Holy camole! Where has the time gone!? I can’t believe it’s been SO long since I’ve posted. If anyone follows regularly, sorry, sorry. I blame life. Or the busyness of it at least. And I blame how much I miss blogging for the reason that I have returned.

And with my return, I bring my mantel. All decked out in Valentine’s goodness.

It’s pretty similar to what I did last year, but I liked the elements I had created and wanted to use them again.

Last year I shared with you how I created this ‘love’ art.

And this whimsical Valentine’s Day bunting.

Those were the two main elements on the mantel this year. I wanted to keep it clean and simple. To finish off the look I used two rock vases and a matching votive. Those say ‘love’ to me too as I actually go them on my honeymoon.

Ahhhh memories…

I placed a few flowers in the vases. I love orchids. They were actually in my wedding bouquet so there is another nod to love for ya.

In the small votive holder I placed a little flower tea light. I picked up a package of these on vacation last summer and think they are so cute!

I love the colour in this particular one. It matches the orchids, art and bunting perfectly.

So LOVEly 😉

And a parting orchid shot just for fun.

Have any of you decorated for Valentine’s Day? Any big plans or crafts in store? I have a fun one planned to do with Chace (my four-year-old) this weekend. I’ll share the deets when we are done!
