Valentine's Day China Cabinet

It's been a bit since I've changed out the decor in my china cabinet and with Valentine's Day fast approaching, I decided now was the time!

After going through the bin dedicated to this special day of love I decided to stick with the traditional colors of red, pink & white.

Starting at the top, I shopped the house some and placed a thrift store mirror in the center. I pulled some faux pink and white lilies from my stash and laid them at the corner of the mirror to soften.

Next, I taped some pink scrapbook paper in the back of the shelves. White lace chargers were placed in the back of the top shelf. I added some heart shaped plates from Hobby Lobby in front of them. A red vase, once filled with flowers from Mr. B and a Be Mine plaque filled it in perfectly. 
The lower shelf has a pair of my favorite vintage white Johnson Bros dinner plates and pink rose heat salad plates from Home Goods.  The red straw heart is from IKEA from a few years ago.

For the bottom shelf I placed some red chargers from Kirkland's in the back and added a couple more Johnson Bros plates.

I filled a pair of heart shaped vases with red heart shaped beads and placed a heavenly cherub next to each one.

The angels seem to be entranced by the lyre playing of the larger cherub nestled in more beads in a replica Candlewick candy dish that was a house warming gift from my dear blogging friend Barbara.

Even though Valentine's Day is still a few weeks away, each time I walk passed this cabinet, I am reminded of how lucky I am of my last love, Mr. B!

  3. I love your Valentine cabinet display.

    I decorate for Valentine's Day by putting little vignettes all over the house, but I might have to copy your idea and dedicate one shelf to hearts.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!
