Vintage Botanical Valentine Entry

I wanted to put together a romantic Valentine's Day vignette in the Entry, but I wanted to do something just a little different than my usual Valentine decor. Any time I can create a setting with a "vintage garden/botanical" theme I'm excited, because vintage-garden goods are some of my favorite items.

I usually have a Paperwhite bouquet here in the entry this time of year, but I kept out an arrangement of faux Amaryllis and star lilies and another small single Amaryllis that I used for Christmas. Then I thought I'd just go for a more botanical look with a wild vine with white winterberries draped around the antique mirror.

I love using this antique metal cupid tray for Valentine's Day,
and I thought I'd bring in my concrete garden cupid statue 
to help celebrate and keep the theme going.

A stack of red antique books tied with a satin ribbon
and a handmade crown for cupid bring in some color and sparkle.

I usually just have the round antique mirror above the console,
but I decided to layer the gothic window frame
and an ornate cream and gold antique frame for a little more romantic feel.

I like to think that Valentine's Day brings us just a bit closer to Spring. And if I can use some beautiful florals and botanicals to give us a small glimpse of what's to come then it's all the more to celebrate. We are right now in the middle of a big snow event stretching from Texas to the northeast. Cold blowing snow and ice can stay outside and I'll dream of an English conservatory and have a cup of hot tea.

I used some of these same garden elements last year for

Stay warm and safe, friends.
