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:

Valentine’s Day Inspiration & XOXO Banner

Valentine's Day Hot Cocoa Bar

Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day falling in the chilly month of February, why not warm the hearts of your loved ones with hot chocolate? Creating a festive hot cocoa bar with marshmallow toppings and treats is easy – both kids & adults will love too! I simply used my vintage bar cart, a tray and filled it with hot cocoa essentials. The heart mugs are my fave!

And who doesn’t remember this darling hot cocoa stand?

The hugs & kisses banner was homemade. Starting with red glitter paper purchased at Michaels, I simply cut out the Xs & Os (here’s where I found the template). Then I taped each cut out letter to pink and white baker’s twine. Super simple. Super cute!

xoxo,
