Valentine's day decor

My Christmas decorations are all packed away. My home felt so empty and blah...I definitely have to add something and I think a few Valentines decorations will be perfect. I love the combination of  pink and red. I'm adding a touch of pink and keeping the red pillows and quilts.
My youngest daughter and I made a fast and cute Valentines garland. I bought a pack of felt hearts from Hobby Lobby and ribbon from the dollar store next door. We tied the little hearts with the ribbon and made the cutest Valentines garland. The pink, white and red hearts set the whole mood for my Valentines day decor.
I made a few pink heart pillows to add to the red quilts and pillows. 
It is so easy and inexpensive to change the mood of a room just by adding ribbons, quilts, and pillows. I'm trying my best to decorate for the different seasons by using things in my home and not to go and buy a lot of seasonal decorations. Haha my husband is very fond of this philosophy. There are so many cute ribbons and I can store all my ribbons in one place for the off season.
I also love using silk flowers in different colors. I can move these flowers around in my home without putting them away in storage.
This cream heart wreath on the lamp lights up beautifully in the evening.
A red ribbon with white polka dots wrapped on a plain vine wreath is perfect for Valentines day. I added a $1 Valentines heart. 
Here's another really inexpensive project. On my entry table I placed a glass jar filled with 2 packs of Valentines day heart candy from the dollar with a flame-less candle.
A heart scrapbook paper in a painted frame with 2 little glass hearts with magnets on a wire pear. 
Thanks for visiting and happy quilting,
