Valentine's Day Decor

Today's #tbt isn't an outfit but my fun and festive Valentine's Day mantel and decor. I haven't had a chance to create a new look for this year other than throwing on a heart garland and calling it a day but such is life. Always busy and never feeling like I have enough time for anything or anyone.
Nevertheless, here is some valentine decoration inspiration if you are looking to decorate your mantel and fireplace. All pieces are from Target's collection last year, and the garland is one I made myself with bakers twine and scrapbook paper.
 I also made a DIY chalkboard out of an old mirror -- and these are the awesome results below.
I had intentions of us using this chalkboard as a daily thing where we would write a reason why we love each other. I started it off with I love D because he "makes me tea in the morning" but turns out D wasn't as up to the challenge and this message stayed on the board for the rest of the month. #chalkboardfail

Have you decorated for Valentine's Day? Anyone else feel like they have zero time to do anything???
As for me, I feel like sometimes I spread myself too thin and never devote enough time to anything or anyone. It sucks and I hate that feeling. I really wish there was more than 24 hours in the day : (

  1. I think, wait, I know you do a great job decorating the apt and doing everything you want to through out the day. One thing you might want to work on is being so hard on yourself. Sorry if I missed the point of this chalk board last year (never realized what the full idea was) but be sure to check the chalk board when you get home. :) love you always!!

  2. Lovely mantel! I like the simplicity of the garland you made...so cute and it looks great! Fun idea with the chalkboard too. I like the idea of writing notes back and forth. How adorable!

  3. There's never enough hours in a day! I feel like by the time I get home and finish my homework, Dean is just walking through the door and I'm ready for bed. This is also a pretty busy season at work so my next three weekends are spoken for :-( I think you just have to pick your battles. With that in mind, I didn't do any valentine's day decorating this year. I'm more into the knitting during my spare time haha (I'll be bored with it sometime soon ahaha)

  4. Yes, I have had zero extra hours this week to do anything including cute decorations. I love that garland!

  5. Love your decor! So fun and festive. Take a look at my blog if you have a chance :) just starting out and looking for feedback

  6. Nice valentines decor . Feeling impressive .


I love getting and reading all your comments and respond to most of them when I can. Love hearing from you all! xo
