Love Theme's Cotillion

I bought these dishes years ago from my younger brother.  My Grandmother also had a set.
They are named perfectly for Love.

I also love these wire cloches I found at Ross.
They are so cute, especially with the little bird on top.

It's fun to dress up a buffet area.  Instead of stacking your plates, why create a beautiful vignette for your guests.

 Adding pearls  to the vignette has a touch of elegance.
Of course, it wouldn't be Valentine's without a heart.

Thank you for your visits.  Enjoy your Valentine's with loved ones.

  10. I love the wire cloches, Linda. Love your background, too. Just beautiful, all of it. xo P.S. I recommended you today to another blogging friend. ;-)

  11. HI Linda,
    Pretty vignette. love those wire
    cloches with the lil birdies, so cute.
    blessings for a lovely Valentines day hon, Nellie

  12. Clap, clap, clap! It looks lovely, and I adore those cloches.


  13. You've just reminded me I wanted to try making a cloche from a wire waste basket. If I can find some birds, I can copy cat your pretty ones.

  14. Linda, I love it all! Enjoy the day with your Valentine ;o)

    I just noticed on your side bar that you have the Jura Impressa coffee station. Do you still love it?

  15. Hi Linda, beautiful, I love the way you put all the plates inside the wire cloches,such a brilliant idea
    have a beautiful Valentine days and week

  16. You had me at "Cotillion" ;)... the whimsy and elegance the term invokes could only be surpassed by a cloche. And wired ones. I've been babying the idea of doing a couple - with chicken wire - for Easter.

    So far I had only met the idea at Pinterest; now, Thanks to your Magic, I can dream with the finishing detail - a lovely, rusty preferrably, bird.

    Thank you for sharing!



    P.S. Going to pin this later... on Buffets: not a very big board but your suggestion is too good to pass ahahahah

  17. I like the idea of displaying the dishes under the wire cloches! Very clever!
