Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a formal affair — why not ring in the day by snuggling up with your sweetheart on the couch, comfortably wrapped in blush-hued pillows and soft blankets?
HEART-ADORNED GOODIE BAGS
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with a group? Make adorably on-theme goodie bags, decorated with sparkling hearts and packed with pink-and-red treats.
SENTIMENTAL FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
Nothing says “I love you,” like a beautifully set table, complete with thoughtful floral arrangements. And those heart-shaped succulents? Too perfect for words.
Swathe your Valentine’s celebration in sheer panels of pastel drapery, to add a little mystique to the day. We also love the stylish, thematic wreaths suspended in the folds of fabric.
Embrace soft and romantic design by employing sweet floral textiles on and around your Valentine’s table. Here, the carefully cross-stitched tapestry is a particularly lovely touch.
Lend your Valentine’s Daytablescape an air of traditional elegance and playful spirit with rose petal pink candles. It’s a subtle but effective decor trick to, ahem, melt over.
A bit of white tulle lends whimsy and romance to any decor setting. Here, a vignette with a small vase of roses, traditional clocks and a place setting is elegantly draped with tulle.
Dress up geometric cookies with white frosting and edible flowersfor a show-stopping treat bound to give your hon butterflies. Besides — why give flowers for a vase when you can give flowers to eat?
Rose petal pink and hot pink honeycomb lanterns lend any vignette or Valentine’s Day party a sense of lighthearted buoyancy. Pair with matching flowers to continue the color palette.
Skip the hot pink paper napkins and instead bring out your beautiful linens. These pastel pink floral napkins are an understated yet elegant accent for a romantic holiday.
“I LOVE YOU MORE THAN PIZZA” SIGN
Granted, “pizza” can be replaced with just about anything here — cookies, cheese or perhaps donuts. The point is, your loved one will appreciate the cheeky nod to a love that’s bigger than your appetite for your favorite food.
FLORAL NAKED CAKE
Adorn a naked cake with large flowers to create a vignette of overindulgence and sweetness. Pair with a simple white cake stand (you can use matching ones to hold vases with the same flowers) for a crisp, uniform look.
MAKE PUNCH WITH A PRETTY SIDE
Serve your loved one (or party guests) a tasty fruit punch adorned with red berries. Here, the punch is paired with “xoxo” napkins and heart-shaped doilies.
PINK MACARONS AND BERRIES
One of the loveliest aspects of Valentine’s Day (besides celebrating the love in your life, of course) is that the holiday’s colors make it easy for food to double as themed decor. Here, raspberries sprinkled around pink pomegranate macarons make for a treat that’s appealing to the eyes and the tastebuds.
A dozen roses is the tradition, but just one or two blooms in a small vase can be equally charming (and saves space on a crowded dinner table!). Here, peach rosessituated in a vase on stacked books make for a charming centerpiece.
Sprinkle candied rose petals on a plain white cake for your most elegant Valentine’s Day affair — the effortless beauty of this simple dessert is enough to make anyone swoon.
ADD A SMOOCH
Candy lips make a playful addition to drink sticks, especially when paired with splashy pink coasters. Give your a date smooch — and your drink a brush of decor — by sliding gummy lips onto a wooden drink stick.
DOUBLE-TIERED SERVING TRAYS
Infuse your Valentine’s Day with a bit of gilded glamour by serving treats on your two-tiered platters. Scatter a few branches of greenery around your treats for added charm.
You don’t have to give up your neutral color palette during this romantic time of year. The metal heart sculpture in this Nashville home is just as Valentine’s Day-appropriate as any garish red & pink accessories.
Take those construction paper hearts to the next level with this geometric heart DIY. The wall decor looks super hip, but still Valentine’s Day appropriate, hung directly on a neutral wall. (If you’re not ready to commit to something this big, you could always make a mini framed version instead.)
You don’t need an over-the-top wreath stuffed to the brim with red and pink flowers to bring the V-day spirit to your front door. This does the trick just fine without any overly romantic kitsch.
If you’ve been itching to break out a cliche “live, laugh, love” art print, now’s the one time you can get away with it. Integrating the art into a centerpiece is a cinch to do and makes for a fun take on romantic decorating.
There’s no need to go overboard with lovey dovey decorations, as proves with this understated tablescape. A few simple pops of light pink and a simple bouquet of white roses is all you need to set the mood for a romantic dinner.
Tiny locket-style hearts become a statement piece of art when suspended in mini frames, like these at actress Beth Riesgraf’s home. They’re perfect for Valentine’s Day, but understated enough that you could keep them up all year long.
Real flowers are beautiful, of course, and one of the easiest ways to add a little romance to your space. But these may be even more lovely. The vintage-inspired pink glass pairs perfectly with the gilded base to create a timeless look.
