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.

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:

5 Favorites :: Organizing Your Home

Hello 2017! With the new year brings new resolutions. One goal that may top your list is organizing your home. However, this can be easier said than done! Cleaning closets, organizing the entry, and clearing the clutter takes planning, time and motivation. In the spirit of getting organized in 2017, I’m sharing 5 simple ways to get organized.
ONE :: HOOKSsimple entry with hooks and bench

Entryways are a dumping ground for coats, shoes and bags. Make the space more orderly with wall hooks to hang items. I love this example by Coco.Kelley.

TWO :: BASKETSorganized linen closet with baskets

Linen closets can get messy quickly if they are not planned out. I recommend baskets with tags to keep the space well organized. Here Ballard Designs uses chic woven baskets house toilet paper and bedding.

THREE :: PIN BOARDScork wall // home office

I’m a huge fan of pin boards to keep important papers organized and top of mind. This cork wall is not only a great way to keep announcements, invites and important documents organized, it’s a decor statement. Love!

FOUR :: CLEAR STORAGE

Acrylic storage is a favorite of mine for obvious reasons – you can see everything inside saving so much time. I love this example of acrylic drawer front for a closet I spotted on My Domaine.

FIVE :: TRAYS

I love trays for organizing. I use them throughout the house to corral items. Above are two examples of how I use trays in my own home. The first is a ceramic tray to house bathroom essentials and the second is a simple wooden tray to keep oils, spices and other kitchen items organized beautifully.
