A Valentines Brunch for Two

 A valentines brunch for two. 
The table is set after being inspired by Eddie Ross' version
 of a fabulous table he set with the very same opaline goblets.
The tall tapers Eddie used look identical in color to the opaline goblets.
I'll be on the hunt for some, they look so fun!
I loved how he mixed in lots of pink, 
purple and orange to create a bohemian mood.
 My table is set with pale pink and the same robin's egg blue,
creating a more romantic instead of festive setting.
My opaline stash is stuffed inside the french desk~
 A paper valentine bunting drapes across the mirror


 My Nana's stemware sits next to the opaline goblet~
I only have two, one in green and one in pink.
 This ruffly blue vase is perfect for a valentine bouquet~
thanks to two of my readers
 that told me that the tulip is one cut flower that keeps growing
 and so that is why they flop over~
so I gave them a trim and was able to reuse them.
 I made the pink toile place mats long ago and 
have washed the green background right out of them.
I just might re-enact Eddie's table with the hot pinks and oranges~
for my birthday dinner!
Did I ever tell you about the time I got to 
meet Eddie Ross and his partner Jaithan Kochar?
I practically jumped over a sofa to meet him
 at a packed party in the NYC Design Center for the e-mag RUE's launch.
They couldn't have been nicer and more genuine, 
We traded stories about hunting for treasures
 at flea markets and the Salvation Army.
Anyway, it was really fun....
Meanwhile back here at Maison Decor
I am hoping to reveal the living room makeover on Monday~
its a special project with BlogHer called Monday Makeovers!
The mantle area got a winter update~
wondering what you all will think as it is a lot different!
Until I see you again~
"Far from thee be every care~"

Beautiful table setting. I still can't get over that wallpaper in the back of that room. It is truly quite elegant, and perfect for the room.

Your table setting looks so pretty! It looks just like something out of Shabby Chic's latest book. I love your little valentine banner too. It goes perfectly with your dining room style.

What a great looking table, Amy. I love it and don't you just LOVE those opaline goblets? I had one piece of hobnail that color and gave it to my neighbor that collected colored milkglass.

I can't wait to see your mantle. I can't imagine that it will be less than awesome~ xo Diana

Geeesh Amy, your house looks like something from a magazine, everything is so beautiful. I love your pink toile placemats... and i'm still loving the bench slipcovered, that was a good one, so Pamela Pierce, and her style is to die for,. one of my absolute favorites. Those sconces by the mirror... ok, let's just say it, they're completely amazing! I have a similar mirror, that i am promptly going to paint just like yours tomorrow!

Lovely, as always. And if I know Eddie (and I do and he & Jaithan are a delight!), the tapers are Creative Candles. I'm thinking either Royal or Sky Blue. They're great candles -- which you can order online:

charm home said...

Love those pops of turquoise. It's so pretty. I hope you are doing well. I've been so busy that I haven't had time to catch up on my favorite blogs. In a few weeks I get a whole week off!! I can't wait to do blogging catch up then. xoxo, Cristi

Maureen said...

Very dainty and romantic table for two. I do look the robin blue goblets and vase. Funny, I met Eddie and Jaithan in NYC at Gracious Home and had my photo taken with them! I even won a goodie bag of items from the store!You are so spot on about them..They were so gracious and cute, too!

Lori @ Projects Plenty said...

Amy, what a beautiful table setting. I especially love the image with the opaline goblet and your Nana's pink stemware with your china tea ware. Looking forward to the living room reveal!

Love all the blue opaline stemware with your chandi's and sconces. That little vase is to die for! What a find that was! Such a cute valentine brunch. I'm working on a valentine table too. Here it is 3am and I just got home an hour ago. I'd love to see all this vamped up for your birthday dinner. I think a valentine birthday is so fabulous...a great day for a birthday. My birthday is two days before 4th of July so I used to get red white and blue birthdays sometimes. My Mom has this fabulous jello recipe that is red white and blue. She used to make it for me every year. Everyone at work would joke at how sad it was that I got jello for my birthday but they never had this special dessert...it's fantastic. But Mom has sworn off ever cooking again...so I guess I'll never have it again unless I make it.

I'm going to try very hard to get my valentine stuff done. I've had the supplies for weeks...just so hard to find the time.

Karena said...

Amy I adore your opaline collection and of course your decor!! I cannot wait to see your latest unveiling.

Eddie and Jaithan Are so special and yes genuine. I was fortunate to be in a workshop with them here in Kansas City at Creative Candles!

Please do come and join my Valentine Giveaway!
