Valentine Decorating Ideas

Some people have a way of making you feel welcome and happy to be at their house.  Decorating can help us do this too.  Here are some ideas to help you feel inspired to use this holiday of Valentines to welcome and inspire yourself and others who enter your home.  These are pictures of a friend's home where her little touches of red here and there and her wonderful personality made my heart happy as I walked through her door.  Come take a tour with me and get some decorating ideas.
 
If you have a place to display a collection of cute holiday pillows you could send a sweet feeling with their messages like these two pillows do here.

  
Little plaques with their sayings are a fun way to share your love.
 A nice mantel vignette with it's plaque and "loves me" vase gives a little bit of color there.

A mini bookshelf holds more red loveliness.
. 
An easy display is to wrap those red Christmas candles with heart-tied ribbons.
 
Another mantel idea.
 And below the mantel.

I loved how these silver pitchers were made into lovely display items.

  
And I loved how she turned her pot rack into a Heart rack!
 I hope you are inspired to share your love in your home this year through little touches of Red!
