Last minute Valentine Decorating

Valentine decorating can easily be pulled together at the last minute with a few fun things
 you probably have around the house or can pick up with a quick stop at a big box store. 

Set out red candies of any sort in a clear mason jar tied with a ribbon.
Other romantic colors work, as well, and are bound to bring a smile.
New towels for your kitchen and bath add a fun holiday touch.
Put a tablecloth on in the colors or lace for a romantic table.
Pull sweet romantic bits from anywhere in your home (dig through those cupboards)
and create little vignettes that speak of love. Think of dishes in holiday colors,
the more scallops and "lace" the better. Old love letters, valentines, small
faux flowers or heart anything can be gleaned from storage.
For those who like a modern touch, fill a red metal basket
 with a cozy throw and an eyelet or lace pillow.  
You can add some heart shaped lights to any basket. These are a soft pink and add
the most romantic glow to a dark hearth. I bought them at Target for $3!
I picked up green shamrocks too. 
No matter how you spend your Valentine's Day, take a few moments to make your home
just a bit more romantic and loving, for yourself and your family.
