Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. So take a bit out of your day to decorate the house with lots and lots of love. Even though you show your loved one how much you care throughout the whole year, it is nice to have one day to go over the top.
It can be a bit overwhelming decorating for something like Valentine’s Day. What do you do and where do you even start? Luckily, we have a few tips to decorate the important rooms of the house to help get you going.
Let’s start with the bedroom because it might be one of the most significant rooms to decorate in the house (next to the dining room). Depending on you and your spouse, you might want simple, elegant decorations. Or maybe you are looking for more out-there type decorations.
Either way, start with some pink and red roses. Lay some petals on the bed in a heart shape and scatter throughout the room. Light a few candles to give the place that romantic feeling. Have a little table (even the nightstand would do) to set up with some of your favorite wine and two glasses to share.
The Dining Room
You’ll spend a lot of time in this room as you munch away at your delicious Valentine’s supper. Set out your best china for the occasion. Even if you have napkins already, go out and get special ones for this meal. Bright red napkins will add a nice pop of color to the table.
Don’t forget Valentine’s Day flowers. Flowers are the perfect decoration for the day of love. Arrange red, pink and maybe a few white flowers to go as the table’s centerpiece. Add a touch of greenery to the table for a classic and timeless look.
If you can, have the lights dimmed. Low lighting helps set a romantic atmosphere. If your lights don’t work that way, bring out lots of candles. Relying on the flame to light the room, how much more romantic can it get?
The Living Room
Whether you plan to relax on the couch together and watch your favorite flick or cuddle up by the fireplace and stare into each other’s eyes, the living room needs a touch of romance as well. Make your living room as cuddly as possible, so start with low lighting. If you have a fireplace, rely on the flame to light the room and keep you warm. Otherwise, be creative and make your own romantic candles.
Set up little heart shape decorations around the room. If you are feeling creative, try making your own framed decoration to hang on the wall. Of course, more flowers throughout the room will always help.
So when in doubt this Valentine’s Day, decorate the house with flowers, candles and a whole lot of love. Stay within the color scheme of pink (gratitude, appreciation) and reds (passion, love). Even the littlest amount of decorating is sure to show your loved one how much you care. Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
