Valentine Bed

I was looking through some old photos & came across one from a few Valentine's Days ago. This is an idea you could adapt in a number of different ways, but the basic idea is to type or write out a list of different reasons why you love someone, and then stick them to paper hearts which you can hang places.


At the time, we had a bed with a frame that worked perfectly:

Talia was little when I did this, so her main role was to pass me pieces of string (and she was quite happy with the task). Now, we could make this Valentine surprise from her, for Daddy, and she could be part of coming up with the reasons, cutting out the hearts, maybe decorating them, or drawing pictures of things she loves.

Have fun with this one- if anyone does it, let me know & I'd love to see pictures! :)

Edited to add a similar idea that I love- having an"appreciation day" for someone you love, and using balloons with notes around the house.

  1. Ooo, I remember this when you did it. It's been in the back of my mind for years now :) I was thinking you should also surprise Talia and do it for her, maybe stick hearts to the wall around her bed or something. Fun to wake up to that. I don't seem to be able to do anything right now with a baby who insists on being held after 8 pm, but we'll see if I can manage :)
