Valentines Inspired Decor Ideas
Whether you're looking to surprise special someone this year or whether this Valentines may simply more of a ' 'Galentines Day', why not get in the mood to decorate? It's no Christmas, but Valentines is definitely an excuse to have a bit of fun with your decor and create a Romantic environment for your special someone. Don't fear singletons, even if you're just having a regular night in with a friend, why not incorporate some of these decor tips to sit in the background of your night of rom-coms, wine and chocolate.
DECOR IDEA ONE : CANDLES
An obvious one, but nothing creates a romantic mood more than candles. Whether it's tea lights, pillar candles or tapered candles, add a few around your home (safely, we may add) to create a romantic atmosphere. If you're limited on budget or time, a single tea light on your dinner table will suffice.
DECOR IDEA TWO : TABLEWARE
If you're planning a dinner in, nothing says 'romantic evening in' than a specially laid table setting. Instead of your regular plate and cutlery, think about adding in a wine glass, water glass, place mat, side plate, serving bowls and main table plate for a layered setting. Try mixing patterns, colours and textures (e.g. ceramic, porcelain, glass) for maximum impact.
DECOR IDEA THREE: FLOWERS
Nothing says Valentines more than a lovely bunch of flowers. Try opting for flowers with pink and red hues to represent Valentines day and interweave them with lots of green foliage (e.g. eucalyptus) for a bushy bouquet that you can disect and dot around your home in multiple vases. A top tip for choosing flowers, is when you get home take the cellophane wrap of immediately, as these cause the flowers to 'sweat' and can decrease their life-span due to bacteria that grows in the warmer temperature.
