valentine's day is surely my favorite holiday. what's not to love about it?
and celebrating love.
that's the best if you ask me.
i went back through my photos from last year to look at some of my home decor for valentine's day.
i hope to do most of these ideas again this year.
i made these garlands using supplies from oriental trading, and some scrapbooking embellishments from makingmemories.
stringing doilies up is super easy and super cheap. these were from the baking section in my local grocery.
we had these cupcakes made for sadie's 2nd birthday party...how precious are they?
arrange heart cookie cutters (mine are from the dollar store) on a platter and fill them with a variety of valentine's candies.
new this year...a garland my super talented and creative mama made for me. she has a shop, too! if you message her, i bet she could even do a custom garland.
and speaking of last year...i cannot believe that this love bug will be THREE tomorrow. oh my goodness, where does the time go?
i went through my recent pins at pinterest, and wanted to share some of my favorite valentine's ideas.
i can never ever get enough of garlands. i LOVE this one below...it's romantic, girly, and funky all at once. original source is creature comforts.
using cupcake liners to make bouquets is super frilly and sweet. i'll be making some of these this year. easy peasy. original source- kara's party ideas
all white heart garland, pure, clean and pretty. i never would have guess how this was made, either. find out how to make it on the original source, michele made me.
Super cute wreath made using vintage book pages. We all know i LOVE a good vintage book page project! See instructions on the original source, lindsey's craft list.
this makes me want to have a party now. love the soft color choices.
how sweet ar these candy sundaes? this and the photo above are both from kara's party ideas.
i plan on making this fairy tree with the chickies.from disney family.
this is beautiful.from papercrave.
another precious, precious way to use cupcake liners. i really want to make these for the girls for valentine's day. i'd like to have one for each of them on their breakfast table when they wake up.

and last but not least, a few pretty gift wrapping ideas. i DREAM of being able to wrap gifts this prettily.
unfortunately, i'm a disaster when it comes to wrapping gifts. hot.mess.
i'll keep dreaming, though.

i also thought i'd share some of my favorite valentine-ish projects.
and one last thing...my friend veronica at shabby chic crafts has a really cool idea available in her shop...
printable valentine's cards.They're $5 and the customer can print as many as they want. Veronica thinks it's an especially great deal for mamas with more than one child.
i wanted to share b/c i think they are so stinkin' stinkin' cute and i thought some of y'all might be looking for valentines!
hope you have a beautiful, blessed tuesday. xxo
