I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day like I used to when the kids were younger and I taught primary school. But this year I thought I’d play around with a vignette on the sideboard in the breakfast nook.
It was fun gathering romantic notions from around the house that I already had.
I used one of my grain sack runners with a red stripe as the base.
I found the round enamel “14” in Paris. It’s also the date of my wedding anniversary.
I have a couple of these plateau baskets and they make excellent displays because of the flat surface.
My husband and I love our Bialetti expresso maker. It’s the old fashioned traditional way to make espresso. The espresso cups and saucers came from Williams-Sonoma and the toile heart was a gift from my friend, Cat.
These red toile napkins are from Williams-Sonoma and the matching table cloth is on the dining room table.
I put M & M’s in one of my French jam jars and added it to the cherub compote.
I’m definitely enjoying my new chalkboard from Ballard Design.
I cut out some toile hearts and added the string!
I’m using some of these same items and working on a vignette for the dining table using a painted tool box. I’ll show you that later.
Hope you’re having a marvelously romantic week before Valentine’s Day!
