Let the decorating begin!

My niece's bridal shower is coming up this weekend and I have been busy adding little Valentine touches to our home. I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day, so this is new for me, but I've decided that I love it and probably will decorate (at least a little bit) every year from now on.
.
This morning the sun was shining through the back door and onto these hearts I made and hung in our entry way last weekend. The photos don't really do them justice -- they're rather magical if I do say so myself.


PS: These hearts were made with a 1"x 12" strip of paper, folded in the middle and glued together with a piece of sewing thread sandwiched in for hanging.

Lovely little decorations - rather like those nice Christmas ones but so pretty arranged as hanging sets! I hope you and your niece have a lovely party (that's what a Bridal Shower is, right?)
Happy Valentine's weekend!

Very cute! I hope we see photos from the event - I'm sure you'll do a fantastic job! You have a very lucky niece!
And thanks again for the great giveaway! They came this morning in the middle of a blizzard. I posted on it this morning. They are as cute in person as they are in the photos!
Thanks!
Best,
