Friday Finds :: Simple Valentine Crafts

The other day I was in the drug store and was quickly reminded by the sea of red and pink candy that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Doing my best to avoid sweets, I typically turn to simple Valentine crafts for the holiday like this XOXO banner I created a couple years ago.

To get you in the mood for cupid’s holiday, I’ve rounded-up a few inspiring diy, budget-friendly and simple Valentine’s Day crafts – perfect for decorating your home or give to loved ones as gifts!

Holiday Front Door & Target Gift Card Giveaway

holiday front door decor // simplified bee #TargetStyle

Last week I prepped our dinner table for the holidays, but this week I’m focusing on decorating the outside of our home. The first step is to create a festive holiday front door. Dressing up the your entry for the season is a great way to greet guests dropping by for celebrations, Christmas parties and holiday visits. With help from Target, I created a traditional Christmas look for our front door. I started by flanking the black front door with red poinsettias, pinecone & berry trees and birch lantern candle holders. Every door needs a holiday decor and I selected a classic boxwood wreath. I added a traditional black and white striped ribbon and sprigs of live red berries to complete the look. As a finishing touch I selected a fresh diamond door mat. Loving the result!

Pretty Pink Roses :: The Bouqs Company

Flowers bring a fresh, natural beauty to any space. Through color, size and texture floral arrangements are a terrific decor accessory to help set a room’s mood. So when Bouqs, the premium online floral delivery service asked if I’d like to review a bouquet for myself, it was a no-brainer. I selected a dozen long stem pink roses called Sweetness. Sweet indeed! Like most of Bouqs flowers, they were grown at the foot of a mineral rich volcano in South America and arrive a few days later at my front door.

Here are the pretty pink roses in my daughter’s new flamingo room. So simple, elegant and sweet. And boy are these roses huge and long-lasting. Here’s an instagram of them a few days later. Amazing.

Another difference that makes Bouqs special? They cut flowers to order and avoid a lot of waste. In addition, Bouqs only sources from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers. Love this!

premium pink roses from thebouqs.comSending beautiful flowers is a great way to let your loved ones know you are thinking of them and with Bouqs‘ hassle-free concierge service you’ll never forget a birthday, anniversary or special date again. Brilliant!

*disclosure: Bouqs is an affiliate of Simplified Bee, however all opinions are my own (as always)
