Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching!!
I love and fully embrace all that is the commercial holiday of Valentine’s Day without shame and here’s why; winter in Upstate NY can drag on for a seemingly endless duration. I quickly tire of all the slush, grey skies, freezing temps, and gloom. Once the first few snows and excitement over a white Christmas are gone I’m ready to move on towards sunshine and cheer, and it can be tough to do that amidst the blah backdrop of mid-winter. So I create my own sunshine by shamelessly celebrating every random holiday with abandon including Valentine’s Day. National chocolate day? Check! National popcorn day? Check! I think you get the idea…
This year the Target dollar spot made decorating for Valentine’s Day pretty easy. It was full to bursting of all things pink, glitter, hearts, flowers, and love galore. Plus I’m a sucker for all things Target if we’re being honest.
I used gel window clings from Target to decorate the three front windows and the bedroom window. I placed a felt banner on the wall above our table hung from decorate command hooks. I then used a few items I had on hand and what I picked up at the dollar spot to sprinkle some Valentine’s Day love and cheer throughout the rest of our home.
I placed two felt pennants in a mason jar on one window sill.
So there you have it – my beat the winter blues Valentine’s Day decor!
