    Valentine’s Day Napkins

    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…

    Valentine’s Day Kitchen

    Decor at my house is mixed right now. I have my Valentine’s Day Kitchen and my Mardi Gras living and dining rooms. My house is so confused! Normally, my Spring decorating goes as follows: We start with Mardi Gras, then Valentine’s Day, followed by St. Patricks Day and finally Easter. However, this year Valentine’s Day is on Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras, celebrated on Fat Tuesday, is the day before Valentine’s Day.  Have I lost you yet?

    Valentine’s Day Table

    I shared with you my meager Valentine’s Day decorations last week. I guess it inspired me to go to a little more effort for the ones I love. I felt like it was the least I could do to set my Valentine’s Day table! I usually decorate my formal dining table but this time I just wanted to do this on a smaller scale using things that I already had.  Plus, the kitchen table is really where my family eats almost every meal.

    Valentine’s Chalkboard

    I cannot believe that it is already time to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Seems like it was just yesterday we were eating turkey and putting up the Christmas tree. And January. Well, I have officially dubbed it the official Month of Birthdays. My reason? Ryan, Tyler, Roxanne, Sally, Siana, Heather, Caleb,and Judy. All who have birthdays that I celebrate in the month of January. I don’t really decorate much for Valentines. We don’t even really do much in the way of gifts. Some candy, a cute little gift – that is about it. Just a little token to say I love you. My chalkboard is one of the few things I…
