I love to decorate for Valentines Day. It used to be a holiday I would skip when it came to decor, but I will take any excuse to add some pink into this home filled with boys every once and a while. Really though I am loving all the pink, girliness and femininity of the decor this month. And well, the boys can just deal with it one month out of the year right?! So I just thought I would share how I decorated my home this month with some links to some tutorials or shops.
Sometimes you just need pretty and simple. For my kitchen table it is pretty small so I don't like a lot of clutter. I simply used a white table runner and placed a vase in the middle. I have these little snow balls left over from Christmas that I believe I got at Tai Pan and the hearts are cut off from heart picks from the dollar store. Then I simply added a little red ribbon. So simply but so pretty,
For my faux mantel I used my favorite backdrop that I made a couple years ago, you can find the tutorial HERE. I love it because I can use it for holidays but also year round since my kitchen is red. I got the globe from a Cricut event, the pink vase is just a spray painted soda bottle, the little glass containers are from the dollar store and the target dollar spot and I just filled them with valentine candy. The candle sticks are from Ikea and I made the Rosette balls from THIS tutorial from House of Smiths. Then I spelled out Valentine with Scrabble letters and finished it off with a super simple garland. The garland is just twine with pine cones and dollar store snowflakes strung on.
My sofa table is always a fun place to decorate and I like to use larger decor items to fill up the space and give it some depth. The Love wood letters are from the Wood connection and you can find my tutorial of how I made them HERE. The little I heart U vases are from the dollar spot at Target and I filled them with dollar store heart picks. Then the rest are printables I found HERE, HERE and HERE. I used frames I already had and spray painted the pink and white ones.
I have a really fun small and tall red table next to my sofa table I simply added my adorable and Favorite owl from Michaels and a milk glass vase from the DI with some babies breath inside. And it is always fun to decorate the Chalkboard for whatever holiday or event is coming up.
This adorable Be Mine bunting was made by my mom over at Organize and Decorate Everything and she gave it to me. I love it and always find the perfect place for it no matter where we are living at the time.
I put this pillow out every year. I love the pink on my couch mostly, and the beaded letters are so much fun. I have had this pillow since I was in High school. My mom gave it to me one year for valentines day and it has seen many dorms and homes since.
You can find my straw wreath tutorial HERE. I use this for many occasions and holidays, I love how versatile these wreaths can be. The tutorial for the chalkboard banner is found HERE.
Love sign from Michaels, and white vases from ikea filled with some twigs from michaels.
I love this little pop of Valentine Love and color in the little guest bathroom in out main living area. The tutorial for the Feather wreath is HERE. For the frame, I simply wrote out All you need is...is all you need on my computer, printed it out, and then stuck on the glitter love with some sticky dots on the glass of the frame. I got the LOVE from the target dollar spot.
My antique windows are my very favorite I LOVE them. I simply added some washi tape bunting to dress them up from this month. Tutorial HERE.
Upstairs in the hall way I have these fun little shelves that are great to get a little bit of the holiday spirit up there too. I got the Heart print HERE and just put it in a spray painted pink frame I got from the dollar store. Added and Ikea frame, an antique wood molding piece, and a little glass birdie from Michaels. On the left I have a picture of me and the hubby, another love bird, and a bird cage with some heart picks inside. On the right side I put a picture up of my other two little valentines, a spray painted pink soda bottle and a fun chicken wire frame for texture.
