I am so excited to share my Valentine’s Breakfast for Two Table with you today! This table has all the love, style and sweetness you need to show someone how special they are to you.


For Valentine’s Day, I set the little round table in the master bedroom for breakfast. Next to the fire, it is a lovely way to begin the day with Mr. FrenchGardenHouse. {Since I set the table, I’m hoping he will make the breakfast! That’s only fair, right?!}


Valentine's Breakfast for Two Table



Welcome to Monday Morning Blooms! The Valentine’s edition. My friends Mary, Pam and Shirley and I are so happy you are here! I’ll share their links at the bottom of this post so be sure to visit them and get inspired.



Monday Morning BLooms



A few posts back, a new reader asked me if I just moved furniture around for blog posts in our home? The answer is yes and no. : )  The sitting area of our master bedroom with the fireplace is big enough for a table. Because our home isn’t huge, I like to use every single place I can for special occasions. And, I like to move things around for a change of pace! So NO, it’s not just for blog posts….it’s for using every inch of space here at FrenchGardenHouse when I can.


This past Christmas, I had a special “little people only” tea party by the tree in the master bedroom.  Because “the grown-ups” were in the living room. It was so much fun, that it will probably become another FrenchGardenHouse holiday tradition. So, see what I mean? Use every available space to spark magic and joy in your days!







Let’s start with the table setting. I started with this beautiful navy blue ruffled linen tablecloth. Our room has plenty of antique blue and white, so the navy echoes the accents in the decor.




Romantic Breakfast

I decorated the mantel with a few of our latest spring Les Belles Fleurs faux florals {full collection coming soon!}, and a few nostalgic milk glass pieces.  The chocolates canister has hand painted roses, the covered box features two sweet love birds.


I layered a dusty pink linen runner down the middle. Since I wanted more of the blue to show, my grandmother’s pearls cinch the runner in the middle.  Anytime I can use things that my grandmother left me in our home, I do. She would approve, I’m sure of it! For the place settings, I used these Limoges porcelain plates.  They have the prettiest little blue forget me not flowers on them, and gilt rims.

Use beautiful linen napkins to give your table a little pop.  These ruffled dusty pink napkins add all the romance this table needs. They come in sets of four, I like to order at least eight napkins of any kind. The little vintage glasses have a ruby flashed rim, they are perfect for fresh squeezed orange juice.


The vintage ruby flashed footed server is just big enough for a couple of fresh baked rolls. Just in case we want to have tea here later, I’ve set up an antique silver plated tea service in the book case.  A platter underneath will make sure the tea doesn’t drip on the books or the bookcase.



A romantic Breakfast




Details make all the difference, so at each place setting I used these tiny vintage Valentine’s Day favor cups, and filled them with our favorite chocolates. {breakfast or no, it IS Valentine’s day!} The vintage RESERVED sign is a fun touch.

About the flowers.  I was thrilled to find my favorite pink roses, and these pretty apricot spray roses too. But what really made me giddy was the little bunches of helleborous. I’ve never seen those sold as cut flowers here in California before. So I bought 2 tiny bunches for this arrangement.





Roses arrangement



I often think I’m cheating on these Monday Morning Blooms, because, honestly, I just cut the stems at an angle, and place the flowers in a vase. In this case an antique crystal etched pitcher with a sterling silver band. It’s not really floral design, is it? But that is the beauty of flowers, they do all the work. No need to be fussy, just cut, and arrange in water = perfection!
