Yesterday, you saw the lovely candy bar that I would pair this Valentine’s Day table setting with. Because on the day for sweethearts, why not add something sweet to dinner?
- Fresh Cedar Boughs
- Plates, Glasses and Cutlery
- Darice Gold Chargers
- David Tutera Pearl Garland (3 Strands)
- Darice Gold Ribbon
- David Tutera Gold Candlesticks
- David Tutera Silver Votive Holders
- Pink and Burgundy Cardstock
- David Tutera Napkin Ring Wraps
- Darice Heart Die Cut and Die Cutting Machine (Sizzix, Cuttlebug, etc.)
Originally I created this Valentine’s Day table setting without the heart cutouts. But something was lacking. I needed a little punch of pink among the green and subtle gold. And there’s something about Valentine’s day that lends itself to the craftiness of paper.
Maybe it’s making me nostalgic for the handmade Valentines of my childhood?!?
The pearls and the ribbons were strewn about the cedar boughs, as the gold candle holders stand proudly in the middle. I adore these candle holders. I actually think I might get a few more in order to make the table truly opulent.
I added a little bit of fun to each setting with a candy mold heart. (You can get the details for this easy confectionary creation on yesterday’s blog)
And in the background, a simple chalkboard Valentine’s Day banner adorned with hearts keeps the theme going.
It doesn’t have to be a dinner of couples, why not have a Valentine’s dinner for friends, family, or even your kidlets? The day of love is a fun one to celebrate…. especially when Sweet Hearts are on the table!
If candy isn’t your thing, consider whipping up some Valentine themed cookies or cakes to be displayed on these pretty DIY plate stands.
