Even though I have mixed feelings when it comes to Valentine’s Day (something feels weird about a holiday that is only for people who are in relationships), I do love Valentine’s Day decorations 💕 I decided that I would set up our table a few days early so I could take a few pictures. Here is what I did :
I made a heart shaped wreath out of two garlands that I bought at Jo-Anns. I bent them into a heart shape and the secured them at a few different points with pink ribbon. I also added a piece of pink ribbon at the top so I could easily hang it. On top of the wreath, I placed this ‘Love” balloon, which I found at Target.
I made the table runner out of flannel with pink gingham print that I found in the nursery section of Jo-Anns. For flowers I just used some pink roses that I picked up at Trader Joes and for candlesticks, I was finally able to use these pink ones that Slow Magic and I picked up while we were in Iceland like two years ago lol.
In addition to simple white ceramic plates that we already had, I bought these salad plates with roses at HomeGoods to make the table feel a little more whimsical and delicate. I used linen napkins, our everyday silverware, and I used crystal glasses. On top of the plates, I added these pink boxes, which I bought at Target, and filled them with homemade chocolates.
We are not the plan ahead type when it comes to things like Valentine’s Day so we do not actually have any plans. How do you guys feel about Valentine’s Day and do you have any plans for it?
