If you love celebrating love, then Valentine's Day is probably one of your favourite times of the year. On this day, we celebrate the special relationships we share with friends, family, and significant others. We shower loved ones with greeting cards, luxury chocolates, and dozens of red, pink, and white flowers.
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party for friends, cooking an intimate meal for two, or just relaxing at home in your pyjamas. Adorn yourself and your space in all things floral, and why not add a touch of pink.
One of our favourite ways to prepare for the holiday is by decorating with all sorts of Valentine's Day decorations. From flower displays that you can enjoy privately - to a gorgeous table setting that will welcome guests into your home. Valentine’s Day decor adds a striking pop of colour to the grey days of winter.
We've created a list of our favourite sweet yet stylish Valentine's Day decor ideas that will help you share the love with everyone who enters your home. Add a little love to your home with these 4 basic and beautiful ways to decorate for Valentine’s Day. A few quick and inexpensive touches, and you’ll be all ready to celebrate!
UNIQUE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS

Few holidays drum up as many opinions as Valentine's Day. However, in the middle of February, we can all use a dose of spring. Bypass the expensive and cliché dozen roses in place of a soft pink arrangement from your local florist.
When it comes to Valentine's Day, the more flowers the better. We love peonies, gardenias, anthurium, and pampas for a billowy, delicate-looking arrangement. Super pink with touches of red and a combination of textures enough to make anyone blush.
Used as a centrepiece for a dinner party or to add a pop of pink to the kitchen counter, a rosy bouquet adds Valentine’s Day charm to the space. And once your flower arrangement better days are behind them, bind the flowers together and hang them upside down. In a couple weeks, you’ll have a beautiful dried bouquet.
PLUSH TABLE SETTING

Nothing says I love you like a beautifully set table. Just because you're hosting a Valentine's Day dinner doesn't mean you need to buy all new tableware. Instead, think about the smaller details.
You don't have to go bold with vibrant reds because it's Valentine's Day. Instead, keep a soft, pastel colour palette for a more intimate dinner. Or opt for a moody Valentine's Day theme, incorporating rich purple flowers like morning glories or orchids.
To make your table setting instantly romantic, include a centrepiece vase filled with plenty of large flowers and a loose linen tablecloth as an effortlessly elegant and sexy backdrop. Sprinkle in some candles, and give the tablescape a touch of glam with metallic accents - napkins and gold flatware.
MAKE IT PERSONAL

Blow your Valentine away with simple but effective personal touches! If you're looking to make the day and your present extra special, leave behind your usual store-bought gifts and opt for a meaningful homemade gift.
Think of the last time you received something that felt so thoughtful, unique, and perfect for you? These little personal touches show the special people in your life that you can create something intimate and personal for them.
Write each other a love note. Leave blank note cards on the table so you can write each other a note of appreciation in true Valentine's Day fashion. Just the fact that you're taking the time to sit down, grab a pen and paper, and actually write a love letter—that's a big romantic statement.
Print out the menu of your homemade meal to make the special occasion feel even more elevated. Plus, it gives your partner or dinner party guests something to keep and remember the night by. Place a sprig of rosemary at each place setting; for a fresh scent and pop of green.
INTRODUCE A CENTREPIECE RUG
