Hi all! Today I’m joining a Valentine’s Day decorating blog hop and we’re all sharing some simple Valentine’s decorating ideas! Usually I don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day, especially since my children are a little older now. But I do love a touch of pink as a nod to the holiday, and of course, you know how much I love flowers!
Decorating with flowers is such an essential for me; I just love the life they add to a home. And they can definitely be easy and uncomplicated. (For even more tips and tricks on floral styling – as well as ideas on how to get fresh flowers every week and still stay on budget, check out How to Decorate with Flowers: 7 Easy & Stylish Tips!)
What I love most about flowers is that they lend themselves to any season, and you can use them in a myriad of ways. So here are some simple Valentine’s Day decorating ideas with flowers….
What could say “Valentine’s Day” more than pretty pink roses?!
And I love pink against the white kitchen!
For me, the best Valentine’s Day decorating is the simplest. Here I gathered my hobnail pink pitcher along with a cake plate, my Valentine’s heart plates (you can see them in my tablescape here), and a pitcher of pink roses to create a focal point on the counter.
In the living room, I used the pink roses from my Valentine’s tablescape, because, well, why not? I had to do the tablescape in January for a blog hop, and I couldn’t keep the Valentine’s table out all that time, so I’ve been enjoying the roses in here. Believe it or not, these roses and the little white flowers lasted a full three weeks!
I find the softer pink of these roses to be so soothing and serene. And definitely romantic!
I love to move things around and create different vignettes. Shopping your house is definitely the easiest way to decorate (and the least expensive!) These pink hobnail glasses are actually candleholders! However, I use them as both 🙂
I found this old cake plate that is done in reddish-pinks and brought that out too! If you simply look around your house, you may find you have more pink or red than you thought! You can easily use any red dishes, etc from Christmas, and if you don’t own any pink, then simply do as I did and put some pretty pink flowers in a white pitcher or vase.
This week instead of pink roses, I went with pink tulips!
And I love the darker pink roses, too!
Last year I did mostly red and white for my Valentine’s decorating, which you can see in this post. Which is why this year I was really wanting to just use the pinks. It created a softer, more romantic version of the holiday, which is what I was going for!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
