I feel like Valentine’s Day decor has the right to be cheesy. Paper hearts this, paper that, hearts -hearts- hearts; hearts just everywhere! I think its okay, but only for the month of February. So bare with me while I remain cheesy in my decor this month.
I was inspired a few years ago from a friend (Michelle) who told me she always decorated her house for the changing seasons and holidays. It was something she did with her kids since they were young, and I can imagine the memories it created within their family.
I was determined to do the same!
That year, I went out after Valentine’s Day and purchased my first round of heavily discounted Valentine’s Day decor items to add to my new stash.
And here we are my friends, a few years later and my first real year of decorating for Valentine’s Day. Although, I kind of just threw everything together without a real “decor plan”, but it will work for this year. It’s pretty minimal, simple and kind of just “blah”, but Mr. Hubs insisted I blog about it anyways. Next year though, I shall plan better and be more fancccccy with it.

The Living Room
Keeping things simple this year I added a red and white buffalo check table runner to my damask bench. Added a little bling with a a gold sequin pillow on the couch and metallic gold antlers in a few places. Placed way too many LOVE signs around and finally threw paper hearts everywhere and decided it was done.
If you remember from my post, ” 14 Frugal Ways To Celebrate Love Month “, I showed you how the kiddos decorated their paper mailboxes and that we were going to use them to give each other notes and goodies throughout the month of February.
Viktoria keeps calling her mailbox, her “lunchbox”. She goes, ” Thank you for giving me (insert item) in my lunchbox!” haha.
The mailboxes are placed next to the piano and are sitting on my Faux antiqued candle holders that seem to make their debut around the house in many posts.
We clipped little paper hearts to pearl garland and it became our official ” Countdown to Valentine’s Day “. Then we take one heart off each day until we reach Valentine’s Day.
Now onto the dining room…
I’m not in denial guys, I know my indoor photography skills are seriously lacking and rather horrid (if I do say so myself)! I just can’t seem to get the settings right no matter what I do. Everything comes out so blurry and yellow tinged. Just being real here folks!
If you love my metallic gold chairs with black velvet seat cushions, YOU SHOULD check out them BEFORE in my post: ” From Drab To Fab- A Chair Makeover “
That’s it! Thanks for stopping by to check out our simple Valentine’s Day Decor on The Inspired Prairie!
