~Valentine's Decor via Dollar Tree~

Hello everyone! I was so excited when Debbie announced that she would be doing a 
Dollar Tree Valentine's Party
(I love the challenge of doing things on a budget.) I don't really decorate for 
Valentine's Day;
 but, I thought it would be fun to put together a little setting, on the coffee table, near the fireplace.


 

For Christmas, my sweet mother-in-law sent us this wonderful table throw. (She knows me so well!) I thought the deep red brocade fabric, with the gold velvet and rope trim, would be a great romantic starting point for this setting...


This year, instead of red chargers, I used my gold ones, to coordinate with the tablecover. I also used my basic white dinnerware; and I layered it with a scrolled salad plate.


I chose this particular plate because the distressed finish reveals a touch of red underneath...


On top of each setting, I placed a heart-shaped dish of candy from The Dollar Tree.


Then, to each setting, I added champagne flutes that I already had and a couple of fun, red, whimsical table accents, also from The Dollar Tree.


While I was gathering these items, I came across these sweet birds that I bought last Spring. I decided to add them to the mix.


I finished off the setting with gold flatware, red rose petals, and clear votive holders. Instead of red roses, I purchased one bouquet of white hydrangeas, pulled the heads off, and placed them around the table.


Total spent = $8.00!!

Here is a breakdown:
Two heart shaped bowls w/candy- $2
One bag of red rose petals- $1
One bunch of white hydrangeas- $1
Four clear votive holders-$4
(I already had everything else on the table.)

So, for very little money, visit your local Dollar Tree and create a romantic setting for Valentine's Day!!


I hope you've enjoyed your visit today!!
Happy Decorating!!
