Valentine Decor

Happy weekend!  Sorry it has been a little quiet the last few days.  My party planning has not stopped since my husbands promotion, as I had an Army meeting luncheon to plan a few days later.  Luckily, it was for not as many people my husband had, but enough to keep me busy! Whew... no more parties for me to plan for now! I am spending this weekend creating some new work to share, but in the meantime, thought I would share some table decorations I had done for the food tables. 

This first one was the start of making the "napkin" bags.  I thought I would use more of those fun glassine bags from SRM Stickers to place a folded napkin, fork, and some candy hearts as the first step in getting food.


Here is the tray when I was done.

I decorated the bags with a strip of Washi Tape by Queen and Co., some twine from The Twinery, also from SRM Stickers, and some pre-done tags I found at HL.  Simple and makes for a nice presentation rather than just picking up a napkin and fork.

These two were some simple decorations I made to just jazz up the food table a bit.

I once saw some arrows done similar to this and I thought this would be a good easy decoration to do.  These were made using some wooden dowels, felt hearts I cut using my MFT's Hearts a plenty die-namics, some feathers, and shimmer twine from the $ spot.  I used my hot glue gun to attach it all while wrapping and gluing the twine at the top of the arrows for a more "realistic" look.  I filled a tall vase with some conversation hearts before just placing the arrows inside.  I used my MFT set of Inspired by Love for the cupid which I fussy cut out and wrapped more twine to the top of the vase before attaching cupid. 

Again, something simple using a small vase filled with conversation heart candies and some pinwheels I made to give it a more whimsical feel.  To make the pinwheels, I used some designer paper from Me & My Big Ideas and some plain colored cs from Paper Studio.  The center dowel is some heart doilies I picked up which I glued back to back and in the center of both sides, used some red felt hearts.  I finished the pinwheels by attaching some ribbon to hang down, a button in the center, and wrapped some ribbon around the vase with another doily behind it, before attaching a cupcake 3-D sticker. 

All super easy and quick to put together.  I hope I have inspired you a bit to create some Valentine décor! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
