It doesn’t matter how long your relationship is – a few days or an eternity. A loved one and a romantic atmosphere that will help you forget about worries.
Create romantic Valentines Day atmosphere by using symbols of love
In decorating your home, use traditional symbols associated with the holiday of love- hearts, cupids, valentines. The heart is the main symbol of Valentine’s Day, and decorating the house with various hearts is a pleasure. The colors are also classic – red, pink, white and black. There are many options for decorating a house with hearts.
You can decorate with heart shaped balloons, make a Valentine’s Day garland, draw hearts on the windows or on the bathroom mirror or cut out an “I love you” confession and hang it in your bedroom.
Valentine’s day cards are another symbol of this holiday. They express our feelings and there is no better way to start the day with a loving message. You can buy a card or make it yourself.
Light is a magical tool for creating the right mood in your home. Forget about bright lamps this evening. You can use many light sources at once, but dim them with a dimmer, turn them against the wall or cover them with something translucent.
Colored light also fits into the mood of this holiday. A light bulb that can be adjusted to the desired color will come in handy. Choose red, pink, purple tones. You can easily change the color of your light by using a colored paper shade.
Do not forget about candles. They are one of the most romantic accessories. The flickering flame of a candle, its delicate aroma, will give a feeling of harmony and warmth. Jasmine, rose, bergamot, cinnamon are considered suitable aromas. The aromas of Neroli, Geranium, Sandalwood are believed to be erotic.
Decorative pillows have long occupied a special place in creating a cozy and stylish interior. You don’t have to buy a hundred pillows. A few small or large ones with cool love inscriptions or drawings are enough. If you are a fan of craft projects you can sew special covers and the sofa pillows will become not only a home decor but also a wonderful gift.
Valentine’s Day table setting
February 14th is the perfect day to set the table beautifully! Beautiful thematic tableware, cutlery and table textiles will add to the romantic atmosphere. Heart shaped plates, cute inscriptions on mugs, red lace, rolled napkins with attached valentines, candles in graceful candlesticks, flowers in a vase – the options are numerous!
There is no doubt that there should be flowers on our magically decorated table! Roses are the all-time classic flower for Valentine’s Day. Red, pink or white roses – they always speak of love, passion and devotion. Of course, you can choose any other flower that your partner loves – hyacinths, daffodils, lilies, etc.
Choose your favorite colors or essential oil blends. You can use incense sticks, but remember that they often have an overly artificial smell. If you want to seduce, do not forget to buy aphrodisiacs in advance.
Choose pleasant, light and romantic music. Turn it on quietly – let it sound against the background of your conversation.
Bathroom with roses
You do not have to spend a romantic evening at a table or on a sofa. For example, an experiment with a rose-scented bath under candles will be remembered for a long time.
Decorate the bedroom
The culmination of the evening can be a romantically decorated bedroom, especially if you try to keep your loved one out of this room for as long as possible. To decorate the room, you can use white and red bedding and the timeless classics – rose petals.
