It’s only been two months since I last blogged – yikes! But I thought a great way to ease back in would be to share my Valentine’s Day decor. I hate to admit this, but I put these up at the beginning of January! When I lugged the bright pink bin out of the basement the look on Nick’s face was priceless. Honestly, the house was so bare after Christmas that it needed some pizazz!
Valentine’s Day has become one of my favorite holidays – not because of the romantic aspect but because of the celebration of all relationships. I celebrated Gal-entine’s Day last year and it was so much fun. I fully intend to celebrate this year again. I saw this post and am seriously considering hosting a brunch of my own. Even though I’m not a single lady, I thought this idea was so cute!
So I’m not going to lie, V’day decor can be a bit cheesy (and Nick would argue all of mine is) but I tried to incorporate small touches around the house to give the overall feel of Valentine’s Day without being overwhelming.
XOXO blocks were a Target dollar spot find
This World Market shelving unit is by far my favorite piece of furniture in my house! Seriously just now noticed that Nick switched the B on the second shelf around! That guy…
You can’t work at Hallmark and not incorporate their signature Valentine’s Day cards into your decor. I am obsessed with these LOVE marquee letters. When rationalizing this purchase at Christmas, I had the idea that I could use them for both Christmas and Valentine’s Day! Dual purpose – sold! Having hershey kisses around is dangerous! I keep finding the wrappers in our laundry…I wonder who keeps eating them! 🙂 Another adorable Hallmark card displayed in my great aunt’s vintage gold frame. So I definitely want a cuter sign for the mantle at some point but this recycled LOVE sign from my sister’s bridal shower will do for now! I picked up the cardboard at Hobby Lobby and wrote on it with a white pen. When Anthro had a super sale on these gold mugs and all of the letters were sold out except O’s, X’s, and Z’s, I had the idea to get them for Valentine’s Day. I love how my succulents look in them! I wanted to incorporate conversation hearts somewhere but if you know anything about our doodle, Georgie, you know he gets himself into everything. I had to display it on the top of the bar cart – sorry, George!
