My Valentine's Day Decorations (Fake Mantel)
My lantern from Blessings Unlimited. I added some heart ornaments to the interior, and attached the cute hearts on wire (a gift from Domestic Fashionista) to the top:
I also have some cute Valentine's blocks I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot a month or two ago. I stuck those in front of an apothecary filled with glittery styrofoam balls. You might recognize those from Michaela Byrd's Hello Kitty Birthday Party. I love to reuse stuff!
The other side of the armoire is tricky. I keep a small antique trunk up there. I know that seems odd, but my dad refinished it for me as a Christmas gift one year, and we just don't have space for it anywhere else. It is sometimes nice to have it for layering....
And across the front I have some of those country berry bead thingies with a heart garland wound through.
One more, with the dog who insists on being in the shot:
So...nothing that will blow your mind here. I was hoping that if there are any of you who are mantel-less like me, you might pick up a few ideas. You could use the top of a bookcase, a buffet or sideboard...
Did you decorate for Valentine's Day this year?
