Love in the Gay 90s


We're still celebrating Valentine's Day here on The Little Round Table.
Today's offering started with the vintage tablecloth depicting courting couples in the 1890s and was a gift from one of my favorite Tablecloth Fairies!
Love those fairies!

Why not just sit back and soak up the love and I'll list the details at the end of today's post, along with the parties that I'll be linking to.

The linky Valentine party The Colors of Love here on The Little Round Table
is still open in case you would like to add more links to your Valentine tables, projects or stories.


















Vintage tablecloth was a gift and is listed in The Tablecloth Database here on TLRT
Old timey looking napkins from battenburglace.com
Contemporary Fiesta in White, Scarlet, Black and Shamrock
Vintage Depression glassware
Topiaries and Valentine picks from Michael's
Candy jar, white pitcher and flatware from Home Goods
Candle holders are canning jars with inexpensive doilies hot glued on

This table would work equally well with some alternate decorations for any time of year.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

  4. Hi, Candy! You're just amazing and here you go with another beautiful tablescape. Love the couples tablecloth. Do have to iron these each time as I never see a crease! :) Love the doilies on those Mason jars!! Everything is wonderful.
    Be a sweetie,

  9. Thanks everyone, I'm so glad you enjoyed some of the details on this table. Love those mason jars, such a simple and inexpensive way to give that old timey look to a setting. I just put a couple drops of hot glue on each and they can easily be removed to be reused or repurposed for something else.

    RE: IRONING When I launder my cloths I iron them when slightly damp with my super duper Rowenta steam iron. Air dry them, fold neatly and then prior to using them it just takes a quick lick to get rid of the fold lines.

    Hope to see you again very soon,
    Candy
