Kid Decorated Valentine's Day Table



For other great ideas go to Scribbit's Winter Bazaar and Rocks In My Dryer's Works For Me Wednesday.



If your Valentine's Day is like mine it is spent home with the kids, so let them decorate and have fun with it. We hung hearts from the chandelier, made utensil holders, coasters and candy cups with a message. And we also made Valentine votive candles.



For this place setting, we made the felt heart utensil holder, the CD coaster and the candy message holder or place marker.





















It may not make the evening romantic but fun.

What a great idea. I think so many of us spend Valentine's day in an un-romantic way. So, these are some cute fun ideas to try!

Wow, you've really got that table looking nice--my kids love it when I get it together enough to do something pretty like that. Makes the meal so fun.

Gabriel said...

I love the way you have decorated the table. It's something I'm always wishing we could do at home.

Maybe for this Valentine's Day...

The utensil holders are a great idea. I'll have to put it on my very long "craft to do list".
