Valentine's Day Table

I wanted to mix things up a bit on the table in my common area, so I decided to incorporate a few heart-themed decorations.

Using a cookie cutter, I traced two different sizes of hearts - one on metallic gold paper and one on pink paper.

I used scissors with an "antique" edge to cut them out - giving the hearts a relaxed look while also taking the pressure off for me to cut perfectly!  (And yes, these are scrap-booking scissors from my Creative Memories days!)

Everyone got their own heart!

I found these cute little hand towels at Target and snapped them up to use at napkins.  I love the waffle material and the alternating pink and red ripples.

I got this ribbon on a trip to Michael's - I knew it would come in handy for a project!

I used jute to cinch the small hand towels/oversized napkins.

I tied on the two hearts and a piece of decorative Valentine ribbon.

For the centerpiece, I simply changed the ribbon and tied a big bow around the arrangement and filled the tray with one of my favorite candies - conversation hearts!


There's lots to love about this simple idea!  I used a lot of what I already had and it changed the look of the table.
Happy Valentine's Day!
