Rose Fold Napkins on A Red Valentine Tablescape

I have been working on my red Valentine tablescape and now it is ready. It really didn't take long to set; taking the pictures seemed to take me a lot longer. You know how we worry about taking the right shots for our tablescapes. 

I wanted to use doilies on the table so I bought red ones and white ones. My napkins are folded in a Rose fold, I'll give you a link below to a tutorial (easy). The trinket boxes were inexpensive and I thought they added a nice touch sitting in the bowls.

The red goblets were a gift from my Dad. 

Those of you who often visit my blog know I love Peggy Karr plates so, of course, I wanted to add my Peggy Karr Hearts plate to the table. Peggy is an American artist who works with fused glass.

I added a little chocolate candy to the table and there is a special little gift box in the center with a gift for my husband. 

My husband gave me the black candelabra for a Christmas gift. I really like it with my Valentine table.

I used a white floral arrangement in my red Fitz and Floyd vase and added it to my bread rack in the kitchen.

Now a few votive candles and the mood is set.

Here is a link for a tutorial on the Rose fold, it is pretty easy. Thanks for stopping by to see my Red Valentine Tablescape - Judy.

Great red and white Table! I enjoyed you sharing where your lovely china and crystal were from! The sweet Valentine boxes were something I picked up, too. The idea of placing the box inside the rose fold of you red napkin is very clever! I hope you don't mind if I keep this idea for future use. Thanks for sharing you wonderful talent for table arrangements! Happy Tablescaping! Pam
