The "Sweetheart Dinner" - Part 2: Sweet and Simple Centerpieces

My previous post was about gearing up for a Sweetheart Dinner of your own, with an idea for a festive runner to help set the mood. Today we're taking the decor another step further by adding a sweet and simple centerpiece. Here are a few ideas:

In the photo above, I've taken two goblets purchased at the dollar store and filled them with votive candles and Red Hots candies. Two layers of ribbon tied around the outside of the goblet was the finishing touch. It couldn't have been more simple or quick!

My friend Kris created these fun centerpieces last year. Aren't they adorable? You can find her directions here:

And lastly, my kiddos had a fun time creating these cookie bouquets with the help of the You Can Make This blog.

Simple to put together, fun to look at, yummy to eat!

What Valentine's traditions do you have in your family, and what fun Valentine centerpieces or table decor have you created? I'd love to hear about them or see them! Send me some photos---I'd love to show them!


  1. My kids would flip over making a cookie bouquet!! And we've never had a family sweetheart dinner--I love the idea of starting that tradition. So sweet--thx for sharing such great ideas :).

  2. Your Valentine's decor is adorable! I love these ideas. We're working on a few ideas over here too and I definitely need to work in some of yours. Thanks!

  3. Very cute ideas! Love the flower cookies!

  4. Oh I love seeing the one of the kids making the cookie boquet! And without a doubt one of my favorite things to have made was the sundae centerpieces with your machine embroidered words!


I love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by!
