Valentine's Day Vignette

I've mentioned before that I have ZERO Valentine's decorations.  We don't usually make a big deal about Valentine's day and I don't decorate through the house, but this year I thought I would create little a Valentine's display on the buffet in my dining room. 

 The LOVE banner was made from lace heart doilies I found on Target's dollar isle, pink vinyl letters(I cut using my Cricket), and some red and white ribbon I had on hand.

This mini wooden tray had candy in it that was given to my husband as a gift.  I empty the candy that has been in there for a YEAR, and used some pink scrapbook paper to create a cute piece.  For the large heart I used one of the same paper heart doilies, hot glued a smaller heart of crystals in the center and then glued red tissue paper along the outside similar to the process I used here.  The "love" and smaller heart were cut using my cricket. 

 The blocks and Eiffel Tower box are from the Target dollar isle as well.   

I added some ruffle ribbon I made using felt circles to one candle and some heart ribbon and a sparkly felt heart to the other.
What Valentine's Day display is complete without some conversations hearts.

My Valentine's Day vignette makes me smile every time I look at it.  Hope it makes you smile too :)

And HERE is more great inspiration for Valentine's decor.
