My inspiration for my arrangement and centerpiece for this Valentine-themed table came from this “Farm Fresh Flower Shop, Fresh Cut for Valentine’s Day” pillow cover with a red truck.

 I decided my Christmas Vintage Truck Centerpiece could be refreshed to motor into Valentine’s Day! You can see the steps, HERE.

Typical of a florist’s shop on Valentine’s Day, my truck is loaded down with flowers. . . alstroemeria in shades of white, pink and red, pink mums, blue hydrangeas and red roses.

    Delightful table, Mary. I love the heart plates and how you layered your plate stack. The buffalo check runner, red mercury glass votives and strewn rose petals accent your Valentine’s Day delivery red truck full of beautiful flowers perfectly.
    I really do like all the colors you used together in your flower arrangement and those sequined platemats are so striking.
    Always fun to blog hop with you.

    I honestly get so excited to see your tablescapes, and this is no exception. Your use of elements and phrasing is always delightfully clever (“the truck is out for delivery, motoring down a black and white buffalo check runner…”). The truck and its floral filled bed looks amazing, and so do the plate stacks and accoutrements. I love how you tie it all together for such a great presentation. I am more than pleased to be in your company and continuously learn new ideas from you, Mary. Happy February!
    ps – totally forgot Amethyst being February’s birthstone. My February daughter would be quick to remind me I forgot that too!

    Mary, I love the word Bonnie used to describe your table …delightful and it is. The plate stack is beautiful, I love a mix of patterns and you always do it so well. The heart shaped plates are fabulous, I have one of those. Your flower truck is loaded with a gorgeous mix of flowers and the cute sign on the front is perfect. Taking a seat at one of your tables is always a pleasure ❤️ have a wonderful Tuesday ❤️

    Love those beehive plates. I have been on the lookout for some since I first saw them on your blog. You have created an addict! I love your table settings and frequently try to find the dishes you use. I’m going to have to add on to my house just for the dishes! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful creativity with us!

  6. February 4, 2020 at 8:16 am

    Mary, I love the black and white added to the Valentine red. I have an antique shop and would love you to come decorate it sometime! 😀 Hey, I live near water, too! Fairhope is a tourist destination. Lol. Seriously, as always I so enjoy your posts. Beautifully designed and written to entertain.

    I want to be a guest at this table! So creative. Thanks for sharing your considerable talents!

    So adorable Mary, and I love the black and white runner and plates that make everything sing!! Your centerpiece couldn’t be any cuter, and the heart plates with their different floral patterns continue the whimsy the little red truck has delivered! LOVE the red rose petal path down your table and the striking red stemware ❤️ Happy Valentine’s Day!

  9. February 4, 2020 at 9:03 am

    The buffalo check runner is perfect for your floral-filled Valentine truck, Mary. Those red chargers with all the pretty stack of plates really set off the table. Your tables always inspire and make me smile. xx

  10. February 4, 2020 at 9:18 am

    Mary, your bold black and white buffalo check and mixed patterns really brings a smile and joy to me. With your beautiful floral little red truck centerpiece, your table brings Spring and nostalgia to me. I adore your floral heart shaped plates. I am thrilled to see so much color and the beauty of various flowers since we still are in winter wonderland in Wisconsin and every where we look it is white. Your Valentine’s Day tablescape really makes me look forward to Spring and Summer. Your work is always stunningly beautiful.

    What a fun, pretty table! I love the floral heart plates!

  12. February 4, 2020 at 9:45 am

    Your truck is motoring down Love Lane for sure! I love that you used the buffalo check as a “road” to each gorgeous place setting. You are the queen of mixing patterns, your table is such spectacular mix of colors, florals and patterns, I love it!! Thanks for hopping with us. I hope you have a special Valentine’s Day❤

    Oh my, where to begin? What a fun, inviting table. It’s whimsical and gorgeous at the same time. I love the layering and how sweet the heart dishes are and add to the flower arrangement. Thank you for sharing so many ideas with us.

    Beautiful table Mary! The buffalo check is a perfect pairing with the floral heart plates. 222 Fifth produces so many patterns that I adore & you always provide clever ideas on how to style them. Your MMB floral arrangement is so full of color and is a wonderful centerpiece. I just love that little red truck! The heart magnets were a clever way to change it for Valentines. Happy Tuesday Mary! Clara ♥️

    Another lovely table! I smile at the thought of that cute truck motoring down the table delivering flowers. Your set of heart plates is beautiful and a generouus giveaway. Some lucky winner is going to thrilled! You are such a generous friend to all, Mary!

    Mary, you always bring such creativity and style to your tablescapes! I love how you re-styled your little red Christmas truck for your Valentine’s table! The buffalo check is a fun contrasting pattern for Valentines and those heart shaped dishes steal the show! Those plates with their pretty patterns are complemented by your lovely fresh flowers! Thanks again for joining us in another hop!

    Oh my that truck’s floral display is amazing! Love how you updated it it for your Valentine’s table and that it mimics the pillow! Those are the sweetest heart shaped dishes! I’d love to own a set of those! Love the napkins and the checked dishes that tie into them! Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

  18. February 4, 2020 at 1:43 pm

    Oh Mary, you had me a little red farm truck! What a clever idea to repurpose it as a floral delivery centerpiece. As always, you talent for selecting and arranging flowers is magazine or HGN worthy. The plates, buffalo check runner, stemware, etc. all work together beautifully. Such a pretty, yet whimsical table. Such a joy to table hop with you!

    Just like Rita, I get excited to see your tables. As a lover of all things buffalo check this tablescape makes me smile. Great job repurposing the red truck and the blooms inside are beautiful. That stack is the star in this table and despite my daughter’s dismay if I find those heart-shaped floral plates I will buy them :) Everything cake together perfectly!

  20. February 4, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    I am absolutely smitten with heart-shaped floral plates, Mary! Your entire tablescape is just charming! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    Aw, very pretty Mary, I’m lovin’ the black and white check:@)

  22. February 4, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    So very cute. I love the red truck and the black and white checkered table runner. It was so fun hopping with you.

    Love it!!! A bright red truck full of flowers being delivered for a Valentines Day meal on a black and white highway is such a brilliant idea. Thanks again for sharing your creative ideas. ❤️❤️❤️

  25. February 4, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Wow – what a gorgeous table! I love all the colors the plate layering and the beautiful buffalo checks! So great to hop with you again!

  29. February 6, 2020 at 6:22 am

    You have such a keen eye for details! There is nothing about this gorgeous table I don’t love. Those beaded place mats anchoring your gorgeous mixed patterns plate stack! I love how you paired the floral napkin with the plaid and it works so well on this table.
    The star of the show is definitely the little red truck loaded with lots and lots of beautiful flowers. So clever and perfect! I don’t know where you got the Valentine’s little red truck pillow but I just love it!

  30. February 6, 2020 at 11:02 am

    Mary, I love your mix of black and white checks with red accents and floral plates. Using your red truck filled with flowers was an awesome idea for a centerpiece. I wish I had thought of using my truck. Did you make the “license plate”? It’s so cute. Love the pillows too

  31. February 7, 2020 at 12:35 am

    Mary, I look so forward to seeing your tablescapes every time. They are truly beautiful and this Valentine’s Day tablescape is breathtaking. I’m such a fan of the little red truck and how you filled it with beautiful flowers-such a gorgeous display. Those heart shaped plates are amazing. So fun to hop with you.

    I must say, you’re one of my favorite tablescapers. You have good ideas, then go the extra mile to execute them.
