It feels like the Christmas decorations were just packed away, but it’s already time for the next occasion, Valentine’s Day! One thing I’ve learned from Lolli is what a difference intentional details can make when it comes to seasonal decorations. Even just a few quick touches can help transition your family and home from season to season and make memories that last. I’m partial to decor that’s easy to take up and down like wreaths and accent pieces, and today we’re featuring some simple ways to incorporate Valentine’s Day décor into your home:
Adding a festive wreath to your front door is one of the simplest ways to invite Valentine’s Day into your home. Temporary, easy to take up and take down, and so many beautiful options to choose from or create yourself!
Seasonal tulips are a fresh way to greet your guests and always make for a stunning entrance. You can order the one below in a variety of colors on Etsy, and find even more options on Amazon. Or, if you’d like to try your hand at wreath-making, this video tutorial breaks down how to make a DIY tulip wreath in just 30 minutes, and our friend James Farmer wrote the book on Wreaths for All Seasons, which is a great reference throughout the year!

For a feminine tablescape perfect for a “Galentines” lunch, include more blush tones with votive candles, napkins, and add a special floral centerpiece. Top things off with a heart-shaped plate like the one below, and don’t forget to pop the bubbly!

If you’re like Lolli, you have collections of classic china tucked away that, with some small additions, form a warm Valentine’s Day tablescape. For a look WHERE THE GENERATIONS MEET™, pull out your porcelain plates with pinks and reds, then add a touch of modern flare with colored glassware and texture like gingham accents.

DIY Kids Crafts
Get your kids involved in your Valentine’s day decorating with a craft project they can display! Take an afternoon to create #intentionalmemories sprucing up the house with homemade window displays, festive garlands, and creative centerpieces. My kids love “helping” decorate our windows and creating place cards. Even their little crafts from school or play time can become part of centerpiece or tablescape touches!
The boys love to color and always have a few crayon stubs in the bottom of their pencil pouches. With just an iron and some crayon shavings, re-purpose these little crayons into wax paper hearts to hang in the window! The process of creating these hearts is half the fun, and (with a little control over the color of the crayons used) this is a decoration both mom and little one will enjoy. But if irons and crayon shavings are more than your littles can handle right now, let them sticker up the windows with Valentine’s themed decals. Mess-free and kid-friendly!

Ornamented trees aren’t just for Christmas. Let your kids create the perfect Valentine’s Day centerpiece by adding their own personal touch to this Valentine’s Day “tree.” Set out craft paper, kid-friendly scissors, and a few fun accents like glittery paper or stickers for little ones to make ornaments they can hang themselves.
