Hey Friends, we officially made it through the longest month everrrrr. Welcome FEBRUARY! I’m excited to be teaming up with some awesome friends in a blog hop to share great Valentine’s Day home decor inspiration. If you are coming over from my friends Heather @ InteriorSwag blog, welcome! Thank you for stopping by. Isn’t her post so beautiful? Today I’ll be sharing how to create an easy and inexpensive Valentine’s Day centerpiece that doesn’t involve candy or flowers. It has some winter vibes and it definitely adds interest to your dining table.
Creating this centerpiece is so easy. I like that it’s different from all fresh floral and candy centerpieces you may have seen. You just need to gather some branches. I had mine from a craft store, but you could easily go out to the yard with your kids and grab a bunch for the project. I used a pot and added the floral foam to keep branches stable and sturdy. If your vase or pot is the right size/shape you may not even need the foam. Then I used pink card stock paper (construction paper would work too) and a heart punch to make some cute heart shapes. You could also do red paper and white if you wanted it to be more colorful. Next I adhered the hearts to branches with glue dots. After that I placed the floral foam into pot and then arranged the branches into the floral foam. Here is how it looks:
I remembered I had this shredded paper so I used that to cover up the foam but it’s not necessary, you could also swap the shredded paper for faux moss or even pink shredded paper. Be creative!
The seasonal decor at Target dollar never lets me down. I grabbed these pom pom place mats, heart towel on my last trip. I love the soft pops of pink. Something about pale pink just makes me feel all the warm fuzzy’s. After all the red for Christmas, soft pink is my favorite for Valentine’s Day with maybe a little red here or there.
For the rest of the table settings I used these pink lace chargers that I got from Michaels a few spring’s back. I use them for my Easter table setting too. I just kept the setting simple with a folded napkin with cold flecks from Christmas Tree shops. I had these faux rosettes that I added on each napkin. I really love gold with soft pinks!
There you have it! My easy and inexpensive Valentine’s Day Centerpiece. I hope it inspires you to try something different this season. If you want more Valentine’s Day ideas head on over to Brendt @ She Gave it A Go blog to check out their inspiring Valentine goody bag idea.
