5 Favorites :: Pinterest

Hello Monday! The start of a new week can be both refreshing and overwhelming. This week I’m planning a couple bathroom renovations, our backyard in being landscaped and the kiddos are busy with summer activities.  Although it will be a busy week, I’m thankful for a break from a heat wave we’ve been experiencing.

To start the week off on an inspiring note, I’m sharing a few of my favorite pins on Pinterest as of late. As you’ll see, recently I’ve been pulled to lots of soothing neutrals and pale shades of pink.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether your are in a relationship or not, it’s a great day to spoil those that you love. It’s also okay to give your hubby, boyfriend or love a little nudge or suggestion on Valentine gift ideas for you. I’m loving this sweet heart-shaped box of succulents (above) and here are a few more items that are currently on my list:

Decorating for Valentine’s Day

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? It’s okay, I do too. However, decorating for Valentine’s Day unlike Christmas or even Halloween, is more subtle. I keep it simple and don’t overdo it.

Today I’ve teamed up with the super creative folks at Minted to create a festive, yet fresh tablescape for cupid’s favorite holiday. As you’ll see – it’s not all about hearts & arrows – I’ve mixed in some none traditional prints such as the partridge table runner and modern stitch napkins to the mix – these patterns could be used year around which is a win-win. I also included red roses for a traditional touch and a double fudge chocolate cake for something sweet – a Valentine must! The bay window was the perfect place for garland & bunting to deliver a special “love you” message to family and friends.

Now… can we just talk about how darn cute the Minted classroom Valentines for kids are?

My kids selected “You’re a llama fun!” and “I like the way you roll” Valentines for their friends. So cute and I love that they are personalized. Here are a few more Valentine favorites for the kiddos from Minted:
