Valentine's Day is almost here. I love this holiday! I wanted to do something a bit different this year for decoration.
I drew my inspiration from this beautiful heart tower made by Carolyn Quartermaine. This photo is from her book, Carolyn Quartermaine Revealed. I wish this amazing designer would write another book. I adore her style and if I could redo my entire home her design aesthetic would rule.
I searched everywhere for a base like hers, but couldn't find one. It was so frustrating. Her base has those long beautiful scrolling legs (drool). In the end I settled for a candlestick holder and paper plate to make up my base.
Not as elegant as Ms. Quartermaine's, but I think it's fun. Wouldn't this be perfect for a Valentine's Day wedding? I used poster board, pink construction paper and liquid gold leaf.
Wishing you all a creative and romantic Valentine's Day.
