Today I’m sharing my Valentine’s table with you. Specifically, my Valentine’s Day Napkins. No one could be more surprised than me!
Full disclosure: I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day celebrator. I don’t like chocolate. Hey, don’t judge! I’m not really a sweet eater, with one exception. If you are standing in front of iced sugar cookies, girl you best get out of the way! I tell you all of this because I don’t normally decorate a lot for Valentine’s Day except for my kitchen table.
As you can see from the above picture, my Valentine’s table decor is usually pretty simple
This is what I started with.
And to be honest, it was fine.
Cute, colorful and functional.
But, it bugged me.
I mean, where’s the fun in that?
So I did what we all do and hit Pinterest to see what fun ways I could spice up my Valentines’ table.
Specifically, with my napkins.
I started with fun and sweet envelope napkins.
These are fun because you can tuck sweet Valentine messages inside the flap!
Fun, but still not what I wanted.
Then I stumbled upon a heart napkin fold.
Once I folded one, I knew that it was a winner!
The only thing hard about this fold was getting the top of the heart to stay folded.
I had to iron them to stay folded under.
Honestly, if you have a lot of napkins to fold I would totally skip this design.
However, since I only had four, it was doable.
I love how my Valentine’s Day napkins and table turned out.
This table really is me.
Fun, colorful and simple.
P.S. I did break down and buy a few chocolate truffles for chocolate lovers in the family.
It is Valentine’s Day after all!
Until next time….
