Love Home

I am becoming somewhat of an over-decorator {if there even is such a thing} for Christmas. What can I say? It runs in the family.

But after putting away the Christmas decorations in early January, I always get a little sad. My house just doesn't look as warm and inviting as it does filled with sparkle and lights. In the past, I've usually just hunkered down through dismal January and February, waiting until March arrives to decorate for Easter.

This year, I've taken the time to decorate just a little bit for Valentine's Day! Pink is my favorite color of course, but I really don't have a lot of it in my house as I'm trying to make everything a little more 'gender-neutral' in preparation of living with the future husband.

Luckily, Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to bring on the pink! 

My bridal shower hostess graciously gifted me with the cutest of the event's decor, which totally inspired me in terms of V-day decorating. I crafted my dining room centerpiece using a pink serving platter and pink pearls from the shower, four crystal candlesticks from around the house in varying heights, and some pink, white and gold candlesticks from Hobby Lobby.

I updated my bar/china hutch for the holiday with a cute pink and gold vase filled with black and white paper straws, and the cutest 'CHEERS' picture frame that was a shower gifts as well. Totally appropriate at the bar!

I've become somewhat proficient in making the trendy tissue paper tassel garland I've seen on Pinterest, so I made two strands of minis from light and dark pink, and gold tissue paper. I strung them across both the TV and the china chests to add a pop of pink to the rooms.

The glittery 'XO,' ampersand, and arrow were all used as a part of the centerpieces for the shower. I love how they look in my living room! There's even a pink 'HAPPY' hanging out in my kitchen.

I actually found the glowing heart light at an after Christmas Target sale two years ago for like $7, and am just now pulling it out. It definitely gives off that warm glow like a Christmas tree! 

Happy February!
