Simply Elegant

 It should be Valentines Day every day! I love fresh flowers and candles. It makes my home feel so warm and cozy. I was inspired by my friend Carol, who had a very similar tablescape over the holidays.

Mercury glass is very popular and a classic to decorate with.

 I bought one bouquet of flowers from the grocery store and filled this whole table.

I thought it would be nice to leave my red candles from Christmas out and mix it in with the mercury glass and plain glass votives. I think it really makes my roses pop.

I filled the tray with a bag of red metal hearts from hobby lobby. (purchased last year)

This picture was taken from the backside of the table.

Mercury glass comes in lots of different colors, shapes and sizes. I have gold and silver pieces mixed in with plain glass and other types of votives.

Oops, I forgot to light one. I counted them because of this blunder and realized I have 24 candles on the table!!!!! I think that might be a fire hazard. No wonder I missed it, thats a lot of candles.

My favorite piece of Mercury glass is this round silver piece. It is just beautiful.

Thanks for the inspiration, Carol!
