Table for two!!

Well, the world seems to be filled with pink and red at the moment so I thought I would join the Valentine train! Finally, I have found some lovely red and white spotted plates. I love them and I’m sure they will be used over and over. I set up a small table for two and covered it with a white cloth. After setting everything up I thought the table still looked like it needed ‘something’. I finally decided to add a piece of red and white toile fabric to one corner. To me, toile is such a romantic fabric so it fitted in just right. Everything else was found around the farm house as I am now home from holidays. Work tomorrow!!! Not sure how I’ll make it through the whole day without a nanna nap though!
Happy Monday!!

PS I've had a few people enquire where I purchased this gorgeous spotty dinnerware...I bought the dinner plate and salad plate from our main supermarket, Woolworths, here in Australia and the dessert plate (Maxwell & Williams) is part of a set I have had for a while.

I love your red and white polka dot plates!!! They are hard to find! Where did you get yours? The toile looks so cute draped in the corner like that! Clever!

Perfect red and white post for Valentine's Day. The red and white polka dot tea mugs are sweet! The whole table setting looks fresh and clean.

I'm a sucker for dots-love those plates. I also love how you've folded back the tablecloth for a cozy table for two.

Nothing says Valentine's better than a LOVE sign! Your tablescape is wonderful for a tete de tete! The sweet polkadot plates are just right for your red and white theme. I love how you incorporated the toile piece at an angle what a creative idea. Very Pretty!

Cute,cute,cute! I am a fool for polka dots so I love your plates. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Savvy Southern Style.

Woolworth's is the name of a supermarket there? It used to be the name of a chain of "five-and-dime" stores here in the U.S. that finally folded in the 1990s. I Googled it, and I see there is no connection between the two, but it's just so interesting that the name is the same! Very pretty red & white! I'm glad you were able to find plates you like!!! Have a beautiful Valentine's Day, Suzy!

Thanks for sharing the moment with us.

Lulu said...

Your red and white polka dots would work for me any time. Funny, the thought just occurred to me that as much as I like red, I have very little that goes on the table!
