Decorating for Valentine's Day

I've never been one to decorate much for Valentine's Day, but this year I thought I would set out a few things.

This wreath I created from a plain grapevine wreath.  I just added silk roses, some delicate baby's breath and a cream ribbon with my hot glue gun.


A little candlescape sits on the table.  I have altered a burgundy candle with a piece of Stampin' Up Very Vanilla Seam Binding and some metal vintage keys.  The two glass votive holders I purchased years ago from Yankee Candle.  Pretty pink rose petals are scattered around the tray for a little romance.


My wrought iron shelf holds two Serena antique mercury glass pillar holders.  I like the warmth of the patterned brass bands with the silvery handblown mercury glass. 


The love letter candles are reminiscent of vintage Parisian telegrams.


Vintage-inspired gate keys hang from the hooks with two red glittered heart ornaments.



Thanks so much for stopping to visit.  Have you decorated for Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is about pretty things. I love the romance of your decorations. The candle is so creative. Everything looks just right... We are making a Valentine garland that Chris designed. That's a start...
