We don't do too much for this holiday because it falls exactly one week before my birthday. We just aren't the type of people to go crazy two weeks in a row. Our Valentine's is usually just a nice dinner cooked at home and an exchange of cards. If Jeff buys me some flowers he gets bonus points ;) (hint, hint)
But back to the centerpiece...
(gotta love her) but experimented on my own. I'll be sure to do a post on how I did this in the future. In the end Martha was right, the ones with only a little sparkle in the white look the best (I should have known).
The conversation hearts were a must. How can you have Valentine's day without them. That little candy bowl has become one of my favorite things I own. I got it when I was a kid at a flea market in Martha's Vineyard. I almost gave it away once (that was scary, I decided I was too old to have silly little candy trays, puft) but held onto it and I love it again.
(I asked Jeff to take the rest of them to work so I wouldn't gorge myself).
