Well, the day has arrived when we think about pink, red and chocolate! I decided to do something different this year and set my table for brunch. I found the polka dot egg cups in Florida at Christmas and I used them as the inspiration for my table. I don't actually have a lot of Valentine decorations, so I'm sure you have seen most of these things on other tables I have done.
I actually had white coffee mugs on the table and I decided to get a little "tacky" and put a Valentine mug at each place setting. After all, Valentine's Day is a fun holiday.
Both plates are from Crate and Barrel, paired with sterling flatware. I rolled the napkins into rosettes and placed them in the egg cups.
I really wanted to show you my beautiful new tablecloth (the napkins actually match, you just can't tell with them rolled). It was a Christmas gift from my Dad. He bought it on some island when he took a cruise in last fall. The photos really just don't do it justice. It is gorgeous and would have looked even better if I hadn't been too lazy to go get the leaf for the table!
I've had this cocoa pitcher for many years.
It wouldn't be breakfast without a little cocoa...
...and of course, heart shaped marshmallows.
I used small cordial stemware as juice glasses. I get a kick out of mixing the sterling and crystal with the silly coffee mugs. I think you should always have a little something unexpected on the table.
I did put pink and red candles on the table,
but I'm not sure they were needed for brunch.
This photo is to show you just how lovely the tablecloth is.
As I pointed out, it would be even prettier if I had made the table larger.
