Valentine's Day-A Little on the Wild Side

To begin with, I want to thank Susan from one of my favorite blogs, Between Naps on the Porch, for welcoming me into the Tablescape Thursday group which is hosted on her site.  I have been eagerly  looking forward to each Thursday for the past half year to view her blog including the many beautiful tablesettings from many of the talented artists that have created them.  I am honored to be among such creative and gifted people.  Thank you.  I hope that by sharing my tablesettings that I, too, can provide others with as much enjoyment as they have given me. 

Last week was my first posting to the party which was my Valentine's Day tablesetting.  I appreciate all the kind words I received and welcome others ideas or suggestions.  Even though I have posted my Valentine's Day tablescape, I realized that I still had this week to share my modified tablesetting.  Even though it may still be in line with the Valentine's Day theme, in my opinion, it has a whole new look.  The temptation was here! The cute little black, white and red rose appetizer plates inspired me to dig out my black Halloween placemats, napkins and glasses so that I could create the "A Little on the Wild Side Valentine's Day" tablescape. Let me know if you agree with me, but adding black to a tablesetting always sets a statement and changes everything.  It gives the entire table that WOW factor and, in some cases, it portrays elegance and regalness.  

So....let your hair down, kick off your shoes, play some upbeat music and get a little wild!  Happy Valentine's Day.

    1. Hi Valerie,
      Thank you. I must admit, I am fascinated with ladies who "pile on the plates" and have some beautiful and interesting stacks of various size and shape plates. Love it.

    1. Hi Barbara,
      I am happy that you like the black too. I would love to use old and new items in a tablesetting that I see others do in their tablesettings. So interesting! I hope you have a cozy Valentine's Day.
      Warm wishes from Wisconsin......Marsha

  4. Hi Pam,
    Yes, I am so happy to join in on the fun. I am so glad that I am "among the like-minded". Do you dream of salad plates and other dinnerware too? Seriously, it is such a joy to meet others who share the same passion for a well dressed table. Thank you for visiting.

    1. Thank you, Rosie. The little rose plate had such a bold pattern for being a little plate. It does make a statement, doesn't it. I am new at blogging, so thank you for visiting. It really is fun.
