I’m a simple gal when it comes to Valentine’s day, I do not request for much, except for maybe some chocolate covered strawberries, and I am not much on decorating for it either.
Decorating for this holiday, is especially hard for me since I am not a fan of the color red or the combination of red and pink. No offense to all those that love the color red! I am just about my neutrals, as you can see throughout my blog. Even for Christmas, I keep the red to the minimum.
This being said…it is just too hard for me to buy decor for this Holiday without it clashing with my decorations or looking a little….cheesy.
Okay I said it…Valentine’s day is cheesy!
Most of the decorations they sell in the stores look like they should be in a Kindergarten classroom. Which is probably why my son would appreciate me hanging cardboard hearts on the walls and some window sticky’s…I just can’t force myself to buy them.
So, this year I had to come up with something so that the kids got in the spirit of V’day…and the decorations would work with my decor. Luckily, Michael’s craft store had just the products I was looking for.
