Valentine Love Tablescape

Valentine’s Day is only a week away, and it’s such a romantic time for me.  That’s the day that the love of my life proposed to me.  When I think of Valentine’s Day, it’s always filled with hearts & love.  I thought this week’s tablescape should be filled with those.  This is my Valentine Love Tablescape:

Quick Centerpiece Alternatives

If you made the Valentine’s Day Candle, but you just don’t have the time to make the centerpiece, I have a couple of easy alternatives for you.

How about some garland?  Just wrap the bottom of the candle with some Valentine’s Day garland.  Adds some bling, and balances out the candle with some weight to the bottom.

Or how about a boa?  Wrap the base of the candle with a red boa.

Not enough ‘bling’?  Add some glitter heart shaped stickers to the boa.

Have fun with it!  Valentine’s Day is not only a romantic holiday, but it’s a fun & sweet holiday.  Make it your own. You’re only limited by your imagination!

Silk Ivy bush (JoAnn Fabrics), cut apart at base

Silk Rose Bush (JoAnn Fabrics), cut apart at base

Red heart shaped scatter stones (Dollar Store)

12″ x 12″ mirror tile (Walmart)
