It’s Valentine’s Day on Friday – have you got anything special planned yet? Well if you haven’t, then we’ve got just the ticket. This year, rather than going out and spending a fortune (not that your loved one isn’t worth it of course – some couples have to live to a budget though), why not treat your loved one to a night in. That might not sound like your idea of romance, but you’d be surprised at just how special you can make the day, with a bit of décor here, and some candles there. Read on for some fabulous ideas for a stay-at-home Valentine’s Day this Friday.
Jar of hearts
Don’t panic, we’re not about to serenade you. We found this pretty Valentine’s Day décor idea on digsdigs.com. This person seems to have thought of everything – there’s the iconic red and pink colour theme, heart garlands and a heart shaped wreath, red candles and matching flowers, and our personal favourite – jars of heart shaped sweets. How could your loved one fail to smile at this?
Fill a vase with flowers
There’s nothing technically wrong with a dozen red roses – after all, they’re the most bought flowers on Valentine’s Day. But how about this year, you buy something a little better-thought out? We absolutely love these parrot tulips, seen on housebeautiful.com. They are the ideal flowers to arrange in a pitcher-style vase. You don’t have to choose white – some of the most beautiful flowers we’ve received have been red tulips. So try something different with your flowers this year – you can guarantee she’ll notice (for all the right reasons).
Scatter some petals
If you’ve overdone the bunch of flowers gift, here’s a great alternative. We saw this romantic love heart idea on marthastewart.com. We love how it still incorporates flowers but in a thoughtful way. You should arrange the petals somewhere prominent, where your loved one will spot them as soon as they walk into the room – watch their face light up.
Set a romantic table
The final step to your romantic night in is to lay the table before your other half arrives home. We love this pretty vintage style table decoration, seen on Pinterest.com. Choose soft pink coloured china in a whimsical pattern, and place paper love heart shaped napkins on top. Decorate the table with coordinating flowers, and scatter some confetti around. Finally, if you want to continue the pink theme further, choose only pink food and pink coloured drinks. It’s as simple as that.
