A Kitschy Valentine's Day Table

You may not have noticed, but I don't have a decorating gene in my body. (Then again, if you have noticed, no need to tell me, I know!) Lacking that gene means that holidays are fraught with stress over what to do to show I realize there is a holiday happening.

This weekend is a prime example. Valentine's Day. I should do something, right? But what's the right something?

I thought about it, looked around, tried to find photos of what other B&B's do, couldn't find anything that spoke to me. So, I looked around the house. What did I have for Valentine's Day that I could use in the Inn?

And this is what I found: Conversation Hearts and antique Valentine's postcards. A couple of yards of fabric for tablecloths.

And this is what I did with them-

Happy Valentine's Day all you wild and crazy kids!

Those tables look adorable!! I am totally stealing your idea for next Valentine's Day...when we hopefully won't be recovering from 40 inches of snow.

Shannon- Yeah, I was jealous of how nice your blog looks, so I went looking for a new template for mine. Yours rocks!

Jeanne- Steal away. Hopefully, we HAVE snow next year! Maybe you can convince it to come up this way...
