Valentine table scape with your man in mind

Valentine’s day can be a lot of pinks, purples and well glitter! I don’t know about you but my boys aren’t so into that. But I sure do love them! So I am here to show you how I merged some classic valentine decor with a masculine touch.

Of course I used some reds because I think red is pretty gender nuetral. I also love to reuse items from one season/ holiday to the next. My red ruby glass dishes and glassware were used as my base. To give a little splash of pizzazz I used some gold chargers. You can find these at the dollar store or I have even found them at the local thrift stores.

Adding in natural pieces also lends itself to a more manly look. I found this table runner on clearance at Target and the wood slice at Ross. Two vesrsitile pieces I can use year round. I accented the table with this leaf garland. When I went looking for it at Hobby Lobby the greenery was not on sale that week so I had to get creative to figure out another option. No time to try another store so I searched the store and found in the bridal section this greenery on sale 50% off! Again another item that can be used anytime.

To really give it the masculine look I added faux leather. Cut a few strips as my napkin “rings”, a few cut out hearts as confetti throughout the table and the rest I simply draped inside a square glass vase. Simple geometric shapes is a better way to go for this look. The last element is the “happy valentine’s day ” wood cut out which I found last year in the Target dollar spot. One of my favorite places to shop!

I hope this gave you a little inspiration on how to make your little men or your big man feel thought of on Valentine’s day. I don’t think you need a special day to tell someone that you love them but it certainly doesn’t hurt.

Hope you enjoyed this and it inspired you to show those boys some love. Have a happy love day! Love on all those who are in your life.

Love, Jamie @turquoisebungalow

Saturday Farmhouse Savings

Happy Saturday! I hope you will find some time this weekend to relax and maybe even do some online shopping. I am excited to start a new series all about different ways to save in all areas of decor. Starting this week with Saturday Savings with great Farmhouse steals from World Market. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out a World Market near you head on over to their website. You can find some great finds for your home. Whether your style is Farmhouse, French country, Modern or even Boho you will surely find something you will love. 

I currently do not have a World Market near me, but I got to visit it one in the Boston area last year while we were away for a hockey tournament. (Gotta love travel youth sports!) Since I can’ t shop in store I love to check them out online! This weekend is a great time to check them out for their Friends and Family sale. If you haven’t shopped with them before, the sale they have going on is a great way to give them a try without breaking the bank. Right now until Monday you can receive 30% off and free shipping on most items.  You can shop online or in store.  Don’t forget to use code FAMFRIENDS for 30% off 

So I wanted to start with a room that to me is the heart of the home. Where we gather as a family to share a meal….The Dining Area. Here I included some main pieces to give the Farmhouse feel. I am a fan of some color in a space, I feel it gives warmth and personality. I would add some pops of color that would compliment the grey cool tones in the design. Blues and shades of turquoise (of course) would work well. To play off the black metal in the light fixture you could also add black accents.
