I finally put away my Christmas tree this weekend (*) and got started on decorating for Valentine’s Day right away. I didn’t go crazy, but did get a few things up.
I really love having the mirror over the fireplace in place of the clock we had for years. I still do look to see what time it is all the time though! I used all items I already had for this, including a “Be Mine” garland from Etsy (I love this), rose vases from Pier 1 and red glass candle holders which I believe are also from Pier 1. It’s kinda plain, but sometimes plain is better. I really love it!
Ahh, the apothecary jars. I always plan to do something different with them for Valentine’s Day, yet I always come back to this. I want to use conversation hearts one year, but I’m not sure what other things to use? Any ideas? I feel like there aren’t a lot of fun decorations for Valentine’s Day, so my choices are limited. I need to branch out from Target (and Pier 1) after the holiday and hit clearance sales at Michaels, JoAnn’s, Hobby Lobby, etc.
I saw these cute little cupcakes at in a Pier 1 catalog a few years ago and seriously ran right to the store and picked them up. I looked on their website and they seem to be selling them again this year, but of course, they are all sold out near me. That’s the thing with Pier 1. They have the cutest stuff, but they get like 2 of them.
I put up a few wreaths around the house too, put out V-Day hand towels and all that too. I love having the house decorated for each of the holidays. B has school, so we won’t be going out for Valentine’s Day (**), but the little boys and I will for sure celebrate! I’ll do fun baskets and I am going to make L only pink and red food that day. I gotta get Pinteresting for ideas! He’s going to LOVE it! Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? What do you do to celebrate?
