Valentine's Day is always extra-special for us, as it's also our wedding anniversary. But this one marks a milestone -- 25 years! With our busy lives right now it doesn't really make sense for us to get away, so we're spending the holiday together as a family. I'm looking at it as a sort of four day weekend, with some fun outings, all of our favorite recipes, and plenty of treats.
In the kitchen nook I set a simple table for us to enjoy the next few days. As a base I started with this floral tablecloth, which is actually a thrifted Pottery Barn sheet!
I added some pretty roses in a tea pot,
A few candles for an evening glow,
and some dessert dishes, awaiting one of the many treats I hope to make for my family.
Some red berries, gingham ribbon, and a sweet ceramic heart decorate a simple twig wreath over our living room mirror. I bought two more of the dollar store kalanchoes, and I think I'll paint up these clay pots with something Valentine-ey. Wouldn't red and white checks be cute?
I'm so ready to start baking some yummy treats and desserts! What are you doing for Valentine's Day?
