Valentine Day Decorating, Some Simple Ideas
There are simple ways of decorating for this holiday and create a festive mood for a room or two. The decorations below are from Teddy bears that have been collected over years, plus little candles and other items that I have around the house.
I wanted to share with you six different ideas to create a little Valentine flare in your home.
Notice I put seven (odd numbers in decorating) Teddy bears in the rocking chair and a white lace tablecloth acts as a back drop, or accent. The bears have the Valentine theme of red and white with some having romantic cute sayings. The rocking chair can be put in a corner or used as a focal point in a room.
Using the sled to create a little Valentine magic accents a room nicely.
If you don't have an old sled, find something around that you could put a few stuffed animals or other accessories on. Notice how I have the bear in the center with a little bit of artificial flowers and a red pillow.
These soft textured pillows are very popular today and creates a soft look to the old sled. I decorate the sled at Christmas in a simplistic way of attaching a little live pine. In the decorating tips there is a picture of the simplicity of the pine on this sled.
If you have plants that sit on a table or stand, arrange your stuffed animals or other holiday items in and around the plants. This really can create a festive mood.
A great way to do this is to put your tall candles in the back, with a bigger candle in the center and two smaller candles on either side of the bigger candle.
This balances your theme area out and the red colors of the candles act as a nice focal point. Also notice how the three main candles are shaped in a triangle form. This is a great way to create a design in accessories. Below is a great decoration you can use year after year.
Take a couple of bears on a table or accent table and the focal point can be a yummy candy dish. The container has a small heart which depicts the holiday atmosphere.
The next photo is a great way to combine candles, bears and a basket. The tall candles are in the background with the focal point being the bears in the basket.
Neat idea to create a look once again on a dinning room, kitchen or other table. This is also awesome on a shelf in any room.
I like the idea of putting martini glasses on the table with candy filled in each one of them.
Match your other table settings with the color of the candy. A great way to blend in the celebration with color and even texture.
The last picture is a great idea for your table. Put a solid base table cloth on the table. Add a white lace table cloth over the top of the solid one.
You can use red or pink for the base color. The lace gives the table a romantic feel, and also eloquent. The base red color will also accent any other red items you put on the table. Simple idea resulting in a warm looking table.
I wanted to share with you just a couple of simple decorating ideas for the Valentine holiday season. Of course you can use flowers and other accessories to spruce up your living space and get into the romantic mood. Take things you already have around your home, apartment, condo, or other living space and create a little holiday magic for you and your love ones.
