Hi sweet friends! Today I get to give you my Simply Valentines décor tour. I’m so glad you stopped by to take a peek. Grab some coffee and feel the love!
Valentine’s Day typically isn’t a holiday I like to go overboard in decorating for, but it’s one that’s simplicity and charm is so easy for me to fall in love with. The best part about decorating for Valentine’s Day this year is that my oldest daughter is finally old enough to get in on the fun.
And how do I know she is my child? She SOBBED when I tried to take down her Christmas tree and begged that we could put Valentine’s doily ornaments on it.
I’m not sure I’ve ever been more proud 🙂
But really, this year was so fun to include little Nora in the decorating. She and I had a morning of crafts; gluing and sticking, hanging and glittering. It was so much fun.
We even added some doilies with glitter hearts above her play kitchen. It’s so fun to add an element of child-like excitement when decorating if you have little ones at home.
This is going to be our first Valentine’s Day in our new house, so I literally started from scratch. I wanted the house to still feel wintery with evergreens and mercury, but bring out the love with pinks and reds. I mostly used what I already had on hand; I love finding old pieces that have been hiding in our basement, giving them a facelift and then bringing them to life again.
I moved a few of my windows and antique doors around and a couple of them found themselves on top of my printing cabinet. I draped them with some mercury garland and made a blush pink and white doily banner. I ended up adding a verse to one of my favorite songs by Addison Road and some pink roses. It came together so nicely!
I see someone K-I-S-S-I-N-G up on top of the china hutch!
I found these little Dutch lovers at an antique store off I-29 a few years back and fell in love with their charm and colors. I cleaned up a galvanized watering can and an old cabinet door to add some dimension and of course strung some twinkly lights around them.
Because twinkly lights make everything happier.
I love looking out my kitchen window while I scrub dishes. It’s where I have some of my best time in prayer and is a place for me to unwind through the day. So I wanted to add something simple and pretty to my favorite window sill.
One of the things I love about my kitchen is the glass corner cabinet. I thought it would be the perfect place for a heart garland. I love that every time that Nora walks by she looks up and tells me how beautiful the hearts are. There is something about a young child recognizing what they feel is beautiful, yes? I can’t wait to see what she thinks is beautiful as she gets older.
I do my best to keep my countertops clear of clutter, but I wanted to add a little pop of color to this kitchen surface, so this little candy dish with vintage pink bulbs was the perfect touch for an empty corner.
Pretty in pink
And of course Bernice continues to look fabulous here on the farm.
I added a vintage Valentine’s Day greeting card to my hood. I love the old charm it brings.
I found this adorable tassel banner at Target. $8.00 people.
It doesn’t get much better (or easier) than that.
I just love this chalkboard sign. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
And of course my dining room table turkey feeder got dressed up for the season with more pink roses and moss filled mercury vases. I love seeing old and fancy come together!
Happy Valentine’s Day from my farmhouse to yours!
And one more shot for sentimental sake.
To the farmer who stole my heart so many years ago in a small Kansas town.
You will forever be my favorite valentine 🙂
