Decorating for Valentine’s Day is a great way to celebrate the holiday. Decorating for the holiday can be done to set the mood for a romantic date, for a fun party, to help kids get excited for the day, etc. Regardless of what you are decorating for, the following are some decoration ideas.
The first thing you want to consider when decorating for Valentine’s Day is the symbols of the holiday. For example, hearts are a great symbol for love, and since the holiday is for love, they are appropriate for decoration. Other Valentine’s Day symbols include cupids, arrows, hearts shot through with arrows, and the like. These make great decorations, as they can be used to decorate walls, windows, cars, classrooms, or whatever it is that needs decorating. You can get cut outs, use clip art, or make your own with paper. Cutting out tons of paper hearts and securing them all over a wall can be a great way to decorate a room for Valentine’s Day.
Next, consider the mood or purpose of your decorating. If you are decorating for children, using a variety of the Valentine’s Day colors, pink, red, and white, and plenty of the symbols in cartoon form, etc. is a great way to set the mood. You can use balloons and other items in the shape of Valentine’s Day symbols, etc. are fun. If you are decorating for an intimate dinner with a sweetheart, candles, flowers, and simplistic decorations will likely be a better choice. So, consider the event or reason for decorating, and select your décor accordingly.
Color is a big part of the holiday. For example, Halloween is represented with Orange and Black, Christmas with red and green, etc. Valentine’s Day is decorated with reds, pinks, and whites. So, when decorating for Valentine’s Day, you can use just about anything as décor and it will work as long as it is red, white, or pink. Often, people will make hearts out of several different shades of each color, or make paper chains out of them.
Flowers are also a great way to decorate for Valentine’s Day, as they are often a symbol of love and affection, and are a typical gift. Rose petals scattered around a room can set a romantic mood, daisies on a table can let someone know of your joyful affection, and brighten a room. Flowers make great table centerpieces, etc.
Another great way to decorate is to utilize various phrases or sayings that are associated with love, and post them about a room. These can help people remember their tender sentiments to one another, or bring up memories that are shared with joy.
Valentine’s Day decorations can be purchased at almost any store, and if you can’t find something specifically Valentine’s Day oriented, look for reds and pinks, as you are sure to find a red table cloth, or pink streamers at any party store, and can then use construction paper and the like to create the rest of your décor.
