Valentine’s Day Table 2019

We are one week away from the day of love! Are you ready? Do you celebrate really? Hubby and I don’t do a lot, a small gesture to each other but nothing big. We haven’t gone out ON Valentine’s Day but maybe once or twice our whole married life, because when we did it was crazy crowded and not that much fun. We can go out to dinner any time and it will be just as special. But, I do sometimes set a pretty table for our family and make a special dinner. I have even been known to make everyone dress up for dinner. 🙂 I’m sharing with you today another simple tablescape that might inspire you to do the same!
