A Floating Heart Table Starter! Company is Coming and Cupid is Too!

Posted on Feb 12 2015 - 3:27pm by Brenda Meehan

With company coming, and love in the air….we dressed up our table in a hurry with floating hearts standing at attention. This 3P table tip gave our “scape” a pro-feel through an added layer of dimension. This creation was crafted in minutes, and had all of our hearts a-flutter with paper hearts a-floating! This table is timely for Valentine’s Day, or could even be used for a romantic anniversary later in the year.


By pooling a jeweled red table runner around our standing candle holders, and swapping our orange-red candles for sequined beauties…our dining room table transformed into true love masterpiece. Simple sequined placemats anchored gold chargers adorned with red napkins, which were folded into heart-shaped triangles and propped just right.


Adding light and extra shimmer was a cinch with our favorite crystal candle holders each packed with a tea light. Scattering a few red paper heart doilies around the table for balance and color gave us the idea to “float” a few paper hearts that would double as place cards.


By “hooking” each doily on a small stemmed picture holder through a hole in the paper…it gave each piece the illusion of flight!  These weighted picture holders were perfect to “hook” each heart on just like so:

We added our guest of honors name as well as our own to these hearts and stood back to admire our “hearty-work” before our heart healthy meal! Click HERE if you missed it!


Last year readers were sure to share what got their hearts a-float with parties and ladies lunch ideas…let’s wear our hearts and ideas on our sleeves! Share how you’re loving your Valentine’s Day!
