Decorating The Home With
Valentine’s Day Decor
By Roy Thomsitt
Valentine’s Day comes hot on the heels of Christmas, New Year and the Chinese
New Year, occasions when decorations, plus special home and garden décor, are at
their most abundant. While people do not generally decorate their homes
extensively for Valentine's Day, now you have got in the decoration mood, why
not have a few special Valentine ornaments about the home to signify the day?
If your Valentine's ornaments are well chosen, they may even fit into your
home decor at other times too. Special Valentine ornaments can also make unusual
Valentine gifts, for supplementing the roses and chocolates, or even as gifts
for Mum and Dad.
There is, of course, nothing like the vast choice of Valentine ornaments as
there is for Christmas. But that does not mean there are none in the stores or
online; and you can always make your own. If you have children, you may even
find the younger ones make you something at school.
However, assuming you want to buy special Valentine’s ornaments and décor,
then here are just a few ideas of the type of things to look out for.
Ideas For Valentine Décor
If you are buying, or expecting, roses on Valentine’s Day, then an
appropriately designed and tastefully decorated vase may be a choice
accompaniment. A red vase in an attractive design may prove opportune for
Valentine’s Day, but can also play a part for your summer cut flowers when your
garden is in full bloom; that is, if it is not over adorned with Valentine Day
As with Christmas, a cheerful welcome sign to hang on or by the front door
is great way to greet people who arrive at your home on and around Valentine’s
Day. By signifying your home is a place of love and romance, visitors should be
immediately warmed by the greeting. Some of the best examples are also very
By their very nature, sun catchers are very cheerful and optimistic, so are
ideal for a heart warming Valentine’s Day, reflecting not just the sunlight but
the light coming from your heart too. Coloured in reds and pinks, and with heart
shaped decorations, if you are lucky enough to find a good Valentine sun
catcher, it will be an attractive feature for some time to come.
Easier to find than sun catchers, Valentine wind chimes are a good choice
for those who appreciate the gentle chime of these popular indoor and outside
ornaments. Again you will find heart shaped decorations are common, but you may
find the occasional fairy and other decorous feature added to make the wind
chime even more attractive.
One of the easier types of Valentine décor to find is Valentine candle
holders. Jar, tea light or pillar candle holders can all come with a Valentine
theme, or you can simply choose a romantic red and buy some richly scented
candles to go with them.
I am sure with a bit of thought and searching you can come up with many more
ideas for Valentine Day decorations, whether to buy or to use your craft skills
to make your own.
