Hearts <3

When I was younger, I would get so excited when my mom decorated our house for the holidays.  It didn’t matter to me if it was for Christmas, Halloween, Easter or Fourth of July.  Any decorations always made me happy.  This has carried on with me into my own home.  I love to add little touches around the house for every holiday.  I became that  giddy little girl again this week while putting my Valentine’s Day décor up.

I love the way it turned out.  All the items were purchased at Home Goods, besides the two Prints, which I found online. 

The kids love it.  Valentine’s Day is special at our house, since it is Colton’s birthday.  So when he sees all the decorations out, first he knows his birthday is coming soon, and two he thinks the decorations are for his birthday!  It’s nice to see him get excited over them, and now of course, I’m in full party planning mode.

What are your thoughts on decorating for Valentine’s Day?  Yes or no?

Aww how cute! I don't typically decorate for holidays outside of Christmas. Not that I wouldn't because it's so cute but I just don't think about it. lol

I love these decorations! Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays-I'm all for decorating for it! I think decorating for any holiday makes it that much more fun. I hope Colton has a wonderful birthday, mine is pretty close to his, the 11th!

This looks so good! I think this is the only holiday I haven't ever decorated for. This might have to do with my lack of desire to have a boyfriend as well. Things are changing though so I might just need to slap a heart on a thing or two. Great job!

I've always wanted to be one of those people who goes out for every holiday, sadly right now I haven't channeled my inner Martha stewart :(

Believe it or not I've never decorated for Valentines Day before. This year I vowed to decorate for every holiday though so I'm hoping to get a few things out. I ordered a thing for our door and can't wait to get it. It's too cute! I also just posted a few things on my blog that I pinned that I might be using.

I love your mantle. I want a mantle so bad!!! That heart fabric really made it look awesome :)
