Hearts, Lips, and Bears

Cookie Cutters Are Not Just For Cookies!

I have cookie cutters for every season, but only make cut out cookies at Christmas! I decorate with them and don’t limit them to the kitchen either.

I attached cookie cutters to my grapevine wreath by tying them on with brown yarn.

On the windowsill, I used cookie cutters to spell out the word LOVE and put the XO cookie cutters in the two side windows.

I hang a string of lights in a heart shape in the front window. The lights are incandescent red, pink, and white. They give a soft glow to the window.

I picked up a votive candle holder with “XO” and “lips” on it. I set a lip-shaped candle on one side and an XO candle on the other. I decided to put a pink candle in the votive candle holder because you couldn’t see the red or white details when I used those colors. That set my color scheme for this year: red, white, black with a touch of pink.

The vignette in my bedroom is the exception. It is cherubs and a music box in pink. It is below our wedding picture which has a pink mat. Our wedding colors were pink and baby blue. It was the 1980’s; pink was a trendy color!

The color scheme is best reflected in the guest towels in the girl’s bathroom. I pinned a large heart pin on top of the pink washcloth.

I made a centerpiece using my “Apple Blossom” china because it has burgundy, red, and pink in it. On Valentine’s Day, all I will have to add is silverware to set the table for two. The candy heart in the center is metal and empty! I kept it because it is cute and sturdy.

I moved the Cardinal mugs to the china cabinet and added a glass bird bath with two birds and a glass candy kiss.

I didn’t use a tablecloth on the dining room table because I plan on removing the centerpiece and laying out my daughter’s tee-shirt quilt pieces. We still haven’t decided on the design. I have enough squares for 2 quilts! I wanted a circular centerpiece and had to take two pictures to show it to you.

I hope you got an idea or two for adding a touch of Valentine’s to your home.
