Tablescapes & Parties!

Here's our second Valentine table of the season and we'll have one more brunch table to go!  I'm linking to Tablescape Thursdays, Inspiration Friday, the Colors of Love party, the Valentine Party ... and Seasonal Sundays ... so make sure you  click through the buttons on the left to visit all the party posts.    I'm also linking to Bargain Hunting with Laurie's Valentine Party, so click thru to visit her site.  Special thanks to all the hostesses ... for taking their time to provide the perfect ways for us to show off our creativity.

Almost everything on this table came from the grocery store!  Can you believe that the polka dot dishes ... and the champagne glasses came from the supermarket?  The pink glasses are Fostoria ... the little bread and butter plates came from Cracker Barrel .. .and the crystal hearts (that I'll use for salt) are Mikassa, but I bought 2 dozen of them at their outlet store for $1 each!  This is kind of a bargain basement tablescape!

I composed the centerpiece with some cute wooden things from HL, but the rattan standing mailbox and the white basket that holds it all ... came from Goodwill!  It's an eclectic setting ... filling with things I love!
