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:

Valentine’s Day Napkin Rings Alternative

Not enough time to make your own napkin rings?  No problem. Even if you have no time at all to cut, measure or sew, you can still use napkin rings to finish off your Tablescapes.

I found these Wilton ‘engagement ring’ Party Favors at Michael’s in the wedding section. (It seemed fitting, since that’s the day that my husband proposed to me.)

Just slip them onto the napkins to add a little bling!

Still no time to go out and purchase the Wilton Party Favors?  No problem. Tie some ribbon around your napkins.  Or wrap your napkins with some holiday garland.  It’s not hard to create a pretty tablescape. Just use your imagination!

Now, that was easy!

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!

Valentine’s Day Candle

What do you do with a plain white pillar candle?  Decorate it, of course!  I found some 3″ x 6′ pillar candles on sale, and naturally, I couldn’t resist them.  But they are plain.  I wanted something for Valentine’s Day.

What you’ll need:

1- 3″ x 6″ pillar candle

measuring tape

Chain (Walmart jewelry making section)

Red heart shaped rhinestones (Michaels)

Straight pins

Double faced tape Continue reading
