Valentine Ideas

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

I never really care for the typically Valentine decor probably because I like to make most of my things.

Although I have tons of holiday decor I love creating new things. 
 This year, I found something that can be used all year long. I wasn't sure how I would use it. 
I decided to use it in a tablescape.
So I started with a little color 

...and a little LOVE!

I found this awesome blackboard and chicken wire board at Old Time Pottery. I knew this would be something I could use over and over again. I used pink and black colors. I figured I could use this in my office redo when I am through. I love the chalkboard and I wanted to do a sweet quote on it.
Valentine's Day is about love. So I thought it would be appropriate to write...

"and the greatest is love"

because it really is isn't it?

love became the main word so I created a banner with ribbon and letters

The letters I actually got from a foam puzzle. Yes, you heard right. Little trick!
I used a permanent marker and colored over the foam
(Hint: when you are done using the letters the board becomes a stencil)

then glued it to the top of the ribbon to spell out L O V E and tied it to the chicken wire

I added a love note to a bottle using tissue paper and made a message in a bottle

I rolled the tissue paper in a tube and pinch and unfolded layers to look like a rose. 

This becomes my Valentine card in this pretty crackled glass bottle

I added this all to my table along with other decor from Old Time Pottery

Festive and colorful! Isn't it?

Now I need to come up with a dinner plan!

 As you can see I didn't forget the chocolate.

Hope you are surrounded by lots of love!

Happy Valentine's Day!
