DIY Valentine's Day Table


Valentine’s Day should be a special day, whether you are single or taken and whether you go out or stay in. Personally, my husband and I aren’t the biggest V-Day celebrators. We don’t enjoy the set menu and the huge crowds at restaurants. We prefer to have a nice, casual yet special night in. To make it a little different from most nights, I thought I would whip up a little dinner tablescape that is

1. I decided to use four sheets of chalkboard scrapbook paper (yes they have this – isn’t that awesome!?). I laid them out on the table to the length I wanted and then just taped them together on the backside.

    Not sure why you rubbed chalk over the paper before writing on it? Thx

    Can you tell me specifically what brand the wine glasses are and where you got them? I'm trying to match this same glass, that I now have one of but can't find them again. I think they may be Bordeaux glasses, but really need to find that specific stem.

      Haha! Great! Here I was thinking I wouldn't mind spending $30 ea. if they were the right thing. Hopefully they are real glass and not plastic. $1ea. would be fantastic! Thanks so much for your time.
