A Valentine's Day Decor Tip

Need an easy, cheap romantic idea for Valentine's Day? Look no further. I discovered this simple tip years ago and use it as a Valentine's Day centerpiece.

Simply take a pretty bowl (clear is best) and add one bag of cranberries. Fill the bowl with water and allow the cranberries to float to the top. Add white tealight candles, light them, and voila!

Get creative. You could divide the bag of cranberries and place them in tall, clear vases using just one tealight in each--or separate the cranberries into several small vases, add the candles, and place them around your bathtub! Romantic, right?

Love is in the air. Yes, I'm a hopeless romantic.


  1. I like the idea of surrounding the bathtub with small vases. Add some scented bath salts and you have a wonderful, spa-like retreat. First I'd have to move the hundred or so kids' toys that have overtaken the ledge around the tub, though. And convince the kids that this time Mommy gets to be by herself for a few minutes.

  2. Pretty... and low. Perfect for gazing across the table into his eyes. ::: sigh :::

    The bath tub idea sounds like a nice bit of foreplay to a very romantic evening.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. That's really cute, Beth. You should be putting this stuff on Pinterest. Great way to journal about your favorite things online.

  4. Thanks, Shirley. It's prettier in person. If only I had the time to join Pinterest, Goodreads, LinkedIn, etc.

    It's overwhelming to me. Thanks for stopping by!
