The Month of Love

Hey there, happy Friday!  I hope you’ve had a great week.  🙂

The Month of Love {Details Blog}

Welcome to the Month of Love.  😉  I love February.  It’s short and sweet!  Over the past several years, I have posted some really simple vignettes and projects for Valentine’s Day so I thought I would kick off the month by compiling some of the photos here.  Some photos are from my in-laws’ house over the years, too (remember, we lived with them for a couple of years while we saved up for our house!).  I have a few projects in the works for V-Day so I will be sharing those soon!

Target always has little seasonal throw pillows that are fun this time of the year.  On another note — it’s neat to look back and see how different our house looked just a couple of years ago!

This was a kitchen table vignette that I created using just a bunch of random things that I shopped from our house right after we moved in.  The blocks were my favorite!

And here’s a vignette that my mom-in-law created using blocks.  Hers was the inspiration behind mine.  😉  I love those little crystal jewels.  A lot of times you can find those in the wedding section at craft stores.

For a little gift, I made these yummy (and versatile!) cookies for some family and packaged them up in a festive way.  I love to use doilies this time of the year.

This is my third Valentine’s Day pulling this wreath out of storage.  I made this our first Valentine’s Day in our house and it’s still goin’ strong!  It’s just a simple grapevine wreath with the flowers tucked into it and the banner wired in.  It took all of ten minutes.  🙂  I store my wreaths in garbage bags in our garage and so far I haven’t had to re-make a single one, they’ve held up so well!

I find myself reaching for garlands over and over again for each season.  They’re such a simple way to add a festive touch.

Printables are a fun way to decorate for the season, too!  There are so many beautiful free ones.  I have a whole Pinterest board with my favorites that I have found and used over the years.

This was another pretty vignette my mom-in-law created in their dining room.  A silver tray, moss, dried roses, and some candle holders.  Very simple and elegant!

Of course festive cocktail napkins go a long way.  🙂  I like easy this time of year.  We really only go all out for Halloween and Christmas.  The rest of the year I like to acknowledge a season or holiday in our home but not go overboard.  Less to clean up — and less to dust around!

Have a great weekend, everyone!  I’ll see you back here next week!
