If you are a returning reader to my blog then you know that we had a baby recently. With that being said it has been hard to get out and have a date night with my husband. I’m a nursing Mama and it brings more anxiety to me to be away than it’s worth sometimes. Our little Gabi loves to eat all the time and I just don’t love giving her bottles all the time and frankly I don’t have the back up supply to do a ton of bottles. Anyway that’s a whole other blog post! 🙂
Since I love making tablescapes I decided to create a date night in for my husband and I this year for Valentine’s Day. This way we can get our older daughter to bed and get our little one to rest a little and it’s a fancy date night in. I love taking things from around my home to create tablescapes. Who says you have to spend a lot of money to create a fun and beautiful table?
Since I have a major sweet tooth I wanted candy to be the centerpiece of my tablescape. I decided to go with Oriental Trading’s Red Candy Buffet Assortment. I also wanted to add a few decorative pieces to my table so I also got the Glass Jar Set.
Like I have said before, the key to a great tablescape is to have differing levels of height. If you have a shorter item in the center of the table you want to balance it with a taller item. Mirrors are also a great way to add depth to your table. It helps reflect colors and lights to give it more interest.
Thank you to Oriental Trading for working with me so I can make a perfect date night in for me and husband! What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? Will you be staying in or going out?! Happy Friday friends and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
