A list of my five favorite Valentine’s Day decor ideas…easy, budget-friendly
ways to decorate your home and celebrate with your family & friends.
Today I am so honored to be joining Jennifer of Dimples & Tangles, Kris of Driven by Decor, Lisa of Shine Your Light, and Pam of Simple Details as a guest host for their “My Five Favorites” series. I’ve followed this series for a while and look forward to each monthly post. When they asked me to join them for My Five Favorite Ways to Decorate for Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t say “yes” fast enough! If you’re visiting here for the first time, welcome. My decorating philosophy is a simple one…we all should decorate with things we love. The five things I’ve listed below as my favorites are truly just that…I love each idea and use them not only for Valentine’s Day, but throughout the whole year.
Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas
I love wreaths. I’ve made wreaths for my front door for so many years I’ve lost count. I welcome each new season and my guests with a fresh wreath or basket hung on my door. Sometimes I repurpose things I already have and sometimes I spring for something new. I’ve had this heart wreath base for several years and it’s been transformed a few times. Click the link above for more details on the three latest versions.
Pillows are, in my opinion, the secret weapon to adding seasonal touches to your decor. By simply adding pillows in the colors of the season you can breathe a breath of fresh air into your living spaces. Don’t feel like you need to replace every pillow in the room. Just switch out one or two…it won’t take any time at all and will make such a difference.
Tip: Invest in a set of red pillow covers that fit inserts you already have. They can be used for Valentine’s Day, all the summer patriotic holidays and Christmas!
Printable art is a budget-friendly (and sometimes free) way to change out your wall art for the seasons. I have a set of three black frames in my entry and I rotate the artwork all the time. I have a couple of different sets of mats too which makes it fun and fresh. If you don’t have any wall space, layer a frame on a bookshelf or use a frame with an easel.
While not technically decor, these Chocolate Cinnamon Heart Cookies, packaged in a cellophane bag, make a festive addition to any tablescape or buffet. I’ve also included the printable bag topper…just visit the cookie post to get your free download.
By the time Valentine’s Day rolls around, I’m already looking forward to spring…and nothing adds that touch of spring to your home more than fresh tulips. They usually appear in grocery stores and florist shops a few weeks before Valentine’s Day. My favorites are red and pink…but lavender or white will work too. I’ve treated myself twice already this year…and am sure I’ll be splurging again!
This basket is no longer available but here is almost the same thing…just a bit smaller: Water Hyacinth Basket Tray from Pottery Barn. (affiliate link)
