Gift Wrap: Pink and Gold for Valentines

Monday, January 12th, 2015

We always try extra-hard to anticipate special events and holidays during the winter months…we need something to look forward to!

We pulled a few gold sprigs and wrapping paper from our Christmas supplies and added it to our pink and white supplies. The fabric blush flower was a hair clip we found on clearance at Claire’s for .$50 and the gold heart is a pendant from an old necklace.

Ha! Now we can’t wait to start making plans for the month of looove!! How about you?

Valentine’s Day Table Setting

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Every February, our sis-in-law Kimberly throws a Valentine’s dinner for our family. Her kids get so excited and we all make little Valentine’s for each other. Kimberly goes all out with setting the table, and always makes an amazing meal. Now we all look forward this event every year. I love the idea of making a bigger deal out of little holidays (especially in the winter months)!!!

I decided to get a little festive in our dining room by pulling out red and pink party decor and buying a few heart balloons from The Dollar Tree.

This literally took about 10 minutes and no effort at all. It’s amazing how just pulling a few pieces out and spending a few minutes can make an ordinary day feel extra special. Happy love month everyone!!!
