Cute Centerpiece

Just wanted to show you my fun centerpiece I made.  It's kind of a mix between Valentine's Day and winter decor.  And kinda fun.  You can find my inspiration at Little Lucy Lu, thanks Bec!!  {You are always my inspiration!!}

{I also had fun making a Valentine Ladder if you'd like to see it here}

Awhile back I went to the antique store and came across a case of these darling vintage coca cola bottles.  I bought the whole case and just LOVE those little buggers!!  I really like how they look in the centerpiece.

It's really simple.  I just used some of those pretty red party straws, stuck in some holly, and tied around the bottles with turquoise and red baker's twine.  (Which I absolutely LOVE and use for everything by the way!)

Hope your Valentine's Day is filled with LOVE, KINDNESS, and lots of FUN.

Super cute idea to add the straws! I've been saving Frapuccino bottles to try something similar.

And these are adorable ... love the greenish/turquoise-ish tinge of the bottles with the red. (And gee, hardly can believe I'm seeing that color combo on YOUR blog! haha!:)~
Happy Valentine's Day, my best bloggy friend!
