Today I played hooky and it was soooo much fun. I highly recommend it! 😉 I guess it wasn’t really hooky since I snapped some fun pics and garnered some great Valentine’s Day decorating ideas to bring back and share with you.
Such a great way to spend a cold January day. I had lunch with my friend, Marie, followed by a fun day of shopping. We visited all our favorite shopping haunts around town and we didn’t come home empty handed. I found pretty green napkins, just right for a future spring/summer table setting.
Upon arriving at Marie’s home, I had to snap a pic of her fountain out front. Don’t you love it!
As you can see, it’s cold here in Georgia right now.
Marie decorates her beautiful Victorian home for all the holidays and I couldn’t wait to see what she had done with her front porch for Valentine’s Day.
Let’s step a bit closer and check it out.
A cute doggie bearing a sweet Valentine’s Day message greeted me at the end of the walkway.
The porch was all decked out with fluffy red garland and beautiful hanging lanterns. Marie found her garland at treetopiadotcom online and it came prelit. Awesome! The lanterns are from HomeGoods several years ago.
Let’s take a closer look at the decorations on the lower part of the columns.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Is this putting you in the mood for a little Valentine’s Day decorating? Marie found the hearts in Michaels.
A visit to Marie’s home is like entering a magical fairy land. My eyes grow big, my heart beats faster and I’m suddenly 10 years old again. Thanks to this thing called the internet and a blog, you can come, too! We’ll be 10 years old again together. Deal?
We’ll be going inside soon and I can’t wait to share Marie’s Valentine’s Day table setting with you for Tablescape Thursday!
