A Heart Full Of Love On The Plate Rack

Prepping for Valentine's Day
I've finally made it to start decorating for Valentine's Day.  I limit it to this area and it adds just enough happiness to make me smile!  

 New this year I had to pick up the King of Hearts because he goes with my Queen of Hearts from last year (Pier 1).

 I love her the most- her details are the cutest!  I used her for a tablescape last year that you are welcome to visit "here"  She's adorable from top to bottom!

 When it comes time I will put a small cake or cupcakes on this cake stand.  For now the candies in the oversized mug will do!  These a strawberry flavored chocolates!

 XO plates from Sur La Table and the glass heart from Pier 1.  Brass hearts from TJ Maxx last year.

I decided to extend the decorating all the way to the bottom so I changed out the lantern to a white one and added puffed red hearts to the little pine trees.

 I was hunting through my dishes for something black and white and decided to go on the wild side with these animal print dishes made by Mikasa.

 The heart stemware was from TJ Maxx several years ago.

 A little more hearts added to the two candle sconces.
