Create a Boho Romantic Table Setting
Whether it’s a dinner for 2 or a dinner for all your besties, create a fun boho romantic table scape. The first step to creating this table scape is to use macrame placemats. Our Boho Macrame Indoor/Outdoor Placemats are the perfect option (as shown in the photo above) with their hand-knotted artwork.
The next step is to add some vases and pampas grass in varying colors and sizes. To really tie in the Valentine’s theme, purchase small heart shaped gems and spread them across the table for a romantic touch. Add some tiny tea light candles, and now your table is all set. All that's left now is to serve some delicious food for your guests.
Make a Romantic Atmosphere with Candles
Nothing is more romantic than candles. They create a soothing, intimate atmosphere that’s perfect for special occasions. To set the mood, try using candles in shades of red and pink. Place them around the room- on top of the mantel, on the windowsill, or kitchen counterspace. Candles are such a simple way to create a warm and cozy ambiance. There is nothing more soothing than enjoying a conversation with a friend with the glow of candlelight.
Heart-Themed Valentine’s Décor
Show your loved ones you care by decorating your home in a way that shows your affection. Add a touch of love with heart-shaped decorations. You can find hearts in varying sizes, and colors. Hang them from the ceiling, put them on the walls, or scatter them throughout the room.
Another option is to use red and pink as your main colors. These colors are associated with love and sure to set the mood for a romantic evening. You can use these colors in everything from your walls to your tablecloths.
Embrace the Candy Heart Theme
If you’ve ever given Valentine’s cards to your friends and family, chances are you’ve seen those little candy hearts with sayings like “Love You” and “Be Mine.” While they may be small, these sweet treats can make someone’s day and bring them a smile. Using them as part of your decoration is an easy and affordable way to create a festive atmosphere.
Use a large glass jar or vase to put all the candy hearts in, or put them in different small glass containers throughout your home so your guests can grab a quick treat. You can also use the candy hearts are part of any other decorations that you add to the room, like stringing them on garlands or putting them around candles. No matter what creations you come up with, your guests will love it -- and they’ll love the sweet treat even more.
