- 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.
Thanks for visiting!
