Romance & Red Roses Reign on Sweetheart Table

Romance & Red Roses Reign on Sweetheart Table

Valentines-day-red-roses-hearts-tablesetting

For Valentines Day this year, I’ve styled a sweetheart table that’s decorated with classic symbols of the holiday — red hearts and roses.

Accompanying the table setting is a queenly centerpiece with a beautifully decorated chandelier overhead.

I’ve carried the theme to the nearby kitchen island, with a coordinating topiary and individual place settings on the bar. There’s even a heart-shaped wreath hanging on the door.

And what’s a sweetheart table without napkins folded in the shape of a heart? Because not only am I ever the Queen of Theme and Debbee, but also of Hearts this Valentine’s Day, lol!

20 Sweet Valentines Day Ideas for Table, Crafts & Decor

Today, I’m sharing a variety of heartwarming Valentines Day ideas that celebrate love and friendship.

vintage-prom-picture-valentines-day-ideas

It’s taken me awhile to get back to blogging while regrouping after Christmas, doing physical therapy twice daily, slowly resuming normal activities, and trying to catch up on household chores.

After revisiting Favorite, Most Popular Posts of 2020, I was looking forward to the new year with hope and promise.

But then, the violence and attack on our democracy Jan 6th shattered that view. It felt like a nightmare instead of reality, and undermined any sense of optimism for 2021. I was horrified, scared, deeply depressed and angry. How about you? A sense of paralysis set in for several weeks, with no motivation to do anything that wasn’t necessary — until the inauguration helped to lift my spirits.

And like song says, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.” Now more than ever! So join me friends, for a roundup of Valentines Day ideas, along with a few new ways to celebrate love and friendship.

In the Pink Valentines Day Table

In the Pink Valentines Day Table

It’s time for the first tablescape hop of 2020, and I’ve set a pink Valentines Day table and island bar in the open kitchen.

I’ve also incorporated a few sweet Scottie dog accents. They elicit many happy memories of Fibber McGee, My Fuzzy Funny Valentine.

Our hostess, Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate, has changed the scheduling for tablescape hops. Previously, the weeklong format ran Monday through Friday, with four to five new tables each day. Starting with this Valentines Day Tablescape Hop, all stylists publish their posts on the same day.

I like the change and hope you will too? No longer will it be necessary to check back throughout the week. Instead, you can hop to your heart’s content via links at the bottom.

If you’re new to Debbee’s Buzz, or coming from Liz’s Be Mine Table, a warm welcome! Hope you find a sweet idea or two for your own Valentines Day table.

Sweet Scottie Dog: My Fuzzy Funny Valentine

Sweet Scottie Dog: My Fuzzy Funny Valentine

This isn’t the Valentine’s Day theme post I planned to send out last Saturday morning. It wasn’t even a subject I had on the blog calendar. But, life interruptus. Early last week, my sweet Scottie dog got very sick and required major abdominal surgery.

The good news is, that it looks like Fibber is going to be okay. We brought him home Saturday afternoon. But, it will be a long three to four week care and recovery period.

I don’t often mention Fibber, and have only shared a couple of pictures. Most followers are primarily interested in tablescapes, holiday decorations, and party posts, rather than my day-to-day musings.

And don’t we all think our kids and pets are the cutest, smartest, and most wonderful on the planet? Because, let me bee clear — mine are! I will be completely shameless when I have grandchildren. People will cross the street to avoid my bragging or being subjected to endless photos LOL!

While Valentine’s Day is primarily about romance, it’s also about the other loving and caring relationships in our lives. Today, I’m marking the occasion by celebrating my own fuzzy, funny Valentine.

Meet Me at the Eiffel Tower Table Valentine

Meet Me at the Eiffel Tower Table Valentine

Bonjour mon amis! What could be more fabulous than to have a seat at an Eiffel Tower table on Valentine’s Day in Paris; the City of Light and Love?

I’ve been fortunate to eat dinner there twice. First, was with my husband early in our marriage. While vacationing in Paris a decade plus later, we took our then adolescent sons to dine at an Eiffel Tower table.

There are several dinning establishments inside the Eiffel Tower; including champagne and macaroon bars.

Popular with families and for its incredible view over Paris, is 58 Tour Eiffel. Legendary restaurant and triple Michelin-star, Le Jules Verne, is undergoing a facelift and will reopen in the spring. A truly magical experience in an iconic setting.

My Eiffel Tower table is in a much more modest setting — I’ve swapped Paris for Pittsburgh!
