Ooh La La!

Valentine is almost here, so we are partying once again.  We have another dinner party planned for Valentine's evening.  This table is for fun!  The dinner on Valentine is for 8 people.
I will also be using the same French inspired dishes, Les Etoiles , which means, The Stars.

I am using black, white and of course a daring red to liven things up.  Romance is definitely a red color. I started with the gorgeous red tablecloth I bought from Linen Table Cloth.
Since the plates are square, I am using red square charger plates.  The dishes are French themed.

An added little gift with red, black and white.

Adding more ambiance with the tall mercury candle holders and a vase with the white rose ball
I found these at Home Goods..

Black and white striped napkins with the black and white MacKenzie-Childs napkin rings, Liz  from Infuse With Liz gave me.

Cream flatware...I may have to add black to my collection.  Look out hubby! It's a good thing, we have lots of added storage in the new remodeled laundry room.

I love dressing the chandelier.

I tied my red sashes to the back of each chair.

Have you any plans for Valentine's day?  Please share.

I am linking up with the following parties:

Amaze me Monday @ Dwelling- The Heart of Your Home

  6. Beautiful as always! Love the photography!

  7. Ok, I am going to try and comment and then I am going to follow up with an email because I seem to be having problems with comments!
    I love the red tablecloth! I was considering that one and seeing it - I am in love! That would be so great for Christmas too. Your MC napkin rings are wonderful and they go so well with the punch that the napkins give! I am in love with your red ceiling! How fabulous is that?! We had our big family dinner last night which I will post and then a friend dinner on Wed. It is Valentine's Week around here!

  8. What a fun table setting! I love a good French theme. Our anniversary just happens to be on Valentine's day so it is always a special day for us.

  9. What a pretty table and I love those French inspired dishes. Beautiful. Cathy

  10. What a festive table! I especially like those mercury candle sticks and vase. I want something like those for a shelf I recently put up in my living room. I almost bought a lamp that had a mercury base but a fellow shopper beside me told me that mercury would be going out of style soon..lol. I listened to her and ended up buying a crystal lamp. ( I WILL get mercury candle sticks though).

  11. Very romantic! Love the heart that you added to the napkin rings. We'll be celebrating our anniversary on Valentine's Day. Love the French theme!

  12. Ooh la la is right, Linda! Your ❤️ Table is stunning, including your chandelier. That pretty table cloth just sets the mood for a romantic theme.

  13. Wow, love those dishes! I am really missing home goods lately...I may have to take a trip out there today.

    Gorgeous table!!

  15. So festive. It's lovely. I think you did a great job.

  16. Gorgeous!! Romantic, warm and inviting. The MC napkin rings are fabulous, how sweet of Liz! We are going out Friday night so that it won't be so crowded, plus it will be a full menu! Love the chandelier decorations too! I can't believe I never noticed that fabulous RED ceiling!!! Have a beautiful Valentines with friends.

  17. This is so fun, Linda How do you decorate the chandelier? I envision you balancing precariously on the table while draping all your gorgeous decorations - be careful, WW! lol.
    I love the French dishes and so appropriate as they are the masters of romance! I can hardly wait to hear about your menu.
    I will call this week but I'm the one with the flu this time so it may be closer to the end of the week. I wish I was coming to your gorgeous dinner party

  18. Hi Linda, your table settings are always so inspiring and beautiful. Your accents and details make everything so perfect. Love your dishes and the color theme. The hearts hanging from the chandy is so chic. Your dinner guests will be pampered by this special table setting. We are planning to go to dinner.
