I am excited to join Carol on her blog for this month’s Celebrate the Holiday. For me, this month is about organizing and subtle decor

I wanted to celebrate with a super easy Valentine’s Day mantel.

With our living room remodel this previously awkward space is now our own personal library room complete with a fireplace insert and these chairs.

For January and half of February, I wanted easy for the mantel.



This Valentine’s Day mantel is flexibile. No mantel? No Problem! This decor idea works on a mantel and just as well on a side table or dining room table.


It is perfectly acceptable to include a few ornaments in your decor in January. It is like a Christmas decor detox program.

I included red mercury ornaments, white ornaments with hearts ( found on my clearance haul at Homegoods a generous strand of a snow-covered garland that was a nod to snow in Colorado and a DIY Valentine’s wreath.


The wreath is two wreaths- one is from the Dollar Store and the heart-shaped wreath I found on clearance last spring.


Sidenote: I love shopping the clearance aisles this time of year at my favorite stores.

What about you?

I love the warmth of the mantel and the red is a nod to Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

The wreath is layered because I loved the white background of the Dollar Store wreath (after I promised myself I would not buy anything at the Dollar Store after the holidays. I last two days!

Thank you for stopping by today! Please stop by for Valentine’s Day decor ideas or save to your Pinterest boards!
