Valentine's Day Mantel..er..fantel.

Can you guys believe it's almost February? Where the heck did January go, seriously? My littlest lovie turns three on the fourth so we don't go all out V-day too early because I don't want her growing up thinking we skip over her birthday decor but, something simple was definitely in the works. I was over the winter scene that was previously hangin' out. Plus! Beth decided to have a Valentine's day mantel party and I can't skip out on a good party. True story.

So, enjoy our so *SIMPLE* it's sick Valentines decor.

Annnddd...GO!

Photobucket


I used a free printable from the girls at Eighteen25, love their blog.

A photo of the hunny-bunches and I giving a little PDA, I think this is the only picture up of him and I together, how sad is that?

And, blue ball jars- LOVE these. Love love love.

Some simple cherry blossoms to add a little romance.. *Wink*




I love it. I love that it doesn't scream Valentine's day, but it does.

That all makes sense, I know.

Everytime you say the word Fantle, I laugh like crazy.
Also, that pic of you & your hubs is just way too cute.
Me & my hubs have like NO photos of us together, without kids that isn't a wedding photo.

I'm all about simplicity right now, too. LOVE the added blue of the jars. Simple and beautiful!

The aqua Ball jars and the pink blossoms and subway art look so pretty together.

That is the only photo you have of you two together? Wow, it's great, but you've got to get some more stat. I remember trying to find photos of my parents together for their 50th anniversary and I couldn't find any - I could barely find any with both of them in the same picture even with us kids. It was always one of them and the kids. So make sure you have some for your 50th. You've got to plan ahead.

I have been following your blog and love all the ideas.

Feb. 4th is a great day to have a Birthday... mine is the same day and my mom always had V-day set up the day after my birthday so it was not like putting Christmas before Thanksgiving.

Love it! Clean and simple. Simplicity is beauty.

Guess what Rachelle! I am so excited. The house we are renting has that big ugly brown paneled wall around the fire place. I mean, it is the ugliest part of our house as you know. The owners finally said we can paint it. I am so excited! Oh wait, I said that already. Well it is true both times. hehe :)

Simple but soooooo cute!! :)

Jill said...

That turned out SO good! I think it's my favorite mantle ever! And I love that it's not actually a mantle (or maybe it is and I just can't see the fireplace) because I don't have a fireplace either, so now I know I can still indulge in the mantle decorating, just get a shelf! I'm featuring this.

Hi! I found your blog via the mantle party. I really like the teal mixed in - so its not TOO loud, but still festive. Nice job!
