Valentine’s Day is a big day at our house. And my husband and kids are always as excited about it as I am because every year, I cook a special meal and deck the halls with hearts. Like I explained yesterday, I sorta dropped the ball a little this year, but hopefully, I’ve redeemed myself with this simple tablescape in the dining room.

Once again, I used wrapping paper as a table cover, as I’ve done several times now. But this time, I didn’t just use it as a runner. I laid 3 pieces of it across the table from side to side to cover the entire thing. Then I layered with my gold burlap runner for some sparkle.

My sister-in-law gave me some cute chalkboard place card stands for Christmas from this etsy shop, and I love them. They’re perfect for occasions like this.

And a little gold glitter ribbon with afelt heart glued on makes a great napkin ring.

The main centerpiece is just a gold vase I recently found at Marshall’s with a few white sticks and hanging hearts.

I found the heart tags in the Target Dollar Spot and added some gold stickers, also from the Dollar Spot.

I also re-used my moss heart from a couple years back in this Valentine vignette. And the “LOVE” letters seemed to be a good choice.

Hope you like it! My kids love it, but they’re even more thrilled with another snow day and the 6 inches of winter fun waiting to be had outside.

And my husband’s mouth is watering over the menu. Here’s what we’re having if you’re looking for ideas:
