This is definitely the easiest post I have ever written. This is a "So Easy a Caveman Could Do It" project.

Since I have less than two months until baby arrives, my mind is pretty focused on baby-projects, but I took a break for this one :). After having so many decorations up for Christmas, I decided I wanted just a little something for our table to get us through Valentine's Day. After that I think all bets are off when it comes to adding more decor around the house for a little while.

While creating our wedding registry about three years ago, I came across these glass pillars that have a place for a candle votive or sphere candle. The pillars are hollow so they can be filled or left empty. I have filled them with small green Christmas balls in the past and decided to do something for Valentine's Day.

For less than $5 I bought four bags of the classic conversation hearts in two sizes, regular and large. I poured different amounts into each pillar and clustered them in the center of our table. I do wish I had a seasonal tablecloth, but alas, I do not.

Since the candies are new, they also make for a sweet little treat as our weekend guests discovered. 
(I apologize for the partial candle left in the middle pillar. I have since popped it out.)
