A Valentine Table

This week is Valentine's day, a day made just for love and romance. I hear people say all the time that they don't celebrate it because love should be celebrated everyday. While I agree with the last statement, I don't agree that this special day should not be celebrated and recognized as a day for love and romance.

Maybe it's because I'm a hopeless romantic and a rebel without a cause, you mix those two and you get someone who's very passionate about life.  Valentine's day is very important to me, It's a day to tell the people you love how special they are to you.

I've been married for fifteen years to a wonderful man who inspires me and brings out the best in me.  He's funny, courageous, handsome, smart and I love him like a crazy woman.  The night I met him I felt like the world had stopped spinning and I had finally met my match.  Before I knew it, I was crazy in love with him and there was nothing I could do but marry him so I could love him the rest of my life. 

Before I get all mushy smoochy, I'll move on to today's post.....        
  For today's post I want to share with you my Valentine's day table. 

I'm showcasing my newest creation a Beauty And The Beast Inspired rose inside a glass cloche.  You can find the tutorial for this easy to make and under four dollar glass cloche here
 The dishes are Martha Stewart 

 The flatware is from CSN Stores

Thanks for coming by.  I hope you liked my table. I will also be sharing it with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch

I leave you with two of my all time favorite quotes:

"Love makes the wildest spirit tame, and the tamest spirit wild"
~ Alexis Delp

"Si tou ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime, si je taime, prends garde a toi"
 ~La Habanera (Bizet ~Carmen)


  1. lovely table, Maria!
    Me and my husband had a romantic lunch today! :) It was fun! Just the two of us (the baby was very cooperative and sleep all the time and my daughter was in school), we had only 40 minutes (my husband had to go back work) but it was nice! I agree with you, dates are important! It doesn't have to be a big deal, we can celebrate with little things!

  2. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL, Maria! LOVE your beautiful table! Happy Valentine's Day to you! ((hugs)) ~tina

  3. Very nice table setting. Happy Valentine's Day. sandie♥

  4. I adore the colors of this - unexpected, but still elegant and romantic!
