Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Whether you’re planning to celebrate with your sweetheart or simply enjoy a romantic evening at home, there are plenty of ways to add a little romance to your life. We have put together some ideas on ways to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day.
Add pops of red
One of the simplest ways to bring Valentine’s Day to your home is by adding a pop of red. Igniting feelings of passion and love, red is symbolic of Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to achieve. Simply add red candles, dinner ware, banners and other decorations to really tap into the Valentine’s Day theme.
Display candy or chocolates
There’s no doubt that candy and chocolate make great Valentine’s Day gifts. However, they can also be used as decoration. Simply place wrapped chocolates in a glass bowl and maybe add some red or pink shredded paper. Fill up glass jars with love heart candies for a sweet display. This is an inexpensive way to add to your Valentine’s Day décor and you get to enjoy eating them later!
Create flower arrangements
Red roses are a staple when it comes to Valentine’s Day bouquets, but why not try a unique arrangement full of Spring blooms instead. Trade in bold reds for soft pinks. Carnations, peonies and gardenias are a great choice and will create a romantic, delicate arrangement.
Get creative and make your own decorations. From sentimental garlands to loved-up banners, floral arrangements to heart shaped wreaths, there are many easy DIY decorations you can create to showcase Valentine’s Day throughout your home. This is also a fun activity you can do with your significant other or your little Valentines. Find more fantastic DIY decorations here.
Hang small signs
Make small, love inspired signs and hang them around your home. From paper cut-outs to engraved wood, this is an inexpensive way to spread the love. Write messages of love to your chosen one or a Valentine’s Day inspired quote.
Set the mood with candles
Nothing says romance like a candlelit dinner. Use red candles and get creative with your display. Craft your own candle holder or centrepiece for a personal touch that will mean a great deal more. Arrange tealights to fill up the space on a table or mantel piece for a romantic ambience.
