I dropped my daughter off at dance last night, and had an hour to burn, so I went into a local grocery store, and found the MOST ADORABLE Wizard of Oz valentines. I bought two boxes. I didn't know what I was going to do with them, but when I woke up this morning... it came to me. I decided we will have a Wizard of Oz themed family Valentines dinner. We are having it tonight, because tomorrow is super busy for everyone.
I already had all the supplies from the Wizard of Oz Halloween Party I threw a few years back, so it was super easy (and free) to decorate. I just added the pink and hearts this time.
I put an adorable valentines card at each place. I great hint is that if you are setting a table with the same colored plates, it works well to place the napkin between them so it will appear as if there is more depth and visual interest.
I love the layered dishes and linens. It is my favorite thing to do when setting a fancy table. The small red cups will have a t-lite in them at dinner.
I even pulled out the canvas I made for my Halloween party.
Do you like the napkins I hung on my light fixture? I love the glitter hearts. Reminds me of Dorothy's shoes.
I LOVE the pink glasses my sweet and thoughtful sis gave me a few years ago.
Do you like the hint of the tin man with the metal containers?
These are the valentines, and I kind of want to blow this one up, and frame it for Valentines in the future.
I will write a sweet little love note to each person in the family on the back of each one. I love how they are tucked into the napkin.
I plan to play, "pin the Heart on the Tin Man," and watch Wizard of Oz tonight. Please visit my Wizard of Oz pinterest board for more inspiration.
What are you doing for Valentines Day?
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
