The Sweets Shoppe at The Colors of Love Linky Party

Welcome to my first linky party which evolved from the Coast-To-Coast tablescaping events, that have appeared here on The Little Round Table over the last few months.

Please share anything that involves The Colors of Love at the end of this post.
is hosting our party

My online tablescaping adventures started when a group of far flung dish friends began sharing ideas for incorporating our passions for dishes and vintage tablecloths into our daily lives. Gathering collections of beautiful things to use and not just display, we are known as the Dish Divas or Tablecloth Fairies, as we often bestow unexpected gifts upon our fellow collectors and share a mutual love for Homer Laughlin dinnerware and both contemporary and vintage table linens.
Divas participating in today's party include:
Daphne from Tabletop Time
and of course all of
YOU
Here's wishing you a most Happy Valentines Day from
Coast-To-Coast and Shore-To Shore around the world!

The Sweets Shoppe

This vintage tablecloth called "I Remember" was made by Simtex and is
a vision of some of my favorite things! Fiesta dinnerware, depression glass,
and all kinds of sweet things. This was a tough one for me to put together ....
I kept eating all the accessories!




There is something sweet in your goodie box and it isn't Chinese food.


Handmade tussie mussies also contain treats to carry home.




















Vintage Tablecloth by Simtex
Tumblers - Target
Cutwork Coasters - marylandchina.com
Vintage depression green glassware
Chartreuse plate - vintage Homer Laughlin
Fiesta in Rose, Lemongrass and Tangerine
Flatware, napkins, candleholders, cutwork plates, apothecary jars - Home Goods
Goodie boxes, vase, votives, floral picks, candles - Michael's
Cannister jars - Fiesta
Cannister bins - Ikea about 10 years ago
Jelly Beans - AUTHENTIC Jelly Bellies from the The Jelly Belly Factory which is all of 7 minutes by freeway from my house!  And the best part is you can buy Belly Flops for much less than the perfect bellies.

All other edible treats came from Sweet Factory

Thanks so much for coming by to visit,
I hope this tablescape has made your life a little sweeter!

  4. Candy, I can't believe how much work you put into this pretty table and sideboard! I love the bright colors. And it is surprising how well the fiesta works with vintage style tussie mussies and chinese takeout containers! The ribboned plates accent the fiesta ware so nicely. I'm joining your party! Hope you enjoy my post as much as I did yours! Linda

  7. Hi Candy...

    Ohhh my goodness!!! My friend, your Valentine Sweet Shoppe is simply divine! Ohhh...I wished that you could have heard the squeal that came out of me when I seen that first photo! It's sooo delightful and sooo much fun! Why I feel just like a "kid in a candy shop" for sure! Well my dear, you have certainly outdone yourself with this sweet Valentine table...although, I think that calling it a shoppe is much more fitting...there is so much more than just a tablescape going on here! The colors that you chose are just so happy! I love it! Your place settings...gorgeous! Of course, you know how I love that pretty cut-work plate and the ribbon that you coordinated with your table colors...sooo awesome! Love the treat box and the pretty tussie mussie as well! The tussie-mussie is my favorite...of course, those pretty rock candies on a stick may have something to do with it being my fav! Hehe! Ohhh...and I just love how you decorated the buffet area...it's just awesome, my friend! I'm tellin' ya...this would lick anyone's fancy that has a sweet tooth! Mmmm..pear jelly beans? Sounds sooo yummy! Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous Valentine "Sweet Shoppe" with us...what a treat!!!

    I also wanted to thank you for hosting this Valentine party for us! I was so excited to be able to join in and I'm also looking forward to checking out all of the party pretties! Thank you, Candy!

    Warmest Valentine wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  24. Becky told me that my tablesetting was brimming over with love. {{{HUGS}}} to Becky however,it's not that vintage "look" that most of you participating here seem to have but I was sooooooo very happy for her to tell me to paarticipate. I do love all of your vintage tablesettings and I am on the verge of collecting Fiesta. YIKES!!!!!

  35. What a sweet Valentine's Day party! For many of us in the Sandwich Generation, constantly busy dealing with the issues of caring for elderly parents and babysitting grandchildren, it is a rare treat to get out and about to holiday parties. Delightful holiday blog parties, like this, allow us to enjoy company and lovely sights, get fun new ideas, and never gain an ounce! What a treat! Thank you for a delightful visit.

  37. I love it! It looks so.....sweet. Thanks for all the great ideas. I have never posted a tablescape before, maybe I will before your link closes. I do have a special one for this Valentine's Day. Thanks so much for hosting such an inspirational party.

    I hope you will come by my blog for a visit I am having a big giveaway.

  42. Thank you all for your very sweet comments! I so appreciate you stopping by to check out all the lovely Valentine posts.

    Michelle - There is no time like the present! And you don't need to do an entire tablescape either. A sweet place setting, a craft idea, or a simple treasured thing that says "love" to you. :-)

    Pam - I think I'm pretty much safe from temptation at this point, as I've pretty much cleaned out all the good stuff! LOL

    LOL Kathleen - NOPE this table is NOT round. Good eye!!!!

    Hi Bill, so nice to see you again! Thanks so much for the super compliment!

    Hope you all get a chance to check out today's Valentine tablescape called Love In The Gay 90s

  43. WOW.....what a colorful, creative, artistically put together tablescape!! I had to look at it closely for several visits to drink it all in and even then, I know I have missed some detail. You went the limits with this setting....love each and everything about it! I am in awe of your talent!
