Go all out on the lighting and by this, we don’t mean turn all the lights on! Nothing works better than candles when it comes to a romantic setting. Liberally use candles and tea lights all around your house to create a soft, dreamy feel. For a whimsical touch, place some fairy lights in a jar and use this as a centrepiece on your dinner table. Brownie points if you add scented candles!
Almost any celebration is incomplete without flowers and for Valentine’s Day, this element is key. Don’t hold back on the florals. Think beyond simply filling the space with floral arrangements or bouquets, which may sometimes turn out to be quite disjointed or jarring. Instead, fill a bowl with flowers and tea light candles, or scatter petals across the dinner table or the bed to create a subtle yet inviting feel. You can also have a bunch of your (or your partner's) favourite flowers arranged beautifully as a centrepiece.
Don’t get yourself so busy planning the decor that you forget one of the most important elements - the food! You may wish to order in or surprise your partner by cooking an elaborate meal for them. Whatever you choose to do, keep it simple and fuss-free. Pizza and wine work just fine; what matters is that you and your partner enjoy the evening together.
With a clean home, decor in place and a bottle of bubbles waiting to be popped, you’re nearly ready to spend a beautiful evening with your loved one, but not before a couple of finishing touches are added. Plan a playlist in advance that works with the mood of the evening. If you are gifting presents and want to do something fun, plan a treasure hunt for your partner with gifts hidden around the house to make your evening a memorable one!
