Valentine's Decor

For the past four years, I’ve hosted a Valentine Party Linkup at Bargain Decorating with Laurie.  Valentine DecorThere is a lot going on in my “neck of the woods” right now, so I considered not hosting it this year.

Then, I noticed that even the deer in the woods (on our mantel) were having a Valentine party!

Some of my vintage Valentine cards were propped up in the snow in the woods.

My Valentine banner was hanging around in the woods too.

Even the flowers were blooming vintage Valentine cards!

I apologize for the glare in these photos.  These cones are hanging on glass doors, and I obviously don’t know how to take a picture of something with the sun shining behind it.

I was inspired by the deer to go ahead and host my FIFTH ANNUUAL VALENTINE PARTY. 

So, on February 7th, I hope you’ll come link up anything having to do with love (whether your “love” is your pet or your child, Valentine décor, Valentine tablescapes, hearts, Valentine cards, or something or someone else). 


I hope I’ll see your link here on February 7th.  I’d love for you to take the invite from my sidebar and post it on your blog to spread the word. You know that I always have a fear that I’ll throw a party and nobody will show up!    Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  laurie

This post is partying with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, The Scoop at Confessions of a Plate Addict, and Open House Thursday at No Minimalist Here.

I was so happy that I saw the party button on Sarah's blog, Hyacinths For The Soul. I am going to become a follower and then take the button and add it to my sidebar. Then I have to get busy making Valentine goodies.
