Tablescaping with Love in Mind

*


Good Evening Sweet Friends
*
Hope you have had a delightful day???
*
Since my last posts have been rather lengthy I decided
to just provide you with some visual fun for today!
*
LOVE . LOVE  . LOVE

*
These are the pics from our earlyValentine's Day Celebration!
*
And this was the first time we christened our new dishes
as well,  so that was fun too!!
*
ALL YOU NEED
*
IS
*
LOVE
*
ALL YOU NEED
*
*
IS
*
This is one side
*
LOVE . LOVE
*
*
This is the other!
I had a small vase with a cluster of white roses and I just
stuck in the container and stuck the red roses all around it.
I usually have a larger centerpc. just to keep on the table,
  but when we have dinner there I think it is important
to have a lower centerpiece so that it doesn't impede
conversation, nothing worse that having to fight with
something to see and talk with the person across
from you.
*
LOVE
*
IS
*
Got the floral container and 2 of these cute lil birds
last week at Michaels, all of $10.00.
I just love them. You know how much I like white!
*
ALL
*
YOU
*
NEED
*
LOVE

*

*
I truly love setting a pretty table because I want
my Family to feel Special,  and I also want Friends
and others who come into our home to feel a
sense of Specialness as well!  Because life & people
 can sometimes make us feel anything but.........Special!
So I think we all need to feel Special at times.
*
LOVE
*
*
I just love these lil hearts....
I have lil stars and lil autumn leaves as well,  they just
had a lil touch of glitz and whimsy to the table.
*
LOVE
*
*
Found these adorable heart dishes for a dollar, so I got
2 and I got white and figured I could use them anytime.
They had red and I kinda wish I would have gotten at 
least one red,  but oh well!!
*
ALL
*
*
YOU
*
*
Hubby and I didn't exchange our cards until Valentine's Day!
*
NEED IS
*
*
LOVE  ~  LOVE  ~  LOVE
The Beatles song
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well,  that was our table set with Love....
for my 3 favorite Valentines in all the world!!
*
Hubby and I had planned to take some pics
of everyone, camera was right on the breakfast
bar as always, and Never thought about again
until they all left!!  lol
*
We are so forgetful........
Course, can't say we don't enjoy the moment
cause we DO!  A lil too much I think!! lol
*
Can't really speak about Love and leave this out!
*
"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude,
it is not self seeking.  It is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not
delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.  It always
protects, always trusts, always hopes, always
perseveres.  Love never fails."
*
1 Corinthians 13:4-8




I am participating in Tablescape Thursday with Susan,
at Between naps on the Porch..........
So go on over and see all the creative things
other ladies have done.  It's a visual treat!!










Have a Blessed Evening 
Sweet Friends,
Love N' Hugs,
Nellie

Nellie, you sure held out a long time before using your new dishes. They are so pretty! Everything looks so festive and everyone had to be feelin' the love. Good one.

Have a wonderful day over there in Florida.

XOXO Bonbon

Yes, I love your table! But more importantly I love how you make it pretty and special for just your family. I never do things like this for the most important people in my life. It's been so hard lately. When hubby was home, there was so much going on that eating dinner together with the kids was getting difficult.

Right before he left the kids had a delay opening in school and I made a huge breakfast and we all sat and ate and it was so much fun. I need to make things special for them more on a regular basis.

Thanks for the inspiration!
