We're 'feelin' the love' with these Valentine's decorations
Every holiday is an excuse to decorate your house, we think. Even if it’s just small touches here and there, it’s nice to jazz things up a little bit seasonally. And for us, these small changes hold us off a little longer from doing a full redecoration. It’s a great way to itch that redecorating scratch. But Valentine’s Day decorations often get neglected – people tend to focus more on Halloween or Christmas.
Valentine’s Day decorations: to do or not to do?
It’s just one day, so is there a point to decorating? And is it worth decorating even if you’re single? Easy answer: yes.
Valentine’s Day decorations are arguably the cutest holiday decorations out there. It’s a holiday all about feeling the love, so it’s such a great vibe to bring into your home.
Lots of hearts, delicate lace, candy accents. It’s such a fun way to accessorize, even if it’s just for couple of days.
If you’re having a special date night in, having some tasteful Valentine’s Day decorations around can really set the cozy, lovey mood. But it’s also perfect if you’re having a little galentine’s celebration with your friends. And honestly, even if you’re chillin solo on Valentine’s Day, what better way to show love than through self love?
And who says these decorations need to come down February 15th? Keep ’em up all month and keep the love going.
So, what are the best Valentine’s Day decorations?
As with any other holiday, you can really go as all out or as subtle as you want. For a more subtle look, maybe just choose one or two of the following things per room. If you wanna go all out, pick as many that make you happy.
We also included recommendations to hopefully accommodate a wide variety of taste. If you want a more classic, understated look, we got you. If you want a more eccentric option, we also got you.
So let’s go into some details for each room:
kitchen + dining room valentine’s day decorations
If you’re looking to host a special dinner – for yourself, for two, or for a whole friend group – there are so many cute love-y touches you can add into your kitchen and dining room.
This is the easiest swap to make. At a very minimum, I recommend changing these out seasonally.
Not only is this a really cheap (as little as $3!!) swap, but it’s usually one of the main decorative accents in a kitchen. That means high impact, low price.
Grabbing some really cute festive napkins can really bring your special meal to the next level.
You could go classic pink silk/linen or lace. Or you can add in a fun graphic pop with napkins like the lip pattern below.
Who doesn’t love a good excuse to pick up some new barware? Get a beautiful vessel for whatever special Valentine’s Day cocktails you’re whipping up.
heart shaped plates
Buying all new plates for a single special occasion may not be the vibe for everyone. But hey, if you are really trying to go all out, you can’t go wrong with some cute heart-shaped plates.
Prefer to buy a single accent piece of serving ware? This bamboo serving platter is perfect for desserts, a charcuterie board, or anything else you want to display.
living room + bedroom Valentine’s Day decorations
I love to jazz up the cozy areas in my home like the bedroom and living room for holidays. Especially in the living room where it’s super visible to guests.
You can truly never have too many throw blankets. I personally think having any less than 10 blankets in your home is too little.
They’re both functional and decorative. You could fold a Valentine’s Day blanket and put it on the top of your blanket basket pile for a subtle accent. Or you could drape it over the arm of a couch or side chair for a bigger impact.
If you’re trying to pick any one of the potential Valentine’s Day decorations, throw blankets are a great choice.
This one’s self explanatory. Whether you throw them on your bed or a couch in the living room, they make an immediate festive statement.
Simply getting V-day pillow cases to cover pillow you already have is definitely the most budget-friendly option. But if you’re looking to get some great statement pieces, here's an option that is great.
Seasonal scents are such an underrated way to totally change the vibe of your home from season to season. You notice the smell of the spaces you walk into before you even register the visual elements. And luckily, these are also really budget-friendly updates to make.
You can definitely go the visual route and grab some cute, trendy candles like the bubble and knot ones below. But WE would also recommend getting some really lovely, romantic Valentine’s Day-scented candles as well to set the tone.
mini neon heart light
We had to include this super cute, $14 neon light on this list. So affordable and such a cute accent to add to any room in your house to give it that sexy, romantic vibe.
vase or candy holder
What would Valentine’s Day be without flowers and chocolate? So getting vases and candy dishes are a great way to get your home in the lovey dovey spirit.
We hope these suggestions help you start feeling the love
The best thing about Valentine’s Day is the focus on happiness and love, so we think it’s a great time to check in on your home and make sure it’s giving you all the vibes you need.
