Symbols Of Love

  We love celebrating and decorating our home for all of life's occasions. Seeing symbols of LOVE throughout the home speaks from the heart to all who live in the home and to all who enters. As mothers, those little "decorations", we put out will hopefully give us the chance to teach our children a little something about Gods love for us and how we are to love others. There really is an opportunity to teach in all that we do. We just need to be mindful and take the opportunities. So we would like to show you a few of the decorations we have out in our home this Valentine's season that speak to love and its opportunities.

 Just a simple, pretty flower arrangement put together with items we already collected over the past several years. We pulled out some of our silk flowers and vase and made a sweet arrangement. Red roses are a symbol of love of course.

 A mirror used as a tray to frame the flower arrangement and to keep the rose petals in one place. A simple loosely tied black ribbon helps to tie in the black and red color scheme we used this year.

 Yes, you may have seen this wreath recently in its former life. To avoid spending needlessly, we just added a few more roses to the wreath and changed out the red ribbon for black. With just a few very easy changes,  the wreath takes on a different feel altogether.

                          Don't be surprised if you see some version of this next year!

  Happy to have found a really cute free Valentine printable over at  Spirk Space to use. They have some amazing free printables their. We placed it in a black Dollar Tree frame and added some heart embellishment to it. Thrift store heart bottles, last years Target heart tray and old silk flowers add to the arrangement.

 Love this little printable from It Is What It Is. Beth, the designer shows how this one free print can be used several different ways.

 Our LOVE sign was from last year and we found another great Valentine print from Paiges of Style that we love.

How do you decorate for Valentine's Day? Do you do a little or do you go all out? I guess we fall somewhere in the middle. So when the kids or a visitor ask about this decoration or that decoration, take your cue and teach away! Be inspired, get creative!

                   If it is possible, as far as it depends on you,
                   live at peace with everyone.
                    Romans 12:18
