The Adventure Starts Here: Valentine's Decor - Little Things

Valentine's Decor - Little Things

Since it's February and almost Valentine's Day, I decided to make our little apartment a little festive.  I didn't go crazy, but I'm enjoying the little touches of red, pink, and hearts sprinkled around our home.  In the past I would decorate with a holiday printable in a frame, put out my heart shaped candle holder, and fill a glass jar with some conversation hearts.  But since Noah would most likely break every single one of those things, our decorations have become more toddler friendly.  In addition to putting a few decorations up, I even baked some cookies.  This is my Angeletti recipe that I make at Christmas.  I just use different color sprinkles to work for each holiday.  I found the heart shape plate at Target :)


Upon entering our apartment, we are greeted by our Welcome Sign!  Chris got me this welcome sign for Christmas 2010 and I love switching it up each month.  

^^^ I spy a little baby in the background!

I also made this simple heart garland using pre-cut hearts and some ribbon (from Michaels).  I love having it up, but it makes me realize how bare our windows look!  Since we are renting, we've only hung curtains in the bedrooms, simply to block out the light in the morning.  


I love this mailbox chairback we got for Noah.  I filled it with books for Noah to open on Valentine's Day :)

 

I also cut out some hearts from scrapbook paper to hang on our bulletin board.  I also plan to put our Valentine's Day cards on here to display :)


We've been getting into the Valentine's Day mood by reading these books before nap and bed.  Noah loves lifting the flaps in "Where is Baby's Valentine?" and in "Hugs" he can feel the soft fur of the bunnies and puppies.  


And since Valentine's Day is all about love, I will leave you with a picture of me with my little man from yesterday.  Jess of Sadie Sky Boutique and Ashley of Words About Waverly have started a linkup to share a moment that reminds us it's the little things in life that matter most.  I couldn't agree with this more, so I knew I had to join in!  

  Noah's newest thing is to take all of the washcloths (that we use to wash his face after meals) out from the back of his high chair.  He sometimes likes to put one on top of his head.  Yesterday he did this and then walked over to me looking all proud.  I decided to join in on the fun and put one on my head and take a picture.  He thought I was being so silly.  It's the little things!
