If you read my post on decking the halls this year, you know that I am craving simplicity and ease this holiday season. With parties, entertaining, shopping and decorating, the holiday’s are wonderfully busy enough. I wanted a space that was minimal and serene – a place to unwind and relax. This longing is perfectly captured in this years holiday table setting. A rustically sophisticated setting, perfect for gathering with friends and family.
I must say writing a post about a tablescape in the days after the horrific violence in Las Vegas and Edmonton and what feels like weeks of devastation and destruction, feels frivolous and superficial. And while I’m not sure what would be an appropriate post to write, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge my deep sadness and send thoughts of love and prayers to those affected in particular, but all of us really. I honestly have no words.
Love it or hate it, it’s a mere week away … Valentine’s Day. Whether you have someone in your life to share the holiday with or not, I think February 14th is a great excuse to add a little pink and red to your life, indulge in some candy and perhaps pause and reflect on love – love of ourselves, our partners, and given the events in the world lately – our neighbours.
While I could ramble on about love at great length, I’ll save that for another day 😉 and instead focus my attention on gorgeous Valentine Tablescapes. Because you know me, it’s isn’t a holiday without a fabulous tablescape and these beautiful tables are sure to get your creative juices flowing to set the perfect table to celebrate love!
