A Valentine Celebration with Vintage Inspired Valentines

I’m planning a little Valentine’s Day celebration with vintage inspired Valentines for my grand-kids.  They will get plenty of sugar at their school celebrations but Gigi wants to have a little fun too.

So come see what I’m planning.

The red and white buffalo check table-cloth isn’t vintage but I just couldn’t pass it up.  Like my Christmas table-cloth this one is too small for my kitchen table so I turned it on it on the diagonal too.

A simple centerpiece with a red tray corralling cherry enamel salad plates, Mini Mason Jar Waterless Heart Snow Globesa painted cherry tea towel, and a vintage stamp stand with red and white Christmas bulbs.

The tablescape is simple since I plan to serve a few favorite finger foods.  A lacy salad plate, topped with a painted cherry napkin sets the stage for a red paper doily heart and vintage heart-shaped jello mold with a paper heart-shaped fan.

Anchor Hocking – Fire King ruby-red bubble tumblers along with the white handled flatware finish the table setting.   Now for the vintage inspired Valentines.

Each table setting has a vintage inspired Valentine chosen by each grandchild to mark their spot at the table.

I had not planned on making a Valentine banner but with the supplies on hand I put one together to surprise the grand-kids.  It is a simple banner with lacy paper doilies clipped to red and white bakers twine.

A Little Valentine Love Around the House

A little Valentine love around the house is my tribute to Valentine’s Day.

My grands love it and I wanted to share it with you today.

I pulled a few things together for this corner of the dining room showing off a few pieces of jadeite and Ella Mae.

My little red truck is hauling sweethearts to the lovelorn.

I still have the pink tree up from Christmas.  It seemed a shame to take it down before Valentine’s Day and we enjoyed it so much again this year.

In the foyer I added the Valentine Throw Pillow that I made a few years ago to my chippy white captain’s chair.  I found the captain’s chair back when I first started thrifting.

My small vintage inspired ladder is the perfect display space for a few Valentine grain sack hearts.

 A fluffy pink throw and a velvet heart banner make for a little Valentine decor in the master bedroom.  The Valentine Heart banner is a Target find.

Here is a close up of a charming milk glass heart shaped plate on the bedside chest.

You guys know how I love Bullseye’s Playground at Target and I was there ready to scoop up a couple of Valentine bargains when they first hit the shelves.  I found this pretty heart and a simple project immediately came to mind.  I added a graphic from the Dollar Tree and called it a day.

Don’t you just love these giant prayer beads with a heart?

Simple Sunday

Welcome to Simple Sunday.

Today’s project is Mini Mason Jar Waterless Heart Snow Globes.

I found these mini mason jars with handles at the Dollar Tree and the hearts at Target.  All the other supplies were in my craft stash.

First, I put a dab of hot glue on the bottom of the little pink bottle brush tree and placed it in the mini mason jar.

Then I added some of the faux snow left over from Christmas.

 Next, I added a pink heart for Valentine’s Day.

A decorative cord tied around the top just for fun.

A pink heart is hot glued to the top to co-ordinate the top with the heart inside the mini mason jar.

Mini Mason Jar Waterless Heart Snow Globe

Since I had all the supplies handy and extra mini mason jars, I made a few more waterless snow globes.

Thank you for joining me for Simple Sunday.

Simple Sunday

My friend Donna from Distressed Donna Down Home has a series she calls “Quickies” that she posts on Sunday.  It gave me the inspiration to start a similar series called “Simple Sunday”.

My first Simple Sunday post is a quick and easy project that takes just a few minutes ~ a super easy Valentine wreath.

Remember the set of three wreaths from my stash?  I used the middle size heart to make this Valentine wreath leaving me with the large and small hearts.

They were on my breakfast room table one inside the other waiting to re-enter the stash when inspiration struck.

 I went to my ribbon supply to see what I had to tie the two wreaths together and make a hanger.  The stash produced a little spool of cotton tape with red stripes that I got for $1 at Target in Bullseye’s Playground.

The inside of my front door was looking a bit forlorn since all the Christmas decor came down so a Valentine wreath is just what it needed.  Once I saw it hanging on the door it seemed a little too simple so a few vintage inspired valentines made it so much more fun.  My granddaughters actually squealed when they saw it.

Thank you for dropping by today.

How to Make a Quick and Easy Valentine’s Day Wreath

Today I’m showing you how to make a quick and easy Valentine’s Day Wreath.

It was inexpensive too.

When I saw this red and pink pom pom scarf during my Saturday thrifting trip a wreath immediately sprang to mind.  So for a dollar, I couldn’t go wrong.

I had a set of three heart-shaped vine wreaths on hand in my thrifted craft stash.

Now I had to pick the one that would work best.  Reminiscent of the three little bears first I tried the large heart but the scarf wasn’t long enough and the small wreath wasn’t really the size I wanted.  So I was giddy when the medium size wreath was just right.

Starting at the bottom and working my way around the heart I hot glued the scarf to the heart.

So there you have it, one quick and easy Valentine’s Day Wreath.  As for supplies, the Dollar Tree has heart-shaped wreaths and you could buy an appropriately colored scarf at the thrift store and add your own pom poms.  You would still have a quick and easy inexpensive wreath.

Impromptu Valentine’s Day Tea Party

We really didn’t have anything planned for Valentine’s Day so we decided to have an impromptu tea party with items that we had on hand.

Valentine tea title

 We served ourselves sweets, berries, and a nice Taylors of Harrogate, Yorkshire Gold black tea.

Valentine Tea Party 5

Since we were working with what we had on hand we raided the pantry and found a few things.

Valentine Cupcakes

 On Friday I bought mini cupcakes for my granddaughter so there were a few of those left.

Valentine Tea 3

We had some two bite brownies so I fancied them up a bit with a little cool whip and a raspberry.   I love raspberries with sweets so I added a bowl to the table.

Yummies

It all made for a pretty tasty little plate.

Rose Teapot

We used my delightful rose shaped teapot.  I found this beauty in a thrift store a while back.

Valentine tea party

You may recognize the bottom teacup from FTT 69 Vintage Finds.  The teacup on top is one I inherited from my mother’s collection.

Valentine Tea 3

The Fire King Jadeite creamer and sugar bowl are a recent ETSY buy.

Joy Heart

I found this chiming silver metal heart-shaped bell last week but forgot to include it in my weekly Vintage Finds post.  It has JOY engraved on one side and when you pick it up it has a the most lovely deep melodic chime.

Valentine Tea 4

Thank you for dropping by and Happy Valentine’s Day.
