Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate and show how much that special someone means to you. This year, I thought it would be a great idea to have an intimate dinner at home. I hit the Salvation Army thrift store to find some items that might help add a chic and fancy touch to my home dinner. These three items caught my eye—a decanter, a set of Umbra candle holders and a pair of candles.
I’m so happy I found these items at the prices I did. The candles were $3, the candle holders were $4 and the decanter was $9. The decanter was my most rewarding purchase within this haul. When browsing online, it seems that other stores are selling similar ones for more than $70! It’s incredible that all these items were under $20 combined. Salvation Army thrift stores are always my first stop when looking for unique items that can help elevate my space, especially since I can save so much money by doing so.
I set up my dinner table using these items along with some flowers and coloured napkins to add to the romantic element I was going for. And I was able to find my key items for this day while thrifting.
Here’s the finished look. I hope you love it as much as I do. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
