Romantic Valentine Flowers and Sweets

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s that time again for another fabulous

Monday Morning Blooms,

when I, along with my wonderful flower loving friends,

Lidy, Mary and Pam present some ever so pretty

floral inspiration.

You can see their beautiful floral creations

with our common theme of Valentine’s Day

at the end of this post.

So sit back, grab your favorite beverage,

enjoy and hopefully get inspired for

your upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration.

Welcome to my Romantic Valentine Flowers and Sweets.

 

 

 

My inspiration for this Valentine’s Day Table

of Flowers and Sweets was the beautiful

handprinted urn that I acquired from

Amy. It’s Lenwile China, Ardalt ~ Japan.

 

 

The flowers that I chose for this

Valentine’s Day Flower Arrangement are:

Pink Roses
Blush Stock Roses
Pink Snapdragons
Pink Tulips
and Seeded Eucalyptus for filler

 

 

I love using tulips in my arrangements

as they have that beautiful

“cascading effect”

 

 

 

I love this urn as each side

has different scenes.

 

 

I began creating this arrangement 

by placing the snapdragons in first.

Starting at the center to get height

that I wanted and formed a pyramid

type shape with the remainder of

the snapdragons.  I worked my way down

from there alternating flowers.

 

.

 

Since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday

this year, I may just plan for a

quiet evening with the family.

 

 

As I was shopping at Trader Joe’s

for flowers, I found this really cute

heart shaped cake. Perfect for two!

 

 

I took a small salad/bread plate

and placed it on a brass candlestick

to create a petite footed cake plate.

I was able to get some really great

Baldwin brass candlesticks at a friend’s

estate sale, as my candlesticks are in

the “storage abyss”.

The heart shaped jelly beans are also from Trader Joe’s.

Definitely a one-stop shop that day!

 

 

 

 

I love to have beautiful flowers

on this coffee table

as I can see it being in the

great room, or the kitchen,

the breakfast area and the dining room.

 

 

That’s the advantage for having

an open concept plan.   I am looking forward

to our new home with an open concept;

however, I will miss wall space!

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day

Flower Arrangement and sweet treats table.

I prepared/shopped and created this

in-between directing various contractors

on some final decisions.

It took a full day to give the electricians

guidance on hanging 13 hanging fixtures!

Hopefully I can give you an update soon

when I am able to take photos without

lots of large boxes and stuff on the floor!

 

 

This is the dining room chandelier.

It was the only room that the floor

wasn’t covered in boxes and packing material!

  1. What a gorgeous urn and vessel for a Valentine’s Day theme floral arrangement Shirley! I love your combination of pinks with the pretty white tipped tulips, snaps and roses. A beautiful and delicious cake too…you’ve set the stage for a sweet celebration with your hubby. I’m oohing and ahhing over your gorgeous chandy. I used to stop in to feast my eyes at all the beauty at Currey and Company’s showroom at AmericasMart in Atlanta back in my retail days. Looking forward to seeing all you fixtures and updates to your new home, you’ll be moving in before you know it. ♥

    Beautiful arrangement so beautifully done. Colors and textures of flowers are very pretty.
    Love that chandelier and I look forward to seeing that beautiful home revealed and for you to move in.
    Have a great day.

  3. My heart went pitter patter when I spied the urn, it is gorgeous with its printed scenes! The lovely choice of flowers and your perfect arrangement is absolutely stunning on the chinoiserie coffee table. The Baldwin brass candle stands and your idea of creating a footed plate stand is genius. Oh how I wish we had a Trader Joe’s nearby instead of sixty miles away. Shirley, your floral arrangements are always perfection and it is a pleasure to join your for Monday Morning Blooms. Wishing you a wonderful day ❤️

  4. That urn never looked better. What a beautiful arrangement! We have six more weeks of winter here as our groundhog saw his shadow on the one day we didn’t have clouds and rain. That’s ok we have spring weather today with a high of 71.

  5. Gorgeous flowers! Such beauty. I love snapdragons and tulips. The elegant urn is fabulous also.
    Your chinoiserie table is perfectly lovely set for Valentine dessert. That cake looks so delicious and pretty. I love how you used a candlestick for a footed cake plate.
    You are blessed to have Trader Joes nearby. There is only one in the entire state of Alabama and it is 3 1/2 hours away for me.

Trader Joe’s is always a treasure trove, and the heart cake is such a special treat! I know you must be over the moon with excitement {and decisions!} as your new house is getting it’s final touches…my daughter is in the same phase with her new house, they too are hanging fixtures and doing final touches for her Feb 28 deadline. I can’t wait to see more photos, the chandelier is so unique!! And a fireplace is fabulous in a dining room!

  9. The urn is spectacular and the arrangement is beautiful. The heart cake is so romantic and nice for you and Tom to share and I love those heart shape jelly beans. So pretty for Valentine’s day. So happy the winter months are going quickly. I love the summer and cannot wait for Spring to arrive. A couple more months!!!! You are getting so close to getting the new house all ready for move in.

    Shirley, I am so happy that you are once again taking part in Monday morning blooms! This romantic floral arrangement is stunning in that beautiful vase. I love your style, and these valentine arrangements are great for a mid winter floral break. Awesome post and I love the pictures you’ve shared of your new home.
    Thanks, Denise

  16. Shirley,

    So beautiful, you’re great with floral arrangements! I don’t know if I’m bad at or inpatient and just plop in a vessel. You know how much I love that urn.

    Your dining room chandelier is pretty. I say you can never have too many.

    Cindy

  17. Shirley, such beauty you have created. The urn is really special. It has a Victorian look to me. The flowers so perfectly chosen and arranged. Love the cake. Going to Trader Joe’s tomorrow. I always get my flowers there. The chandelier is awesome. I know your new home is going to be fabulous. Love to you.

  18. Shirley, what a beautiful arrangement, and each photo captures beautiful decor backdrops! I have an antique beaded purse with that same pastoral couple scene on it. It’s one of my favorites. I’m so happy to see you back, if only every now and then. Looking forward to more of your new home, but certainly not any more than you must be!

  19. Wow what a beautiful arrangement and I love that urn! Can’t wait to see more of your light fixtures! You have excellent taste!
