As February 1st approached I figured it was time to let go of some of the Christmas decor still in my home. I am not a big decorator of Valentines Day so just a few pieces is fine with me! I want it to be a mantel I can also keep through spring, and I also want to use as much as I have, and buy as little as possible.
A mix of thrifted and new. Some coffee table books with colorful spines, with a thrifted floral vase, and a pop of color in these gorgeous (fake!) ranunculus.
I found this heart felt garland years ago at Homegoods, and it’s just the cutest for hanging on the fireplace. I found some similar ones here.
Going back to using things you have. I wanted to keep this mantel look something that does not need changed often. Mantel decor isn’t one of my strong points so If I can find a look I love with minimal changes to freshen it up, I’m happy.
I always have a stack of thrifted frames, and I happen to have some art I purchased from Artfully Walls that I never hung. That gold frame detail is my favorite against the flowers, and the black frame is so classic, but works great with the blacks in the art.
Thrifted frames making another appearance + easy art. In this spot I put a card my husband gave me for our 10th anniversary. I also framed a polaroid of my youngest. I didn’t have a mat for this frame so I took a page out of a book and used it as the background. Isn’t it so cute how it adds some extra interest to the image?!
I hope this gives you a little inspiration for decorating your mantel for Valentine’s Day!
