Decor for the Month of Love

Let me show you how I put together a special holiday living room table vignette.

February, being the month of love, with Valentine's Day on the 14th, I am naturally drawn to hearts,  flowers, and the color, pink. 

On the coffee table that used to be my mother's, I placed a mauve and gold colored cloth my daughter bought for me in Italy. It's lovely and one of my favorite decorations.

A pink vase came down from a shelf to hold a bouquet of silk, pink and cream colored roses.  It has thin ribbons in pink and green hanging down from it. This bouquet is old and came very close to being tossed in the Goodwill  box but sentimental attachment prevented me from letting it go. (I know, I know. One day I must let things go but not yet. ha!)

Next, my sweet boy and girl sculptures were gently lifted from the mantel. (Read how they were acquired here:   Thursday, May 27, 2010.)

Do you think this a charming vignette for a month of love?

It's lovely! I was wondering how you would decorate for the holiday.
Yesterday a friend took me to lunch--we talked and talked and it was terrific:)

The nicest thing always happens just before my husband leaves for work - if he's not running late - we hold hands and he prays - for those we love and thanks God for blessing our home. Can't top that!

The mariachi's sang "Noche de Ronda" to me which is one of my very favorite Spanish songs. I loved it.

The festive Valentine vignette is lovely. I work with learning disabled children and one of them said I like when you smile at me. I get so overwhelmed with pride for my kids Icould almost cry. So far that was the best part of my day.
