Today I’s setting up a quick and easy table for Valentine’s Day! I didn’t want to purchase anything new, plus I like the things I already own. So what I came up with was a simple farmhouse style table, with vintage quilt and all.
My Valentine’s table consists of a vintage red and white quilt and a combination of mason jars, red flatware, and white dinner plates. Everyone has these simple items in their kitchen and Valentines day doesn’t have to be fancy.
I know you have all heard me say over and over again that I decorate with what I already have, and it’s true. I just cant comprehend buy new all the time and then having to find a place to store all that stuff.
For me storing all those things seems like a waste of space, I would rather use the same items over again to make my table Valentine’s ready.
The red and white vintage quilt was picked up last summer while traveling the US12 garage sales. It was raining hard and the lady just wanted to get rid of things. I got such a great bargain I couldn’t pass it up.
Nothing says farmhouse Valentine like mason jars and
And for a little pop of color the blue jars do the trick.
As a charger I am using my Target off white dinner plates and the white bowl and dinner plate are Corelle, yes I said Corelle. Hope it’s not to tacky, but I like the look.
The salad plates are recycled glass and have a blue tint to them, just like the mason jars. And to keep it all together I put it in a white serving dish along with the gravy boat.
The blue mason jars are resting in my bread server and I dropped tea lights into them for a little glow.
You can see the tea lights better here.
I am ready for a farmhouse Valentine’s dinner now.
To bad I will also be doing the cooking.
