Red and Black Tablescape

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you my Little Birdie tablescape.  This is a variation of the same theme only I used these bold red and gray bowls from Home Goods and my red charger plates.  Home Goods sure didn't have much in the way of table linens but they had some beautiful tableware.

This is a great look for the season being that it's Valentine's Day and all.

It's simple and elegant at the same time, and if you remember my other tablescape, this was wrapping paper I used as a table runner.  I don't know why, but I think this is so much fun.  Much better than a paper tablecloth like we used to buy in the package for picnics.  Now that just gave me a crazy thought, a picnic table dressed in gorgeous wrapping paper.  Very romantic indeed.
I love this whole tone on tone look and it looks wonderful with this crackled pot with the beautiful French graphic.
Thanks for visiting.  Don't forget about the Ramsign give-away.  It ends on Wednesday evening.  Bon Appetit!

I saw those bowls at HG and couldn't picture using them, but you have nailed it! Your table looks great! I think black, white and red is perfect for Valentine's Day, sophisticated yet romantic!
