Happy Valentine’s Day! I know it’s a little late to share a Valentine project with you but maybe you can just pin it for next year!
By now y’all know how I feel about Scrabble tiles! I love ’em!!! They’re one of my favorite things to find at garage sales and thrift stores. But it wasn’t until just recently that I found out they come in so many different colors. (Check out this post where I list sources. I ordered red AND pink!)

Valentine Scrabble Tiles Centerpieces
These two Valentine Scrabble tiles centerpieces were inspired by memories of my inlaws home. They always had a bowl of games on the kitchen table — cards, Uno, Skip-Bo, dominoes, etc. My father-in-law would sit and play solitaire or play a game with the kids while my mother-in-law cooked dinner. What precious memories! But they don’t have to be memories… let’s pull out some simple games and turn them into centerpieces!
This first vignette actually includes a set of ivory dominoes that belonged to Bikeman’s grandmother. She was one good domino player. “Forty-two” was actually her favorite. One round around the table and she could practically tell everyone what they had in their hand!
Now for the NEW Scrabble tiles that I just ordered. These are plastic but the colors were perfect for Valentine’s Day. I displayed them in the vintage Crown canning jars that Lauren found in Canada for 25c each!
A little later they got mixed up together so I consolidated them into one jar. I think I like them better that way. We can still play with them mixed up.
Shocking… the remote is actually in the remote tray. That doesn’t happen very often!
