...Pink & Chocolate Polka Dot.... Valentines Tablescape!

I LOVE Valentines Day! Typically valentines is red and white which I love BUT- this year I wanted something a little different. When I came across these dishes I knew they were the "different" that I was looking for. Chocolate brown and pink polka dots, what could be better? I snatched them up and little by little started finding other items to fill in the tablescape. I am tickled pink (hehehe) with how it turned out!  
I am linking with Suasan at "Between Naps On The Porch" 
Please visit her to see many more great ideas!

I started the table setting with using a vintage bed sheet for my tablecloth! I just LOVE vintage linens.
White round placemats are from the dollar tree.
Cordial colored chargers came from a flea market booth and they were $1 each!
Paper napkins are Martha Stewart and were on sale for $2.00 ( last year)
Plates, Bowls and Cups all came from the Dollar General Store and they were about $12.00 for the set.
Flatware was purchased at Dollar Tree. (they have white stars on them which I covered with glittered heart stickers)

I found the little mail boxes at Target in the $1 section.
Place cards are Martha Stewart.
Heart shaped coasters are Martha Stewart. 

These little petifore shaped candles are just darling AND they are chocolate scented! I know right?  

This fondue set was a STEAL last summer at a local yard sale. It was brand new in the box, from Avon and for only $1.00 I snatched it right up!  

Ah! Another one!! lol..... this one was sitting on the shelf at Savers for $4.00 and just screamed at me when I walked by....HEY! I'm pink and chocolate brown and you NEED me for your tablescape. I politely responded "I already have a fondue set" to which I heard once again.....I know, but I match PERFECTLY and you NEED me! So, without further hesitation and to keep from causing a scene into my cart it went!  

The small box of hearts are from Walmarts after Christmas clearance sale for .25 each and they are soaps! I thought they would make great favors!
Thanks for stopping by and Have a great night!
