Valentine Mantel

Hello everyone,
Red and White decor is so refreshing to see after my dreary and boring January mantel. I decorated the fireplace mantel with a little Red, White and Green. And
I decided to use plates this year on the mantel for monthly inspiration. Each month I would like to change the plates out to express the season. This month is a Valentine theme.
I love my square boxwood wreath decorated with a red ribbon and two red cyclamen plants as the centerpiece.
During a shopping trip to Macy's after Christmas I found these white felt hearts trimmed in Red for one dollar each. With some satin ribbon and little red clothes pins I have a bunting or banner for Valentine's Day. Simple and fun to make. 
Just enough  decor for My Cozy Corner.
The Before Photo of the mantel is Here.  It was Christmas time and featured at Katherine's Corner. You can also see my Christmas Banner too. 
I have several different salad plates I've collected to set my tea time tablescapes. And I think this is going to be fun to change the plates, candles, center decor every few months. I will need to change the colored ribbon on the wreath from time to  time. We will see if this works out for an easy mantel display during the year of 2015.
As soon as I spotted these cute heart ornaments my heart skipped a beat. I knew the minute I saw them exactly what I was going to do with them.
The heart plates are a set of four and I found them at Tuesday Morning when I worked there a few years ago. I love Tuesday Morning. They have the cutest stuff and at great prices too.

Brass and Gold goes so well with our new living room furniture. 
I love a mosaic to recap my post. I hope you love them too.
Have a wonderful weekend. 
Thank you so much for visiting and Happy Valentine's Day.
