Valentine's Day Entry Table
Wednesday, February 6
I have finally found a mirror that works with our entryway table!! I've been fussing over this space since we moved in last year. Eventually I'd like something a bit more colorful and unique up there, but for now I'm satisfied with the way it looks.
My favorite part is that I can decorate it for holidays! I'd always imagined having a mirror with a cute little bunting hanging across it. As soon as we got that baby on wall, I grabbed my Valentine's Day bunting from the mantel and hung it up. I loved it so much that I decided to add a few more holiday decorations to the space.
The first thing I did was put up these cute little accordion circles. I used brown kraft paper I had lying around, scrapbook paper I had left over from the bunting, and some red glitter foam left over from last year's Halloween costume.
The mini hearts picture frame was inspired by this picture from The Idea Room. The chalkboard love print is from U-create. I love the chalkboard print (although I printed it out a little too big - I need to scale it down to better fit the frame), but I found this print from Tried and True and I'm kind-of obsessed with it. I might end up switching the two out. And bonus: it's a coloring page printable, so I can even add my own colors to it.
I made the mini hearts picture frame with leftover scrapbook paper from the bunting. The little hearts are just held on with a tiny dab of Elmer's Glue. The paper itself isn't actually secure in the frame - it's sitting completely loose. I really like the picture underneath it and plan on keeping it. So I measured and cut the scrapbook paper to fit right into the frame. That way I can change it out once Valentine's Day is over with or just use it as is.
Believe it or not, but I cut out all of those little mini hearts by hand! Luckily it didn't take very long, and I ended up with these fun strips of heart shaped cut-outs. They were so pretty that I decided to wrap them around the candle. I think it adds the perfect little romantic touch.
The vases are from Ikea. They were originally in our bedroom on a dresser. I brought them down and stuck some pretty pink flowers (that were sitting in another vase) to add a finishing touch to this subtle Valentine's day look.
I'm kind-of smitten with it. I can't wait to decorate it for other holidays! I'll probably have something small up for St. Patrick's Day. I'm not huge into St. Patty's, but I married into a very Irish last name (although most of my husband's ancestors are German). My mother-in-law goes all out for the holiday - I'll have to put something up for her.
