Valentine's Day Inspired Table-Scape06|05|11
I used 4 silk flowers (counted by the number of stems, since one stem can have multiple flowers) that remained from the making of my bouquet and trimmed 3 of them down to bud vase height. A couple of the stems had more than one flower on them, so I removed the extras and I beheaded the 4th stem completely. I placed a series of mint julep cups (these can be purchased inexpensively, are fabulous as vases and obviously beautiful for drinking out of as well) around the table for that tarnished silver ambiance that I find soooo romantic and added a votive candle to each. If you have never paid attention to this before, take a look at any silver you may have, that has not been recently polished...pinks, browns, greens...its beautiful!
I used the china from my wedding registry, which has a beautiful romantic quality to the design, and mixed and unmatched estate silver at each place setting (also tarnished on the handles a bit).
