A Savannah Valentine Times Two

I just loved this tablescape
that I did last year!
Since I have made so many new friends
during the past year I thought I would
share this tablescape again.

I hope you enjoy it 
the second time around!

Your table is stunning, as is the entire room! It is so elegant, but still feels very warm and inviting.

Love your little corner table with the bowl and pitcher set from your previous post. And, those camellias are beautiful.

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Since I wasn't blogging last year, Ginger, I missed this beautiful table, so thank you so much for re-posting it! It's just beautiful! I MUST get extra runners to do them crosswise--I've always wanted to do that, then end up just getting one... Your dining room is beautiful; perfect for such a lovely setting! Thanks for sharing it; I really enjoyed looking at all the details! ~Zuni

Jacqueline said...

Glad you shared it since I didn't see it before! I love the punch of the hot pink. Your sterling is exquisite! You had fabulous taste even at 17 years old.

Tracy Suzanne said...

Just stunning Ginger. So Savannah too. I love your wedding coffee set so much. And the little hands dish is darling too. That coffee perculator was a still and looks beautiful with you coffee set. It's such a shame women don't get all dress up and go to bridge or other parties like my Mother did. I would love to play dress up and put on white gloves with a beautiful dress and share in all your finery.

Curtains in My Tree said...

I am so glad you let us see those pictures again this year, because I missed them last year, guess I didn't know about your blog then

what a beautiful table and room and oh I love the large champagne glass holder WOW is all over this room. You have such an elegant home Ginger

Alycia Nichols said...

Hi, Ginger! Is that a samovar or a percolator? I haven't seen a good old-fashioined percolator in years! They were the best! I remember as a kid watching the coffee pop up into the little glass head and thinking how cool it was! I passed up the opportunity to purchase a silver samovar a few years back, and I am SO sorry I did! What a great addition that would have been!!! Beautiful table for Valentine's Day or any day when love is in the air! I hope you are geared up for a good weekend! Take care!

Maria said...

How beautifully festive! I love those teacups and saucers, so lovely!!!!!! I'm sure drinking tea out of them is such a pleasure!

Babs said...

Hope you have a great weekend,
Babs

Ohhh...ahhh.....what a beautiful table. I LOVE that silver pattern, so different and romantic particularly with the little swirl. And those salt cellars just lovely. Oh, I love the whole thing. I'll be right over.

Great to have you at Seasonal Sundays.

Super charming. I want to do something like this. My friend was complaining that the restaurants are crowded and overpriced on Valentines Day...would be fun to do something at home....although a lot of work to be as gorgeous as your table.

Sarah said...

What a treat to dine at this lovely table. It is truly full of romance! The pretty linens, dishes, and special touches all say Amour! I've never seen the Waltz of Spring pattern. It is gorgeous. Love the curvy handle! Thanks for opening up your beautiful home in Savannah! ~ Sarah
