Happy Valentines Day!!!
When I photographed this three weeks ago, I thought that I would post it ages ago. However, life tends to happens and made it impossible to post before now. If you look at my Instagram, you will see what has kept me so busy.
I saw a similar LOVE sign on Pinterest, and thought it would be fun on the tablescape. With work, we have been focusing on #spreadthelocallove campaign. Its a movement we have created to encourage people to support local stores, restaurants, and bloggers by purchasing from them. My work, Gatehouse No. 1, love our locals. We support them weekly by doing treat runs, lunch runs, and of course girls nights out at our favorite hot spots! To see more on it check it out @gatehouseno1 on instagram. Its been fun movement to create with Claire, Stephanie, and I. But it also consumed a large part of our free time and our lives.
I considered using the LOVE sign for the event, but then I decided to go more formal. It's been fun to have up this year, and was really easy to make. Directions are at the bottom of the post. It turned out perfect for my Valentines tablescape, however I photographed this late at night so the exposure isn't the best.
For the LOVE sign, I did the same thing. However, because I couldn't find LOVE cut out in wood. I purchased 4 boards of white foam core. Free handed each letter on the white foam core. Then I cut each letter out with exacto knife. Once each were cut out, I repeated the same process, spray painting each letter. then spray glue, glitter. It was a little sticky when I was done. So i used a aerosol hairspray to seal it when I was finished.
Happy Valentines Day!
