Make a Valentine tree

Christmas decoration put away procrastinators can parlay their desire to extend festivities by turning the Christmas tree into a Valentine tree.  Make a bold statement with a large tree or play it more subtle with a table top version.

Last year there was a trend for pink flock table top trees as well as pink and silver aluminum trees in various sizes. If you happen to have one of these they translate perfectly to Valentine’s Day. If not, no worries, traditional large pine tree varieties work beautifully as well.

 

Build on a good base. Walgreens is a consistent good source for pink lights. And be creative with the tree skirts. Walmart has Valentine theme fabrics that can easily be draped around the tree base or use a metallic or red skirt from Christmas. Put love objects at the base like a cupid, stuffed animal or heart pillow.
Stores have become more attuned to minor holiday decorations and you can now find heart ornaments at your neighborhood Walmart and Michaels Craft stores. Load the tree up with lots of a variety of hearts including cookie cutter hearts. These stores also carry aluminum, pink and red cookie cutter hearts and other love symbols like lips and occasionally cupids. Pick up some Valentine ribbon or lace at Michaels and wrap it around the tree to engender a Victorian feel.

 

Walmart also has a good assortment of small Valentine stuffed animals which tuck very nicely into tree branches. Flush out your tree with old and new Valentine cards.  Have your kids make home made Valentine’s and feature them on the tree. And, don’t forget to crown the tree with a tree topper like a red rose or cupid.

 

Valentine’s Day is for everyone young and old. You don’t have to be in love, you only have to be in love with love, the tenet of a hopeless romantic. Valentine’s Day is quintessential female porn.
