Valentine's Day tablescape - Day 3

So here's Day 3 of our 5 Days of Valentine's - somewhat like the 12 days of Christmas - with a different table setting design for each day.

Day 3:  Red and White Theme
I want the 3rd day to feel like it's the start of a more serious relationship.  I wanted to make it look a little formal by adding a deeper red into the scheme. I've changed the plain cotton white tablecloth into the silkier damask (that I use during the holidays) to bring out the patterned red cloth.

 The red cloth was purchased from a fabric store at a discount during previous holidays.

 The centerpiece of Valentine's Day 2 was kept. 

The centerpiece is surrounded by red boxes and filled with a little trinket to be exchanged during dinner.

I wanted to keep the idea of the woman still being wooed with flowers and candies.

This time the plate has a clear shade to show the deep red of the charger. What better combination of sweet and flowery than a marshmallow candied rose as a napkin holder.   

The vase from Valentine's Day 2 will also be used as a tray for the red velvet cake dessert.

I used a white patterned tablecloth to accentuate the redness of the table.  


Day 3 Valentine's Day  Dinner - Pork chops stewed in Mango nectar

I meant to use Guava nectar for its pinkness but the only thing I had was Mango nectar. Fortunately, it turned out just as well (except for the color theme violation!)
