Cherubs and Hearts Tablescape

A day for love,  a day to share romance,  a day for fun,  Valentine's Day.

The items that are used for this Valentine's Day tablescape were collected over several years.  Long before I began blogging,  I played tablescaper for Valentines Day.  The vision of this tablescape started several years ago at Susan's Tablescape Thursday.   I had so admired the lacy look of the creamy white pierced chargers that she used in her lovely Valentine tablescape.  And then, one day last summer I found four chargers very similar to Susan's. I had a vision of what I wanted to create.
Long before I found the chargers I had been collecting cherubs from thrift stores for a future tablescape.  There are cherub candle holders.
 Both cherub candle holders came from the V.O.A.
And small cherub figurines.  Most of the figurines came from Marc's (my favorite close-out store).
The feathers were supposed to look like clouds.  I thought I would like them,  but I did not.  The feathers were removed and then I redid most of the photos.

I found the red heart salad plates on Ebay,  the oven safe heart shaped soup bowls came from T.J.Max. Both the Red wine glasses and the red champagne flutes came from Home Goods.  The red flutes were bought with the Home Goods gift card that I won at Cuisine Kathlin's Let's Dish  give-a-way  at Christmas. The large red rimmed dinner plate is Lenox  "Winter Song"  bought after Christmas two years ago at Tuesday Morning just as they were marked down to 60 percent off.  The red flatware was bought this year at Tuesday morning  (40 percent off).

The napkins were folded and tucked into the wine glasses with a faux geranium and a red heart shaped lollypop from Big Lots.  The reverse side of the napkin matches with a pink lollypop. Huge candy kisses were placed into the sherbert dishes.
