With Valentine’s Day being just around the corner, it is time to get in the spirit! If you are looking to add some love to your living space and spread the Valentine spirit like cupid would want you to, we have compiled a list of our favorite simple, easy and affordable ways to help decorate your home. Remember, these decorations do not just have to stay up for the Valentine’s Holiday, they can be present in your home year round as you do love your loved ones every single day.
The easiest way to add some love and design into your home are banners or garland. Turn a plain wall into a photoshoot backdrop or a mantel into the center of attention. There are so many different ways you can style a banner. You can easily buy one at Target or other home decor stores or if you love being creative you can make a DIY banner. In addition, they are so simple to hang, all you need is string and some tacks!

Liven up your bedroom or make a centerpiece for your dining room table by making pink and red vases. Whether you bought flowers for yourself or your significant other bought them for you, they deserve a beautiful vase to be put in! A few ideas are to take a mason jar, extra can or glass bottle lying around your house and paint them solid colors, ombre, add hearts, or add glitter! There are thousands of ways to turn a plain old mason jar into a beautiful vase.

Simply swap out your normal pillows for Valentine’s theme pillows to add romance to your living room. Next time you are watching a romantic comedy with your loved one, you can sit back and relax with cute cushions.

Our personal favorite way to add some spirit into your living space is with spirits! Bar carts are functional, trendy and just overall awesome! The best part of a bar cart is it is so simple to change during the seasons and holidays. Add some chocolate, candy, and champagne and you are all ready to have a romantic night with your love!
