Decorating for Valentine’s Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day! It’s the bright spot in the middle of winter and has always been one of my favorite holidays. Today I’m taking part in a Valentine’s Showcase with several other bloggers (see the schedule at the end of this post).

As a kid, I loved taking a plain old shoe box to school and decorating it to hold all the Valentine’s cards we’d get at our class party.  And now as an adult, decorating for Valentine’s Day means flowers … lots of flowers!

Roses and mums floral arrangementDuring the winter, I bring a lot of flowers home from the store.

To save money, I arrange the flowers myself.

Decorating for Valentine's Day in the dining roomI’ve always been a bit of a pink girl, even though I’m a tomboy at heart.

Soft Pink, Pure White, and Duck Egg Blue!

Decorating for Valentine's Day with pink and whiteI made a paper fan garland to drape across the top of my corner hutch.

I love how the Duck Egg Blue of the cabinet shows them off.

The pink carnations add feminine inspiration at Valentine’s Day.


Decorating for Valentine's Day with pink and whiteDo you like the soft, girly side of Valentine’s Day? It’s such a sweet and romantic holiday.

And even if you don’t have a romantic interest, you can still share love with family and children.
