Happy Pink Saturday!  I'm joining Beverly over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND   Please go visit Beverly and all the wonderful Pink many pretties to see

Today I'm doing a Valentine tablescape for two.  It is a casual but romantic table.


I started out with two very sweet heart place mats that I found in my local Thrift shop.  They are hand made and I love the fabric combination.

The plates are vintage USA California Pottery from Vernonware and the pattern is called "Tickled Pink"

I have four of these, the colors are pink and gray

I layered a clear glass plate and then a heart ramekin from crate and barrel.  I like how you can still see the 'tickled pink' pattern through the clear plate

I added some everyday flatware

A pretty pink napkin in a vintage water glass
and the table is ready 

The centerpiece is a simple apothecary jar filled with glittered hearts on a cute little pink and red stripped plate.  I set this atop a small cake plate for some height.  Candle holders and pink candles complete this centerpiece.

The bottle of this wine is shaped like a cat and was a special issue for Breast Cancer Awareness.  It was a Christmas gift from my dear friends Terry and Dennis.

I love to use Pink for my Valentine's Day decorations
Hope you enjoyed my Pink Saturday Photos!
