Hey guys! It’s Claire from Claire Brody Designs, and I’m back to share another DIY idea and a round-up of some really cute last minute Valentine’s Day ideas.
Before I jump into my DIY Valentine’s Day garland, I thought I would share a couple links to some great Valentine’s Day ideas that we found in Blogland.
For last minute Valentine’s Day cocktail ideas, Sugar and Charm has pulled together and fantastic collection of yummy champagne cocktail recipes:

Today I’m sharing a fun and easy way to add some Valentine’s decor to your table or party with this rose garland:
Last weekend I attended a Bachelorette party and since it was in Austin (where I live), I was in charge of providing the flowers. I went with hot pink roses and tulips to go with the Kate Spade inspired theme. It was all super cute, and I snuck the blooms back to my house after the weekend.
I wanted to come up with a way to repurpose the flowers after the party. They were still in okay shape, but I wanted to give them a second chance if you know what I’m sayin. I found this banner in my craft box and decided to make a DIY flower banner. With Valentine’s Day coming up (tomorrow, what?!) I thought some of you might have left over blooms after the holiday. This project took me about 5 minutes and really brightened our apartment!
As I mentioned, I already had the banner (found it at Target), but it could also be made with string and card stock paper.
First I cut the stems of the roses to about 3″.
I used Washi tape to attach a rose to each flag.
I got a little carried away. I blame Pinterest for attaching a flower banner to the back of our chair.
I had left over flowers after the banner so I put together mini bouquets. I used a napkin to wrap them up and taped a tag to the front. These would be so cute to hand out to friends!
I hope this inspires you to give your Valentine’s flowers a second life!!
