Just as a romantic meal can be the Valentine's pièce de résistance, a romantic centerpiece can be the finishing touch that pulls your holiday décor together. You can make a fun but still elegant centerpiece in no time at all.

Start with a round mirror, and place a low, silver vase holding red flowers in the center. Then, sprinkle the mirror with rose petals (or any flower petal that's fairly round) -- go with something a little wild, like yellow or peach or purple. At the center of each petal, place a single, silver Hershey's Kiss, so the mirror is topped with brightly framed candy, all framing the flowers. It's a great combination of traditional and artistic.

Above all, remember that you can celebrate Valentine's Day with any Valentine you want. A meal with a bunch of beloved friends is just as festive as a table for two. So get your decorating done early and enjoy the love.
