Valentine’s Day Tablescape

Hello, friends…I hope you’ve had a nice weekend.

It has been cold around here of late, but that’s to be expected given we’re in the middle of winter. Thankfully, the sun made a couple of appearances last week which was welcomed, especially given we experienced less than 50 hours of sunlight the entire month of January, compared to the seasonal average of 85.

I always find it a little difficult to be motivated during this time of year and I’m sure it has a lot to do with the lack of sunshine.

Inspired by these gold-rimmed glasses I found at the thrift store, I recently set up a sweet Valentine’s Day tablescape with the help of some gorgeous flowers from Michaels.

Blush, pink and gold always look so pretty together, don’t you think?

The brass candle holders are also from the thrift store.

It’s hard to believe how realistic faux flowers look nowadays. Even the texture of the flowers has changed to make them look so real.  Michaels has over 1800 blooms and greenery in their new Flower Market, including trendy succulents and real- touch flowers.

I also incorporated some of my crepe paper roses (tutorial here) and used some of the candy cloches I used for my bar cart (here).

I made a video showing how to make these simple individual place cards which I hope to share with you soon.

    Your table scape is so pretty! It looks so elegant! Your house always looks so nice. Those flowers you are talking about I see them all over the place. When we went to have something done on our car they had these 2 plants in the corner of the room in full bloom. There was a window near one of them but it wasn’t getting any direct sunlight. It’s also winter time in CT so there isn’t a lot of sun. I kept wondering how they looked so full of life when there was no sun and no direct sunlight. I got up close and personal with one of them and even felt it. It wasn’t real! The good part about that is you don’t have to water it and it won’t die. There were guys working at this place for the most part and I’m guessing that they probably wouldn’t be so good at remembering to water the plants so if they were real they probably would be dead. I’ll have to check out the flowers at Michaels.

    Found your blog through Pinterest and now feel so inspired to redecorate my entire house! So beautiful! Love the board and batten as well! What color did you use on the walls? Love how airy and fresh it makes the room feel.
