Checkered Valentine Tablescape

With Valentines approaching, I wanted to create a Valentine tablescape in the breakfast room. Red tulips are neatly arranged in my red vase.  The red ceiling compliments this color scheme. I love this tablecloth that looks like MK.

I am using Mikasa Parchment Red dinner plates with red and white heart shaped salad plates. Red chargers and red napkins are added.  MC napkin rings from my friend, Liz.

Black dramatic goblets with cute black and white striped straws with a red heart.  Red flatware from Horchow.  Each place setting has a gift bag color coordinated with the tablescape.

Dollar Tree red double hearts hang off the chandelier.

Happy Early Valentines. I shall be posting a pretty in Pink Valentines table too!
Don't forget about linking up to our link party on Sunday.

  1. Elegant and romantic!!

  2. Fabulous Linda. Love the checked tablecloth with the red plates. goblets are perfect for the theme. Gotta love this one.

  3. Very pretty table, love the black checkered table cloth, it makes the red pop.

  4. Stunning! And I love the red ceiling! What a dramatic design!

  5. How pretty, Linda! Sarah & BJ will go crazy over that checkered tablecloth! I have those Mikasa Parchment Red dinner plates & have used them for both Christmas & July 4th. Now I see they'll work nicely for Valentines Day, too. (which would have been our 29th Anniversary) :(
    I'll have to do something special for the grandkidlets to take my mind off it.

  6. This is so cute Linda! Starting with the checkered tablecloth that definitely reminds me of MC! I love all the details like the wine glasses and heart dishes. The tulips make a cute centerpiece and I like the cute gift bags. I need to get going on doing mine!

  7. Oh al the courtly check lovers will simply love this whole tablesetting:)

  8. That black checkered tablecloth sure makes everything POP! Beautiful!

  9. How fun was that one to do? Funny that I'm tweaking mine that is black and white checks, too! Very lovely job!

  10. Hi Linda, Oh I just love this tablescape in the checks of black and white with red. This could move right into my kitchen. LOL Love your designs. Always so inspiring to visit. Thanks for sharing your talents. Have a great weekend. Blessings xo

  11. I think it's time for a party!

  12. Dramatic. Impact. You should be on Cinema Business. What wonderful setting you'd create Dear Linda! This is something worth of an Academy Award.
    I usually don't celebrate Valentine's as it happens in the beggining of Lent. This year it falls on a Sunday and I will play ;)
    If Liz stops by she'll want her napkin rings back so she could play also with the occasion ahahahahah
    Happy Valentine's Sweet Lady. May Love be always a constant in your long and healthy life.

  13. I ❤️ your tablescape, Linda! The checkered cloth does remind me of MC. Of course, all the red you've used is a favorite of mine! Those napkin rings from Liz are so cute! You always set such a pretty table.

  14. That checked tablecloth is a perfect backdrop for the rest of your wonderful table setting. Valentine's Day is our anniversary so it is a good excuse to set a lovely table (unless we go out to dinner which is a treat as well!).

  15. Linda, what a beautiful tablescape. The tablecloth looks so pretty. Love the dishes. Great inspiration! Take care. Maria

  16. This is everything in one - fun, romantic, sexy, and perfectly coordinated! I love the black goblets and I think I need some! Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friend. xoxo

    Beautiful, beautiful!

  18. So beautiful ~ as usual! Of course, I love the black, white and red. Every detail is just perfect!


  19. Your table is so cute and charming---it really puts me in the mood for romance with a little whimsy. Thanks for the ideas!


  20. What a stunning, elegant and romantic Valentine's setting dear Linda! As always you have just the right dishes to create your fabulous tables.
