  1. Your table looks so pretty! I have the same red silverware. It’s been so long, I can’t remember where I got mine from either. We had pizza and red velvet cake for dinner last night. I hope you had a nice Valentine’s Day!

  2. There is something special about red and white together that is so appealing. The dishes with the red polka dots are wonderful!! Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!

  3. What a pretty tablescape for two, Brenda. I used to have those same red glasses but rarely used them, so I sold them on consignment to one of my favorite shops. Now that I see them again on your blog, I wish I still had them. Oh, well!

    I know what you mean about cats knocking things over or off tables…my cats did that when they were young. Once they get older, they stop doing that.

  4. I LOVE the mix of red and white patterns, it looks fabulous. I like mixing patterns of similar colors too, it adds some pop when you have generally neutral backgrounds (wall color) and furniture (sofas and chairs). The red and white looks beautiful against the light finish on your dining table and stands out from the surroundings, but not too “loud.” The red pitcher is beautiful, it was worth the $15 you paid.

  5. A pretty tablescape, Brenda. Happy Valentine’s Day to you! May Love rule and heal our broken hearts and our fractured society.

  6. You are a great interior decorator, Brenda!! My mom would have loved your ideas using red…in her mind, the ONLY great color!! Here is your laugh for the day. Went to do grocery shopping today (meant to go yesterday but it did not work out). My oh my, I have never ever seen so many men in the store at the same time, mostly buying flowers. Hubby was waiting in the car, astounded at what he saw and began counting how many men with flowers left the store. He counted 40 of them the short time I was in there. Must be a southern thing. He texted me to get myself some flowers (he cannot walk well enough to go into most places). I am not into flowers and was already checked out when he texted me. But you know what? I have been buying BOOKS…THAT is what I truly love…and some of them came this week!! 😉 We got engaged 51 yrs ago today. But I HATE eating out on holidays cause never good food or service those days, so I am cooking us something tonight…probably Pizza for him and I have been dying for some Okonomyaki!! Hope you are having a nice day too!!!

  7. Your table setting for two looks beautiful and inviting. You have such a knack and talent.
    I would love to have that red and white set of dishes. Like you, red is my favorite color. And, that red pitcher is wonderful.
    Happy Valentine’s Day, Brenda!

  8. Love red, yellow and white! So full of life and cheerful. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Happy happy Valentine’s Day to you and Ivy and all the subscribers!💖🥰💖

  9. Very pretty setting. Love the red pitcher. Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you for all you do all year long in bringing us lovely and interesting posts.

  10. Simple and elegant. Such a beautiful tablescape. Happy Valentines, Brenda.

  11. Your valentine table is lovely Brenda. I am glad you didn’t leave the red pitcher behind, it looks worth far more than you paid for it.

    We will just have supper as usual but I could make a veggie stir-fry with pasta and tomato sauce. I am afraid the sauce will be the only red thing on the table.

  12. Happy Valentine’s Day❣️. The red pitcher is a treasure❤️

  13. Happy Valentine’s Day to you! Love your red and white dishes! Red has been my favorite for ever. I don’t comment often but your blog is one of two I have to read daily. Really enjoy the Saturday blogs. I can half the day perusing them.

  14. Very pretty table setting Brenda!! ❤️
    Will you actually use them today?
    Spaghetti 🍝 would look great on them ,,,,, perfect 🥰 matching colors!!!
    We are having take out lunch/dinner combo from one of our favorite restaurants.
    Not until later ,,,,, 2 or 3 p.m.
    Should be easier on us ordering ahead of a dinner rush.
    Have a great day Brenda!
    Maybe visit with your daughters.

  15. You too Brenda…looks very sweet…especially the hearts on the plates💝

  16. Love, love your Valentine table, Brenda. Adding the stuffed hearts makes it very special, and the red pitcher is the “real heart” of the table. Lovely!!!!!
