How to Use Vintage Valentine’s Day Decor

There are so many ways to use vintage items to decorate for Valentine’s Day. Here are a few ways to use your favorite vintage pieces this February, whether you’re throwing a party or having a quiet evening at home:

  • Vintage Valentine’s Cards Garland: Collect vintage-style Valentine’s Day cards and string them together to create a charming garland to hang across a fireplace, doorway, or along a wall.
  • Lace Doilies and Table Runners: Use doilies as placemats or as decorative accents on tables. Lay a vintage lace table runner for a romantic and timeless touch.
  • Mismatched Vintage Dishes: Set a romantic table with mismatched vintage plates, cups, and saucers. Look for patterns with floral designs or delicate pastel colors, which are especially nice for Valentine’s Day!
  • Antique Candle Holders: Use antique candle holders in brass or silver as a centerpiece on your dining table, coffee table, or even mantle.
  • Vintage Floral Arrangements: Use vintage containers like old milk glass bottles or antique tins to display your favorite flowers.
  • Chalkboard Signs with Love Quotes: Find an antique-style chalkboard or create one using a vintage frame and chalkboard paint. Then, use them to share quotes or messages around the house.
  • Vintage Teacups and Saucers: Serve tea or coffee in vintage teacups and saucers, or use them to hold candy, tea lights, or even small flower arrangements.
