Pretty Reds And Romantic Touches


Courtship and love, hearts and flowers, cherubs and cupid…all symbols of Valentine’s Day.  But do we really need a “day” to show how much we love someone and to shower them with jewelry, chocolates and a sparkling beverage?  I say not.  Why not have these touches around every single day of the year?

Beautiful glass candy containers can not only hold candy, but how about an abandoned bird’s nest or add some water to float a pink carnation in?


Fancy up your desk with a cute cherub pen holder, after all, the office shouldn’t be boring….


…..and have a little chalkboard sitting around the house to write love notes, your child's name on, or reminders for the day.


Red dishes aren’t just for Valentine’s day, they can be used year round or for Christmas as well.  These red plates would be a lovely background for a lighter colored plate with hints of red on white…


….like these pretty English red transferware dishes.  Aren’t they sweet?


As Martha Stewart proclaims, dishes don’t need to match.  Mix up odds and ends of stemware and cordials.  That way, your guests will have their “own” glass and won’t confuse it with someone else.  Who needs those clip on stem charms?


Speaking of ends up, fill these pretty pink glasses with a lovely sparkling wine…and cheers!  Bottoms up!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you from all of us at The Antique Warehouse!!!!
