Don't you just love my scripture plates? I found a set of 8 plates a few years ago at Ross and grabbed them up quick. I have enjoyed using them at different times.
My centerpiece is simple as is my tablescape.
My little naked fat babies as the "Grands" call them came out to make their appearance.
Red, white and black seemed to be my color theme this year for Valentine's.
The red hearts in the center of the plates I made out of card stock.
Several of you have asked me about my dining table. My grandfather built my table and benches many years ago. Nothing fancy about it but it sure means the world to me. The table is a little wider than the average dining table and it makes it hard to find a fitted tablecloth. I do have several that fit well but most often I would rather use a runner or pretty blankets or different colors of material for overlays. I have taken material when I have found it on sale and whipped up a little tablecloth. I have thought seriously about painting the table and redoing the benches and chairs. I have actually looked for two chairs but can't quite find what I like.
My adult family of 8 can all sit together when eating. My grandchildren sit at our breakfast bar. So it makes it really nice that we all can be in the same room together while eating. That table is some kind of heavy too! I might get brave and tackle a reno....but....I'm going to have to do some thinking and that can be dangerous with me! LOL!
My daughter Melissa created a Hot Chocolate vignette for Valentine's day for her family and I wanted to share it with you. It turned out so adorable don't you think?
Speaking of a little "love" I spent the day with my two youngest daughter's on Saturday. We had breakfast together at Cracker Barrel and then a day of shopping. My oldest daughter and her family had left for a mini vacation and I missed her not being with us. We had a cookout at her house the night before so that was a plus. But, we are all so blessed that we live close to one another, talk daily and see each other often. Believe me....I can't hide from them because I have tried! Hee-hee.....Truthfully, I wouldn't have it any other way.
I will leave this with you for your enjoyment to read. I found this on Wallethub that was based on celebrating Valentine's Day in 2018.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
