During the Christmas season I shared some beautiful ornaments from Everthine Home. When they asked if I would feature for them again for Valentine’s Day I couldn’t wait to browse their collection. If you follow me on Instagram you know I love any type of garland. So, this of course caught my eye and I just had to have it. Below are three different ways I decorated with it in my home. And I can’t wait to share with you what the garland says and how you can get some!
I think I like it over the doorway even better! Remember the Christmas garland I made with the Everthine Home garland chain? If you want to peek it is here.
Each heart has one of the Characteristics of love found in 1 Corinithians 13
Patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
Now my third and favorite way to use this garland is to take a heart down for each place setting around your table.I set them out for my Valentine’s Tablescape. They open like a card. There is a story about what the characteristic looks like, and then a story about someone who practiced that act of love. It continues on the back of the heart and ends with a prayer to read.
I can not wait to have each of my family members read the heart at their place setting. I imagine it to be such a special family time. I always leave out a valentine card and some sort of small gift for my family, but we have never had traditions around Valentine’s Day besides that. I am looking forward to starting this new tradition.
If your children can’t read yet, what a great idea it would be to read it to them and discuss the story. What a beautiful way to teach your children what real love from God looks like.
