This weekend was just what the doctor ordered.
I nursed my cold, attended an amazing craft and hobby show in Los Angeles and decorated my table for Valentine's Day.
I'll have to wait a few weeks to show you the incredible ribbons, fabric, trims and flowers I found at the show but I can show you my table.
It all started with this
I first saw this cupcake stand at Christmas time. My daughter in law's mother gave her one for Christmas and after helping decorate hers I knew I had to have one too.
A few weeks ago Jenn's mom surprised me by sending me one. I immediately started planning how I would decorate it. I started searching for candle holders to go there on those twelve arms, but everything I found was eight to twelve dollars each and there was no way I could buy enough for my project at those prices so I made a trip to Smart and Final for these.
...a snip of silk ribbon.
It all took just minutes per candle.
I think they turned out pretty cute.
I filled my antique apothecary jars with cheap candy from Smart and Final
and sprinkled the table top with Red Hots.
The Valentine dishes and linen are from Home Goods.
