Decorating a romantic Valentine Tree will combat those winter blues and warm the cockles of your heart just in time for Valentine’s Day!
For Years I have been decorating a Valentine Tree and honestly I thought I was the only one until I started to do some research. Low and behold I’m not lol.
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. The thrill of decorating for days, even weeks and seeing the decor warming the house is what I look forward to all year. But taking everything down saddens me. The house looks so bare.
I have always left my Victorian inspired living room for last when packing away the Christmas decor. My artificial tree is so beautiful that I procrastinate packing it up. That’s when the idea came to me! Take off the Christmas ornaments, the angel tree topper and the angel skirt and replace them with Valentine themed ornaments, pink ribbon, a cherub tree topper and a white lace skirt.
The past 2 Christmases I gave up my beautiful Victorian tree because I have a lovely lady bunny named Aggie who lives in that room. I did buy a smaller tree in a golden urn that is in my entryway. This is now my Valentine Tree! In fact, it changes with the holidays and seasons!
A Romantic Valentine Tree?
Almost anything can go on a Valentine tree, but you want to start with a clean slate and most importantly a faux tree! Make sure to remove all Christmas or Winter (something new I do for January) ornaments, tree topper and skirt. The purpose is to give your tree a completely different look.
Think pink, white and red. Hearts, cherubs, keys and flowers. Ribbon, pearls or beads and cards. Make it your own style. Make it joyful, fun, and cozy. Pick a color scheme like all pink or white, or a period style like vintage or contemporary.
This is also a fun project to get your kids involved in. Grab the paper doilies, glue, glitter and markers! Wooden hearts from the dollar store can be painted and decorated with jewels. Better yet, get them their own little tree to decorate in their playroom or bedroom!
I don’t stop there though. After Valentine’s Day I don’t have the heart…lol get it… to take it down so it becomes either a Spring or Easter tree. Check out my A Tree For All Seasons post!
