Every year on Valentine’s day, the relationships we share with our family, friends, and/or loved ones are being celebrated. In the days leading up to love’s day, we shower our loved ones with different gifts —boxes of chocolates, goodie boxes, greeting cards, and of course, a lot of red, pink, and white flowers!
Valentine’s day is the most romantic day of the year and is also considered one of the most wonderful times of the year. Thus, the pandemic the world is facing right now will not stop us from celebrating with day —even if we are advised to stay indoors. And what better way can we celebrate Heart’s day but to celebrate it in a Valentine-ready Texas apartment?
Make your Texas apartment ready for Valentine’s with these easy decoration tips!
An excellent way to make your Texas apartment Valentine-ready is adding pillows —with red, pink, and white as colors. You can put them in your sofas, and your bed as well.
For your living area, you can try putting one red pillow along with one white pillow on each end.
For your bed, you can use three pillows on each color, but you can always let your creative side take its course and mix colors!
Why not try a DIY pillowcase?
Want to make your valentine’s day pillow cozier? Why not try DIY pillowcases for that sofa snuggling! With just a few pieces of fabric and some creative juices for stitching, you will have an eye-catching pillowcase that is just too sweet to cuddle into!
You’ll never go wrong with flowers!
What’s a perfect way to represent Valentine’s Day? Flowers! A crystal vase in the middle of your dining or coffee table with red, pink, and white flowers will surely make your room have an elegant vibe!
If you want a more sophisticated vibe, you can opt to just make use of one color and one type of flower.
You can do a little mix of flowers —carnations, peonies, gardenias, etc. Add some greens for a simple, organic look!
Creativity is key
Be creative! You can bind your flowers together, hang them upside down, and wait for a couple of days for that trendy dried bouquet that everyone will surely love!
Whip it with a wreath
Valentine’s day is not all about flowers and chocolates, also about a wreath made of flowers! Did you know that the first thing that comes to people’s minds when decorating their homes for occasions is a wreath? Now you know!
Primp up your door with a wreath made of lollipops, sweets, and/or flowers! Get some Valentine stuff like angels, cupids, heart figurines, and even old buttons, and attach them to your Valentine wreath.
If you’re into the simpler side, you can make use of some twigs and dried flowers.
Play with colors
Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean only sticking to the usual red, pink, and white colors! If you let your creativity flow, you will realize that you can play with colors with a different color scheme!
Perhaps you might like a home that is modern and bright? Then you can go for mint and yellow palettes.
Feeling cute? Go for blush and blue.
Want a light feeling on heart’s day? Try pastel colors!
Turn your Texas apartment’s dining area into a romantic restaurant by adding putting some morning glories and/or orchids as your table centerpiece. Put some black candles and use some gold flatware to set the mood more. Use a loose linen tablecloth for an effortlessly sexy ambiance.
Remember the love notes? Leave blank note cards on the table so you can write and express how much you love and appreciate each other on Valentine’s day! No one is too old for love notes!
Can you imagine Valentine’s day without candles? No way! Nothing sets the romantic mood better than a candlelit dinner. Light up two candles on each side of the dinner table, and you’re good to go! Keep in mind to keep unscented angels so that you won’t get distracted by the smell while enjoying your dinner!
Valentine’s day is known as the day of love: a day when all efforts are made so that our loved ones feel that they have a special place in our hearts.
While there are a million ways to make them feel loved, you don’t really need to spend a lot! More often than not, all you need is to let your inner artist come out!
