A Break from the Usual Valentine’s Day Decor

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and decorating the home for the occasion is something we all look forward to. Putting up the usual hearts, red roses, and cupids is all well and good, but it can get boring and run-of-the-mill if done every year. When you’re tired of the usual heart-y decorations, create a whimsical yet romantic display for your home with these alternative Valentine’s Day decorating ideas!

XOXO Wreath

Your V-day décor does not have to be all hearts and roses. An easy Valentine’s Day idea is to make use of a holiday wreath. If you have a burlap wreath from the previous Christmas, take it out of storage and put it up on your door or window. Then, pair it with a bunch of branches tied together to form an X. Display your branches above your wreath to complete the XOXO look!

    You can also hang your white Christmas wreath and decorate it with red baubles. For an even easier Valentine’s Day décor, simply wrap the wreath with red ribbon.

      Books can be romantic, too, especially when accompanied by flowers. A simple bouquet of flowers paired with your favorite books can create a lovely Valentine’s display in no time at all. Arrange a few of your most favorite books in a standing position along your mantel, then add a vase of flowers from your garden or local store. You can also add a couple of candles to complete this sweet Valentine’s Day mantel display!

        Another idea for flowers is to use blooms that aren’t roses. While roses are the ultimate flowers for romance, that doesn’t mean that your choices are limited. If you’re looking for a different type of flower to decorate the house with, try hydrangeas. They’re beautiful and they come in various colors such as white, pink, blue, and lavender. Hydrangeas look perfect when placed all around the house. So put up vases of these blooms in your kitchen, bedroom, entryway, and living room!

            A Valentine tree is a great way to bond with your children and have a wonderful display for your home. Invite your children to make paper hearts from cardboard or newspapers, and put strings on them. Afterwards, gather a few dry branches from your backyard, and put them in a vase or Mason jar to resemble a tree. Help your kids hang up their paper hearts on the tree as you would a Christmas tree. You can also ask your children to write simple messages on the paper hearts for every member of your family for a more personalized look!

            With the availability of red, white, and pink artificial Christmas trees nowadays, you could also repurpose your whimsical Christmas tree to take center stage for Valentine’s Day. You can hang the paper hearts on the branches, or wrap a red garland or ribbon around the tree.
