I absolutely love to decorate for the holidays-all of the holidays! Since I have littles, I like to make the holidays fun and festive for them as well. For Valentine’s day, that means a lot of bright red, hearts, colorful candies and cute mugs! When you enter our home you are greeted by a bright red heart shaped wreath.
Our entry way has just a couple touches of Love. Since everything on this table is within reach of my littles, it must be unbreakable.
Our rustic farmhouse bench is on the opposite side of our small entry. I love to use throw pillows here to add color and soften up this wood bench. It is an easy and relatively cheap way to switch out décor every season.
As you move into the main living area, the first thing you notice is the fireplace. I love using banners like this to add to the holiday charm. Plus, it gives the littles something to pull on 😉
Next to the fireplace is one of my favorite pieces, my blanket ladder. I literally use throw blankets year round so this gets a ton of use and it’s even fun to decorate!
Moving on to the dining room, I decided to go with a very simple centerpiece. Again, for us it is all about being kid friendly.
The large pantry my fiancé built for me is next to the dining table. It has floor-to-ceiling enclosed shelving on either side of these open shelves. Our home would literally not function without this huge pantry and as a bonus, the shelves are a fun space to add simple seasonal décor!
In the kitchen, one of my absolute favorite ways to decorate each holiday is filling out my galvanized tiered tray. The lowest tier always remains functional with salt, pepper, butter, etc. while the top two tiers are all fun!
I like to pretend this next part is all about the kids, but let’s be real-mama likes her candy! Nothing makes a kitchen more than sweet treats in cute dishes! These may not be baked treats but I am much better at keeping this stocked than the cookie jar!
I have recently become a bit obsessed with letter boards, I have so much fun with mine! I placed the letter board with the perfect Valentine’s Day quote in my wine rack/wine glass holder here in the kitchen where the whole family would see it daily. Each and every one of them is my Everything now and forever.
This bright spot in my kitchen is The Best Spot in the house! I spend a lot of time here at my coffee station so of course it is one of the first spots in the house that gets dressed up for the holidays.
I have two of these mini decorative clipboards, one on each tiered tray. I love to switch out the quotes for fresh motivation, inspiration or to match the current holiday.
The only washroom downstairs is quite small so décor is limited to this small floating shelf. Because it is all within reach of the littles, simple is best here.
The landing half-way up the stairs is such a great spot to add unexpected touches of holiday charm, especially since it is still visible throughout the entire living area.
Finally, in the master bedroom the décor changes from bright reds and kid friendly everything to soft pinks, golds and lots of flowers. I love these rustic hooks, they are used more for décor than anything else.
The big comfy cozy chair is one of my favorite spots to relax though I usually only get a few minutes to sit here before work. I try to maximize that time with as much comfort as possible which means more pillows and throw blankets! I love that these pillows also serve as holiday décor!
Above the bed, this sweet sign hangs with hanging flower baskets and wooden arch window frames on either side with matching wreaths. Unfortunately, the room is not deep enough for me to step back far enough to include it all in one shot.
I made both the heart garland and the wood bead garland draped across this window frame. I love crafting and adding these sweet touches all while sticking to a very strict budget! The heart garland was free! It took just a few paint chip samples, a hole puncher and twine.
One of the sweetest and most meaningful ways to add little touches of love to your home is with photos of you and your loved ones. This particular photo of Jason and me was taken when I was 8 months pregnant with our first son.
I truly feel like our love story has been a fairy tale so I just could not pass up these cute little signs I found at Hobby Lobby. I might just leave them out year-round.
The décor on top of the dresser gets changed almost weekly. I simply cannot stop tinkering with it. I love using trays to showcase a few special pieces.
Here, I have used a wooden tray turned upside down to add varying heights to this little display in the corner of our room.
The same tray flipped right side up has been given an entirely different look in the same spot. Trays are so fun and so versatile!
In the master bathroom, all I wanted to do was add flowers. I can never have enough flowers!
