With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, you may be focused on how to decorate with ease and flair. You might not think that you can decorate for this most romantic holiday without spending a fortune, but it doesn’t have to be that involved. There are a few design cues that you can follow which will help you to create the perfect ambiance without breaking the bank — and they set the tone perfectly!
If you’re decorating with kids or trying to create a fun Valentine’s Day vibe then it’s all about using color and the best representation of the holiday such as hearts. If you’re trying to create a truly romantic room then you may want to opt for something like candles. You may combine the two, but in the end you want to focus on a few key elements. You can decorate with a wonderful flair that really puts you in the Valentine’s mindset, and some of these things you can use over again too. This is a fun way of decorating that will put a smile on everyone’s face!
Here are some great decorating ideas that help to capture what Valentine’s Day is all about, and they are all very much within your grasp.
1. Candles and Flowers Everywhere: You are literally filling the room with various types of flowers and candles to make a really cool setting. All different colors, heights, and types of candles and some scent to really appeal to every sense. Then the flowers, oh the flowers everywhere — petals, free standing, in a vase, and every color that you can imagine.
This gives that wow factor and it only takes two main elements to make it work. You will absolutely love what this does to create the perfect environment, and it all centers around the simple but well executed candles and flowers in a room.
2. Framed Love Letters and Pictures: Simply take love letters that the two of you have written to each other over time and put them into frames. Then do the same with pictures of you over the years, and this can even include the whole family.
This is an homage to who you are as a couple and how far you’ve come. It’s really sweet and romantic and shows how much your relationship has advanced over time. A very easy decoration to pull off that will speak volumes to the recipients.
3. Red, White, and Pink Everywhere: All you have to do is go with a color scheme here and then let it work for you. Get flowers in red, pink, and white, as well as candles. Heart decorations, cute teddy bears, signs, banners, framed pictures, and everything has to be within that red, pink, and white motif. You can even set up candies around the room that are in this color scheme, as well as deserts. Carry it out to the meal that keeps with the color scheme, and it will show how much work you put into it.
4. Hearts Everywhere The Eye Can See: Cut out heart banners and simple heart decorations out of construction paper. Get heart shaped cookie cutters to shape the food into. Heart cards, vases, and little decorations that you can tack onto everything in the house make for a perfect and simple idea. You just take this one idea which is what Valentine’s Day is all about, and then run with it in a fun and well executed way.
