Valentine’s Day Mantel

I hope y’all are having a great week!  I’m excited to share my Valentine’s Day Mantel 2012 with you today!  Last year, I didn’t have a mantel to decorate at our old house, so I created a little Valentine’s Day vignette on my apple green desk. This year, I’m pumped to be decorating a mantel with pink!

I love the layered simplicity of how the mantel turned out.  I kept the background {old window and vintage ceiling tile} that I used for my Christmas mantel and I switched out the printer’s drawer for another one that is a bit lighter. My hubs and I dug out the V-day decor out from last year and I had a blast making it work on the mantel!

I love my DIY “Be Mine” Topiary from last year.  I also used my Ruffled Satin Heart Wreaths and little balls.

Are you tired of seeing aqua insulators in just about every mantel I decorate? Ahem. I love ‘em, so they aren’t going away anytime soon. :) My Burlap Valentine’s Wreath from last year adds a fabulous texture to the mantel. The white vases with pink tulips make me smile because they are simple and calm.

An old cigar box and salvaged piece of trim {from Southern Accents} created a perfect stand for my little white vase.  The pink leather flower is part of a boutonniere from our wedding…almost six years ago. Wow.

This yellowing, falling apart framed “art” was a gift to my husband back long before he was my husband.  It is sentimental and I love seeing it every day.  Oh, if you haven’t read our story, it’s a good one!

So pretty!

And that, my friends, is my Valentine’s Day mantel!

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? For me, it’s a simple. refreshing change after fluffy Christmas decor!

  4. Your mantels are the best, always!

    And just for the record, I am not sick of your aqua insulators. It was because of your Christmas mantel that I bought my first aqua insulator. I never liked them much, the shape always bothered me, but seeing all the creative ways you use yours made me want a few. Believe it or not, I found mine at Goodwill for $1.99!

  5. I seriously, get so excited every time that I see you have posted a new mantel!! They are always gorgeous & so well put together!! Your Valentine’s Day Mantel is beautiful!! I LOVE every last detail!
