donuts and carnations [a valentine's day centerpiece]

Thursday, February 10, 2011

i've seen so many dessert tables using these irresistible powdered sugar donuts and since we're in the midst of some freezing temperatures here in houston, i couldn't help but set up a valentine's day table centerpiece that you can easily create in your own home using some of your available vases, inexpensive flowers, cakestands and tucked away goodies in your pantry! 

i played around with my camera and came up with i hope a lovely tablescape that will inspire your upcoming valentine's day plans at home.

my husband is going to be annoyed with me.
he will have to finish off those donuts (and he's trying to eat healthy)!
