Must Have Flowers! Vintage French Valentine's Day Tablescape

Happy Tuesday, Friends! Welcome to the Valentine's Day Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by my dear friend, Rita from Panoply. In honor of the occasion, I'm embracing all things floral from thrifted vintage French plates to my blooming dress form and more! Please join me and 15 blogging friends for lovely table inspiration

If you've hopped over from visiting Jenna at The Painted Apron,  wasn't her rosy table lovely? When I scored these delicate floral plates from Goodwill, I knew they would be perfect for my Valentine's Day table. The bespoke sequined fascinator above and the lux velvet runner are previous estate sale finds. (TIP: For those who are interested in shopping this look, I have included pink links for similar items.)

I layered the French Arcopal Florentine plates with doily-inspired chargers and added pretty pink stemware from my thrifted collection.

This thrifted bud vase stand was recently reimagined by swapping the original generic vases with milk glass I've collected from thrift stores--stay tuned for more details about this project in a few weeks!

  2. Cecilia I love your table and your overhead shot is just beautiful. The soft pinks of the tulips and other flowers are perfect as are the plates and table runner. It is so romantic. Your lace trimmed napkins and pretty handmade toile hearts complete your look. How clever to use the bud vase holder in a new way by using your milk glass containers. I'm looking forward to your sharing that process in the future. I love blog hopping with you and this group as there are always inspirational ideas. Have a Blessed and warm week and eat a piece of chocolate for me. Hugs.

  4. This is beautiful Cecilia! I love the velvet runner! Your color palette is so pretty with the soft pinks, white and gold. The milk glass bud vases with tulips in your stand look so pretty and I love the sweet cupid holding a Valentine. You've tied in your mantel in such a lovely way and I love the fascinator with the vintage Valentine and flowers. Everything is sooo pretty!

  6. Ooh, Cecilia, I LOVE your pink and white themed tablescape! How pretty! Those Arcopal dishes are beautiful, and swapping out the generic glass vases for your milk glass a great touch. I love your vintage runner (so rich!) and fascinator (so French!), and like the link you've provided for the runner you found, but the fascinator you found links back to runner again. I wanted to see what you found! One of my sisters always picks vintage hats when we shop together (and we pick for her when we're not together). I love vintage hats, and they always make me model them. Yours in this post is the kind of hat I gravitate toward - a more petite look that suits me. Very lovely tablescape. Thank you for sharing your love of vintage and these new, delightful finds!

  7. Pretty Pinks! My mother had a nice collection of milk glass that one of my nieces has now. You have some good pieces, and I like the way you have used them within the vase holder. Your table runner and the vintage plates are lovely. Beautiful table, Cecilia. Happy Valentine's Day!

  8. Oh my gosh your bud vase idea is genius! Now I'm going to be on the lookout for something similar I can fill with my milk glass bud vase collection, hopefully in time for my summertime garden flowers! xo Kathleen

The tulips are gorgeous. Very beautiful table. I was a delight hopping with you and wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

  16. Cecilia, your charming table is sweetly perfect for Valentine's Day! I agree that you must have flowers for this special day -- and as many other days as possible. The vintage table runner is beautiful and the plates are lovely. I liked how you revamped the bud vase centerpiece -- it gives it more presence. Have a happy Valentine's Day filled with flowers!

  18. Cecilia your table is so feminine and romantic. It is right up my lane! Those plates were such a great find, and look like they were made to be atop those lace chargers. I love the tulips in the milk glass vases. Such a simple and classic arrangement that really makes a statement!
