Valentines day is around the corner and love is in the air. Even if you’re not a big fan of the Hallmark holiday nor do you have a special someone in your life, it’s always nice to use an occasion to make your home extra lovely. You don’t have to go crazy with decorations that scream V-day but you can create a feeling, an ambiance that generates a bit of a romantic ambiance and is distinct from other days.
Buy yourself, your roommate or your partner some flowers. It makes a home feel alive and is guaranteed to make its occupants happier. Besides, in February when all the trees are bare and the grass is hardly green anymore it’s nice to have a little color around.
Light candles to infuse your apartment with a romantic vibe. They soften the mood and make us all feel a calm and slightly starry-eyed.
Get yourself and others in the household a bottle of something special—like champagne or a wine you’ve had your eye on—or make a unique cocktail for Valentines Day.
Something sweet is appreciated by practically everyone in the household. Bake cookies, cakes, muffins or anything else that strikes your fancy. That sweet smell permeating through the house will sure soften even the most anti-valentine person.
Message on a Fridge
Print, or better yet handwrite, a sweet poem or passage from a book you like and put it up on your fridge. Each time you see it, you’ll appreciate the beauty and power of words.
