Tiny Romance: A Dollhouse Valentine's Day
Romantic Dollhouse Decor
I adore setting up miniature holiday scenes - tiny, lovingly decorated rooms waiting as though their inhabitants had just stepped out and will be back any minute. Dollhouses can reflect the joy and delight of Valentine's Day. Miniature gifts, flowers, chocolates, and many more tiny accessories set beautiful holiday scenes, from breakfast in bed to a romantic evening.
I like to decorate room, or several, of a dollhouse. Or sometimes I like to build a single scene in a freestanding roombox, shadow box, or diorama. There are links below to many clever ideas that I've found inspirational.
All the miniature decorations shown here are in the 1/12 (1 inch equals 1 foot) scale, standard for most collector dollhouses. Let your imagination run free as you construct tiny romantic scenes for your dolls (or fairies, or gnomes, as the case may be!)
Romantic Breakfast in Bed
The dolls begin their holiday with a delicious teeny Continental breakfast on a tray, rolled in with a pretty wicker tea cart. Use a white canopy bed with lacy covers and matching furniture, to further set the mood.

Print out Valentine cards and accessories on stiff paper, then cut them out and assemble.
The traditional Valentine's Day gift is a bouquet of red roses. The lady of the dollhouse can have a lovely fresh bouquet, wrapped in paper and tied with a ribbon. Sophisticated dolls may prefer an elegant orchid or other exotic blooms.

Dollhouse Valentine Sweets
Chocolate is the next traditional gift for Valentine's Day. So of course we have a heart-shaped box full of tiny chocolates, but that doesn't mean we'll skip the pink cookies, or the red-sprinkled cupcakes! And it's too bad we can't eat the lovely cakes, but we can admire the delicate piping, chocolate curls, and fruit slices.

Who knew that dolls had such lovely lingerie? These pieces are display-only - they won't actually fit onto a doll. So drape them daintily across the back of a vanity chair, or on top of the bedspread.
