Sweet Tooth

I've done a good job throughout my pregnancy of keeping my weight in check.

But I have a feeling these last seven weeks are going to be harder.

Not because I'm hungrier, but because I decided to put this little Valentine's display on my dining room table.

I can't seem to walk by it without grabbing some candy from one of the jars!

This was really easy to put together.

I found the tray at the Salvation Army last month for $1.99.  It looked like this:

After I removed all of the magazine pictures from it and used some "Goo Gone," Jason hit it with a fresh coat of white spray paint.

The apothecary jars I've found thrifting over the years (and a couple on clearance at AC Moore), so I just filled them with a variety of Valentine's candy.

The rose ball was originally created for Imani's birthday mantel.  I found the "Love" heart at Hobby Lobby for 67 cents and just stuck it in the top.

I got out my stamps and made the XO tags along with the Happy Valentine's Day card.

And there you have it . . . a little Valentine's display that's tempting everyone in the house!

  1. Stephenie,

    Adore you Valentine's Centerpiece! How sweet (in more than way.) I can't believe someone used that tray the way it looked before Jason painted it.
    I don't think you need to worry about gaining weight. You're beautiful.

    Your Friend,

  2. Very cute, and tempting.:) I am in the middle of making one of those cute little crepe paper flower balls and it takes forever. Good luck with keeping the weight in check!

  3. What a cute display! I wanted to do one with chocolates...but...decided against against pregnant :) (by a long shot!) but weight has always been a problem...always!

    I really DO need to do something for Valentines Day though...and soon. Gosh, time does race by fast!

  4. White spray paint works magic. I need to buy some (as soon as this ice storm melts) for a few projects.

  5. I would love to do a display in chocolate with red hearts to dispaly around, but as you know your father could not take the temptation. So, needless to say I am keeping Valentine's day simple. Window and door decoration of red and pink and white. And a card for HIM and maybe a shirt of some sort....we shall see.
    I wish I could decorate with candy like you did!
    It looks fabulous!
