Valentine’s Mantel

I’ve enjoyed sharing three Valentine’s crafts over the past two weeks and am excited to share my finished mantel. 

The red candles have a cherry scent that is quite pleasant. I usually find candles a bit strong, but these are quite pleasant.


All of the vases are vintage with the exception of the glass votives and the small silver votive.

I usually don’t usually do a themed mantel for Valentine’s Day but am quite enjoying this.

If you missed the tutorials for my Valentine’s projects, you can find the links here:

The big day will be here before we know it.  I have a feeling that there won’t be much celebrating on Valentine’s Day for us.  I’m on the tennis court until 6 pm and then Mr. SP is in two tennis contracts starting at 6 pm and won’t be finished until 9 pm.  By then I’ll be passed out on the sofa!  Our celebration just might take place on February 13. 

What about you?  Do you have big Valentine plans?

    So adorable! Your house looks festive. I have not done a thing for V-day. Guess I need to work on that!

    I think all the pink and red looks lovely. Very cheerful. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day…although we probably should. A dinner out would be nice!
