Pretty Valentine's Day Tablescape

One of the things I love about Valentine's Day is the use of the color pink.  Pink is one of my favorite colors to wear so I am happy to see it widely used!

I made this pretty Valentine's day tablescape.  I would have set it up for a table for two for my husband and I... but it looked so silly with only two place settings on such a big table I set it up for four just for looks.

A look during the daytime.  I used some vintage Valentine's Day printouts I found online.  The heart cups my mother-in-law gave us at our rehearsal dinner!



The heart shaped candle holders I purchased from Crate and Barrel years ago. One of my first house decorating purchases in college actually!

The mercury glass candle holders are lined with pink on the inside and I just LOVE them. I LOVED them so much in fact that they were used to decorate the tables at my wedding!!

Here I light the candles... do you see why I love the pink mercury glass candles now?!  Don't you just love the glow they create??  They created such a soft romantic glow at my wedding.  I find it appropriate to pull them out on Valentine's Day, not only for the color but for memories!


Here I light the other candles too.  It's so pretty.

oooh, ahhh...

One final shot. Too bad the printable Valentine's didn't show up too well on the camera.

Now for the cute Valentine's printables...
The cherub holding the hearts is actually a printable bookmark I found here

Do you have any tablescapes for Valentine's Day? I'd love to see them!
