I know, I know, Valentine's Day decor isn't a priority for a lot of people.

But hear me out, because there are so many ways to add a little bit of festive to your home without having tacky heart cutouts everywhere.

Although if its a school project from Rowan, give me all the tacky hearts! Bonus if they have my son's smeared hand prints all over them.

If you've been around long enough you know I like to do a little bit of decorating for each holiday, its just my thing. Especially now that Rowan is starting to understand holidays, I think its so fun to add a subtle art print or garland around the house!

By far my favorite ways to make our home festive and add a little pop of color to our mostly neutral space are adding pillows, throw blankets and framed art prints. After Christmas I felt like our entryway table really needed some help... its really long and I always struggle to decorate it without making it either too cluttered or too empty. So I finally decided to try out layering some frames on our mirror and I love how it turned out!


This Plum Target print from Minted's Valentine's Day collection is so perfect because it includes pinks, purples and a neutral grey for Valentine's Day but you can also repurpose it after the holiday in a half bath or laundry room that needs some love! Minted's French farmhouse frame is so pretty if you're going for a transitional or farmhouse style, but it would also be perfect with a modern champagne silver or black frame.


I layered it with a little art project I did with Rowan over the weekend using a potato stamp and paint! By the end Rowan was just finger painting (which is basically inevitable with toddlers and paint, right?!) and I love the combo of the two so, so much!


I also have Rowan's little playroom decorated with heart garland on the book shelves and teepee. He loves the hearts and counts them every time we play in there. I'm pretty sure he takes the garland down and hides it daily, because I find it in the most random places along with a few blocks or Dory figurines he ditched at the same time. Toddlers!

Here are a few of my other favorite Minted Valentine's Day prints that bring a subtle but pretty Valentine's Day theme to your decor! I think these would also be so cute as a gift! Make sure you order by February 1st to get it in time and use the FREESHIP code!



Does anyone else decorate for Valentine's Day or do you give your littles a gift? I picked up a few things in the Dollar Spot for Rowan, but his birthday is a few days before so he'll be spoiled enough as it is!
