Valentines day decorations & free valentines printables

valentines day low cost ideas title and wm

Hi friends! I feel like I need to call you all something as a group, Our house now a home peeps is pretty long winded. Hi Homers? No, that brings up images of Homer Simpson. Hmm, let’s brainstorm some ideas so I do not continually call you all guys, friends or peeps. It all works, I just feel like we have gotten closer than that, we are in the nickname phase of this relationship. Although Dale and I do not have a term of endearment for each other, not one baby, honey or boo bear has been used my us. Is that weird? What do you call your partner? Anyways Homers, (see, won’t work) today I am prepping for Valentines day with some Valentines day decorations & free valentines printables. I keep things simple when it comes to decorating for this holiday, just the fireplace mantel basically. As for the printables, those are for you! Free to download! Once you sign up for my newsletter you will get access to the printables in the following days newsletter.

dining room valentines day decor

I try to celebrate Valentines day in more then just the “romantic” way. I adore my husband and he is my forever Valentine, but I want my kids to get in on this day of love too! I created this family love tree that sits in our dining room. It is the only Valentines day decor I have in this room, I like to keep things simple this time of year.

This tree is subtle, simple but packs a big punch with feelings. Can you feel the love?

My kid’s got crafty for these canvas prints which are being featured in the magazine Ella & Annie. I think they turned out so cute, and my kids had a blast making them!

Where I go big around here this time of year is on the fireplace mantel. It is such a fun way to make the living room be festive for the holiday, any holiday! I staggered some prints on the mantel, added some arrows and a garland. Quick and painless, not that decorating is ever painful – but this took me a few minutes and my home is decked out for the day of love!

The garland I created with things from the dollar store and spent a total of $2 and created in only 2 steps, which is a crafting world record. I mean, maybe… possibly…

Fun fact, my wedding song is Lifehouse “You and me” which has a great significance for Dale and I. I saw this canvas at Target and had to get it for us, it was too perfect!

I got this print last year for Dale for Valentines day because he loves bacon. A lot!

These arrows are another craft I created for Ella & Annie, details are here. They are sparkly and bright, letting some fun and a whimsical touch brighten up the room.

I decorated this bookshelf with just a few new touches for Valentines day, tiny pops of red.

heart art

I found these red frames at Goodwill and simply put some heart paper in the frame.

These arrows are so versatile, they can go on a shelf, given as a gift or used as a table setting.

I do love the tiny pops of red and pink in the living room. Not that I am ever going to quit my turquoise and gray obsession, but bringing in a few new colors is fun and makes the room feel fresh!

      Thank you!

  2. Your house looks ready for Valentine’s Day! I love the “tree” you created! What an easy way to bring in some rustic v-day decor, but also share things that everyone loves about each other. Your mantel looks beautiful – those arrows are awesome!

      Thank you! The love tree was a new thing and I am loving the traition of it.

  3. These are great and inexpensive ideas. I really think people need to spend less on this holiday and more time with each other.

      I agree, decorating in simple ways and getting your DIY on is the best way to keep costs down.

  4. You are just hilarious – the “homers” comments had me practically spitting out my coffee in a room full of people! I love the simple decor you created. Valentine’s day is my favorite holiday. It’s fun and playful – or mushy and gushy… however you’d like it! 🙂

      I am so happy someone found it funny! I always see bloggers that have a nickname for their crew and my blog name does not help the situation. Still working on it.

  5. I love all of the thoughtful touches to your decor to include all of the family. That makes it so meaningful and I am loving those cute arrows

    lol at Homers. Everything looks great. I have no pet names, but I do for the kids. 🙂

    1. Emily says: Reply

      I have a ton of nicknames for the kid’s some of which gets used more than their actual names. None for the hubby and I though.
