Valentine Kitchen Display


  1. With the LOVE month almost upon us, I thought I'd share this Valentine display I created in our kitchen last week.  I tried to incorporate shades of red, gray and white using items I had on hand. I also wanted it to have a wintry feel so added snowflakes along with the hearts.


Adding seasonal décor to a few areas of your home creates a fun and cheery vibe.

A couple of love birds set the scene for my display.

Red berries from my Christmas décor are given a Valentine twist by adding red hearts and placing them in a white pitcher.
The pitcher rests on a metal stand that usually holds a large glass drink dispenser.


Red snowflake mugs are set atop a cake stand.

White-handled spoons and napkins were placed inside the mugs.

Additional embellishments add a fun touch.

On the other side of the table, heart-shaped white plates and red-handled flatware fill a wire basket.

Gray placemats beside the basket give added height and colour to the display.

These galvanized metal pots were decorated with snowflakes and red napkins.

Valentine kisses await. I see one is starting to open...don't worry, I'll take care of that! ;-)

The full view

I added a few decorative items beneath the table as well.



Birch logs were set in this metal tub and decorated with faux red roses and hearts.


More faux red roses, a gray throw and red-bird pillow sit atop a basket.

A silver lantern's candle gives off a romantic glow.

Playing with dishes to set up this display was a very fun alternative to designing a full blown tablescape.

Hope you enjoyed seeing it.


 Maybe you've been inspired to create a Valentine display in your kitchen or some other area of your home.

Just shop your house for whatever might work, add some dishes and table linens and you'll have a Valentine vignette in no time.

How cute is this! Love all the different elements you used. The red snowflake cups and the white heart plates grabbed my attention! The pieces on the floor add to the warmth and romance of your vignette. I think you and I would get along just fine if we were neighbors!!

Lori, it just doesn't get any prettier than this! Gorgeous Valentine's display. Take care, Maria

Darlene Gardner said...

Love this! I especially like the use of snowflakes into your Valentine's decor. I am always torn about taking down my winter decorations for Valentine's decorations. You have solved that problem beautifully.

Chloe Crabtree said...

Oh my goodness, how adorable! I love the idea of shopping my house for red and white items and putting together a Valentine's vignette! All of your details are so perfect. The grey plaid throw and the little pillow with the red birds also makes it look so cozy for the cold days of February. Thank you so much for sharing over at Celebrate Your Story! I hope we see you again on Saturday night!
