We have to say we are so happy to be waving goodbye to January and see Valentine’s Day around the corner. January is the in-between month: the post-Christmas lull and cold temps don’t leave us excited to get moving for the day! 😉
To help us feel the love that is February, we are sharing a sneak-peek at some of the elements we are looking forward to using for our upcoming photo-shoot with the girls. Give us all the hearts, pinks, tutus & reds with a bit of sparkle.
There is something about having a daughter that makes me a little more apt to decorate for all the seasons. Marrissa has always been festive and I’m excited to join her in decorating our home this Valentine’s Day.
The best part is you don’t have to break the bank to bring a little holiday vibe to your mantle, kids’ room or your dinner table. A simple trip to the dollar spot at the Target will do the trick. It can be overwhelming to see all these perfectly-styled homes. So keep it low pressure & fun! We don’t do these things for show; we do them to build memories for our children.
If the flowers are from the dollar spot or you cut hearts out of construction paper, it won’t matter. What matters is that you’re making memories.
I love that Marrissa rotates books on her shelves to match the season. (Would you believe the shelves are just Ikea spice racks painted white?! Thanks, Pinterest!) I just have all of our books in a book box– pulling out what we need when we need it. Leaving them out and coordinating with the holiday helps add a whimsical touch of the season to the room with little to no added expense.
What are some ways you incorporate the holidays into your everyday decor? Do you like to celebrate every holiday or stick to the majors? We would love to hear from you in the comments!
Check back soon for the cutest Valentine’s Day photos you’ve ever seen!
