Last week I shared my tiered tray decorated for Valentine's Day, today I want to show some of the other Valentine decor in my house. I love Valentine's Day. As soon as the Christmas decorations come down and the house is straightened up and put back to normal I bring the Valentine decor out. I don't consider Valentine's Day a "commercialized holiday to get people to spend more money", rather, it's just a special day to show the loved ones in your life how much you mean to them. Most of my Valentine decor is very old, and used year after year. And often hubby and I don't even go anywhere for Valentine's Day. It varies, but some years we will stay home and have a romantic dinner using our best china and other years it's dinner out and a movie. Hubby usually buys me flowers, and I always make him a handmade card. I show all my children and grandchildren (and some friends) extra love by hand making them all Valentine's Cards, and sending little treats in the mail. I think Valentine's Day has gotten a bad rap because men probably felt they had to spend a lot of money and women were expecting some grand romantic gesture. Just keep it simple, keep it loving, and you may grow to love this holiday as much as I do!
Now on to the tour! My dining room, the central room in the house, is the one most decorated for Valentine's Day. I have my tiered tray right in the center of the table, and a Valentine Vignette displayed on the piano.
On the piano Valentine Vignette I have a vase filled with crystallized branches and red berries, an old velvet heart box that used to be filled with candy, a "Love You More" sign from the Dollar General, and lots of pictures of my favorite Valentines of all...my grand babies!
On the other end of my piano is a picture frame I change out seasonally. These pictures were from a recent Valentine shoot (post coming next month!). I love this frame. I love that there is no glass, you just clip the photos in place. I can change the photos out so easily this way! I bought this frame from Walmart almost a year ago, and I did still see this frame last time I was shopping at my local store.
