Q Squared Valentine’s Table with Skinnytaste’s Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup + Menu

Today’s post I’m setting a Q Squared Valentine’s Table with  Skinnytaste’s Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup + a Valentine’s Day Menu!

Q Squared Valentine's Table

For Valentine’s Day this year (a week ahead or after), how about setting a pretty table and inviting your close friends over for an intimate dinner party? Last week we came together on a Thursday night for a lovely dinner party at my house, and I recently read a Proverb about friendships that made me smile.

The sweet smell of incense
can make you feel good,
but true friendship
is better still.

This is how I feel when some of my best lady friends are gathered around the table with me.

Q Squared Valentine's Table

Set the table with Q Squared NYC.

With the help of Q Squared NYC and their beautiful peony pattern dishes, it only took me a few minutes to put a pretty table together. I usually get my inspiration from the season at hand, and then from the dishes and napkins I want to use.

From there, I find a charger that matches, along with the dinner plates.

I love mixing a signature pattern dish (Q Squared Peony appetizer plates, bowls, and salad plates) with a Dollar Store dinner plate. Chargers are from Michael’s.

Q Squared was founded by a mother-daughter team, Nancy and Alaina, and was created as an alternative to overpriced and under-designed dinnerware.

I love their beautiful, ornate designs on the highest quality melamine (yes, melamine!), that makes setting a classy table very affordable!

I also want to mention their {new} Round Ruffle Collection! Adorable!
