Pink Depression Glass & A Romantic Table For Two

February 07, 2018
Welcome to day 4 of the second annual Romantic Valentine's Tablescape Blog Hop, where twenty bloggers have joined together to share their artistic interpretation of this sweet Holiday theme. All of the links to these creative bloggers are at the end of this post and truly there is something for everyone! Today I am happy to be sharing my Pink Depression Glass and my romantic table for two Valentine tablescape.



This inspiring event would not be possible without our talented friend Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate who brings this group together throughout the year.

Chloe welcomes individuals such as myself that love to do many things; crafting, gardening and decorating. I am not a professional decorator by any means. I just know that I have loved making my home feel and look welcoming since I was a young woman. My first whirl at decorating was when I was a kid and I made crepe paper curtains. So I guess what I am trying to say is this. Do what you love with passion and whether it is sewing, gardening, decorating or whatever just go for it, be authentic and be you!



Gosh time has flown by so quickly. Seems like we went to bed one night and woke up empty nesters! Throughout the year there are holidays that we celebrate without family around. However, I still enjoy decorating and I hope and pray that I always will! I view the holidays as a way for my husband and I to enjoy our time together as well as appreciate treasures of the past (many of these treasures are from the women in our family.) I lovingly bring out various China patterns, silver, mementos and linens while remembering the stories behind many of them. Last year I created this fun light and bright Valentine Table.



These pink depression glass plates were my Mother's and they are the anchor for my color choices for this Valentine tablescape...and of course I truly love anything that has a pink, blush, or rose tint!

For this Valentine tablescape I knew I wanted to keep it feminine. I also used these three key components to build upon. This simple outline helps to keep me on track, otherwise I wander.


  1. Colors(Pink, white, gold, green)
  2. Theme (Valentine)
  3. Centerpiece (Birdcage)


I layered the two depression plates on top of one another, then added the white birdcage on top of them. This added color, height and interest to the table. Of course because I do adore flowers, I added bouquets, garland and greenery too.



These rose tinted Mikasa wine goblets were a wedding gift from a friend and strangely enough I haven't broken one of them! I am sure I have just jinxed myself...



I love a romantic dinner with soft music, plenty of candles glowing along with a few twinkling lights tucked under the gold mesh table runner. Love twinkle lights!



China Noritake-Savanah (My Mother's)



I shopped the Wedding department at Hobby Lobby and that is where I found these white heart floating candles and they were only 99 cents a piece!



I wanted to dress up this birdcage so I added some narrow wire edged ribbon and a pearl necklace.



Seems every Valentine party should have a few nostalgic Valentines!



Not sure what our menu will be just yet.



But I do know what we will be having for dessert! Homemade dark chocolate truffles. Recipe will be shared next week! However if you are in need of candy recipe for this weekend try this crockpot candy.

  1. Your table exudes romance with such a lovely ambience. I especially like your bird cage centerpiece embellished with pearls and ribbon surrounded by flowers and candles! I'm loving your plate stack with your mother's sweet china, scalloped chargers, reticulated salad plates and your wedding gift goblets! Your gold runner and cute whimsical candles bring everything together beautifully. Your homemade truffles are impressive! Lovely table.

  3. Jemma, what a pretty table! Those depression glass plates in the basketweave look gorgeous on top of a dinner plate! I love collecting pretty tableware, but what a gift to have things passed down like you having in your mother's pretty china. You've put your craft prowess to work on the centerpiece, and it has me wanting to see spring in a good way. Welcome to the hop, and it's a pleasure to share your company! Oh, and that crockpot candy? I made it during the holidays, and it was quite addictive!

  9. I love all of this Jemma! I like how you did the center arrangement with the gold fabric as your base. The bird cage is so sweet and I love that you included the sentiment of dishes that were your mothers. Those wine glasses are so pretty and I especially like how you did the groupings on the plates with the old fashioned cards and hearts. Those dark truffles look way too good! Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

  20. Beautiful sweet friend. The Depression plates are lovely and it makes it more special, because they were your Mothers. The birdcage is wonderful. Floating candles and twinkles make it so romantic. Love the Valentines at each setting. Who doesn't love homemade truffles? A pleasure to share this romantic blog hop with you. xo

  21. Your depression glass is perfection, and the pinks are perfect for a valentine's day theme. I'm a sucker for pretty florals, so you've captured my attention with your beautiful plates. Lovely touring with you! Happy Vday!

  23. Jemma, oh so pretty. Love that bird cage. The depression glass is so pretty and what a wonderful item to use on your table. What a treasure to have from your mom. Love all the flowers you used in different ways.

  24. Hi Jemma,
    I love your advice about pursuing your interests with passion. I most certainly see how much you love making your table cozy and inviting with a whole lot of passion. The lovely birdcage centerpiece is so lovely for a Valentine's Day table, especially paired up with pink depression glass. (I always wanted to collect it, but never did.) There is something so delicate about the pink depression glass. It conveys intimacy so well. The candlelight and gold mesh runner makes for an elegant setting. I would love to try the truffles. They look so irresistible.

  25. Your table is absolutely stunning, Jemma! The birdcage is just perfect as the centerpiece!

    Warm hugs,
    Carol

  26. Such a lovely table, Jemma. I am especially fond of the pink depression glass plates.

  27. Jemma your table is lovely. I am partial to depression glass of any kind but I collect the green cameo and the pink cabbage rose and think they are stunning when used in a tablescape as you have done. I really like the birdcage and white heart shaped candles. Stunning!
    thank you for blog hopping with us...it is always such fun, isn't it?

  28. So pretty Dear Jemma. I had to pin your tablescape. I love it all. So romantic and speaks HEARTS and LOVE just like you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  29. Looks like you had so much fun decorating your table. It's lovely and super romantic. Great idea on the added touches to the bird cage too. Don't think I would have thought of adding a pearl necklace but it's genius!

  30. Good morning Jemma! How I wish I had Valentines Day off from work so I could prepare a special table for us; it will be the 38th anniversary of when we met, a special day indeed. Have a romantic celebration!!!

  31. Your depression glass plates are so pretty there and I love the goblets. The birdcage is a perfect touch. Don't you love decorating?!

  32. What a beautiful table , your mother's depression glass is perfect for your feminine vibe. Funny, my mom hated their depression glass, it reminded her of hard times and got rid of all of it way before I was ever in the picture. She was not a sentimental lady at all and did not hold onto things. Your dark chocolate truffles are making my mouth water. Glad you continue to decorate for the holidays and seasons, it keeps us creative!!!

  33. I love the greens tied into the design because it helps lead the way into the spring season that at this point many of us are ready for! The pink and gold tones play off of one another so nicely as well. The polka dot candles and the birdcage are some of my favorite pieces, but from the glassware to the candles everything looks great together, cheers!

  34. Jemma this table setting is so pretty. Depression glass is one of my favorites. I am hoping over to see the other tables set pretty. Happy Thursday Eve.

  35. What a romantic table indeed. I love pink depression glass but only have a few pieces. Your bird cage centerpiece is beautiful. Dark chocolate truffles and vintage Valentine's are such nice personal touches. I so agree with you to go with what you love when it comes to decorating and design! My motto too!

  36. Jemma, this is such a lovely table! I love all of it but the pink depression glass plates remind me of an early Martha Stewart book where I fell in love with the cabinet full of pink depression glass. My mother collected a clear glass depression glass but I can't remember the pattern. I love all the different items you've brought together for this table and the birdcage is so much fun. I used to have a beautiful love bird ornament that would be perfect in there, if I hadn't passed down so many of my Christmas ornaments to the kids I would sure send it to you.

    Jemma, even though I pop over from your FB sometimes, I had not noticed until today that your place on my blogroll reads "3 months ago". No wonder I haven't been seeing updates for your posts. Don't know why that happened but I added you again and will check and see if it updates now.

    Happy Valentine's Day to you and your sweetheart,
    Dewena

    P.S. And happy Valentine's Day to Sadie May!

  45. Jemma, Your birdcage centerpiece stoled the show! It's perfect the way you decorated it with the pearls and ribbon, and it shouts romance throughout your tablescape! I love your beautiful pink depression glass and all the other special touches you've added. Gorgeous, my friend!

  46. It's true, time goes so fast and you're right as empty nesters, decorating for the holidays makes the time spent with your hubby extra special and often a time to reminisce. I really like your pretty tablescape and the elements you've put together. That birdcage is lovely and makes a perfect centerpiece with the glowing candles inside. The gold table runner is stunning and adds a touch of drama. Your china is the same as my sister-in-law's wedding china and I've always admired it. Would love to have one of those yummy looking chocolates!
