Valentine Decor

A Valentine Tea
Yesterday I picked up a few things to decorate for Valentine's.
I thought I'd show today last year's Valentine decorations for any of you 
that might have missed it last year.
I really loved how my collection of pink doilies look on the table.
The weenies and I had a little tea party with cupcakes and cookies.

I hope I can find where I put all those doilies for this year.

Last week I was browsing through all the pretty transferware at

when I happened upon this pattern...
It's called Chatham by Royal Doulton.
Transferware is one thing I've never collected.
Oh...I have a piece here and there and recently acquired a blue piece but 
it never was something that I couldn't live with out.

Till I saw that plate above!
Wouldn't it make a pretty Valentine setting?

I'm going to start collecting it, I think.
It would be lovely mixed with my rose patterned china.

Is there a happier color than PINK?!?!?! I think not!

Valentines Day is a wonderful reason to bring out all the pink beautifulness!

Love all the pink!! I've never been a fan of doilies, but yours just changed my mind… so pretty! And, I really like the colors in that China. Go for it :)

Your Valentines decor and tea are so pretty! Is that a vintage candy box with the baby blue ribbon around it? It looks so cute. I love the doilies also!

Thanks so much for the sweet shout out! Chatham is one of my favorite patterns. I have a few pieces in my collection. It's soooooo gorgeous!

Your house always looks like Valentines to me! Did you get to eat all those treats yourself?

Pink is my favorite color so I am in love with your Valentine dining room decorations. I DO love that pink transfer plate you showed also. I can't find a huge Valentine wreath that I made last year...hope you find your doilies!

Your decor is fabulous! I love the little banner made of heart doilies and crepe paper. And the piece of furniture it us adorning is stunning. Happy Pink Saturday! Marti
