkins - Everything for 99 cents
Napkin Rings - small store in Payson last year...they are hand forged.
Red chargers and black plates, I don't remember anymore, had for years.
Heart salad/dessert plate - I think it was Target last year.
Red silverware!!! - NEW - my hubs felt sorry for me cuz I whined....I admit it.  So he took me to Walmart and we found these.  I told him, I can use for Valentine's day, 4th of July and Christmas.  He rolled his eyes and mumbled something.  Aren't they perfect?

 I know, they are cute and I am sorry, but I don't remember.  I want to say Target a couple of years ago.

 Birdie from CB 2 years ago.  Love and XOXO are hang tags from Walgreens last year.
 I love these little candles.  From the Dollar Tree before it was the Dollar tree.  I love the bead on the wick.  Nope, never burning these babies!
 Hurricane lamps from Kirkland many moons ago!
 Every time I put this plate out I think of my friend Rose.
 Match box...from Melrose Vintage this year with Karen.
 Keys from a little defaunt store that had the cutest stuff.

Little wine candles - Kroger/Fry's again a LONG time ago.

I must say, this is one of my favorite tablescapes.  But I say that every year.....

I am off to visit all the pretty tablescapes at Susan's, Between Naps on the Porch.  See you there!  Also linking to

Okay there are so many things I want off of that table. Like those heart glasses. Red and hearts. Love em and I can't believe where you got those placemats they are so cute.

Oh Ceekay, this is just adorable. I love everything. I don't have one single heart thing and have never decorated for Valentines. Maybe I'll buy a red heart box of candy. Your tablescape is stunning. I just love it. Hugs, Marty

Love it Ceekay!
You have some of the cutest reds there!
I love those tall hurricanes and I was just looking at that same silverware!
I need to whine more! hehe.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

I saw the red silverware in Walmart too--but my hubby was there and rolled his eyes when I tried the same excuse of Memorial Day/July 4th/Valentine's/Christmas...maybe I'll go back because the color is wonderful. Your table is pretty! I need to put away the last few Christmas remnants before I take out the Hearts! Linda

Becky said...

Love your Love table setting.

This is a really, really cute table Ceekay! I especially LOVE those glasses from Kroger, the s&p shakers and the butter knives. And I find that when I want something, whining does wonders over here too!
Happy REDnesday!
p.s. I like your blog header too!

Ann said...

What a fantastic tablesetting for such a sweet day!! I love those salt and pepper shakers and the napkin rings. Your hubby probably mumbled the same thing mine mumbles when I justify any purchase.:o) It is so much fun though!
Have a wonderful day.
