Tablescape Thursday – a little romance


Ok – so I am still celebrating Valentine’s Day. I love to set the table. I usually like to keep it set and then eat out on the lanai but it has been too cold down here. So we carefully move the settings  and eat on “dishwasher” dishes and then move them back!

We didn’t do roses this year because they tripled in price!!! The gerbera daisies worked just fine!


Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts Tablescape Thursday each week and we all get to play dishes. Stop by and see the other dish displays!

I had ordered salad plates which arrived after Valentine’s Day so I redid the table and changed things slightly.


I like mixing up the fabrics – sort of like a quilt effect.

I found edible flowers at Fresh Market so they went on top of the spring greens, Roquefort cheese and campari tomatoes. Red wine vinegar and olive oil completed the salad.


Red dinner plates Vietri, Salad plates, placemats, tablecloth from Williams Sonoma, Wood chargers, flatware, napkins and candlesticks from Pottery Barn.

Thank you for stopping by. If you have time I would love a comment!

Hi Carol

That is a lovely bright table with the Gerbera's.
The edible flowers certainly liven up the salad, what did they taste like?

See you Friday at the Cloche party?

Very best wishes, Jackie in UK.

Your table, dishes, etc all beautiful but the salad is to die for. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I don't think I could eat it right away. I would have to just admire it for some time. MMMMMMM!MM

Hi me again, What is a lanai please? Jackie.

Carol, thank you so much for visiting and leaving a sweet comment for us! Allie is so thrilled to read them and it helps us find wonderful new blogs (and friends). Your table is beautiful and I have to tell you I LOVE the daisies-great touch! My son is in southern Florida and it HAS been a strange weather year, hasn't it?
xoxo Pattie and Allie

Your daisies or gerbera make the table stunning.

Love the greeny sallad to §;-)

Carol, lovely setting! I'm with you on the flowers. I bought some for valentines, paid triple the price, and they didn't last three days.

I just love your tablescape. I like the mix of patterns and textures and the daisies just make the whole look come together!! You have a real talent here. Love it! :-)

The choice of gerbera was a good one....I love their bright 'crayon colors' and they do last longer than roses....Your table looks very happy and bright. Lovely!
