For us, Valentine's Day is about celebrating the love of family
and one of the ways we do that is by having a special supper together.
I love the way their faces light up when they walk into the dining room and see the table decorated.
For Valentine's Day I started with a basic white tablecloth and added these wonderful red placemats I found on a Christmas clearance sale at JYSK. I loved the deep red color and the swirly heart design.
I added white napkins with these napkin rings, which again I found at a clearance sale at Stokes.
I added my basic white dishes, a heart candle at each place setting (from the DollarStore) and a heart box.
These I also found on clearance a few years ago. I love the pattern on the them.
And I filled them with homemade "Caramel Smoochies".
For the center of the table I used this wreath.
And candle holder. Again both were found at the DollarStore.
Put together they looked quite nice.
I added some roses and greenery in a vase.
The flowers were also picked up at the DollarStore. It's a great place to find things and fits my budget :)
The vase was given to me for Mother's Day a few years ago.
Then I added some greenery down the center of the table.
And a rose at each place setting.
Along with their cards.
I was very happy with how everything came together.
And with the candles lit.
The table glowed.
And we had a wonderful evening celebrating together as a family.
