Confession: I never decorated our house for Valentine’s Day until last year. Crazy, I know! I started because I wanted to do something fun for the kiddos to acknowledge the holiday, and also, because, well, #TheTargetDollarSpotMadeMeDoIt. Pink has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember, so it’s really hard for me to resist all of the fun things that they have for VDay every year. And, of course, placement is on point because you just can’t help but see all of the pink and red and white goodness right when you walk in the door. Those people definitely know what they’re doing!
With that said, all of the holiday decorations you see in this post are, in fact, from the Target Dollar Spot. The only exception is the “All You Need is Love” sign, which is from Marshall’s, and the pink flowers… those are from Hobby Lobby. And yes, they’re fake. If you’re ever looking for fake flowers, Hobby Lobby is your store! These babies honestly look just as real in person. And if you wait until they’re 50% off, they’re not even all that expensive!
In addition to the decorations, you'll see that we have our seasonal book crate stuffed full of Valentine's Day books and books about Love. I like to change out the kids' books so they can have festive books right at their fingertips, and it also gives them a chance to read books that would otherwise get lost in their massive collections. You can see the post about our seasonal book crate here.
Enough chit chat... here are the decorations!
I hope you enjoyed! And if you're looking for some treats to bake for the big day, look no further than my Strawberry Crinkle Cookies. They are only four ingredients, they are so easy to make, and they are delicious!
So tell me, do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
