Easy and affordable Valentine's Decor

I love Valentine's Day!  It's such a fun day to take the time to show some extra love to those special people in our life. If you decide to plan a romantic meal with your honey at home, or a family dinner to include the kids, decorating doesn't have to be complicated or cost alot of money. I always shop my house first, then pick up some fun, inexpensive items later if needed.

Here are a few helpful tips to plan your next special dinner or gathering:

In lieu of fresh flowers, use a fun tray to hold dollar store decor or things you may already have on hand.  Add various heights to the centerpiece to make it more pleasing to the eye.

Pompom garlands are always fun, and if you have a chalkboard, like most of us do now, write a favorite verse about love or a message to your loved ones.

Choose a fun fabric for napkins and use seasonal candy as decor as well.

Browse Pinterest or your cook books for a fun treat for your loved ones.  This year, I made Cupid Floats.  Just put a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream into a favorite glass or mug, add Cherry 7 up and enjoy!  Simple and delicious!

Other ideas for Valentine's might be a brunch or lunch with your girlfriends or maybe your small group. Invite a few couples over and hire a baby sitter and enjoy some time with your closest friends.

 Paper hearts, inexpensive chargers, candle sticks, and faux flowers are also great and affordable options to transform your space for the special gathering.

And most importantly.....don't forget to tell your loved ones how much you love them!  

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends!
