Happy Day of Love! I hope you are having a fun day filled with cards, candy, and all sorts of sweetness! What could be better than celebrating a day of love? (Certainly what we seem to need in our society today.) I have a house full of red to show you….and there is actually a method to my madness here. So grab your cup of coffee, and let’s get started! 🙂
We finally went to see Hidden Figures at the theater the other week. (LOVED it by the way!) While we were there, I decided that going to the movies is probably my most favorite thing to do…but of course it has to include popcorn and a box of candy to be the full experience. 🙂
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to give everyone a movie, some popcorn, and a box of candy for their Valentine treats this year. Here are all the supplies I used.
I found the 4-films-in-one-box at Target. I put the candy and unpopped popcorn in the popcorn box and then tied them all together with some red twine and a small tag I printed on tagboard.
They are going beside each place setting for tonight’s dinner.
(Each guest’s name is on the back so I know who is getting which film. 🙂 )
One thing led to another, and since the gifts were movie related, well… you know I had to follow that theme with everything else. 🙂
Like the table centerpiece for example.
I found all the film related things at Hobby Lobby except for the clapperboard (the director’s clipboard.) It came from our local Party Store.
We’ll be serving our dinner tonight from the kitchen, so we can leave the centerpiece on the table while we eat.
I placed popcorn boxes all around for props.
(Our poor puppy just keeps sniffing the air. I know she is smelling popcorn!)
The jar in the cabinet holds chocolate drizzled popcorn, and it is soooo good!
And of course we had to have a jar of movie candy. 🙂
(I’ll have the Junior Mints, please.)
Now moving on into the kitchen, there really isn’t much new to see.
It just has its normal red accessories…which happen to work well with Valentine’s Day.
I did add a popcorn box and some Cokes to the cabinet above the kitchen desk for a touch of movie fun.
And there is a popcorn related recipe on the kitchen chalkboard.
Before we go in any of the other nearby rooms, let’s take a look at a couple of rooms in the bedroom wing. The master bedroom is still dressed in red from Christmas.
I found the lumbar pillow with the black hearts at Target
(and bought several of them!)
Do all of your stores have as many tulips out as ours seem to be carrying? I think they are going to replace roses for the most popular Valentine’s Day choice! Love those red tulips!
And gerbera daisies (in red) are also a favorite of mine.
(I actually like them even better than tulips!)
Now let’s go back to the other side of the house. The love pillow on the bench below is the back side of one of those black heart lumbar pillows like in the master bedroom. The fact that they are reversible makes me like them even more!
We haven’t been in the playroom in a while, but I put a bit of movie themed items in there. So I wanted you to see it all.
If you have been following along on Instagram, you have already seen the sneak peek of our “Romantic Movie chalkboard.” I still say You’ve Got Mail is my all time favorite romantic movie. Our daughter loves Philadelphia Story. (And I can’t believe I left Love Story off that chalkboard! Duh.)
The smaller one has movie couples.
See if you know to which movie each of them belongs. 🙂
Did you figure out all of them? From the playroom we’re going into the family room…where there is yet another black lumbar pillow with hearts on it.
The mantel has just a touch of movie accessories.
My collection of old cameras seemed to go with the look of it all.
Two more Valentine pillows (from Target) are on the sofa.
And there is a bit more popcorn and a few vintage cameras on top of the family room cabinet.
And finally, we are going to head out through the foyer. I have done this “tour” backwards – starting in the dining room – because I was afraid you wouldn’t understand the theme if I didn’t start it there.
The take-away gift for this month is a Coke and popcorn tied up with ribbon and a tag. (These are for anyone, not just our dinner guests tonight.)
And if I could hand one of these goodies to you through the computer, I would! Just to thank YOU for popping in to visit the blog today…and all the other days you spend your valuable time here. I appreciate you so much for doing that!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the house decked out in red once again, and I also hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day today!
Until next time…
