How can I make my room romantic for Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is a romantic day to share with your significant other. Most of these simple ways add the perfect romantic touches for creating a romantic setting for Valentine's Day. Fresh flowers, candles, and fairy lights will make any room feel magical and romantic.

Create a Colorful Room with Red and Pink Accent Colors

One of the simplest ways to transform a room into a Valentine's space is simply adding touches of red or pink. In our kitchen rocking chair room, I achieved this with a warm rosy pink velvet ribbon and pink flowers.

Add a velvet ribbon a wreath for Valentine decorations

On this little pom pom wreath I made during the winter, I removed the light gray blue ribbon and added this dark pink ribbon to the wreath. Repeat the ribbon through the room and your house. This is truly a easy way of adding I love you colors to your decor.

Fill the Room with Fresh or Faux Flowers

Here is another place I used the ribbon. This bunny rabbit gets dressed up each holiday or season with a coordinating ribbon, and then I add something to his basket that also represents the holiday.

Hamilton is his name, so I placed artificial matching peonies in his basket after giving him a new tie. It adds the perfect pop of color for Valentine's.

You don't need fancy floral arrangements to decorate for Valentine's. Like the ribbon, sprinkle more flowers through your house as I did here in our kitchen.

Red roses are typical for Valentine's but aren't the only pretty red or pink fresh flowers you can use. Because the azaleas have started blooming early, I snipped some for this adorable handmade strainer my daughter made in college.

You don't have to only use flowers you can also use leaves that are rosy colored.

Rosy colored branches as a valentine decoration

While on my morning walk, I discovered a tree with these gorgeous branches full of rosy leaves. Bonus points! Free flowers. I returned with my sheers, cut off about ten branches, and placed them in a big basket on our dining table.

Set a pitcher of water inside so the branches have water to drink to make them last longer.

Light It Up with Candles and String Lights

Let's go back to Hamilton and the kitchen rocking chair room because it is time to talk about probably the most Valentinish decoration of all, which is candles.

If you have any battery-powered or real candles, nestle them into your Valentine's decorations as I did here on the end table.

Decorating with candles for Valentine's day makes this holiday decorating idea so easy and is a great way to create a romantic atmosphere. Here is another example of using a candle to decorate for Valentine's day.

I love using this old jar candle and it is a great example of a vintage valentine decorating ideas.

I placed an old thrifted cutting board on my range and then set a jar candle next to my flower arrangement. You can use a scented candle or unscented and enjoy the smell of your fresh flowers.

Add Valentine Art with Printables

I have been a fan of changing our decorations with printables, so much so that I created my own Etsy printable wall art shop. For the kitchen area, I used this rose botanical set. I picked out my two favorites and used an office stapler to attach them to three paint paddles with the handle cut off.

I forgot to mention I painted the wood pieces with antique gold rub n buff before I attached the prints and then last attached a piece of twine to the top so it would hang in my kitchen area.

It gives my wall decor the perfect updated vintage look.

Victorian Cupid printable pastel colors

Here is another printable I used on our fireplace mantel. This cupid definitely brings the valentine's spirit. Sorry for the photo quality, but I grabbed a shot from a video on a rainy day, and that is why it is so grainy.

I printed this cupid victorian printable, scaling it to a smaller size in the print settings, and then placed it over another piece of art in this mini ornate frame.

Decorate with Valentine Garlands and Banners

And last is one of my oldest decorations for Valentine's day — this doily heart garland is a favorite vintage valentine craft.

A long time ago, I did a post on how to make a doily heart garland. This easy Valentine's garland is so cheap and easy that even the kids can do it.

Consider hanging this Valentine's Day decoration on your hutch as I did in my dining room, or bring a little love to the living room by hanging it on your fireplace mantel when decorating with the garland. The options are endless.

And – another good idea – you can layer other garlands with it like this felt ball garland or a pom pom garland. I have directions on how to make a pom pom garland too.
