Primrose Baskets

I’ve always enjoyed giving little presents to my friends and family.  I’m one of those who waits to open their presents at Christmas because I get so excited to watch others open their gifts.  Such was the case this  past weekend.  I couldn’t wait for Valentines Day to give my two best neighbor gals a little bit of love.

Primose Baskets

I found these cute baskets at my local Bartels store, lined them with pink and white tissue,  then added 4 primrose pots to each.  A heart shaped chocolate box, and a homemade card tied with bakers twine finished them off.

Just looking at the bright whites and perky pink flowers makes me a little bit excited for spring.  What about you?


Valentines Day Decor

I don’t go crazy decorating for Valentines Day, but I do like to add a bit of hearts and pink as we get closer to the love day celebration.  Last year I added touches to my family room.  This year I chose to love up the entry.

Let’s take a closer look…

I’ve had the adorable Valentines plate for a couple of years, I think it was a buy from Marshalls.  I thought I would display it and if I need it to serve some sweets I can easily grab it.  I picked up the white ceramic birds on a end-of- the- summer clearance last August at Ace.

Plate and Birds

Speaking of birds, The white bowl was a delicious find at the Goodwill for a whopping price of $3.00.  I added some fake moss, another bird, a birds nest from the Target dollar spot (was a pack of 4) and some hearts.  The hearts came in a pack from the Dollar store.  I just cut them off their sticks. I found the pink flowery stems in the bottom of my craft closet stuffed into a plastic bag.

Next to the bowl is a glossy white candlestick, another cheap find,  $3.00  from Marshalls .  I hunted the store for a mate but never found one.

The branches are from my gulley, previously spray painted for a July 4 centerpiece.  I used the same hearts as last year, but created a different tree in this white pitcher from Ross, rather than the vase.  I think the pitcher was around $7.00.

Last, a wreath from last year, just hung in a different place.


Valentine Collage

I’ve a bag full of Valentine décor left, but I don’t think I’ll use this year.  If you want to check out last years decorations just head to my Project Gallery.

Do you decorate for Valentines Day?  Pink, red, white, what colors do you pull on to use?  Have a fantastic Tuesday.
