RED AND WHITE VALENTINE DECOR

I just hauled the Christmas decor into the space under our stairs on the lower level. The artificial trees are wedged between the steel beams holding up the house. To keep organized the holiday and seasonal decor operate with a storage rotation system. So as soon as the trees were packed and stacked I rotated my bins filled with Valentine’s Day decor to the front of the sub-stairs storage. Decor is a passion for me to risk a faceoff with a mouse while trying to find Valentine’s garland and red and white decor.

VALENTINE’S DAY

 My husband and I have celebrated Valentine’s Day for decades! With our modest budgets for the holiday I may have snapped a photo of a funny card at Kroger and texted it to him. Most of the time I forget where I put his Valentine’s card so he usually gets it in March.

What I love about Valentine’s Day is i use some of the red accessories from the most recent holidays to the red and white (minus the blue) for the Americana holidays.

You just need to shop your house for red and white. You will be surprised at what you can repurpose in February!

To keep it all organized I store my small red decor accessories in a container marked “red.” That way I can use it for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Memorial and Labor Day, and the 4th of July!

RED AND WHITE

The funny thing about red is it is not my favorite color. I mean, yes I love it for the 4th of July and of course, Christmas but the color red does not look good on me.

The only red I wear is my OPI nail polish.

I love creamy whites and found red and white decor works surprisingly well for the weeks following Christmas thanks to Valentine’s Day in mid-February.

VALENTINE KITCHEN

I carried this theme into my kitchen. There is something fresh about a white tray and red accessories in the middle of winter.

It reminds me of white ski jackets on the slopes-not the most practical to keep clean but a classic look. So I found a workaround for the winter months when the Christmas trees are stored away.

WHITE TRAY + RED ACCESSORIES

I pulled out my red casserole dish and stacked it into the Costco serving trays I found over the holidays. Sidenote: the kitchen aisle at Costco is full of finds you didn’t know you needed. The white enamel bowl with red trim looks great against recycled pine tree branches.

PLANTS

It’s easy to find beautiful plants and florals in the days after the holidays. Some years I bring a few plants inside and they are stunning when they bloom in the middle of winter.

If you are a subscriber to Everyday Edits you know I love a bucket filled with branches and a few frosted berry stems from these guys.

RED AND WHITE DECOR IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY

And, in Colorado, it’s not uncommon for the first half of winter to be kind of blah. So we need to add a little cheery red and calming whites to our winter decor.

And, like I said I don’t love red so Valentine’s is more about soft pinks. But then I noticed while washing these I had randomly tossed these pillows and loved the look.

I found if I had red, white and blue the blue tones down the red or maybe it makes it pop.

But the red and white (and blue) layers are surprisingly cozy for winter.

Sidenote: I found these red and white snowflake pillows at HomeGoods.

And the other side of the down pillow is red so I can bring them back into rotation in time for Memorial Day. Here are fun heart-themed pillows. I found this squirrel pillow in a fun shop in Knoxville when I visited my sister. Try stuffing that into a carry-on. It was that or under my puffy vest!

These fluffy faux snowballs were another clearance find. I tossed them into a red bucket and called it a day!

My new favorite accessory is cloth napkins!

What I love about the red and white winter decor is it will carry me into March. I had so much fun decorating this mid-century bookcase my grandfather made for his daughter (my mom).

Finally, I like one wreath for each holiday. I found this inexpensive wreath for my front door or maybe above my fireplace!

Thank you for stopping by today! Would love it if signed up for my Weekend Edit newsletter or followed me on Pinterest!
