Some plan for a vacation, some pamper their significant others with Valentine flowers and gifts while some pal for romantic dinner nights. But why not you celebrate this valentine at a place where you spend most of your time that is your home. Bring the same excitement of romance and love to your home especially when you are running short on time. Celebrating love at home is not an outdated trend in fact with some tweaks and tricks, you can make an awesome Valentine’s day celebration at home. Let’s have a look at the following list where you can make your home look like a romantic place straight from a movie set.
Add a pinch of Red:
Red and Love goes hand in hand. Well, here we are not talking about a bunch of 12 red roses, though that is a fairly romantic point but there are zillion of other ways where you can add red to your decor. Think of white balloons and red lipstick. Yes, just kiss the balloons all over and tie them in the corners of your room.
You can also make heart-shaped felt arrows in red and white. Arrange them in a jar and place them on an end table. You just need to think out of the box and you’ll see there are many possibilities to accommodate red in your classic arrangement.
A picture speaks a thousand words:
Photos are always special. They are the reminders of all the happy moments you spent with your partner. So think of all those impromptu moments that you find adorable and make a collage of them. You can also make a monochrome of all the candid moments of your partner and frame them on a wall.Just keep one frame blank and at the end of the date, click one more picture as a happy reminder of the perfect day.
Arrange for the perfect fragrance for romance:
Who would not love to walk in a room filled with the sweet aroma of fresh and mild flowers. Scented candles and flowers will definitely set the mood for an evening of romance. The charming glow of the candles and subtle aroma of flowers are the perfect mood setter that will charm your partner. Just place them at strategic places and enjoy your evening.
Play with the lights:
Lights play a very important role in setting a serene and mysterious ambience. If you have nothing to arrange then just dimming the lights will get you halfway there in the romance quotient. Or you can turn off all the lights and illuminate your home with candles.
Food: A direct way to your partner’s heart
Don’t spend hours in cooking your partner’s favorite food in kitchen and end up being tired. Rather spend this time in getting dressed for the perfect evening. Instead of cooking, order a meal for two from your partner’s favorite restaurant and bake a dessert by yourself. Yes, bake a cake of his favorite flavour and serve it as the surprising element after your dinner.
Most importantly, Don’t forget about yourself. Amidst the entire chaos of arranging the romance at home, get sometime to indulge in pampering yourself. Grab a nice red-dress to woo your man and get the party started.
