Valentine's LOVE on the Plate Rack

I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day but somehow this year I felt like giving it  a try.  I've seen several bloggers do some real cute things that inspired me.  

Still using my little faux cedar trees.  I re-used these glittery red hearts that I first showed on a little topiary I made up and showed on my Valentine Sweetness tablescape as seen "here"

The sun made an appearance which added to the LOVE.   

I kept the dinner plates up here as seen "here" which make a good backdrop for the salad plates.

I wanted something confectionery feeling so I layered pink and red together.  The Ruby red Mosser glass plates enhanced the design and color of the pink rose plates that were gifted to me by my Mom.  I used them in my first blog tablescape as seen "here".

Simple but just enough for me!

Some of you may remember the Love marquee sign I found at T.J.'s and posted back in mid December as seen "here".  There is a battery back for them and it even has a timer so they'll come on for 4 hrs each day.  These new LED lights are so much easier on batteries- gotta LOVE that!

Valentine's LOVE 
on the Plate Rack


  1. Liz,
    I adore your L O V E letters on the plate rack, dear friend!!!
    I agree, just enough Valentine's Day decor!!!
    I, too, have added a touch for the Hoiday!!!

  2. Oh how I've always loved pink and red together! Beautiful plates and together, beautiful! I want some love letters now!!!

  3. LOVE-ly! Those red hearts look perfect on your little cedar trees (I always thought those were real!) and the plates just pop against the terrific black backdrop. Your LED sign is the icing on the cake!

  4. Your Love sign is so cute and perfect for Valentine's Day, nice that it has LED lights. Yes, your hearts are great on the cedar trees. Not sure if I'll get any Valentine's out this year with the remodeling going on.

  5. Absolutely fantastic Liz.
    I love those dishes against the black dish rack and the LOVE Marques sign is just a cherry on top of a lovely cake..... Did I say cake?! 😜

  6. This is a wonderful LOVE display! How cool are those letters! Are they battery operated? Sheila

  7. I am so not an every occasion decorator so kudos to you for stepping out for Valentine's.

  8. You've inspired me! I have the same type of tree just sitting on my buffet in the kitchen. I should heart it. Ha! I adore your plates. Confectionery is the right term for sure! They remind me of lacy cookies. You're all set for Valentine's. Lovely to see your Love light shining brightly!

  9. Such a beautiful arrangement. Love the plates, along with your cedar trees all decked out with valentines. The letters are a great addition.

  10. I LOVE this Liz! From the sign to the pretty confectionery plate stacks to the heart hung little trees, it's Valentine adorable!

  11. Love your pretty plates, I have to start decorating for V day!

  12. The perfect vignette for Valentine's Day!....oh and love that "LOVE" sign!!!

  13. Oh wow, the sign and the plates make the absolute perfect Valentine's vignette. Over and over I find myself thinking that you are just really talented at creating pretty little spots.

    Happy Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

  14. Hi Liz, I love the LOVE sign and your pretty plates in the plate rack! Happy Valentine's Day!! Jan ♥

  15. Oh Liz I am just in LOVE with the red plates you have displayed. They are indeed a true treasure.

  16. Hi Liz. Just wanted to let you know that your plate rack is being featured Thursday at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Hope you'll join us again. :)

  17. Liz, I saw your feature and had to hop on over here to see your plate rack. I love how you layered the two plates and the LOVE sign is just perfect on the bottom. Did you make your plate rack or did you purchase it because I'm thinking that I'd love to squeeze one into my kitchen!!!
