DECOR :: Valentines Day Mantel

valentines decor, valentines day, mantel decor, hearts, arrows, be still


Hello my friends! I have had a super busy week - so much so, that I forgot to share this post with you. But since Valentines Day was just yesterday, I thought I would go ahead and share anyway . . . I mean we all are in our Valentines candy comas still right? lol
 

I always love sharing what I do with my living room mantel as it's the perfect backdrop every holiday for my decorating fun! Having said that, I thought it was high time for me to document and share what I did with the mantel this year. Valentines Day is one of those holidays that just gets the mantel. Meaning, that is all I am going to decorate. Mantel = done. For the major holidays: Christmas, Halloween and Easter, I usually decorate the house - as in most, if not all of it, but these smaller holidays throughout the year, they just get the mantel. ;)

For my Valentines mantel this year, I kept it pretty simple and decided on using my black and white decor already being used in the living room and adding the traditional RED this year. Last year, I did a the mantel all in pinks so this year I chose to add the red in and I love the simplicity of it as well as the classic vibe it created in the room.

Like I mentioned, most of the things I used this year, are things I already had. The Valentine banners hanging on the front, the big red heart and the black and white pitcher vase are from Target. The arrow, the wood sign that says 'be still & know' I got at Hobby Lobby. Then the rest of the other items are from HomeGoods or Michaels - you know the four basic home decor groups! ;)

I did however score a few new decor items recently as I had some gift cards left over from the holidays and decided to use them. If you follow me on Instagram, then you already saw in my stories a couple weeks ago that I picked up this fabulous vase with the macrame fringe on the outside, at Kirklands, along with the beige beads on the right side of the mantel. I absolutely LOVE them and can't wait to use them in my everyday living room decor as well. And that adorable potted plant sitting next to it? My sweet daughter gave me that for Christmas but it's from Target and I know they still have them.

I really like the simplicity of the mantel and how it came together. I know my daughter appreciates me decorating for each holiday - even if it's just a small area like this. I like to imagine when she is a mom herself, that she will tell her kids . . ."grandma used to decorate for every holiday and make it so festive!" 

I hope the little things like this, are the ones she looks back on fondly when she remembers growing up in her childhood home and knows this is just one little way I made this house of ours a home for us. ;)

Hello LOVE.

It's almost that time of year. That time where everyone celebrates all things LOVE. That LOVE day. Not only does Valentines Day celebrate the love between couples but also the love between you and your kiddos or the love you have for your besties. The day was made to celebrate LOVE. Period. It's such a fun time just to love on those special people and to let them know how much they mean to you. 

Having said that, I just had to create a new cell phone wallpaper background for this special day.

The FREE download for this cell phone background had to be festive for this time of year BUT also something I could still use throughout the year as well! I decided on the traditional PINK but kept it on trend with the black and white stripes added in the background. I also added some whimsical heart balloons to give it a touch of fun. I really love how it turned out and look forward to using it any time I want.

FREEBIE :: Christmas Cell Phone Wallpaper Background

Can you even believe Christmas is already this month? Me neither but I am super excited when this time of year rolls around. Lots of festivities, playing outdoors in the snow, spending quality time with family and friends, shopping, extra time away from work and celebrating the reason for the season are just some of the things I look forward to during this month. I am especially excited to get to visit with one of my brothers and his family since I haven't seen then in a few years.

Since this time of year is my absolute fave, I decided to create a FREE download for my cell phone background that would be festive and fun every time I used it! I decided on the traditional RED and green colors for the design but mixed it up by adding just a little hot pink as an accent on the hand lettered "falalalala". I also drew a few peppermint candies around the border and added them since they are synonymous with the holidays as well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it ended up turning out and it makes me happy every time I need to use my phone. I hope it also puts a smile on your face when you use it.

Enjoy this latest freebie and I want to take a moment to THANK YOU for being a fan of my blog and supporting what I bring to you all here. Have the best holiday season and make sure to download this to your phone as it's super easy! ;)
