I am finally able to do a post after my sweet husband did some work to our computer. I've been about to bust!
I just had to share some simple Valentine's decorations I've made and bought from Dollar Tree.
We'll start with the paper hearts on the back of the chairs. Last year I made these from printing out some of my favorite floral designs on our printer and then adding them to lightweight card stock with glitter and ribbon.
Talk about simple but messy....I had glitter everywhere for days! Each one is special just like our girls, so I added them to their chairs.
Here are some more that I made into garland. Last year I hung them on the window hanging in between the kitchen and living room. I just added this mantel over the summer, so I am having a ball with decorating it for each holiday...especially Valentine's Day!
I found some paper heart doilies at Dollar Tree the other night and bought the pink and white ones. I bought more than I could use, so Mama gets some!
Aren't they just so pretty with the lace mason jars and candlelight?
I added some to my Dollar Tree dishes too.
They had these little glitter pink hearts on a red stick. They're made of foam...I ripped them off and added them to the centerpiece. Matched perfectly to the crystal garland.
I found this heart last year at Home Goods and thought it would take the place of the paper heart garland this year....Perfect!
I gathered up all of my china and went to town grouping them all together in Mammaw's china cabinet. I have had so much fun decorating for Valentine's day...can you believe that I never used to decorate for it?
I recently bought some Royal Albert china at Home Goods and put the little saucers over my stove. They came with these little cups. I think they look cute with the rest of the dishes.
I'd love to find some more!
My Birthday present last year from Mama was the pink cake plate and tray. She knows me so well doesn't she?! All of the other china has been bought from thrift stores and some came from my Aunt Linda who passed away almost two years ago. She had a fetish with dishes just like me!
Special memories are everywhere in my home filled with lots of
This little print is a free printable I found with the perfect shade of pink. The desk and chair were Mammaw's and have been passed down from her to my Mama then to me. I padded the little chair and covered with one of my favorite quilts. The rooster lamp came from Cracker Barrel a long, long time ago. Of course I painted it white and added the pink shade.
I recently went on a sewing string with making slipcovers for some of my lampshades...so I'll post about those later. I'm leaving a snippet of what to look forward to.
Be sure to come back for the Valentine's in the living room next week....Thanks for stopping in!.
