Easy Valentine table

Wishing for a sweet way to decorate the table for our daughter’s birthday and Valentine’s Day, I put 88-cent candles into vases that I already owned with a dab of hot glue at the base of each candle for stability. I poured in a combination of candy hearts and mini marshmallows. The table runner was a $2 scrap of clearance fabric at Wal-Mart that took ten minutes to iron and hem. Sweet fun.

  5. I got a bunch of really tall extra-skinny red candles for ten cents apiece at a thrift store. No candleholders small enough to hold them. . . I’m TOTALLY doing this! Thanks, Mary!

  6. Love your table decorations!

  8. Love it! Very clever.

  9. What a pretty and simple idea! I think I might try this minus the candles with a collection of bud vases I have.
