Valentine's Mantel | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

We're all loved up here at OneandSeventy.

After almost 23 years together, Beloved and I rarely exchange gifts and cards these days, but we do like to celebrate Valentine's Day. Well let's face it, we don't need much of an excuse to whip up a (preferably calorific) dinner, crack open a bottle of wine and sit at the table putting the world to rights!

This year, we have even more reason to celebrate. Our only son and his gorgeous girlie have chosen the most romantic day of the year to walk down the aisle. Squeaaaaaal! My little boy is all grown up and I'll soon be the mother of a married man. Feel old? Moi?

In honour of their impending nuptials, it seemed only fitting that Number 1 and his Bride take centre stage on this year's Valentine's Mantel.

Autumn Mantel by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

With each turn of the yearly wheel comes a great swathe of seasonal decorating ideas. Pinterest or Instagram users cannot fail to have noticed all the wonderful images of Autumn's influence in the home.

If you've been following along with my ramblings, you'll know that I like to decorate my mantel for each of the ancient festivals, such as Ostara (Easter) and Samhain (Hallowe'en).

But since launching The World of Suzy Homemaker and my ever-increasing use of the word "pretty" (!), I've also had a hankering for updating my mantel with the Seasons.

Even more so since my recent fireplace surround and mantel makeover!
