In the pink Valentine mood

Valentine's Day is for lovers, family, friends, and neighbors.
The tablescape's china was discovered in the city of Yates Center, Kansas this fall. I knew the Shelly China, Sheraton pattern would be placed on my Valentine Day's table. (To discover how special Shelly China is refer to ruthw@antquesandteacups.blogspot.com )
Elegance is the moment you sit and enjoy a dramatic tablescape. Here the sun shines through the lace curtain and blue silk drapes casting a mesmerizing glow on the table.
Softness of light falls on the centerpiece of the many pink embossed Valentines on the rim of the cake stand placed on the lovely platter. 
Wide gold accents the pretty pink teapot, the pink roses and flowers brightens the white center band.  
The beautiful Shelly pattern of flowers are shown on the china's creamer and sugar bowl.
The bright pink candle holders and soft pink candles surround the creamer and sugar.
The candles also encase the oval vegetable bowl.
The full place setting gives a glimpse of the beauty of the china, crystal, and flatware.
A close up of the cream soup and saucer,
the salad plate,
and the dinner plate display the glory of Shelly.
A pink napkin is covered with a napkin crocheted with a dark pink edging. A pink glass napkin ring holds the set together. The flatware with a pink handle also has an embossed medal tip.
The champagne flute is hand blown with a pink heart encircling the bowl on a pink stem.
Tamaian is the etched signature on the flute.
A velvet pink pillow embroidered with sweet sayings ......... 
is tied with the sheer pink ribbon to the back of the chair! 
Have a sip of pink lemonade from the flute and a cup of hot tea with dessert.
Please choose a special tea to serve on this Valentine Day's party in the pink and gold teapot.
 Even the glass stem of the clear crystal candle holder creates the Valentine heart. Have a special day with all of your love ones.

Your table takes me to another time when elegance was a way of life. The china, the crocheted touch on the napkins are lovely and the flatware adds a contemporary flair to a very traditional setting.
