Blue Valentine Vignette

Monday, January 21, 2013

This weekend I made a Valentine vignette for our blue and white guest room to welcome the holiday of love.  I decided to work with the existing decor colors instead of the traditional reds and pinks often associated with Valentines Day.  Since we have many elements of nature throughout our decor I used river rocks, little bird candles and an apothecary jar to create the vignette.  The jar is filled with florist's moss and a wooden heart painted gold then stenciled with the word love.  A blue embroidered pillow and damask fabric draped in the background reflect the style of the room.  

Although I did not make this Valentine heart, it would be simple to create one like it using a wooden, ceramic, or paper mache heart, some gold paint and a stencil of the word love.  Displaying it under glass gives it a bit more sparkle and the moss provides support.
