Valentine’s Day-Inspired Centerpiece

Christmas decorations came down a couple of weeks ago, and that is always bittersweet.  It’s not like the house is lacking in decor at all, but everything always looks a little bare once all of the cozy stuff gets put away.  My mom-in-law worked her magic and came up with a pretty little Valentine’s Day-inspired centerpiece for the library.

It’s simple and just slightly festive.  A beaded silver tray, two little silver mercury glass candle votives, and a big silver beaded hurricane.  She’s got a couple of these trays that are fancy pewter, but she’s also got the Target variety.  For the past several years, at Christmastime, I have seen Target put tons of this beaded silver stuff out on display near their dishes.

 Moss and little dried roses fill up the tray.  Moss is one of the most versatile decorating ingredients you can have.  It’s perfect for any season, really — you can make it work always, and it’s a great filler.

 I love how the little beading on the hurricane mimics the beading on the tray.  It’s the little things.  🙂
