I have to say Thursdays are one of my favorite days of the week.. I get to take out the many pieces of china I have and play.. Mr. P. just shakes his head each week when I start this process.
My love of toile goes back many years. When I found this set of dishes it was love at first sight. I ordered them immediately from a company I purchase from occasionally.
This morning I cut the ends of the roses and then chose the teapot as the centerpiece. I think they're a perfect fit. :-) A while back I spotted these beautiful monogrammed candles. Thankfully, they had 2 that day. With our last name starting with "P" they had to come home with me.
With the teapot being used I chose to lay the lid to the side of the teapot. I think it makes it's own statement.

I chose my gold chargers purchased last summer from TJ Maxx. They were a bargain at $3.99 each. I love the special shape of them. You'll also find the gold flatware.
Oops... this one is out of order.. but oh so pretty. Aren't they gorgeous?
A heart shaped dish. Perfect for a table set for 2 on this special day.
I think the crystal dish is perfect for serving jelly out of for our rolls.
I'm sure many of you recognize the vintage linens I purchased awhile back. I chose them today for the napkin.

As you leave today feel free to take a rose with you and give to your loved one
