{Valentine} Sweetheart Table

Just when you thought I had no more pink and red left in me, I'm busting out one final Valentine themed post. Dinners at our house are a casual affair, with no real food table settings. The kids are fairly indifferent to holiday decor throughout the house, but they do love a fancy table...so I set one just for them! And to make it even more interesting, I challenged myself to create it by shopping only my house and the Dollar Store!

All the items by themselves aren't particularly interesting (except the gold flatware, that's fancy all by itself!), but piled up together are really cute. The felt placemats, napkins, glass plates and doilies are all Dollar Store. The polka dot 'tablecloth' is a scrap of fabric from my stash.

My penmanship is serial killer questionable, so I printed the kid's names from the computer, and traced them on the doily. They are layered under the glass plates as placecards.

The flatware is arranged as a nod to 'XO.' Are X's hugs or kisses? (Update: Heather just told us Xs are kisses...for when lips touch...and Os are hugs...arms wrapping around each other! Thanks girlie!!)

For fun table confetti, I punched hearts from paint swatches and scrapbook paper.

My tiered-platter is placed in the middle for height, and decorated with cupcakes (toothpicks from Dollar Store), and the Burlap Treat Bags. The pink glasses are World Market, and the red stripey straws leftover from this party.

Too bad we ate all the Cupcakes in a Jar. Guess we'll have to make do with these. Life has such hardships.

There was more than enough sugar, but I couldn't resist making little favors...using plastic cups, heart picks, and crinkle paper from Dollar Store. The little flags are made with washi tape.

My precious Valentine is happy! My other little Valentine forbid me to post his picture, since he hadn't yet fixed his hair.

How about that sweetheart of a table for under $10?! Having it makes dinners a little bit sweeter, and a lot more special this week. Are you hosing down your table with pinks and reds?

  5. Cute table and I love the price! My daughter asked me the same question the other day: which was the hug and which was the kiss in XO?

  6. So cute! X's are kisses (when your lips touch). O's are hugs (imagine your arms hugging someone).

  8. This is SO cute! I wish Valentine's {and most holiday's except Christmas} were big here in Scotland. Looks like a lot of fun!

    I have a friend who decorates her table for every holiday. They have a gourmet meal and the kids dress up! I've been thinking about what fun it would be to do that with my little family. I'll have to start planning!

  9. Can't believe you were able to do all that for under $10. That's my kind of decorating. :)

  10. Ok, I think I need to hit the dollar store now! Such a cute way to start the day.

  11. I always was told that 0 were kisses from the pucker and the x's were the crossing arms of a hug.

  12. Absolutely adorbs! I love the doily idea. Those cupcakes look amazing. Want to send some to Chicago?

  13. Darling...making the flatware a "kiss" is just too cute!

  14. Such a smart idea to trace the names. Darling table. So fun to see little girl enjoying!

  15. Very cute. I love when people can create fun things from leftovers and "cheap" supplies. It's much more interesting to me than when someone goes to a schmancy fancy stores and buys everything to set out (weather table top decor or anything else!). :D

    I didn't do anything like this. The extent of my valentine decor is a valentine tree in my foyer. It's pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.

  16. Amen Cassie! Not much of a Valentine person myself, but I really appreciate the great Valentine decor you set-up, and on a $10 Budget too! Fantastic! HAppy Valentines day! Also, If you get a chance, check out my post on Martha's new crafts stuio App, I bet, if you haven't yet, WILL LOVE It! :)

  17. At first I thought you just hand-wrote those names- very impressive! The table looks so good Cass!

  18. Amazeballs!! And, I could scarf that croissant off your daughter's plate in about 30 seconds flat!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Too sweet, Cassie! Love the names on the doily!

  20. I thought I spied a croissant on her plate, and the comment above confirms it! It's almost as if you could gaze across the Seine at La Tour Eiffel whilst eating that meal- well played Ms. Sugarplum. The table looks fantastique! PS- if you tell me there's chocolate in that croissant I may have to hop on the next plane...just sayin'

  21. Such a cute and festive table! Those cupcakes looks pretty yummy....I could go for one for a midnight snack! Your daughter is adorable Cassie.

  22. Japanese Valentine gift, chocolate is the NO.1.
    I am the eldest daughter of a gift set of chocolate and tobacco.
    In junior high school and high school, she studied in the United States.
    It is a great setting.
    I am forever grateful.

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
