Burlap Valentine’s Day Placemats

Hello, everyone!  Happy 2015!  I hope you’re staying warm wherever you are!  We’re enduring the cold (and trying to embrace it) up here in Minnesota, but inside … we’re moving on from Christmas.  The reds and greens are slowly being replaced by more neutral items … with just a touch of pink thrown in for Valentine’s Day!  Yes … I know, I know it may be rushing it a bit, but the hints of pink get me just a teeny tiny bit excited for Spring.

It’s Katie from View From The Fridge, and I’m back this month with a fun way to set a festive (or even romantic??) table for Valentine’s Day (or really any day) with these Burlap Placemats:
