Romantic Valentine’s Day Mantel

One of my very favorite things about our new place is the amazing white brick fireplace and mantel. Not that I didn’t love the faux-mantel shelf in our Burbank apartment, but it is beyond thrilling for me to have a few square feet of space I can decorate and redecorate to my heart’s content!

Once we took down the Christmas decorations, I wanted to create a mantel that was of a more romantic sentiment in honor of our anniversary in January, as well as Valentine’s Day this week. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you already got a sneak peek of the final Valentine’s mantel, but here it is in all of its lovey-dovey glory! :)

The You & Me banner came from our wedding decor!

For our first non-Christmas mantel in the new place, I would say it’s not too shabby! I am going to be a maniac with this thing…! :)

    This mantel looks so beautiful! I love it all, but the mirror is my favorite part. You should share it over at the Motivational Monday link party I host with 7 other wonderful bloggers. We’d love to see what you’ve been up to lately! http://makingitinthemitten.blogspot.com/2015/02/motivational-monday-february-8th.html

    So cute! I’ve been in a mantle rut since Christmas. I love the fresh greenery :-)

      Thank you Heather! I couldn’t quite kick Christmas, so I had to keep a little greenery up there to make it still feel winter-y! ;)

    I love your mantle and being able to use things you already have but in a different way. There is also that subtle pop of color in the banner. Thank you for sharing at Motivational Monday Link Party! Hope to see you again Sunday night.
