Valentine Centerpiece

 

Valentine's Centerpiece from Marty's Musings

As I was putting away the Christmas decorations I was already thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day,

just about my favoritest holiday (my anniversary and chocolate hearts all rolled up into one!)

Visions of red burlap, white lace and pearls were dancing through my head.

After lugging my decorations down from the attic I pondered and unloaded and set up and rearranged.

Here is my thrifty DIY Valentine centerpiece!

and purchased on sale (red glitter leaves from craft store at 80% off)

Finally, there has to be mention of the token tempting chocolate (two votive holders filled with red m&ms (red and Christmas chocolate on sale picked out of the bag one at a time by my son. Truly the best chore ever :)

Lastly, my homage to the wonderful  day itself with a little bit of love (also $.25 at the craft store.)

Can’t wait until Valentine’s Day either? My hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Valentine’s Day last year. We had a wonderful photo booth for family fun and beautiful decorations  for our magical celebration. How do you celebrate each year?

  33. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure
    things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my
    own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks
