It doesn’t take a lot of money or a lot time to decorate your front door for any holiday! This Valentine’s Day I went back to the basics to create a sweet, simple, and inviting look for my Valentine’s Day Door!

My Valentine’s Day wreath is the star of the show in my Valentine’s Day front door decor! I made the wreath using something I had left over from Christmas! You can see what I used HERE! I kept my Valentine’s Day front door really simple this year. In fact, I feel like it can last for a while. I mean, sure, there’s a heart, but love is something to celebrate every day! Ok, I might be stretching it a little bit, but keeping your front door simple certainly makes it easier to transition into the next season or holiday.
Besides the tulips in the Hunter boots, I didn’t add any pink or red to my Valentine’s Day front door decor. I really thought about adding some color. I even cut some pink ribbon to put on the Valentine’s Day wreath and faux trees, but I decided that I liked the monochromatic look this year. The great thing is that I can change it up next year by just using different ribbon!
I usually have these faux arborvitaes, from Wayfair, on my side porch, but they are so cute with the little ribbon toppers, that I felt like I needed to move them to the front so they got a little more action. I keep them out all year round. They are sitting in baskets that I got from Ikea. The baskets are little deep, so I put a couple of bricks at the bottom and placed the faux arborvitaes on top. To make it more secure, I stuffed plastic shopping bags around the base and then topped it with some Spanish moss to hide the bags. In the spring I lose a little bit of the moss because the birds like to add it to their home decor.
The black and white grossgrain ribbon from Hearth & Hand with Magnolia by Target blends really nicely with the doormat from that line as well. I really like the simplicity of the colors and decor for my Valentine’s Day front door. Sometimes less is more.
My front door is a custom color that I mixed when trying about fifty different blues from Benjamin Moore! I ended up mixing two of the blues and finally being happy. I don’t remember off-hand which two blues I mixed, but luckily Benjamin Moore keeps a record of all the colors I use! That’s just one less thing I have to remember. Lord knows that I could use a little extra room for some things in my head.
I used faux pink tulips that I got at Michaels a couple of years ago to brighten up my Valentine’s Day front door. I already had them and I didn’t have to go out and buy some. Spring is right around the corner…and down the street a bit, but tulips definitely make me happy. (You can find the source details below.)
