If you've been reading my blog for any time now, you know that I love to decorate and especially decorate for seasons.
After I take my Christmas decorations down around New Year's I like to go ahead and put up some Valentine's Day decor. I love Valentine's Day decorations...the bright reds and pinks...the sparkles and flair...fun and right up my alley!
On our front door, I add flashy pink mesh, red ribbon and a Valentine's Day sign for an easy welcoming wreath!
On the inside of our front door, I have a rag ribbon wreath that my friend Amy made for me. I love the colors she used for this!
I changed out the printables in the frames on our entry table, added more of the pink mesh and red ribbon. I picked up this cute, little candle holder at Hobby Lobby, but have not found the right size candle for it yet.
(P.S. I may or may not say "Hello, Love" in a British accent every time I pass by this frame. #noshamehere)
I changed out our kitchen chalkboard to some sweet lyrics from a fun song. My nephews LOVE this song. After I finished it one night a couple weeks ago, we Face Timed them to show them and they both immediately starting singing. So cute!
I added a painting I made last year to my floating shelves and a couple of small pieces that I've had since I was little.
In my antique cabinet, I put a couple of old Valentines tins and a salt and pepper shaker.
This didn't photograph well during the day, but I found this cute metal garland at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago for $3.99 I think? I left up the curtains from Christmas and the garland fit perfectly!
I snapped another pic at night and it showed up a little better.
Stephen's mom made me a tablerunner from burlap used at our Rehearsal Dinner. So special!! I added a smaller table runner on top of the burlap and placed a red heart dish and candle to the centerpiece. I couldn't find anything that I just loved to go in the milkglass vase. Maybe next year.
Another painting I made last year...I'm really loving gold for Valentine's!
For our coffee table, I used another table runner, red candle, glass bowl and added a candle and heart garland to a small cake stand.
And now my favorite decorating space...our mantel!!
I bought three different fabrics from Hobby Lobby, cut them into equal length strips and tied them to a strand of twine to make this garland. I love how this turned out!! This would be SO EASY to do for any holiday or celebration.
I poured a few bags of conversation hearts candy into a glass lantern for a fun, festive look. It took four bags to fill it this far, I thought for sure it would fill the whole thing. Lesson learned for next year!
I bought the glass jar with red sparkly heart and the red chalkboard from Target's dollar aisle this year. I could've gone crazy there this year, but I was quite proud of myself for holding back! I used some heart picks that I already had for my mercury glass vase.
This cracked me up and had to share. I went to take a picture of one of our end tables and had to shake my head at where Stephen had left his cup. Really? The coaster is RIGHT THERE. #reallife
Back to the table, and a cute little Be Mine heart plate!
On the other end table, another fun little plate. I guess technically it's not a Valentine's Day plate, but it just matches for the season, so I go with it!
That's it..,.our little Valentine's ready home!! Little festive touches that add FUN to our home! Any reason to celebrate will do!!
