Farm Table of Red, Black, and White

Rather than a full-on Valentine table, I set a table heavy on red that also includes black and white.

It could be quickly transformed to a Valentine-themed tablescape with the addition of chocolate treats.

Open lids to view (and taste) Hershey™ Valentine Peanut M-n-M’s and Cupids.  I posted this on Instagram yesterday.  🙂

I had just poured a fresh cup of hot coffee, and instantly  thought to pour the candies into containers…instantly snapped a picture.   A friend appropriately calls it Instantgram.  Ha!

A friend gave me the hen/rooster S&P set for Christmas.  They are perfect with the lazy Susan painted by PAM (Painter Artist Mom) many years ago.  I was thrilled when she gave it to me!

You saw these canning jars yesterday and how easy they were to paint (Easiest DIY: Painting Canning Jars).

They continue the farm theme and give a nod to the milk bottles at each place setting.

The mugs have a rustic/country flair and offer something for the Mr.

Ramekins show well in contrast to the bright red salad plates.

I set the floral paper napkins beneath for a bit of femininity.

And, whoop, the ramekins almost vanish from view!

Place Setting

You don’t see many tablescapes here at Hood Manor without a table-cloth.  Wood tones give a warm, farm-y feel to things.

Pull up a chair and join me!

Are you setting Valentine tablescapes already?  Do you like this one that gives the occasion a wink without being all about hearts?

    Kim, the look of your wood table is warm and cozy! The farm-inspired setting is a perfect start to the day, and once again you are tempting us with with chocolate. The mugs are too cute and I love the shot of your coffee that looks like a butterfly is in it, a reflection of the light, I am guessing! Happy Wednesday!

      Thanks, Pam. That’s funny you noticed the light over the table reflected in my coffee. How very observant! I forgot to mention the mugs are from Hobby Lobby from earlier this winter. (Not sure they still have them.) Come on over for some chocolate! 🙂

    I am loving the plaid mugs! Very cozy/wintery. The whole look is really cute.
    I wait til Feb 1st to Valentine’s the place up. I have gone overboard….hearts hanging all over the place…LOL….but that was when I had time and energy to do it.

    I will be using my black and white hearts chargers (great clearance deal!), red plates, and …hmmm…the table cloth!!! OHH MY! I misplaced my red one after washing it last year so I will have to dive into Mt.Basement and see if I can locate it….or try something new!
    That is now on my list of TO DOs.

    Quincy says hello….he is doing well. 24 pounds and looking good! 2 or 3 more and he will be svelte again!! He needs a haircut BAD!!! He is so hairy he is getting bear-ish. His wacko “eyebrows” are making him look like he is crazy. hahaha (I have to laugh…my dad’s dad had big wiry white eyebrows so I think of him when I see wacky eyebrows.)

      Thank you! Mugs are from HobLob in late fall. I usually wait for February to officially arrive, too. Sorry you have to go dig in the dungeon for your red cloth. Maybe you’ll find it quickly (fingers crossed). Give Quincy a hello pat for me. 🙂

    I am glad you are back on tablescape Thursday. I have missed your posts! Your table is fun – both country, winter, and Valentines all rolled into one. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.
