Our Valentine Kitchen

Raise your hand if you're ready for Spring!  Hopefully, March will be here before we know it and bring warmer temps along with it!

And, before Valentine's Day comes and goes, I wanted to share our little ol' red and white kitchen.


I decided to "retire" the Valentine tree on the island that I've decorated the past couple of years and opted for something a bit more simple this year by just hanging a few ornaments on faux floral branches:


Glass apothecary jars are my favorite place to "showcase" anything, including these "2 cool" plastic hearts (from Michael's):


Inexpensive Valentine cookie cutters provide a fun pop of color to an otherwise plain canister:


If there's one thing that isn't "faux," it's the candy, which my son has been more than happy to empty a couple of times!  That's why there's only ONE apothecary jar sharing real treats!



Since I'm NOT an avid baker, these cute cupcake liners are better off being showcased, rather than actually used!


The pretty red/white plates I recently scooped up from Home Goods have fit in perfectly with our red/white Valentine kitchen decor!


Our breakfast table got a little hint of Valentine with more faux tulips from Michael's ... pretty soon, I'll "pluck" the red and pink ones so that only the white ones are left for Spring, which I hope gets here soon!


But, until those warmer temps greet us, I'll be tackling lots of yucky organizing projects inside!


Stay warm and dry and thanks for stopping by!

I truly love how you just throw pops of colour, and use things I would never even think of, a true talent becca!

I love how you used the pops of red and pink...just enough but not overwhelming. Your vignettes always make sense and tell a story...does "that" make sense?! (LOL)!

Hope you have a great Valentine's Day...we're off headed toward the gulf where the temps are supposed to be in the 60s...for a few days of R&R...we both need it!

I am raising both hands and jumping up and down over here, Becca! Spring can't come soon enough for me. I am done with all this snow! Your Valentine's décor looks lovely. I love the flowering branches you used on your island. I think I may just pick up tulips or daffodils when I go to the grocery store this week.

Lovely.

Do you go out and buy stuff for every season or vignette, or do you have a room somewhere filled with candlesticks, vases, pitchers, flowers, etc.?
