Sweet eating

Hello, all,

Inspired by my friend Tricia's gorgeous table setting at The Dull and the Dutiful I decided to give it a try, although it's not possible I'll live long enough to have her touch of tablescape magic. Check it out: http://thtolbert.blogspot.com/

Meanwhile, over here in honor of February, I started with a red Ralph Lauren cloth with white top stitching, layered with a white runner with a red design. I used plain white plates topped with polka dot red and white with a third that have hearts round the rim. 
The crystal is from a set Mr. B gave me on an early anniversary and the silver belonged to my in-laws.

The napkins don't match because they are two embroidered dish towels found new at a thrift shop.
I can't use real flowers or plants because our cats eat them so here is a fake fern in a paper mache pot, chosen for its heart-shaped blossoms on the side. It's set upon a beautiful tray that was a gift from Tricia, scattered with some stickers.
The polka dot plates also came from Tricia; aren't they cute?
Here are the ones with the heart drawing borders, bought at the Sand Dollar a few months ago.

One last look at a sweet table for a couple:
Thanks for looking at my modest effort! Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Till next time,

Michele! You tablescaped! I love it! Thank you for the shout-out, too. Your "plate stack looks wonderful, and the whole table looks beautifully festive. You must report on Mr. B's reaction!
