My Romantic Valentine Home Tour
Hi, there! I thought I’d take you on a Valentine home tour, today.
Come and Knock on My Valentine Door!
A few weeks ago, I made this Valentine door wreath.
You can read the tutorial in my post: Wooden Hearts Valentine Wreath.
Come on into my Valentine Dining Room!
Mr. B. and I are hosting a dinner party for three other couples on Valentine’s Day. I set the table waaayy in advance so that I could take pictures for this post.
For my dinner table centerpiece, I’m using wine bottles that I upcycled back in January. I included the tutorial in my post: Easy-to-Make Valentine Upcycle Bottles.
I’m using a round, beveled mirror from Hobby Lobby under the bottles to reflect the light from the chandelier.
Valentine’s Day Dinner for Eight
I made these cute napkin “rings” out of shiny red pipe cleaners left over from a Christmas project.
In the photo above, you can see the brass tray that I recently cleaned and polished. It’s an interesting antique piece. Read about the tray and the methods that I found for cleaning brass in this post: Brass is Back! How to Clean and Display Brass Décor.
Speaking of antiques, the china dishes are about 100 years old. They used to belong to my grandmother. The silver flatware is 75 years old and used to belong to my mother. I am so blessed to have all of these wonderful pieces in my home today.
Come into my Valentine Living Room!
I created a “Valentine Tree” for my coffee table.
On my mantel, I’m displaying some little Valentine “trees” that I made from pine-cones. You can read the tutorial in my post: Decorating My Valentine “Trees”.
Along with the little pine-cone Valentine “trees,” I put a bunch of tulips into a handmade stoneware vase.
The tulips are variegated with a touch of deep lavender and a bit of white at the edges of the petals.
The stoneware vase was made by Savannah artist John Jensen. Click the link to see the beautiful artwork from John’s ceramics studio.
On the opposite end of the Valentine Mantel, I’m displaying a framed calligraphy of the passage from I Corinthians 13: 4-8 that says, “Love is patient, Love is kind . . .” I gave it to Mr. B. as a gift on the first Valentine’s Day after we were married.
What are doing for Valentine’s Day this year? Let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
Enjoy Life Creatively!
