Today, I just want to do a quick share

of my easy - peasy Valentine's decor~.
Most all of Christmas is sorted and packed away --
So I pulled out my big bag of Valentine / Mardi Gras STUFF...
Mardi Gras is VERY close to Valentines this year!
But, honestly my Mardi Gras decor consists of a  wreath for the door...
Oh! And a homemade King Cake 
{YES. I have the baby to put in it -} 
or a bought King Cake, if I'm lucky enough to grab one 
from our local Cajun place before they sell out...
Straight from New Orleans, baby...
Back to my Valentine mantle - 
which is pretty simple also -- 
From Christmas, I kept the window frame, silver tray, 
black lantern, garland [it's lit], and gold / silver candles...
I added in a bouquet of red roses in a milk glass vase, a felt heart garland from The Dollar Tree, my two red glass candle holders with red pillar candles. the photo of my sweetie and me, a little white bird or two... 
and the mirror LOVE that I got at HL a few years back 
- 80% off.
It's simple... 
and I love it .
I moved the chalk board to the entry and added one of my favorite bird prints and a cross-stitch [counted] that I did WAY BACK when we were dating... and I used the chip board 
and felt garland that I made last year...
 The dresser in the dining room has a rose wreath hanging from the mirror and a piece of 'cut-out' Valentine art from HL... [Don't have a photo bc the lighting is SO BAD with no sunshine these days... I'll post one when I can!]
So, again, very simple, and easy -- and I'm sure you can pull together a little festive decor as well... if nothing else, make a garland with a few hearts [or pick one up at The Dollar Tree! like me - lol.]
