Welcome, readers! Today I'm sharing a tablescape I've dubbed as "purple passion: fire and ice" to warm your winter day, spark some friendly conversation and, hopefully, deliver some inspiration for an inviting table setting.
This week I am celebrating a table set for Valentine's Day, along with a group of other stylists, graciously hosted and organized by Chloe Crabtree from the blog Celebrate and Decorate. My table today is set for four, perhaps to be shared with a favorite couple for Valentine's Day, or maybe three girlfriends, a la Galentine's Day style.
The table begins with a matelasse cloth as the base, as white as fresh fallen snow. The glass chargers are like puddles with ice rings, sitting upon placemats in regal purple. Candlelights reflected in the charger's center are subtle mood enhancers at the table.
Dinner plates are classic, Mikasa '.Magnolia'.
Whether you're hosting Valentine's, Galentine's (love with your gal pals), or just enjoying an ordinary, quiet dinner by candlelight, I hope you've been inspired with even one idea as a takeaway from my tablescape today. For plenty more inspiration, please see the complete list of bloggers participating in this gathering below, and links to their tables. Each day different bloggers are featured, and the links are updated to take you right to their posts. Be sure to check back to see them all. To Chloe Crabtree - a special thank you for organizing this event!
