I met up with Abby again last week to capture her brilliant idea of a valentine date night in. Doesn’t that sound just right? It sure does to me!  No crowds, no lines, no reservations, no uncomfortable clothes. Simple and cozy. That’s my kind of romance.

“Put the kiddies to bed, and have your valentine meet you in the kitchen for a fun and flirty night…just the two of you.”– Abby

Yes, please, I think I will! *details below.

 To get this look… from Abby:

Start with a fun placemat, I used this World Market Cotton Crocheted Placemat (its currently sold out, but this placemat would work as well).

Use an everyday small salad plate, layer with a clear glass plate (I used my own pink depression plates, you can find a lot on etsy), and one more texture plate. I used these wooden plates to go with the small wooden heart.

My table was made up of vintage finds and modern elements… pinks from light to bright, purples, and metallics like copper and gold. I used gold vintage goblets that I found at the antique fair a couple years ago with purple succulents and magenta + plum carnations sat on top of them.

Little wooden hearts gently placed on top of loose flowers inside an acrylic square box, and  all glassware from  The Little Market,

Natasha Kolenko created the beautiful floral arrangements.

Have fun being creative and loving on your Valentine, the most important part of this! xo
