Valentine's Day Decor

Yes, already!  I had originally planned on waiting until the first of February but I decided to just put it up.  Now, I'm not one of those people who needs a special day to express my love for my family, but I do love making things festive.  So, without further ado...


The mantle.  I found this heart garland at Michael's and made some wired ribbon bows to attach to the ends to dress it up a little.  The hurricane vases filled with coffee beans are leftover from Christmas.  I wrapped some of the wired ribbon around them to make them a little more festive.  I changed out the floral arrangement in the watering can with some (fake) pink carnations.  I found the adorable "Keep Calm and Love On" sign here.  I just printed it out and stuck it in a frame.


After I took the picture above, I decided to add some heart confetti to the mantle.  Just to jazz it up a little! ;)


The centerpiece on my dining room table.  I flanked this pretty teapot my neighbor gave me a while back with some mini tulip arrangments.  I placed everything on this hand-tatted, heirloom lace runner.  (Just kidding, I got it at Walmart years ago).  I can reuse the flower arrangments for Easter.


I added some pink tulle and some little felt hearts embellished with heart stickers to the chandelier above the table.


I made some tissue paper pom poms to hang above the hutch.  I messed up the big white one, so I just place it in a vase.  It's kinda weird, so I'll probably change it up.



More of the same wired ribbon from the mantle tied around some candleholders.  I just love this ribbon!



One of the wreaths I made.  I put this one on the front door. 


The other wreath I made.  My walls are a muted, brick red color so it didn't really photograph well.  It looks nice in person, though.

That's about it.  I do have a Valentine's Day garden flag, but I didn't get a picture.  Thanks for stopping by!

They look fantastic. You are a great mom. I stopped by Michaels too and was walking around their valentines day stuff and bought just a little too. What does to picture on the mantel say?
