Hello! Can you believe there are only 2 more days until February?! Valentines is just around the corner, so I thought I would share a Valentines tablescape and my ‘formal’ living room and dining room. I am making the most progress on this room so far.

I was contacted by Oriental Trading to put together something Valentine related and since I love dressing up my table, that’s what I went with. I’m so excited how this turned out! I can’t wait to show you, so here we go! Warning-there are a lot of pictures!
I started out with a layered place setting for each person. The little clear favor box holds some treats and is layered on top of a pink confetti plate. Next comes a silver chevron printed scalloped edge plate and then a silver charger. I added a birch design gold and white napkin and a silvertone feather place card holder. I love these feathers! They look so elegant! For the place cards, I printed out the names on the computer and then layered them over some pink scrapbook paper.
I also received these silver metal lanterns from Oriental Trading. I love lanterns, so these were an obvious choice. I added warm white fairy lights inside to add a little romance.
I absolutely love how the centerpiece/runner came together! I was inspired by a couple of other blogs I looked at and couldn’t wait to try it myself. I started out with orange branches from in my yard. I layered in some eucalyptus from Michaels and then added the beautiful pink silk peonies. I love how full it looks and the greenery is the perfect touch.
Here is the table looking back to my hutch. I had a built-in hutch at my last house that was probably 3 times this size. I was able to go through all my dishes and get rid of a lot, but I also added shelves in here to display the rest of the dishes.
I added these fun garlands to the shelves too. I had the pink pom-pom garland and then added the silver flutterball garland too. The pink tulle pom-poms add just the little touch of pink to the decor.
I added some yummy sweets to my beverage cart. You can see its makeover here. I added some different layers with the cake plates and some cute little straws in the mason jar.
I found these cute little bottles of Martinellis and covered the label with a Valentine one I found over at How to Nest for Less. The pink and turquoise were the perfect colors!
I made some sweets too. They don’t look the prettiest, but they sure taste good!
I love having this capiz shell chandelier over the table! It adds the best beach look to the room. The metallic lily hanging paper lanterns make it look like a party! The gold and silver were the perfect accents to the rest of the decor.
Here is a wider view so you can see a little bit how the room is laid out. This would be the back part of the room. To the left is an entrance into the kitchen and table area. The wicker chairs at the bottom of the picture face the front window where the daybed is.
I have my faux fireplace in here since the family room already has a fireplace. I made this mantle from an old headboard and I love how it turned out!
The daybed used to be Haley’s and worked perfect here in the living room. Do you see who is hiding among the pillows? She loves it here because she can see what is going on in the neighborhood.
Mom, do you remember this little heart pillow? You made it for me way back when I was in grade school! It must be an antique!
Here are a few more favorites.
I just had to show you my helpers too.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
