“What are some tips for decorating your home for Valentine’s Day,” you ask?
January and February can be long and dreary months. The daylight hours are short, the weather is cold, and Nashville sees lots of clouds, rain, and even ice during this time of year. In the midst of this winter grind, Valentine’s Day can offer a great opportunity for a little extra brightness and excitement.
With that in mind, it’s fun to spend some time decorating your house for Valentine’s Day. Here are a few quick and easy things you can do to add some extra cheer, joy, and love to your home this February.
Add Splashes of Red Throughout Your House
Red décor is bright and fun and immediately makes you think of Valentine’s day. Consider adding a heart wreath to your front door, adding some red mugs for your family’s coffee station, or even some heart plates or pillows.
You don’t have to go overboard, but get creative and add little splashes of red to all of your living spaces to help celebrate the season.
Use Valentine’s Day Towels in Your Kitchen & Bathrooms
Another easy and affordable way to add a little Valentine’s Day spirit is using heart-themed or Valentine-themed hand towels in your bathrooms and tea towels in your kitchen. These are easy to find online or at local stores. Add a few to your linen closet and rotate them in during the month of February.
Print Valentine’s Day Signs & Cards
A great DIY Valentine’s décor option is using printable signs and cards throughout your home. There are lots of free printables available online that you can use. This is a fun way to send messages to your family and to help everyone feel a little extra love during February.
Add Some Twinkle Lights
While your Christmas decorations are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some extra twinkle lights. Heart-shaped lights or red and pink light strands can be a fun touch for the month of February. String them across your mantle or even use them as part of your dining room table centerpiece to add a little light to the winter months.
Add Some Flowers
Everyone thinks about flowers when they think of Valentine’s Day, but you don’t have to wait until February 14th to add fresh flowers to your home. Roses are a classic and can make a great centerpiece, but you can also use cherry blossoms or orchids to create Valentine-themed flowers. Fresh flowers are a great addition during cold months and are an easy way to add some brightness to your home.
Create a Gallery Wall of Hearts
Another fun décor option is to get the entire family involved in creating a gallery wall. Get some white canvases and some decorating supplies like paint, pom-poms, doilies, and glitter. Let each member of your family create their own personalized heart on a canvas and then display them in a high traffic area.
A heart gallery wall is always a fun idea for Valentine’s Day, but it will be particularly special if all of your family members help create it.
