Have you begun your preparations for Valentines Day? I am a wee bit behind because I am also prepping our guest room for my friend T's annual visit. She arrives on the 11th and will stay for five days. I do plan on placing some fresh roses by her bedside.
We have also begun to address our Valentines, both handmade and store bought. (The pirate cards were found at Goodwill for $2.99. They are by Meri~Meri.)
During our crafting session I was inspired by this photo to create a heart garland to hang over T’s bed.
I have been collecting ideas for our Valentine and birthday tablescape. I like the simple idea of tying a ribbon around a napkin.
For my monthly art lesson at Sweet Boy’s school I am going to introduce the children to Scherenschnitte. In preparing for a child friendly project I have quite a few heart prototypes made from paper napkins so I am going to decorate the top of our dining table with heart shape paper cutouts in a sort of runner fashion.
What decorations do you have planned?
