MATERIALS




HOW TO MAKE IT


Determine the length of paper you need to run the length of your table, making sure to have extra to hang over the sides. For a dramatic look, let the ends touch the floor!



Using your desired writing utensil, make X's and O's in rows until your runner is covered. Done!

MATERIALS




HOW TO MAKE IT



Apply lipstick to lips and pucker up! Kiss your balloon and continue to reapply lipstick as needed.


TO MAKE A BALLOON GARLAND


Cut one long piece of string or yarn. Tie a short string (2-3 inches) around the knot of each balloon. Tie your short strings to the long one and slide them close together so you can't see gaps between your balloons. Hang as desired!



Folded Paper Hearts

MATERIALS



  • paper in desired color - I used this cardstock

  • scissors

  • double sided tape


HOW TO MAKE IT



Fold your paper in half length-wise and cut off round corners to make an oval when unfolded.



Start at a short end and accordion fold the entire length of your paper. Attach a piece of tape to one end and fold your paper together, making sure the tape secured both sides.



Gently pull the other end apart to create a heart! Use them as bowl filler, or accents on your table. OR punch hold in each one and hang!



Envelope Napkins


MATERIALS




HOW TO MAKE IT



Unfold your napkin on a flat work surface and lay face down in the shape of a diamond.




Fold in the left and right points. (see above photos) Fold up the bottom so the bottom and top points line up. Your napkin will resemble a house shape. (see below photo)



Fold the top point under to make an envelope shape.



Optional, tuck a valentine inside your "envelope" before folding the top point down and "sealing" with a sticker. Lay at each place setting for a pre-dinner surprise for your guests or family!





decorate your space!

I absolutely love how this table turned out! Everything is so vibrant and cheery. These neon colors make me so happy, but feel free to use any color palette you like! I picked up some Valentine themed treats from Target including the X's and O's pretzels and heart shaped veggie snacks.
