Although it’s only been a month since I packed away my artificial Christmas tree and wreath and garland set, I thought I’d bring them back out this February for Valentine decorations that are a bit out of the box—a Valentine’s Day tree and mantel! Accompanied by DIY Valentine’s garlands, ornaments, and other easy Valentine’s Day ideas, your repurposed Christmas decorations are sure to fill your home with love.

Christmas Tree Market’s colorful artificial Christmas trees are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Give your Valentine display more personality with a pink tree adorned with adorable cherubs, a white tree wrapped in a red ribbon, or a red tree decorated all over with Valentine symbols. And don’t forget your wreath and garland decorated with pink and red ornaments, which you can place anywhere in your home!

It’s not uncommon for the winter blues to set in, especially as the season reaches its peak. Here in Michigan, we’re getting our fair share of winter weather as the polar vortex seems to be hovering right over our backyard. However, your décor doesn’t have to look as gloomy as the weather! To perk up your home during winter, splash some color to your indoor space with winter flowers! Here’s a list of winter flowers that can perk up your home décor in an instant!

1. Tulips

First on our list of winter flowers is the tulip. Tulips are famous for their beauty and wonderful range of colors that any home will instantly become more cheerful with a vase or two of tulip buds!

Ina Garten is my celebrity crush! I love it when she shares her wonderful ideas on her show, “Barefoot Contessa.” Her approach to food, entertaining, and decorating is classic, simple, and beautiful, and it makes people feel at home!

Stay Simple yet Elegant
 




 
Ina Garten’s dining room staples are a cozy farm table and white tableware. From there, she couples her décor with simple table decorations and arrangements that still ooze elegance. To get the same style, utilize pieces with neutral colors, such as burlap or rattan placemats. You can also try repurposing items. Ina Garten uses basic, everyday items whenever possible, such as having a kitchen towel serve as a table napkin during casual dinners.
