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