My Best 25 Valentine Decorating Ideas

As I begin to decorate for a season or holiday,     I look back on what I've done in the past.      It  not only gives me inspiration to look at what I've done before,    it reminds me of the decor I have stored in the studio. 

The photo above was taken in my kitchen last Valentines Day.

I left the Christmas tree's up last year and decorated them for Valentines Day.

This is the formal living /  dining room decorated for Valentines day several years ago.      The brown display cabinet on the right is now white and I've taken down the tree I kept in the dining room to decorate for the seasons and holidays.

I redo my wreaths all the time,   but this is one that has never had a make over.      I love it just the way it is!     I made this heart shaped wreath back in the 90's and it's still a favorite.

This is one of the many Valentine mantels that I've created in the family room.     

  A piece of old windmill is the centerpiece,     then I've decorated around it with romantic Valentine touches.

One of my favorite Valentine mantels.........notice that my heart shaped wreath is the centerpiece!

This wreath has been the centerpiece for many of my vignettes.      Here she is this year on the chesser in my bedroom.

You saw this wreath on the display cabinet earlier,    now here it is another year hanging in the hallway.

I usually decorate the hallway for Valentines day a different way each year.

I took down the vintage clothes hanger tree last year........I really miss it!

I don't think I'm going to decorate the hallway for Valentines Day this year,     so I'll just enjoy my photo's from years past.

I've already started decorating the chicken wire heart wreath ,    so you'll see it in an upcoming post.

a Valentine vignette from years past......

My mouse Valentine couple made an appearance this year in the utility room.     They were on the piano last year.

This photo is from many years ago,    but I wanted to show you guys the dried heart wreath that I made a long time ago.     I still have it and it may just make an appearance this year!

You can tell from some of the photo's that I took them a long time ago.......hopefully my photography skills have improved.

I loved this little pink tree that I created a few years back.

I made the Valentine crown on the little cherubs head.......

My Valentine entry one year.......

I haven't used these sweet little guys is several years........

I need to get them out and use them again,    don't you think?

Are you using the popular red truck in your Valentine decor this year?

I created this tablescape for Valentines Day last year........

H and I had lunch at the snack bar a few years back.......

I used a Valentine table runner that I made as a tablecloth for the snack bar.

Another Valentine vignette..........

An this is the last  vignette.......I promise!      LOL!

I couldn't end my post without sharing a pic of the Valentine chenille bedspread that I used one year.......

There's been a few changes in my decorating style over the years........
