Valentine’s Day is almost here, and if you’re looking for some easy ways to add some love-ly touches around your home and serve up something sweet on the big day, I’ve got you covered 💗 If you’ve come over from Ashley Modern Glam, I’m sure you’ve got all sorts of beautiful inspiration for your Valentine’s porch. Welcome!!
Since my kids aren’t so little anymore, Valentine’s Day isn’t quite the same as it was when we made our own valentines and heart-shaped cookie cutouts. I do miss those days, but still enjoy adding festive touches around my home. And of course it wouldn’t be Valentine’s without something sweet and chocolatey! I’ll be sharing my quick and easy take on Pain au Chocolat (perfect for Valentine’s morning) You won’t want to miss it!
Since the blush pink obsession is still in full swing at my house, decorating this year was super easy! After Christmas decor was put away, I brought back a few blush accents in January, and then easily added in my Valentine’s decor. This whimsical banner is simple but so super cute right?!? It could also be hung over a mirror in an entry way to welcome your guests 💕
You all know I love using fresh blooms in my decor. I don’t think there’s an easier way to add colour or impact to a room than with a fresh arrangement that complements your theme or decor. Roses are definitely a fave for Valentine’s, but keep in mind prices get marked way up around Valentine’s Day. Buying market bunches of mums or tulips around this time of year is a wise choice. Tulips also remind me that spring is just around the corner!
These lovely pillows fit in perfectly with my Valentine’s theme, but since they don’t scream “Valentine’s decor”, I won’t be packing these beauties away! Having some seasonal decor that matches the colour palette in your home rather than the holiday itself is a good idea. It’s festive but subtle, and it lasts longer 👍🏻
I like to add sweet hints of Valentine’s Day all around my home. Like a bud vase arrangement and cookies on a side table, or a pretty potted plant and guest towels in the powder room.
My upstairs landing console table got a makeover for Valentine’s Day too and it leads into the master bedroom where brunch is waiting…
Pain au Chocolat and tropical mimosas are served! See recipes below.
Pain au Chocolat
Lindt chocolate bar (Sea Salt or other favourite variety)
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 to 3 tbsp. milk
Preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit. Slice croissants horizontally without cutting all the way through. Tuck 2 to 3 squares of chocolate inside and heat until it melts, about 10 minutes. Combine powdered sugar with milk to make a glaze and drizzle over hot croissants. Serve with fresh fruit.
Combine equal amounts orange and pineapple juice and top with champagne or prosecco. Garnish with strawberries or pineapple and enjoy!
