Valentine table inspiration this year came from our

Winter Nesting Tree and a parliament of owls!

It’s filled with bird ornaments and nests, sparking snowflakes, icy branches,

snowy white bands of glittery ribbon and frosty pine cones.

    Mary, your winter nesting tree and parliament of owls brings such delight to your readers. I am amazed that after all of your years of blogging, your tables are fresh and creative. The adorable owl cupcakes with hearts in their eyes and cookies carry out your theme perfectly. The plate stack and the sparkle of the red beaded placemats are beautiful. I love your “owl” whimsical table! Your attention to detail is stunning. It is always a pleasure to join you at one of your amazing tables♥️

    Good morning Mary, as usual your post gives me such inspiration! I had received a soft pink throw as a gift and didn’t know where to use it in my house. Seeing your post, I now will use it as a table cover for my Valentine table! Woo hoo, thank you! I so enjoy reading your blog. You always put together just the right pieces to make such lovely settings!

  3. January 25, 2022 at 7:55 am

    I adore owls and this was delightful, you have me craving to many things to early in my day! Love your owl glass mugs, extra darling find!

  4. January 25, 2022 at 8:15 am

    Mary, I am completely smitten with your adorable owl theme from the cookies to the plates and glasses to the elegant twiggy flatware–swoon! Your beautiful tablescapes truly inspire! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    Mary, you mention it’s hard to come up with new ideas after all these years, yet here you are, with another brilliant interpretation of the occasion for love! ‘Owl’ be your valentine was a perfect theme for your winter nesting tree! Of course that really cool owl pedestal came from Pier 1 (sigh), And those owl plates from WM were a real clutch! What really makes my heart go pitter patter here, though, are those Crown Ducal Bristol Pink plates that carry the provenance of having been hubby’s grandmother’s. That’s extra special. But that certainly doesn’t diminish the beauty and special qualities of all the other elements, though. I love that you’re growing and using your collection of owl and other bird ornaments each year. This table is full of so many details, both for the eyes and the sweet tooth. You totally captivate my senses in looking it all over. Mary, thank you for bringing your unique style and design ability to the table among us! ♥

    What a hoot Mary! I love your owl collection, and they have certainly won my heart! Love the sweet candy and cookie centerpiece and all the adorable owl faces peeking out everywhere. The twig flatware is perfect and I can’t believe you found owl jars! The red beaded placemats are beautiful. Wonderful whimsical Valentine table!

  7. January 25, 2022 at 8:50 am

    What a fun table – you certainly have some cute owl table decor! The cookies are so adorable, the twig flatware is perfect for this theme and your drinking glasses were a big surprise to me! You certainly have a flair for themed tables! Have a Happy Valentines Day!

    All these colors make me smile esp. during these frigid days. Your husband’s family transferware is so beautiful. I made your owl cookies last holiday season and they were very good. These cookies have personality!!! I agree with other comments. Your table settings are top-notch, very, very wonderful for those of us viewing from far away.

  12. January 25, 2022 at 10:19 am

    Mary, your ‘re attention to detail when creating a table is impressive. The owl collection was put to good use for this themed table. Loved all the layers of color and addition of the pretty cookies, white frosted pinecones and branches!
    Happy Valentine’s Day,

    Mary, Your owl table is gorgeous! I love all the extra touches and attention to detail. You have such a lovely collection of owls and winter elements. Love the white pine cones! The cookies are adorable. You may find it challenging to come up with new ideas after 12 years but you never disappoint! Your tables are always fresh and inspirational!

    Thank you Mary for your never ending inspiration and yet another lovely table. Years ago, I collected owls and had them all over the house and on the walls. Now, I have an owl cookie jar, salt and pepper shakers and a few owl plates which I believe are all that is left from my collection….so I really enjoyed looking at your collection. It brought back many memories and even though I am dating myself…it made me remember my macrame’ owl plant hanger and philodendron that I struggled to grow back in the Midwest! What is really amusing, is here in Florida…philodendron grow like/and are weeds in my Secret Garden! It reminds me of that old saying…one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. LOL
    Have a great Valentine’s Day!

    My my, Mary! You have brought out all the owls delightfully. I love the sparkly owls placed in a nest surrounded by chocolate kisses. Your ornament owl collection is wonderful. And the owl cookies are darling. How nice to round up all your Valentine posts. You always manage to create a new post regardless of how many you have done.
    I will pin so many of your photos. Your creativity is endless.

    You never cease to AMAZE!!! Your table-scapes are beyond Fabulous!!!

  19. January 25, 2022 at 2:29 pm

    Mary, such a clever title for your fun and fabulous tablescape! I’ve always loved those owl ornaments of yours and would love to have them nest in my peacock and bird theme Christmas tree. My dapper owl would feel right at home with friends at your place. I struggle to style a new table after only 4 years blogging — don’t know how you do it? “Owl’ bet is having loads of talent and creativity! In addition to the ornaments, you have some adorable owl tableware like those awesome glasses and plates. And oh so adorable and clever are those cupcakes!

    Your browser suggestion is a good one, but I already use Chrome. They’ve had me check, try, record/share a million things but are still stumped.

    I like your punny title for this post! I love what you did with the plates and the cupcakes. Very creative! I also love the owl jars utilized as glasses. You are so creative and clever! Cute tablescape as always, Mary!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Mary, your whimsical owl themed Valentine’s table is absolutely precious! Everything looks just beautiful! Those sweet treats look pretty and delicious as well. I have a couple of owls that I hear in the early morning hours, and my little poodle, Ruby, always starts barking back. It is so funny! I adore your winter nesting tree. It is gorgeous! Maybe, I’ll try something similar. It would definitely brighten these cold winter days. Enjoy your week!

  23. January 25, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Mary, I always admire your winter nesting tree, and owls are favorites here for this Chi O girl. You have gathered a fantastic flock. The cake stand is clever, and oh, how many times have I regretted that I didn’t buy the twig flatware! Ha! Like I need another set of flatware! Your cookies are an adorable idea and I’ve already shared it with my sister and friends. Thanks for all the inspiration. Always fun to hop with you, talented friend. Thanks for the inspiration and Happy Valentines!

  24. January 25, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    Fun and whimsy around every spot on your table! Your owl cupcakes are darling. I enjoyed it all. Thank you for always inspiring us!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  25. January 25, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    This is just an adorable take on a Valentine tablescape! So so cute!! The owl plates, the owl cake stand the cookie and everything is just so cute!

  26. January 26, 2022 at 9:40 am

    Hi Mary, really enjoyed the nesting tree with a special emphasis on my favorite bird. The Owl cupcakes are delightful and definitely something I am going to try. Your table is filled with eye-catching Valentine Day goodies. Makes you want to come in and stay awhile just to see what else is there. Quite adorable. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    What a delightfully set table! It’s wintry yet cozy, with all the sparkle you could want. All the owls are adorable and the cookies are super cute. I’ve always thought it amusing that a group of owls was a ‘parliament’, as if they are indeed wise, lol!

  28. Karenann S.
    January 26, 2022 at 1:45 pm

    I love your owl ornaments. They are so beautiful. I love the idea of decorating with the owls for the winter. Very sweet idea!

  29. January 26, 2022 at 3:51 pm

    Mary, I always enjoy your creativity throughout the year and I am amazed (and more cheerful) seeing your nesting tree after the Christmas holiday. When rooms become empty and dark after taking down all of the Christmas lights, your room is filled with warm and cozy lights from your tree. Your birds and owls are elegant and charming, especially your lovely collection of owls. They remind me to appreciate the beauty of nature even in the cold, dead winter. Your cookies look so adorable and yummy Your cookies have me craving them. Your floral pieces are beautiful and also adds to my anticipation of Spring. Certainly a tablescape of hope for better and warmer days to come. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  30. January 26, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Soooo creative!!! Coming up with new themes year after year is a challenge you have crushed!!! Not only do you come up with the best themes, you carry out the detail to the utmost. Your owl cookies are adorable!! Love those little heart eyes!! I love seeing what you have come up with and am thrilled to be hopping with you!! I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!! XOXO

  31. January 27, 2022 at 11:37 am

    Omgosh! This is such an incredibly creative and fabulous table! I love owls and nests myself so this totally made me smile. Your tree is great. We have some owl ornaments ourselves but this is a wonderful collection and you styled everything beautifully. So much eye candy {literally}. Have a fabulous day. XO- MaryJo

    Your talent and creativity shines through yet again! How sweet that your love for birds have extended into the owl family and this is a precious theme for Valentine’s. Love the furry throw, looks like soft downy feathers, the twig flatware add to the uniqueness of this setting. The cake stand with the owl hiding in the center of the stand is extra special! You are incredible! I need to get on the stick and start creating my own Valentine tablescape and be sure to bring out the small heart spoons that I purchased after seeing yours. The other night I let Buddy out for his last potty break and heard an owl hooting in a big tree out in our back woods. Pretty awesome, wished I could have seen him. 🦉♥️🦉♥️

  33. January 28, 2022 at 11:21 am

    What an adorable theme, Mary! I would’ve never thought of owls for Valentine’s Day…such a clever idea! I love the cozy, wintry feeling you’ve created with the furry tablecloth and the silver, frosted accents. My daughter loves owls (especially Hedwig from Harry Potter) so I’ll have to make her some of those cute cookies. Thanks for the inspiration! I see that we both scored some of those Valentine candy corn, too. I was so excited when I found mine at Homegoods, because I’d never seen them before. It’s always fun to hop with you. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  34. February 9, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    What can I say….other than this table is incredibly fun, beautiful, beyond creative and and joy in each and every image!
    “Owl” be the first one in line to say bravo! Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
