  1. Such a lovely tablescape! And Yes, I would think that your quest and question of "Will you be my Valentine?" Will be met by your loved one with a Heart felt "Yes!"

    Blessings & Aloha!

  3. Q for Queen! I love this tablescape. Such a pretty one for a pink Valentine. And I particularly like the shots with the sunlight casting its rays across the table. These tussie mussies are even sweeter than the Christmas ones.

  4. Gorgeous tablesetting!!
    I love the black and white flowers, did you make them?
    Wishing you a fabulous day, and can an Aussie gal attend your party or is it only for Americans?

  6. Welcome Pink Lovers!

    Or should that be lovers of Pink?

    I've altered the party invite! Whatever was I thinking to imply that only the US existed where love was concerned???? Coty PLEASE DO JOIN US!

    Are those not the cutest black/white daisies? $1 each at the local craft store. I'm thinking ob buying plain white daisies and doing some more with a Sharpie black marker.

    Thank you all for your sweet comments, you are all eligible to be QUEEN of Hearts for at least one day each year!

  25. Wow! As a first time visitor to your blog I'm in awe. I am a new fan and am going to follow. That is a beautiful tablescape and I think your chargers are so unique. I am also in complete envy of your kitchen, it is an amazing work. On that note I fell for your table/island it is the perfect color of green and just the right size. I just have to ask wherever in the world did you find it? I've been wanting one for my kitchen and looking for a long time, no luck. Keep up the amazing work!

  34. I am in LOVE with this tablescape! It's so cute and romantic and definitely on the girly side. I love the pink. It's not overly done such that you'd feel like it's too pink but there's enough that it definitely has a romantic touch to it. I especially love the pink jelly beans and candy hearts. So cute!
