My Updated Valentine Mantel

Last Valentine’s day I created my first Valentine’s Day Mantel. I was absolutely in love with it but I am learning that I get a bit restless when it comes to decorating. I struggle to leave well enough alone. So I decided to add just a couple changes to my Valentine’s mantel this year.
I kept most of it the same and decided to just add a few more items to warm things up.
Under the white pitcher filled with pink flowers, I put a couple old worn books. I love the extra warmth and texture that they provide. Instead of those black iron candle stands, I used some ornate goldish ones. They are a lot more frilly and romantic!
Nothing earth shattering, just a little updating.

  10. This is lovely! I don’t do Valentine decor, but I’m reconsidering it because yours is so pretty and subtle with the soft pink, not blaring with red (which would look so out of place in my living room).

  11. I love the book page wreath! Swoon! I hope you will link up with me here:
