Are you a romantic at heart? These heart decorations for valentines day decor are whimsical and budget friendly. Decorate in one fell swoop for the entire month of February!
Decorating for the seasons is something that I love to do! It’s a chance to add in some fun and whimsy and really change up the look of a room. Life tosses enough drama our way, so why not add in some fancifullness along the way! As Dr. Seuss said “From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.” This is just a fun and easy look to recreate for under a mantel, a wall or around a bar cart for a Galentines party. And the best part may the low cost at under $20!
Out came the pink rug that will stay up for the month of February. I LOVE this rug and you can find it here – PINK RUG. A quick swap out of pillows for a few that I have in blush pink and bring on the balloons!
Heart decorations valentines day decor
If you have been following for awhile, you might remember my CREATIVE FALL MANTEL post from last year. I went with the same concept for the heart decorations valentines day decor theme. You can find all of these balloons in a handy package at this link: ROMANTIC BALLOON PACKAGE. At under $20 it’s a WIN/WIN as far as I’m concerned!
How To Create The Look
- Blow up your balloons! I did not have access to a helium tank but being a DIYer I do have an air compressor. The package comes with a stiff straw that you insert into the balloons to aid inflation. Not sure if you can use the air from a vacuum in reverse, but maybe. I only used the compressor on the mylar balloons and blew up the others the normal way.
- Find a spot on your wall or mirror to hang the LOVE balloon, as this will be your focal point. I used double sided scotch tape to adhere.
- Next came the mantel, but if you don’t have a mantel that’s okay too! I simply propped the hearts on the right, added some flowers in bucket and jar on the other side for symmetry. While I’m not a strict symmetrical lover personally I believe in some balance. A couple of pink pillar candles and then a final balloon styled into the copper bucket.
- For the balloons under the mantel I started at the floor and piled them up, stacking and varying colors. I tried taping them to the wall but had no success with our plaster walls. If you have drywall or shiplap it would probably work with double sided masking tape.
- My vintage pink bench is holding the balloons in this heart decorations valentines day decor arrangement in place!
These two are always curious and had to see what mama was up to! The aspect of seasonal decor that I love so much is the flexibility and the temporary nature. I hope that you try this and as I said it’s less than $20…so have fun with it if you do!
