Valentine’s Day display pops up in San Antonio


Thelma Reyes has a few storage rooms dedicated to her holiday decor because at her home on the south side of town, there’s always a reason to party.

Along with her husband Robert, Thelma fills her one-acre lot with an annual holiday show. When COVID hampered Halloween celebrations, the Reyes created a candy sprout. When Fiesta was canceled in 2020, the duo decorated their patio and won KSAT12’s Porch Parade. This Valentine’s Day, high school sweethearts are celebrating love with their first-ever Cupid-inspired exhibit.

“Halloween is a big event at home, we get 500-600 kids, as we couldn’t do face-to-face, we did a candy photo shoot,” Thelma says.

San Antonians natives do it to spread joy, and while they won’t be serving up treats this holiday, they’ve put together a perfect display for Valentine’s Day. Her sister-in-law is spreading the news on Facebook. His neighbor posted it on Nextdoor.

“It brings a little bit of joy and happiness to the kids in the neighborhood and beyond,” Thelma said, noting that the coverage of the decorations tends to draw San Antonians from all over town to their home at 134 E. Villaret.

A pink-purple inflatable rainbow anchors the backdrop with an inflatable pup and a pair of lips framing the room that sits inside a picket fence where one family is allowed to enter per visit. A wrought iron bench surrounded by red cherubs is the finishing touch.

Les Reyes will open the exhibition to visitors on Sunday February 13 and Monday February 14 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.; families are asked to enter one at a time, stay a maximum of 15 minutes and bring their own camera.

Still, Thelma couldn’t let the rest of her yard stay bare — the rest of the area is adorned with Valentine’s Day-inspired gnome cutouts.

“It’s an opportunity for families to come together and spread some happiness in the community,” says Thelma.
