The next holiday that I decorate for following Christmas. One that I don’t go all out for but when I’m missing the Christmas decorations it’s fun to add a few touches.
Reds, Pinks, Whites. Gold. Soft Textures.
Usually, I keep a few red Christmas decorations out too – no Santas or anything like that but the pitcher of red berries and red candles fit in well.
Valentine’s Day Mantel
The wooden heart banner is new this year thanks to Target Dollar Spot. I also added the XOXO sign which I picked up at Michaels. The pink palette heart is from Target Dollar Spot last year and I’ve had the LOVE letters for a few years. Candles are always an easy way to add color and height to a mantel and you can use red candles that you also used for Christmas. I updated my cotton wreath with a light pink ribbon to tie it in with the rest of the Valentine’s Day decor.
I’ve made letter blocks myself for a few holidays but these I ordered from Etsy – the flower won me over.
Valentine’s Day Front Porch Decor
On the patio I hung the Burlap Valentine’s Day Wreath I crafted a few years ago and a simple heart on my lamp post.
I still LOVE this felt flower sign I crafted two years ago. Pretty simple – paint the gray stripes and then add the felt roses (which can be a bit tricky until you get it down, then they’re pretty simple).
That’s it – keeping it simple. On February first I will bring out the mini mailbox for the 14 Things I Love About You for my son.
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
Up next, St. Patrick’s Day
