Simple DIY Valentine's Decor Ideas

Who doesn't love to decorate even a small corner of your home for Valentine's Day? It's pretty simple and inexpensive, with so many things around that are already red or pink, and putting them together to create a festive little celebration of the day of love.

Here are a few photos we hope will inspire you to create your own Valentine's decor.

We love this sweet dessert table. Perfect for about 8-10 guests, there is a small cutting cake, then a great assortment of cookies, Rumchata shots, truffles, rice pudding, and cupcakes. While it'd be a bit time-consuming, how about all of those envelopes creating the backdrop for the dessert table?

L-O-V-E Giant Scrabble Tiles -- so easy. Home Depot will Cut wood into 4" squares upon request, then just paint on the letters (and tile points number) of your choosing! We love these for other holidays as well.

Chipboard Letters from Hobby Lobby, painted with a red base and white vine design, stand up for love on this tablescape. To get the same thickness these letters have, glue together two or three of the chipboard letters together to make a thicker letter. The vase is filled with red M&Ms and topped with red carnations. This would also look great made with red marbles or crystals as the vase filler.

We found these twine-wrapped candles on a fun blog, Crafty Scrappy Happy.

Pretty Pinks! Submerges silk flowers of pink tulips, orchids, and cherry blossoms bring an elegant element to decorating for Valentine's Day.

Floating fresh cranberries topped with dyed carnations in clear water glasses are a great way to brighten up a corner with this holiday spirit. A grouping of 6-8 of these would be great for a centerpiece as well.

A 12" x 12" square of scrapbooking paper is a festive placemat for your Valentine's party table.

Cleaning a Pack-n-Play

My mommy friends often ask me how to clean a Pack-n-Play. Likely because my toddler is all about making the biggest messes possible. After a few rounds of taking a damp rag to it like the manual suggests (HA), I thought, there has to be a more effective way to do this. Look at that dingy grossness:

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …
