Dressed up lamp for Valentines day!
Love is in the air… at my house! One of my favorite days to decorate for, Valentines. In the entry way I dress up the lamp with a sheer wired ribbon wrapped around the shade and tie on the puffy heart tassel. (last year this heart was hanging from a shelf in the guest room!) I love to use items differently each year. I also arranged my heart printed bowl, cute heart boxes and antique valentines sprinkled in! This create a fun vignette to welcome my guest.
I love antique valentines, I also keep special ones the kids have made, and sprinkle them through out my decorating!
So in keeping with the Show Me Decorating steps :
Step 1. pick a Theme or Celebration, Valentines day
Step 2. Color story, Red, pink and black
Step 3. Gather items that coordinate and support the theme and color story. Valentines, hearts, ribbon, serving pieces, heart boxes
Hint: I have big clear tubs, marked for the season or celebration, ie: Valentines, Easter/spring, Patriotic/4th of July, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas!!!! (lots of tubs for Christmas!) Some of my items do double and triple duty!
