I wanted something gorgeous for our annual Valentine's day dinner for my little family of four. I always make a yummy dinner of filet and my kids favorite mac n cheese. We light candles and put on fun music. Daddy always brings home special treats for the girls and I fill their Valentine's mailboxes full of silly little treasures. I got the inspiration from my dear friend Alice's baby shower a couple weeks back. Fantasy Floral created the sweetest centerpieces and one of the vases was on a tray. It was all white ceramic and had multiple small vases attached to the tray to create a great high-low effect. Here's my take….
What you will need:
variety of vases (2 large, 3 medium and 2 small)
glass paint ( I used Martha Stewart brand)
your favorite flowers in a variety of colors
sparkly string and pink and purple paper to cut your x and o ( I used the Cricut)
1. I picked up a variety of vases and even salt and pepper shakers from the dollar store. Be creative! You could even use a mixture of vases from flee market or from around house. I picked out this festive cherry red glass paint and applied 3 coats to all of the vases.
3. Cut their stems and start arranging to your liking. I like a variety of sizes and quantities in each vase. I've always heard the rule of thumb is keeping flowers in odd numbers.
4. I used my Cricut to make sweet little x and o for Valentine's day and glued them to sparkly ribbon I hand on hand. Voila! An inexpensive, fun project that will jazz up your table for the month! I did end up glueing my vases to the tray to keep the whole project in tact.
