Things I love about spring decorating: Birds, flowers, and nests.
In February, I love to sprinkle in cherubs, hearts, and lots of red candles.
My mantel was a bit of a challenge this year.
Doesn't it seem like I should remember how I decorated it last year?
I think decorating for Valentine's Day is a little tricky.
It's really easy to make everything look too cutesy and a little cheap.
I can decorate with heart window clings in my classroom, so at home I
want to have a more classy look.
I bought this "fleurs" box last spring at Marshalls. The paint was a light green.
I planted succulents in it and had it outside for the summer.
The paint turned a perfect blue.
Another great space to decorate is above our built in bookcase.
It sits below a 5 ft. window so it is a perfect spot for plants.
I used a couple of books with red covers as lifts and to add a splash of red.
I like to use books in my decorating.
I bought this mossy looking cherub last year at Marshalls.
I got the picture at Target. I think it is really "fun".
I have one week until Valentine's Day and then the Easter decorating begins!
