Valentine....Table and Decor

Welcome again to another Tablescape day!
Please visit our wonderful hostess...
Please come into my kitchen where I have
been slaving over a hot stove all day!

Please help yourself...they are yummy!

I tried helplessly and hopelessly to form some kind of heart with the napkins....this is as good as it gets Darlin'.....big smile.

Thanks so much for coming by!
PS. Thank you for all the kind comments and prayer about my mother being in the
hospital. She is doing great and home now.
She had a horrible blockage.....surgery was scheduled for the next day.
So we prayed.....
right before surgery the Doctor did another X-ray....
couldn't find anything!
Thank you God!

Your table is SO cute. I love your effort in turning the napkin into a heart and I think you did a great job! I like those napkins and the matching runner. Everything is wonderful, my friend! :-)

I love this tablescape. It's so layered and romantic. And the cute wee kitchen is adorable. I'm happy to hear your mother is on the mend.
My mother has good days and bad, and prayers have gotten her through the bad.

It looks like you're all ready for the day of BIG RED! So cute and whimsical -- gosh I didn't know that your mother had been so ill -- I do hope that she'll have a wonderful recovery.

Hi Debbie,

What fabulous news about your dear mother. The power of prayer is GREAT!

I love your wee kitchen and the m&m's. The napkins look too cute.

We didn't get much snow from the last snowfall so ours has been gone. But, Alan was up in South Central Oklahoma today and he said the trees and everything are STILL covered in a thick sheet of ice. As of today there are still approx. 47,000 households or businesses without electricity (and that has been since last Thursday!!!). Now it tries to melt during the day and freezes over during the night again and on the news there were a BUNCH of wrecks this morning because everything was so slippery. It is only about 1 1/2 hours away from us but we LUCKED out and didn't get any of that ice this time. Thank GOODNESS!!♥

Hope you are enjoying your evening.♥

Hi Debbie! Your tablescape is adorable! I wish I would get more into the whole decorating for every holiday but with 3 little ones I don't have time. I'm finally getting back after taking the Christmas stuff down! Thanks for sharing.
