Valentine’s Table Decor ~ The ‘Not-Cutesy’ Edition

Rare few things get me as nerded-out as laying a great table setting.

When Oli’s rustling up food for friends and family, I am in my ELEMENT rummaging in our cupboards looking for just the right napkins/cutlery/insert-random-decor item. It’s my bliss.

Go figure then that when Anthropologie reached out to ask if I’d like to style a tablescape in honour of Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t type my VERY enthusiastic response fast enough. Valentine’s table decor, you say?!

All. In.

Mirror Ideas For Your Home | The Elgin Avenue Blog

4 Ways I’ve Used Mirrors In My Home

Today I wanted to highlight a decorative basic: mirrors.

A well-placed mirror can add SO much light to a room. It’s a great way of filling up a wall. And of course, it’s very handy for applying makeup/taking a mirror selfie/double-checking your hair on the way out the door.

Oli and I have collected an array of mirrors over the years, and a few since we moved into our new flat, so I thought it would be fun to show you how we’ve put them to use!
