Valentine's Day Decorations....

I LOVE to decorate for the holidays...but I am not great at it like my sister in law, Beckie (I really hope she will put some holiday pictures on her blog soon) her house always looks festive!
This is the "girl's" bathroom at our house, although it seems like makeup and hair are ALWAYS done in our bathroom, and somehow Dad's bathroom gets "messed up" too! Hmmmm...
I got a "silhouette"(a cutting machine like the cricut) last year for my birthday!! So FUN!! I guess I will have a festive fireplace for all occasions now!
I love my apothecary jars..but what do I put in them now ? Christmas was easy...
Anna and I visited the Salvation Army last weekend and we picked up these milkglass beauties for .99 each! Don't worry, they are washed and we even wrote on the plate with dry erase marker and found some ribbon to dress up the plate!
The Danger Zone (good thing there is no chocolate in there, and the cupcake if fake!)
My beloved "Southern Living at Home" dress me-up plate from sweet Dawn Smith! Check out the $4 Wal-Mart adorable Valentine's Day picture frame!

Happy Love Month to all!!!

Cute Cute Cute. Your girls are so lucky to have a mom that makes each holiday special. I am sure they love it. Your house is beautiful and so CLEAN!

Everything looks very "LOVE-ly"! :) I wish I had time to post some pics or something - but if I did, they would be of the boys and probably NOT my house right now!

I am glad you enjoy decorating for all the different holidays, not just the big ones. I just think it makes it so special and fun!

BTW - I am soooo excited about planning Gavin's b-day party now! Thanks for all the great ideas!

One of my friends bought a ton of wrapped heart shaped suckers in the bulk section at Winco and put them into a HUGE glass vase. It looked great. Might not be fancy enough for what you are looking for with the apothecary jars.

*Your "Be Mine" garland looks spectacular!

I love the girls bathroom. It's amazing what a little V-day color will do to a room. So cute! Good ideas!

Donna said...

Inger, I bet your house is always so much fun! I bet your kids love the holidays because you make them fun:) Cute decorations for V-Day. I love the candy station, too!!

Angela said...

I love it all Inger! You have given me some good ideas. I love to decorate for everything! I will post pics of what I've done next week. It's definately not spectacular, but it's a post! Happy V-day!

1st Love the black and white bathroom! A girl after my own heart! The decorations are perfect for the month of love. You should have gotten my package today if not on Friday. I hope you like!

For someone who claims to not be good at decorating for Valentine's day, you did wonderfully! I really like the banner on your fireplace and the cute covered glass domes in your kitchen!

Thanks for coming by today and for becoming a follower of my blog. I really appreciate it and am looking forward to getting to know you better on your blog too!
