When roses chocolates and romantic cards just don’t cut it, subtle Valentine’s Day decorations around your home are the way to go.
We’re not saying you should go to the lengths of the festive season, but simple romantic décor can really liven up your home for the big day. Here are some helpful hints and tips from our experts:
In the middle of February, we can all use a touch of spring. Roses are the go to flower of choice on Valentine’s Day, but if you want something to add to the décor of your home, a soft pink selection from your local florists could add a stylish alternative to the traditional red rose.
For art aficionados giving frames a refresh or for simply adding some long-overdue décor to bare walls, there are plenty of love-themed pieces around to style your home for the season. Graphic art prints are as popular as ever and available from shops all over the country.
If you want to go the extra mile, why don’t you purchase a set of novelty Valentine’s Day cushions? Or better yet, why not make your own? It could be a fun, romantic craft activity to do as a couple!
Decorate your shelves
Ornaments of St Valentine, letters spelling out LOVE, cushions, artwork, roses…. They can all be used to add the spirit of Valentine’s Day into your home, in a nice subtle way.
Decorate your dining table
If you’re cooking for a loved one on Valentine’s Day, why don’t you go the extra mile and decorate your dining table? A rose centre piece will really brighten up your tablescape, and some Valentine’s napkins will take it to a whole new level.
These are just a few tips to help you get started, but we would also encourage you to use your imagination. You know your partner better than anyone, so make sure you think of way to decorate your home in a way that they’ll like this Valentine’s Day – don’t blame us if they don’t like it!
