Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for, because the pinks and reds of the holiday are such a bright spot in the dreary winter. Of course, Valentine’s Day decor isn’t nearly as involved as Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Halloween, but there are still some fun ways to incorporate the holiday into your regular home decor. If you are decorating for Valentine’s Day, it’s probably best to start around February 1st. You’ll want to take things down right after Valentine’s Day, since it isn’t a holiday with much longevity. Here are our decorating tips for Valentine’s Day, plus a free printable to frame.

Decorating Tips for Valentine’s Day: Plus Free Printable
Changing up our door wreath for each holiday/season is one of the easiest and most fun ways to celebrate all of the holidays. For Valentine’s Day, you may consider making a wreath, or purchasing one. I really love this flower pink and red wreath on Amazon. Save whatever wreath you buy or make for the next year to save money.
Another way that I change up our decorations each holiday season is with our front living room flower arrangement. I have arrangements that I’ve purchased for each season and holiday. It’s easy to just switch out the current arrangement for a new one. While you can definitely buy fresh flowers every year, I find it easier to have a collection of artificial flowers.
I purchased most of mine at Michaels, where they usually have lots of options to choose from. However, you’ll find them at any craft or home decor shop. Consider buying at the end of the season for the next year – you are likely to find a great deal. Here’s a beautiful red bouquet that you can find on Amazon.
You can also create a beautiful table display or tablescape with some accessories celebrating the holiday. We have a few examples of things that you can make yourself, including this Valentine’s Day Heart Tree and this Valentine’s Day Mason Jar.
You can also buy cute table decor, like the heart-shaped marquis sign shown in the background of the photo above. I bought mine a while ago at Michaels, but here a link to one on Amazon.
Another fun thing to do every holiday is to add a season-specific banner. I have command hooks along the back porch doors that I add fun banners to. You can make your own banner with twine and scrap paper, or purchase one (I like this one from Amazon).
If you’ve got younger kids, you may consider making it a project for them to put together their own banner. Use a banner punch (like this one) to punch out paper, and let them decorate it. You can use twine to connect everything.
