A Card, A Table, Roses and Paper

Valentine's Day celebration is a-comin'...
nothin' says love like a box of chocolates and a beautiful card...vintage card representing Whitney Candy Company...

(wikipedia, Whitney Valentine, 1887; Esther Howland sold her New England Valentine Company to the George C. Whitney Company in 1881)

Symbol of love...the valentine...
(wikipedia, Valentine's Day postcard, circa 1910)

Special handwritten notes...
(Handwritten poem, "To Susanna" dated Valentine's Day, 1850 (Cork, Ireland)

No vintage cards here...(insert sad face) but I did want to do something special! Sooooo
In honor of the day I accepted the challenge to set a festive table again using paper products!  Earlier I created a tablescape using paper products to celebrate MARDI GRAS!  You may go to the link and read.
A trip to the Dollar Tree to pick up the necessary paper goods...

Then a quick stop by the grocery to grab a bunch of flowers...( because nothin' says love like roses!)

Now to work I go...

I decided to set up a dessert table for the hubby and I on the porch using my 1800s table we rescued from my great-grands' home...
Notice the square nails used...



For me to create using the paper products is fun and makes a festive table...


How about you?  Are you planning a fun Valentine's Day?

See ya down the junkin' road!!

So sweet, Jan. One of these days I'm going to do a "Jan challenge"...a paper tablescape. I think it is awesome!

Your antique table is a wonderful treasure.
