Oh Ginger, this is incredibly gorgeous! I love everything about this table AND your dining room. I don't even know where to start with this comment. First, I love your drapes, and I LOVE that sideboard. Your table looks so romantic. I hate to keep saying "love", but it is the season, and I do love the way you put those beautiful sheer runners on the table. The square floral plates are gorgeous. I CANNOT believe you got that spectacular coffer server for $5!!! I am green with envy. And how cute that giant champagne glass chiller is! I'm delighted that you linked all of this beauty to the party! Happy Valentine's Day! laurie

I just went back to scroll through these beautiful photos again and realized I forgot to tell you I am also in LOVE with your chandelier - breath taking. I was surprised to see that my last comment showed up as "anonymous"? Hmmmm, don't know what's up with that. laurie

GORGEOUS Ginger! I SO Want to be there... Everything is stunning AND I am SO MUCH in Love with the Wallace "Waltz of Spring' sterling. I have never seen it before AND now I'm going to "HAVE" to hunt for a few pieces... I love silverware as much as dishes and "It's ALWAYS following me home"... Thank you for inviting us into your beautiful home!

Everything is just so pretty and romantic-who wouldn't love to come to this party? I love your drapes by the way.Iloved my visit to Savannah several years ago-such a beautiful city.

Laura Wilkerson said...

Ms. Ginger this table is gorgeous! I adore the vintage Valentine cards. Me and my hubby were just talking yesterday about the old cards and how it's not fun for the kids anymore just writing names on these old store cards with stickers and remembering when we used to make all our friends cards. Times have changed.
Anyway, lovely table and if you ever find that coffee server missing you'll know it's made it's way to Mississippi!
Hug Sweet Old Bob for me and happy Valentines Day to you both!
