Vintage Valentines Decor:
If you are just arriving from County Road 407 …Welcome! I am sure you enjoyed Cindy’s beautiful vintage inspired table as much as I did! Of course, I also adore her decorating style and her lovely blog as well!
For my post, I decided to design two Valentine’s Day vignettes using flowers and a few vintage items…
Beginning with my first vintage inspiration…floral napkins.
A few years ago, my mother-in-law handed down these very special napkins to me. Aren’t they beautiful? She embroidered them herself and I am so honored to have them in my possession. Since she created them when my husband was just a baby, they definitely count as vintage! Although she gifted me a whole set, I chose the pink and white ones for my Valentine’s vignettes.
In my first Valentine vignette, I paired the napkins with pink tulips.
Of course, you have to have flowers for Valentines Day…and you can’t go wrong with pink! Not only is this a great look for Valentine’s Day, but it could work well into spring. Ah, spring…the thought of it makes me smile after the frigid winter we’ve had so far! For more tulip inspiration, be sure to read my ways to decorate with tulips post.
Besides the napkins, I knew I must have more vintage items around the house to work with. After all, I have been married for 20 years. Basically, half of our things should be vintage by now!
My second inspiration – the vintage silver bowl.
Not only is it a pretty piece, but it has special meaning to us. The silver bowl belonged to my father-in-law who passed away a few years ago. Engraved on the other side of the bowl is his name and an award he received back in the 70’s.
Since I thought the vintage silver bowl would look beautiful filled with flowers, I polished it up a bit. Then I simply placed a grid of tape across the top. This is an easy way to arrange flowers in a bowl without having to use floral foam. If you plan to create a floral arrangement this Valentine’s Day, remember that simple tip!
After the tape was in place, I simply cut some grocery store flowers down to size and placed them into the grid. A fluffy hydrangea filled up a good portion of the arrangement. To fill in around the hydrangea, I used pink and purple flowers. Of course, I must remember to keep it watered…no one wants to see wilted Valentine’s Day flowers!
Although, the flower arrangement makes a lovely centerpiece for the table, I decided to combine it with some other pieces for a vintage Valentine’s vignette…
Luckily, I also came across a pretty ceramic heart that my mom bought for me years ago. Certainly, a perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day vignette.
From there, I grouped everything together in a wood tray I recently bought at World Market. We all love our trays, don’t we? To see more round tray ideas, read How to Decorate with Round Trays.
With the addition of some pearls and a framed “I Love You” heart, the 2nd vintage Valentine’s Day vignette was complete.
Pink hearts and flowers… Obviously, lots of love in this vignette. Maybe I can throw in some candy and we’ll be ready for Valentine’s Day!
Don’t you agree that sentimental items make decorating much more meaningful? If you look around your home, I am sure you will find special pieces you can use in your Valentine’s Day decor. Maybe you’ll even find some vintage treasures you didn’t know you owned!
Hopefully, you enjoyed my Vintage Valentine’s Day Vignettes!
