Today, I wanted to share a few more pops of red that I recently added for Valentine's Day. Do you decorate for the "day of love?"
Here in our foyer, where I recently did a little furniture "switcheroo," sweet red hearts let you know that Valentine's Day is near.
Once I got them all placed, I then decided to add in black and white plates to the wall and really like how they look mixed with the red!
Yes, "U ROCK" (annnnd so does Michael's, as they always have the cutest seasonal decor)!
If you turn left and cruise on down the hallway, you'll pass by our dining room, where I added red candlesticks and faux rose petals to the sideboard.
These sweet ramekins (Michael's) help to dress up our simple white plates ... maybe "one" day, we'll actually enjoy a meal in here!
Next door in our kitchen, I've long been a fan of adding vignettes to the center of our island as a way to "welcome" our guests to the heart (get it? ha ha) of our home ... so, of course, a Valentine centerpiece was in order.
Faux tulips from Michaels (fancied up by adding a vase within a vase and filling it with yummy candy) ... and a cute sign from HomeGoods ... helped me get the job done!
Of course, these fun cupcakes from Pier One tucked under a glass cloche are quite tempting ... thankfully, they're ceramic.
Leftover heart garland, along with glass canisters filled with shredded ribbon and candy hearts, help to "spread the love" to our little shelves.
And, down below, inexpensive red and white cookie cutters fill another canister ... I like inexpensive decorating!
Of course, I "had" to add a little Valentine's tree ...
And, where I normally use red and white ribbon, I decided to, instead, go with this pretty black and white ribbon (that I used on our Christmas tree in the great room) to help our ornaments pop a bit ...
and to tie in with our red, black and white Valentine mantel in our great room.
Even if you don't have Valentine decor, a bowl filled with pretty red apples would be perfect on your counter!
Got any red spatulas laying around? If so, tuck them in with your utensils or wooden pieces and you'll have a little Valentine pop!
It wouldn't be Valentine's Day without candy, now would it? So, please just go ahead and "pick your poison!"
These are my personal fave, which is why I can't even have just ONE ... if I do, I won't stop!
Over in our sunroom off of the kitchen, a bouquet of faux roses dresses up a white garden seat, and hearts that I hung on branches set in a glass demijohn add a bit of Valentine "zing" to the accent chest I scored (already chalk painted) from Craigslist.
Aren't these striped straws cute? They're were even "cuter" when I spotted them for 40% off at Michael's.
And, there you have it ... our humble Valentine's Day decor.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! Happy Valentine's Day!
