Valentine’s day can be a lot of pinks, purples and well glitter! I don’t know about you but my boys aren’t so into that. But I sure do love them! So I am here to show you how I merged some classic valentine decor with a masculine touch.
Of course I used some reds because I think red is pretty gender nuetral. I also love to reuse items from one season/ holiday to the next. My red ruby glass dishes and glassware were used as my base. To give a little splash of pizzazz I used some gold chargers. You can find these at the dollar store or I have even found them at the local thrift stores.
Adding in natural pieces also lends itself to a more manly look. I found this table runner on clearance at Target and the wood slice at Ross. Two vesrsitile pieces I can use year round. I accented the table with this leaf garland. When I went looking for it at Hobby Lobby the greenery was not on sale that week so I had to get creative to figure out another option. No time to try another store so I searched the store and found in the bridal section this greenery on sale 50% off! Again another item that can be used anytime.
To really give it the masculine look I added faux leather. Cut a few strips as my napkin “rings”, a few cut out hearts as confetti throughout the table and the rest I simply draped inside a square glass vase. Simple geometric shapes is a better way to go for this look. The last element is the “happy valentine’s day ” wood cut out which I found last year in the Target dollar spot. One of my favorite places to shop!
I hope this gave you a little inspiration on how to make your little men or your big man feel thought of on Valentine’s day. I don’t think you need a special day to tell someone that you love them but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
Hope you enjoyed this and it inspired you to show those boys some love. Have a happy love day! Love on all those who are in your life.
Love, Jamie @turquoisebungalow
