You can as well have a beautiful Valentine hanging decor piece. You can get one from the market or design it yourself. It won’t be bad if you design a traditional heart shape.

You may not want to do a big design on the wall for this Valentine’s Day. If you have a large wall, you can design a big traditional heart and past with adhesive. Adhesives are easy to use and they won’t stain your wall.
Another thing that can create a good romantic atmosphere on your sitting room walls is to paste some pictures of your lovely moments together.
Printing your favorite quotes and pasting them around the sitting room walls can do magic too. Just be creative at this point.

If you choose to decorate your table with just flowers, it’s not bad or out of fashion. But, let me assume you want to do something different.
I will advise you to use some candles to illuminate the place, and also put some Place cards around the center of the table.
Another pretty little decor you can do on your table to make it look nice is to simply decorate it with hearts you made from construction paper.
You can cut out different hearts in different colors including pink, red, white, and whatever color you prefer.
If you are lazy like me, you can use a Cricut machine to do that, but just use your hand since you are ready to learn how to have a romantic valentines day at home.
When you are done, sprinkle it around your table, and you will know that you have created a perfect Valentine’s Day atmosphere around your table.
