Can you believe Valentine's Day is less than a week away? I thought it was high time to add a little Valentine's Day decor around Bryce's house. He's out of town on a business trip until tomorrow, so I thought: Why not surprise him with some decorations when he gets home?
Y'all--he's a little paranoid! I told him there's a surprise at his house and he thinks I've totally redecorated and painted his room hot pink! (Well, that MAY be a bit of a stretch, but he is a little worried about what this "surprise" is!)
My goal was to add a little romance and Valentine's fun to the place without overwhelming the entire house with hearts and bursts of pink. Hopefully he'll like the end result!
My first stop on the decorating mission was his dining room.
I've had a heart shaped rose wreath since my first year of college and Bryce told me I was not allowed to put it on his door weeks ago. The wreath is so beautiful though, I wanted to find a spot for it somewhere. I decided it would make a lovely centerpiece on his dining room table....
I put the wreath in the center of the table and added a silver candelabra Bryce's grandmother passed down to him on his last visit!
any tips on getting candles to stay put in their slots? these are not sturdy in the candelabra at all!
I couldn't help adding a little sparkle with some pink heart confetti. I don't think it's too girlie...
doesn't it pop on the red tablecloths!?
My next stop was the kitchen table!
I bought the frame and blocks in the Tarjay dollar section last year...I love the blocks-- they can spell out "xoxo", "kiss", "hugs", and "love"
My last step was to add a few discreet touches in the living room.
I added some confetti to this little dish on the coffee table!
I wish I could keep Valentine's Day decorations out all year!
And the final touch was some red candies in this bowl we bought at Rosemont Vineyards & Winery.
those chocolates are actually leftover from Christmas..oops!
Lastly, I posted on the Sundresses and Smiles Facebook Page yesterday that I was feeling crafty: I decided to paint this dollar store canvas! I need to get a new silver paint pen today to make the "be mine" stand out a bit more to make it complete. I was going to find a spot for it at Bryce's, but I kind of like it in my room...what do y'all think?
Have you done any Valentine's Day decorating?
Have a great day!
