I generally don’t do a lot of decorating for the holiday of love however I like adding subtle Valentine touches to the kitchen, the hub of our home. You’ve heard this a million times but it’s true, you don’t need spend a lot of money to freshen up your decor. You’ll see here that adding subtle Valentine touches to the kitchen is easy and doesn’t cost much.
How to add subtle Valentine’s Day touches to the kitchen
- Create a vignette
A vignette is a group of objects placed in a particular spot in your home that have a similar theme. The open shelves are fun to style and I change the decor items seasonally.
I remembered this pink terra cotta bottle vase I had stashed away and thought it would be just the right amount of pink for my open shelves. Dried pink heather would look pretty in this vase or just allow it to be as is. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to always be about pink. I love this blue and white vase filled with pale pink garden roses. So pretty and simple.
- Fresh linens
A pretty linen purchased seasonally is an inexpensive way to freshen up your kitchen. They vary in price ranging from about $12 to $35 dollars. Etsy is good place to check, also Terrain has this pretty tea towel and Mcgee & Co also has a good selection that vary in price.
- Dried florals
Think out of the box when it comes to flowers in your home. Depending on what’s in season you will see foliage, dried and fresh flowers in my home. I found these dried daisies (currently on clearance) and these dried mini silver daisies in pink. Just a few stems look pretty in a small pitchen or vase.
For Valentine’s Day I wanted to display roses and when I found these at my local market I grabbed a bunch. I like the color against the blue and white vase.
- Chocolate everything
Chocolate cake, chocolate muffins, wrapped chocolate, caramel chocolate, it’s all good and really hits the spot during the cold, dark winter months. If you are looking at chocolate options that satisfy your craving and don’t want to dive into one of those heart shaped boxes, try these chocolate chunk muffins. They are so delicious! You can use chocolate chips if you’d like but they are the best with a bar of dark chocolate.
