If you have spray painted before, you know how much fun it is! Get some plastic goblets, wine glasses or vase, spray paint in one color, add lace and instant chic!!

Bake or buy mini cupcakes and alphabet cookies. Decorate the cookies in bright cheery colors and display. Oh! and the initials of your guest as place name holder would be great too :-)

Chinese lantern is a common party decoration, give it a new life as a cute vase! Pop the lantern over a small votive for support, add some beautiful flowers and you have an instant makeover.

How can one miss sweet treats! Get cookie cutters in XOs and heart shapes (amazon has many). A little bit of presentation and you have some original edible decoration. So fun!

Romance straight from Victorian times. Lovely bottles in different shapes, pretty lace, old books as props and gorgeous wild flowers. This can be recreated in a hurry and mix match at your will.

Simple and pretty! Add a spoonful of sprinklers and light a candle. All dressed up. You could experiment with colored sand, rice, sequins, beads, anything! Perfect for all occasions.

A simple cake plate with candles in valentine's day theme cupcake liner  will make an amazing centerpiece! Add flowers, chocolate dipped fruits etc. Super easy!

A little presentation goes a long way. Add washi tape to vase, votive holder to make them a set. Place it over a mirror, its elegant and will reflects the lights. Some flowers and centerpiece ready :)

Absolutely last minute! Flowers under wine glasses topped with candle. Fake flowers, pearl chains et al work too. Inserts can be easy based on any other favorite theme too.

It cannot get easier than this ;-) Pretty cute, and a nice surprise. Love!!

Tea set, flowers, ribbons and some tape! This one is easy to assemble but a little tricky to hang. Non the less if you have a few hands to help this would look awesome outdoors.
