Winter Decor with a Hint of Valentine

Because I like to leave our Christmas decorations up well into January, when I start putting out winter décor, it seems it's not long before the Valentine's décor also needs to make an appearance.

Here's a look at how I combined the two decors on the sideboard.

 
I was able to create this unique bouquet with these great snowflake branches found at HomeSense last year. I placed them in a white pitcher and added a couple red heart picks.
 
On the mirror above, an icy wreath was adorned with some metallic hearts.
 
This Love sign becomes the centerpiece on the sideboard.

Of course, Mr. & Mrs. Snowman were willing to pose for a romantic picture.

 
They must be in love...look at the happy glow on their cheeks!


These items were placed on a white table runner with some snowflakes and frosty branches along the back of the sideboard.


 In the corner to the right of the sideboard, some candlelight and a faux bouquet with glittered roses add to the ambiance.
 
 On the other side, a trio of cylinder vases are filled with Epsom salt "snow" and Valentine hearts.
 
 
 Red hearts and icy snow actually look great together so combining winter with Valentine's décor is only natural.
 Thanks for visiting!

Visiting you from Normandy, France via Laurie's par Tay and had to let you know that I think the winter Valentine display on your sideboard is delightful. What a brilliant idea to combine the white & red in this way, love Mr & Mrs Snowman!
