After many issues - Welcome to my Valentines Tablescape!
I had this idea to go with You've Captured My Heart, Mistake #1. That is turned out to be a bad choice, as one family member commented it looked like my heart was in jail. But it was too late by then, I had already struggled so much with this one- I wasn't about to change it.
I don't think I ever realized how many shades of pink there really are out there! Every time I went to use something - it was a different shade of pink.
I really wanted to go with pink, Mistake #2. I couldn't find a pink table cloth anywhere. Then I couldn't find pink napkins. I bought these beautiful light pink dessert plates that look like doilies thinking they would go with the pale pink dinner plates I already had - Mistake #3. Not only did they not go with my dinner plates at all - they barely show up pink in the photos!!
Not bad for a plastic crochet table cloth!
As many of you wonderful Tablescapers know, things do not always turn out the way you thought them up in your head!! I really envisioned much more color. You can bet my Valentine Tablescape next year will be RED!!
I will be working out of town for the next week and a half, spending Valentine's Day in New York City! So I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and are able to spread some love!
