8 February 2022 | Insights Team

This Valentine’s day, flex your creativity to create a romantic and unforgettable way to celebrate the Day of Love right from the comfort of your home. To get those creative juices flowing here are a few great ideas on how you can celebrate Valentine’s Day at home, in true style.

Create romantic ambience

Getting romantic at home gives you loads of scope to up the charm factor by creating a beautiful and intimate setting. For inspiration, think of the kind of atmosphere at your favourite restaurant or boutique hotel and replicate that magic at home. Clear away all non-romantic and distracting electronic items like your laptop and turn off all cell phones. Next, put together a beautifully decorated tablescape with a theme. Flowers always make a romantic statement on any table, or how about a new table runner as an affordable alternative? Scented candles, potted plants or herbs add a touch of green. In fact, you don’t even have to use your dining room at all! An intimate area can be created in the living room, patio or garden and, of course, dessert can be served in bed! 

Make a meal of it

Cooking a tasty meal together can really be romantic! Create a delectable menu with all your favourites. For inspiration, check out these easy-yet-impressive Valentine’s Day recipes and get cooking. There are also loads of wonderful local caterers and restaurants you can order online from too, at the click of a mouse. 

Don’t forget the music

Music adds romance and ambience to any occasion and you shouldn’t forget to put together a romantic soundtrack. Compile a list of all your personal and memorable favourites. A streaming service such as Spotify or Deezer is your first port of call. Let the music play softly in the background to create an extra special ambience. 

Show your special someone how much they mean to you 

Make Valentine’s Day memorable by making your special someone a unique gift that money simply can’t buy; write a love letter or a love song and let your inner poet or musician loose.
