Love is in the Air….

January 23, 2014 by 11 Comments

Love is in the air, really…. Valentine’s day is less than a month away, so I decided to add a little bit of love to the mantel.  How about some candles, hearts and flowers?  I shopped the house for everything valentiny and put this simple mantel arrangement together in a short amount of time, while hubby was at physical therapy.

I love adding fresh flowers and live plants to our home this time of year.

The polka dots hearts are fun and add a touch of sparkle….I purchased them at Pier One Imports right after Christmas.

The hearts were attached to some red tulle and draped over the top of the frame of the chalkboard.

Can I just say I love mini carnations? These add a pop of color, texture and sweetness to the mantel arrangement.

I love the fresh look on the mantel along with the touch of romance in the living room.  How about you?  Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?

  1. Nicely done. You have inspired me to do something with my decor. It’s nice to have something to make your home festive after Christmas is over. We tend to go all out for Thanksgiving and Christmas but not the other holidays.

    Nice! We don’t decorate for Valentine’s day at all. Probably won’t change anything until Spring…at least the calendar Spring. Who knows when real Spring will show up! 😉

    love your mantel. I do some decorating for Valentines. This year I did a small entry table and the dining table. Nothing too much though.
    love looking at your pics.
    Oh and the recipes… keep them coming.
