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.
