CHEEP VALENTINE'S DAY DECORATING

We have this table that is the first thing you see when you walk in our house. I decided it would be kind of fun to decorate it for every holiday.

But, I didn't want to spend much money so I search around the house to see what I can come up with.


I had this Vintage book that I had found at a thrift store awhile ago. It is red so of course it's perfect for Valentine's Day. So out it came. Along with a vintage white pot I have that is filled with shells. I just added a few little glittered hearts to it.

I picked up red candles for only 39 cents at Michaels that I put in the white holders I already had.

While at Michaels I picked up these four letters to spell LOVE. I was going to paint them red and glitter them up but I liked them just white. They were only $1.29 each.

Three more of the little glitter hearts bring in a bit of red.


I had the lace heart and the rusty key. So I just added a bit of red ribbon that I had. I thought it gave the "Key to my heart" look.
I added some red cinnamon candy hearts to one of my jars and I tied some red ribbon and added another glitter heart to it.
Table is finished and I hardly spent any money. I think it was around $5.00.
Now when people walk in they can get a little Valentine's Day cheer.

I've already decided what I'm going to do for St. Patrick's Day and Easter too. You'll have to wait to see those though.

Your table is very pretty! It really portrays a warm welcome. The letters look so good and really tie the whole thing together. I need to look for them. I did joy for Christmas, and planned to do love. I went to get them and they were out of e's. I like them sitting like that. Happy Valentine's Day!
