Happy Valentine's Day weekend, friends! Do you all have any fun plans? We are cooking in on Saturday and celebrating just the two of us then and then we are headed to my parent's on Valentine's Day. It's a tradition that we go over to my parent's as they always cook something delicious and host a fabulous night. We have had COMICAL past Valentine's Days so we have vowed to stay in and cook (not even do takeout HA!!) for every Valentine's! 

I put together this tablescape and while we will eat at this table for Valentine's Day, I wanted to create something that leaned more towards spring than any one holiday. I am hoping that what I created inspires any of your spring tablescapes in the coming months. I wanted to use our plain white Nantucket basket dinner plates without layering any other plates to show you that you don't need to collect tons of plates to create a beautiful table. 

Setting a table is kind of like putting an outfit together. Using a white dinner plate is like wearing a pretty white dress and then adding in fun earrings, a colorful bag, etc. 

This also serves as your PSA... I am not sure if this is in all locations, but this weekend, Whole Foods is offering 2 dozen roses for only $20. I got these pretty pink roses from Whole Foods as well as the filler and I was so please with what I created. The selection at WF was out of this world good. They had so many more options compared to places like Trader Joe's and Fresh Market! This likely all depends on where you live, but seriously, if you are in Pittsburgh, head to Whole Foods!! 
Spring Tablescape + Rosé French 75

A French 75 is one of my most favorite cocktails and a great cocktail to serve over Valentine's weekend. It's gin and champagne with a touch of lemon! If you haven't tried it, it's a must! It's often served in a champagne flute or coupe so I thought it would be the perfect thing to serve it in my pretty pink vintage coupe glasses I found in Georgia a few years ago! 

My only edit would be to use less simple syrup than they call for. I eyeball it, but I don't like sweet drinks so I do a tiny bit of the simple syrup! This is something you can easily make in a batch for several drinks, too!

A trip to New Orleans got me hooked on French 75 and Pimms Cup!

Wow Sydney, what a beautiful tablescape. This has totally inspired me to actually set the table, use the “good” napkins and make the next week (or even longer) a little less ordinary when having dinner. I love that you have beautiful glassware as well. I really need to add some pink cocktail coupes to my collection! Katie x
