Valentine Mantel ideas 2013 {Purple, red, pink and Pinecones}

Hello lovelies!

I love Valentines day and all the vibrant reds and pinks it brings to us.

Now this combo, again, a little off beat.

But hey, that’s how I roll…

I’m off! what can I say:)

As the title mentioned, red, purple, pink and pinecones.

It’s a little dangerous having this chocolate around when you are dieting.

But, I am being good



I was a little nervous about my color combination this year.

But you





We love a touch of vintage, and whimsy too!

It all started because of these vintage bottles I found a few weeks back

I love them on our mantel

and had to keep them for a while.

And these urns must stay for a bit too. I just filled them with some simple paper faux stems.

 They can carry me til Spring on the mantel.

Floating hearts came from dollar tree.

Decorating for the Seasons and holidays do not need to cost a fortune.

Just get creative on the cheap.

I tied the hearts  with a very thin

pink ribbon and then as you can see streamed them down.

XOXO came from Tarjay around 10 years ago.

Rose petals on the floor.

I know it seems early to be decorating for V-Day, but I tell you all the stores push it up, earlier and earlier each year.

    Love your Valentine’s touches, Debbie! I don’t really decorate for Valentine’s Day, but I like to have a “nod” to it with some red and romantic looking things about. Plus, what I make for my Etsy, I sometimes put around {rather than just having it sit on a shelf in my craft/sewing room waiting to sell!}. Your saying you’re “off” made me smile. I had a running joke with one of my grandmothers when I was a teen. I’d leave her and say “I’m off!” and she’d say “You certainly are!”.

    I love those sweet hanging hearts Deb! Working at DT I see all of it and just never thought to do that with the hearts…neat idea!

    Really like the touches of purple, very nice! It isn’t garish, just seems to bring out the red & pinks a bit stronger. Love the bottles too. I’m always looking “on the cheap”; $ Tree & Target $ spots have such fun things!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Oh Debbie, I’d be eating all that chocolate if I had it close by! So proud of your “will power” on your diet…you can do it! Love your mantle, so “sweet” with all those “hearts”!

    I love it, and I love the addition of the purple to Valentine’s Day! Why not be different? It looks great. Those purple bottles are fantastic too!

    I put bright red bows on my outdoor topiary that has hot pink cyclamen growing around the base of the topiary. At first I thought it was too much, but left it. I’m surprised at all that comment on it when they come to our door. Guess bright colors are attention getters. Your mantel and valentine touches will get attention. They are full of color and those rose petals …… very romantic. 😉

    I don’t think your off. I think you are a very creative person. I love those bottles! I am a purple person.
