The Perfect Valentine Tree!?!?!?!

As you can see..... I'm ready for another holiday. I was soooo disappointed at having to remove my Christmas tree, that I procrastinated, and finally the perfect idea came to me...... WHY NOT HAVE A VALENTINE TREE?

My sister caught the decorating fever and found the perfect 4 foot white (leftover Christmas) Tree and my brother just happened to have multicolored lights on a white cord, that he had purchased mistakenly. After rummaging through my Christmas items, I found the perfect ornaments and added them to the tree. There are glass strawberries dipped in chocolate, pink and red cloth strawberries and of course glass hearts!

And what tree would be complete without presents??? Not mine!!!! Of course, gifts are under the tree, carefully wrapped in White paper with red bows!! A wine bottle with lights complete with a romantic phrase attached to it (a gift from a crafty friend) sits near the base of the tree.

Family and friends have really enjoyed or at least tolerated having to see my tree!! And for all those men out there... I'll have you know that my husband never uttered one complaint as he patiently adjusted the lights to make them look perfect! AND he has it twinkling everyday when I come home from work. I'm sure there is a gift under there for him!!

Although a Valentine Tree may not be for everyone, it certainly brightens up our house!! And made my holiday spirit last a little longer. So to everyone, Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Creating... and stay tuned for my Easter Tree!!!
