Isn't it Romantic?

I've been crafting Valentine gifts this week and with that holiday swirling in my head I came up with a
"Valentine night-cap for two"
as my Tablescape Thursday today.

OOPS! Pretend there is a second chair here.

Another Valentine Picture-card I made.

I decorated the glasses too...a new craft I've added to my repertoire with my cricut and vinyl.
If you ever have a need for monogramming
let me know! I'm working on wall word decals too.
I'm really excited about all of the new possibilities!

The wine opener and bottle stop were Christmas gifts
 from my niece Nicki. I just love the red!
My favorite accent color in my green kitchen!
Thanks, Nicki!

Great minds think alike! I bought this wine stopper for myself about a year ago....

and this is the one from my niece!
I'm telling you, there is some kind of telepathy
going on and we are not even blood related!

The pillow was a clearance purchase from
Target a couple years ago.

$12 for the pair and you can have them customized
 with your own names too!

Another Valentine picture-card.
 One more to go, then I'm on to plates and travel mugs!

I love this one! The fortunes are on a stamp and
some of the fortunes are:
"you are going to marry sooner than you expect"
"you have been loved"
and "guests coming"
Sounds like a wedding is in the near future to me!

I love the "you" and "me" champagne flutes, such a sweet idea... and for so much more than Valentine's Day!

Thank you Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

  1. Lovely post and I am drolling of your sweet and simple way of doing those fab stuffs you have.

    Great job.

  2. Dena, This is such a great idea. I'm thinking of actually doing this on a night table for my husband and me. Your little romantic table is full of "love"ly ideas. The personalized glasses are so creative.
    The little card in the frame is a wonderful idea!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. So cute! I have had Valentines on my mind too. I love your ideas!

    That romantic table is so sweet!


  4. So cute..I love the wine glasses! :)

  5. Sweet wine glasses -- can't believe that Valentine's is just around the corner!

  6. Very pretty, Dena! So pretty, and plenty of time for someone to be inspired by your tablescape.

  7. Such a romantic setting you've made. Love the cute postcard and the initialed glasses. I haven't figured out how to do the vinyl quite yet on my Cricut. You amaze me with all your good posts. How do you find time and work too? I need to start thinking abo9ut Valentines Day too. Have a great day!

  8. How clever...I don't really decorate for Valentine's Day, but now that I blog...well, you know.


  9. Very cute. I love, love the little postcard. Darling tablescape for 2!

  10. Lovely setting Dena, gets us all in the mood for next month!
    And you are making me want a Cricut machine!!!

  11. Dena, sweet table for two. Seems to be a theme this week. I enjoyed seeing all your creations. The flutes are a clever idea. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah

  12. Super cute! I love your little V-day gifts!


  13. OMG, I just saw Shoppes on Main! Are you from Fuquay? My parents live there, and I was just there the week before Christmas. I so miss Guardian Angel Thrift store. I lived near there (in Raleigh, technically) until 2006. Now, I'm @ Lake Norman. Your tablescape is cool.

  14. What a great job Dena! It looks wonderful!! You are way ahead of me ;)

  15. Cute post, love your cozy little wine table.

  16. You're really thinking ahead! What a lovely table -- those glasses are just the cutest!
