Do you dress your home in hearts and flowers in preparation for Valentine’s Day? Do you add a little red and pink to your current decor on February 14th, and then take it away on the 15th? Either way, these simple Valentine’s Day inspired ideas will help you add a romantic look to your fireplace mantel (bookshelf, kitchen counter) in time for the holiday.
Paper hearts are quick and easy to make, and whether they are unframed, framed, in multiples, or displayed as an individual, they add an appealing pop of color and a welcoming look to the room.
Flowers and decorative vases offer fresh and often vintage charm, even when the blooms you display are not from a garden. Select pink and red varieties, and add in white or purple for extra glamour.
Candles are perfect for setting warm, welcoming and romantic moods, and for Valentine’s Day they can make any meal or gathering more special. Experiment with different sizes, styles and numbers to achieve the best look on your mantel.
If this was the mantel in your home, how would you decorate it? Would you try a heart-themed garland, or use antiqued candlesticks for a romantic look? Share your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
