Baby Girl Valentine's Day Decorations

It is always a sad moment when the Christmas decorations come down.  The house suddenly feels a bit empty and without the warm ambiance of twinkle lights.  But then throw in Marie Kondo's Tidying Up show on Netflix and I was suddenly ready to purge my whole house.

With Valentine's Day being so close to when our baby girl arrives, I wanted to have some small nods to one of my favorite holidays without it taking over the house.  I knew I didn't want to be worrying about taking stuff down while we have a newborn around.  So I used some paper cut outs I had from a baby shower that seemed Valentine themed while also welcoming our baby girl into the world.

So sadly my Valentine's bin will stay in storage this year, but these sweet little pink hearts and baby banner are just enough to spread a little love this year.  I also added a little love themed quote to my letter board and it was done. 

We also got in a little Valentine's Day the end of December!  Target already had out some simple paper hearts and stickers in their dollar section so I jumped at the opportunity to check something off my list early on.  Our little guy loved it and it felt good to squeeze in a little crafting (oddly enough something we really rarely do).

My husband had time off from work for the holidays and it was pretty cold outside.  It was a spur of the moment activity - not one I expected of myself - which I think made the expectations low and the activity extra fun.

So that is how we are celebrating/decorating for Valentine's Day this year.  My guess is we will have a sweet baby girl by the time February 14th rolls around.  I imagine it will feel extra special but also very low key as we adapt to adding another little human to our family.

I will admit as we were crafting I did fantasize a bit about one day doing a Valentine's Day themed tea birthday party for our baby girl!  Oh the fun to come!  I do miss my annual Valentine's Day tea with girlfriends but I look forward to finding new and fun ways to celebrate this sweet holiday in the years to come.
