I don't usually decorate the house for Valentine's Day. It's not that I don't appreciate the sentiment~ but February 14th is such a fleeting occasion. Here today, gone tomorrow!
But since I'm having a baby shower on the 12th, a very pink party to be sure, I felt it appropriate to add some touches of L*O*V*E to the mix.
I love layering beautiful papers when I create banners.
I have about 3 Scrabble games. I buy them at thrift stores whenever I can find them. I like using Scrabble letters to express my feelings. Though, it's not as if I'm ever at a loss for words!
My friend lent me her heart punch from Stampin' Up! I used it to craft a little heart garland. I then draped it over my all season stick-tree; a consignment shop find.
Here is one of the most labor intensive projects I have ever undertaken! 65 crepe PINK crepe paper camellias on a Styrofoam wreath which I wrapped with white gross grain ribbon! I do like it; so much in fact that I am going to leave it hanging all the way through Easter Sunday.
There's not a lot of overdone fuss for Valentine's Day. But there's just enough to remind Larry of how happy I am to be his wife. I guess Valentine's decorating will become a new tradition for me. I have to admit, it was kind of fun.
Joining the party at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie. Enjoy!
You can also find me at Dear Lillie's Valentine Party. See you there~
