My Valentine's Day Tree

Last year I picked up an after Christmas
pre-lit tree for only $10.  I have used it
for a Valentine's Day tree and an Easter tree.

This year's tree has a few new touches and 
sit on a pedestal table in the kitchen.

The base of the tree is filled with chocolate
Valentine's boxes that I have saved over the

I added three pairs of feathered wings this year.
Since it was such an inexpensive tree, it has
a lot more hollow space and the wings really
helped to fill in the bare spots.

Pink and red are so pretty together for
Valentine's Day.  These little flower hearts
are some of my favorite decorations on
the tree.

These filled hearts are new this year,

as are these sparkling gold hearts.

This gift tag from last year is a fun
Valentine addition.

I have no memory of when I received this
satin lip shaped chocolate box, but I
love it and it nestles in the tree perfectly.

This jeweled box also holds a special spot
in my "heart".

I draped the tree with pink and red ribbons,
and white boas.  The boas mix so well with
all of my decor.

Another heart box in leather look.

Of course, my favorite look is at night
with the lights sparkling.

Pink, purple, red, and gold, hearts,
flowers, boas and lights - what could
be prettier for this fun holiday.

So glad you stopped by to see what is
happening over here for Valentine's Day.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Your tree is beautiful. I love it, especially the angel wings.

  2. This is over the top AWESOME! So much fun. I won't have a Valentine's tree this year, but I do have a few Valentine's Day touches (as well as Mardi Gras) in our home.

    I love the chocolate boxes under the tree...that's my favorite!


  3. I always do a Valentine tree Jackie, but I don't have any big red satin lips! Those really crack me up!! I love your eclectic collection of ornaments, fabulous fun!

  4. Jackiem your Valentine tree is darling. Love the red lips! Adding the angel wings is lovely. Love your creative spirit.

  5. Jackie, you are so creative, and I love the idea of having a Valentine’s tree. The angel topper is so sweet, and I am a collector of chocolate
    boxes so that is a great idea to put them under the tree! 💋

  6. Oh my goodness Jackie, I love this idea! Everything you do is so creative and I love how you have saved all your boxes to add under the trees. This is adorable!!!
