"Love" In The Kitchen

Are you guys ready for Valentine's Day? I can't believe it's less than a month away already! I decided since I don't have a lovely mantel to deck out, I'd decorate my kitchen hutch and table instead. I love decorating for each holiday, it's so fun....and way easier than Christmas decorating.
The sun was shining super bright this morning. (Sorry for the glare)

I added this "Love Letter" mailbox and stuffed it with tissue paper and some glittery hearts. Maybe my hubby will use it....

Little E couldn't hardly wait till I was finished taking pictures so he could eat these yummy cookies. I love my milk glass cake stand, it was used for my wedding cake ;) 

An old stainless steel measuring cup holds some Sweethearts.

 I made both the "Be Mine" burlap bunting and pom-pom garland last year, and loved them so much I had to repeat the cuties. I made the "XOXO" with 2x4's spray painted white, then stenciled the letters on with craft paint.

You can't tell in the picture, but this cake stand is actually pink. I covered it in heart shaped red velvet rose petals, chocolate candy hearts, and some wooden hearts. The polka dot bands on the candles is actually tissue paper ;)

I cut some bead necklaces and laid them out around the table for a bit of sparkle.

I wrapped my existing napkin rings in the same polka dot tissue paper, and placed them atop some simple white plates and  rhinestone edged chargers. A little vintage touch was added with some playing cards, hearts of course.

If you look close you can tell the wine glasses are pink as well. (Also an item used at my wedding)

Hope Cupid is sweet to you guys! Thank you so much for stopping by,
don't forget to leave me a comment!
