MY VALENTINES DAY TREE

This is my new Valentines Day tree....so perfect for the little red and pink hearts...I think this is my take on Susan from Between naps on the Porch's valentine tree last year...I loved it so much and I was so inspired to make a heart tree..I found the hearts last year but could never find anything to hang the hearts on.....isn't it always the way...

I was so excited when I first saw this tree, I thought for sure it would be the one for my project...last year
I found the hearts at Big Lots and Joann's and I just mixed them up on this cute tree.   I found it at Tuesday Morning for half price after Christmas it came to about 30.00 and comes in three pieces....I like it because the branches are strong and are not bendy, additional branches form the base and  is as attractive as the tree...I may even use it for my Easter Eggs...yay


This view will give you a better idea of how it looks...another cool thing I tried with the tree is to take the top and the bottom and put them together and leave out the center part, makes a smaller tree and looks great as well...The trees came in an antique gold or silver...

Champagne yay, yummy...The old champagne bucket I got on ebay for 7.00 many years age..The larger candle holders were a gift from my friend Mary at "my dogs my garden and mary" stop by and give her a visit, she is a new blogger and is having a great time meeting all of you....


I know you have spotted the sweet coffee cup and little saucer server plate, they are some of my favorite little dishes and are the perfect little sets to serve a little treat....

In this close up you can see how the plate swirls up and then down, just love that...During the holidays I served Lobster bisque in  the little cups and a small slice of a crispy baguette...they loved it..such a cute appetizer.The little faux cupcake is from Hobby Lobby...they sure help to show off the plate...

I should have warned you this post is so full of pictures, it was difficult weeding through them, do you ever have that problem?  You take alot of pictures and then have to choose the ones to show...it was especially hard on this post as I have been playing with the lighting on my camera, I have a Nikon D5100 and I love it ...so much fun to play with and is so user friendly...

You may have noticed I changed up the plate center, these are so cute they are little strainers, they are from Cost Plus...a couple of years ago...The love birds are perfect and again a gift from my friend Mary..

Pretty cozy with the fireplace on...just fyi..it is a double sided fireplace and the otherside is the den..the fireplace is very deep...
That furry throw is one of my favorite things, it is thick and soft and warm and big, what more could you ask for ...

The Heart Napkins are new this year from Home Goods...the sheer overlay sheaths are from last year and a gift from a friend...

Not a lot of candlelight pictures, if you are a follower, you know I am not so good at that, my candlelight always looks like someone turned the lights off and they look kind of dark and odd...oh well

You may remember the silver plated flatware from the GW , such a favorite of min


Ahhhh love those fun camera settings, and the hearts are tooo sweet...

It's all about the hearts.....

Time for a snuggle in the throw and have a sip of that champagne.....come on over


Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed yourself and found something that was fun to see and maybe inspired you to make your own Valentines Day table, the only thing missing is a big box of chocolates, oh well theres still time ..right...Leave a comment, I read them all and if you are not already a follower please join me ...

  7. I love it. I have a tree up in my kitchen all year round. I should have made it up for Valentines, but I did it garden already for spring. I love all the red, so bright and fun.

  10. Oh! I NEED that tree. I love that! I didn't see those at the Tues am where I shop. It is absolutely beautiful with your pretty hearts hanging on it, and I bet you'll use it frequently for other things. Your setting is so pretty. Love the sheer sheaths over the heart napkins, and oh how I would love to snuggle under that wonderful throw and have a glass of champagne from your beautiful bucket. I'm really coveting your tree though. laurie

  30. Such a cheery post. I love the heart tree and ornaments! Treats look yummy too. I also like your white chargers very much. Did I miss their origin? Your table is very attractive and thanks so much for the inspiration. I hope to find the heart ornaments at Big Lots but they are probably all gone now. Hope your Valentine's Day is wonderful.

    Appreciate your visit very much.

  31. That hummingbird is notable and the feeder. Its the smallest bird existing and surprisingly it beats its wings very fast. On the other hand, your blog layout is adorable and unique.
