It's that time of year when we all see red and lots of it. For this tablescape I took some ideas from Pinterest. I combined three different red and white transferware china patterns. I liked the mix and match idea. I placed fresh raspberries and mint in the champagne flute. It really was refreshing. I didn't think the mint would mix with the champagne, but it really was very good not to mention very pretty.
I placed these red roses in my ironstone pitcher.
I mixed them with a few white stems to make it a little more interesting.
Then we prepared plain white cupcakes, removed the baking wrapper and squiggled a bird's nest design on top with pink frosting. More raspberries and mint and a dollop of whipped cream. Got this idea from Pinterest too.
This beautiful Staffordshire pitcher was a fabulous find at the flea market last week. Isn't it wonderful? It's in mint condition.
What would Valentine's Day be without chocolate dipped strawberries? These were dipped in melted chocolate candies and mini chocolate chips, coconut and almonds. This was another great idea from Pinterest.
Last but not least, my daughter made these beautiful heart shaped brownies using a special pan from Williams Sonoma.
Of course, when the real Valentine's Day arrives, I will try to eat my veggies before I dive into all the great sweet treats, but, after all, Valentine's Day is all about the goodies. Right? Hope you're all finding great ideas on Pinterest too. Thanks for stopping by.
