Weekly Table Setting: Cupid's Table

Happy Valentine's Day! If it isn't clear by the explosions of pink and red... we're celebrating the holiday with this week's table setting. Often times we go for a more subtle look, but not this week. It's the holiday of love, and we're shouting it from the rooftops. Plus, a bright pop of cheery color is pretty essential these days, given the persistent snow and frigid temperatures outdoors!

Here's a bit of what Alex had to say about this week's table:

I took on this week's table setting in full spirit of our favorite winged infant whose wounds inspire love and passion. Using as much red, pink, white and glitter as I could find, I created an over the top yet romantic setting for two. Love Valentine's Day or hate it, you can still use the angular Schott Zwiesel decanter and Alessi bottle coaster to celebrate or disparage the holiday.

However you're celebrating (or not) this year, we hope you have a wonderful day!
