Each year for Valentine's Day, I set a special table for the kids the night before. I don't put a lot of other decorations up around the house (I do admit to having a heart-filled shower curtain), but I like to surprise them with a festive tablescape on Valentine's Day morning.
This year, while perusing Pinterest for Valentine's Day ideas, I got a flash to combine three of my current favorite things: milk bottles, washi tape and conversation hearts.
I pulled out a plain white serving dish I picked up at Target and set to work to create an easy, fun and festive centerpiece.
What you need:
- Milk Bottles, small glass bottles or vases (I picked these up in the Target Dollar Spot)
- Serving Dish (again, picked up at Target)
- Festive Washi Tape (this was also from Target, but you could use plain pink and red)
- 1 Bag of Conversation Hearts (yes - Target)
What you do:
Decide on a pattern for your washi tape and adhere it to your bottles. I used scissors to make a rounded edge.
Line up your bottles on your serving tray.
Sprinkle conversation hearts on the tray all around the bottles (don't eat too many).
And that's it. In about a half-hour I had a fun and festive, easy-to-make Valentine's Day Centerpiece. If you didn't want to leave the hearts out, you could just put them out on Valentine's Day. Foil-wrapped chocolate hearts and kisses would look adorable too.
