Decorating for Valentine’s Day

Well, it’s that time again.  I just put up my second annual Valentine’s tree!  It’s a small flocked tree that sits on the entry table as you come through my front door.


 Valentine’s Tree


My decorations include some glittery hearts, small pink and white Christmas balls, and some vintage Valentine’s cards tucked into the branches.

This year I added a few new decorations, including these precious little golden owls that my friend, Lezlie, gave me for Christmas!

I found this cool old painting at an estate sale and tucked it in the background – I love the winter scene and the pinkish hues in the sky and tree buds.

In the mirror behind, I tucked in a vintage wedding photo I found years ago – as well as one of the paint chip Valentine’s cards I made last year.

Sometimes it’s nice to devote a small space to decorating for the minor holidays.



Do you decorate (even just a little) for Valentine’s Day?

Your V-day tree is so pretty, I love this idea! I think my husband would think I’m totally crazy for pulling out one of the christmas trees but I think it would be so fun:) You totally have my creative wheels spinning this morning! So far the only think I have is a crepe paper rose wreath on my front door and plans to make a garland for my mantel..

Oh this is pretty Kristie~I love this holiday but don’t like to go bonkers decorating for it either. This is a nice idea with the little tree. I love the vintage spin on it..I’ll be getting out my simple valentine bunting I made last year and string it across my kitchen window~and add some pink flowers of course…

I have a few Valentine’s items that I get out – a candy dish and a planter that my husband had gotten me are the two items I always get out. And then I usually have some fresh flowers around as well. I love the paint swatch idea and might use that for something.

How fun is that! The only valentines decoration I have is a string of felt hearts that I bought from Pier 1, I draped it around my fireplace. . . and it looks pretty festive if I do say so myself. Not quite as festive as your tree though, love it!

So pretty!! I have not decorated much for Valentine’s day the last couple years. I think because my baby girl Meghan’s birthday is Valentine’s day and since she moved out I do not decorate as much. I miss her! Love your tree- you are so festive!

I've been "watching" this site for more than a year now.  Enjoy the ideas, and the sheer amount of energy you have, Kristie.  Now that tells you something about my age…probably older than your mother, but that's OK.  We still enjoy good ideas and pretty things. For years now (at least 25+) I've decorated for most of the holidays.  I started at a time when I could buy the items at next to nothing prices in antique stores and malls.  My house used to have decorations everywhere and people adored coming to see all of my old things.  I first… Read more »
