Rose Dishes

I've started some Valentine's Day decorating.



Really it is more like un-decorating.
I like most of our rooms to give a subtle nod to the holiday.


Rose dishes are a perfect way to bring in the spirit of Valentine's Day.
I acquired my first floral dish with this little Bavarian sugar bowl from my grandmother. 



I dropped it at some point and it has a hole in the bottom but I love it and I have never found another one quite like it.
It has a delightful, naive charm.
There a couple of types of floral dishes that I love and prefer.
Bavarian (like the little sugar bowl) 
and 
Limoge.



Both of these types of china have a translucent and delicate look.



However,
I won't turn down another type of cute little
plate, pitcher or teacup.



I found the little daisy bread and butter plates at the resale shop.



I gathered more dishes from all the nooks and crannies in this house.


I have sprinkled them around the downstairs.




I love the bit of romance it adds.
  



I got the rose towels from Ikea.


How do you decorate for Valentine's Day?

  6. Pretty floral china looks good anytime, especially for Valentine's Day. You've inspired me to pull some of mine out. I love your white shelf too. What a perfect perch for your lovely things. I'm your newest Linky follower. Hope you pop over to Cottage and Creek and follow back.
