A Little Love in the Kitchen

I set a table in the kitchen for Valentine's Day using white plates and polka dot dishes. I have a lot of red in my kitchen so this tablescape fits right in.

What would Valentine's Day be without hearts and chocolate!

Pretty heart napkins from HG.
Polka dot dishes are also from HG.
Beaded coasters from Ceekay in AZ.

I used this heart shape dish for my centerpiece.

I filled it with hand made paper Chinese fortune cookies.

I used a few different pieces of craft paper and put different sayings in them.

After I glued them I used paper clips to hold them together till they dried.

Thanks for stopping by! Please let me know you stopped so I can return the visit.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Your table looks so pretty. I love all your red & white dishes, & those napkins are perfect & adorable! Making those paper fortune cookies is such a cute idea.

I just read about your granddaughter, & I'm so sorry to hear that she had to go through something like that; but I'm so glad she is doing so much better. I'm absolutely praying for a positive outcome.

I came by to thank you for welcoming me back to blogging and read about Olivia. Praise the Lord that things are going well. Bless all of your hearts. I know how hard it is to see one of your own in pain.
I will stop around by again later to stay updated.

Whoever sits at that beautiful table will surely feel LOVED! The fortune cookies are such a cute idea. I'll have to remember that for next year. This year I'm taking the easy route ... out to dinner :).
Happy Valentine's Day to you and your sweetie.

Your table looks beautiful! And I love the Chinese cookie idea! My hubby loves to do origami and I think this might be a good idea to use a fun thing for my mom's 80th birthday party! Love it! Hope you're having a nice day!

That table is so much of everything I like, from the napkins, to the polka dots, to the glitter from CK!
Love, love, love it!
Happy Valentine's Day!

I love your site.. I wish I was able to decorate for valentines this year though with a surgery last week and we have to pack things for construction starting in our house march 19Th it is going to be a mess. I am going to pin your little valentine notes I love how they are like fortune cookies and my kids will love them for next year. Maybe by then my house will be complete and decorated like yours. Following you.

The combination of red & white is one of the happiest on earth! If you're in a bad mood, red & white is the cure! Very nice! The fortune cookies are a great touch, too! My sister makes them out of fabric. I find it all very fascinating but WAY out of my creative ability!

This is adorable!! Nothing better than red, chocolates, and polka dots!
