The main thing is that the holiday does not end – it will be easier to maintain an excellent mood in the cold and not rich in colors winter month.

1. Make bright heart-shaped mats
The easiest and fastest way to change your mood at home transform the exposure on the wall. Hang up valentines with confessions everywhere, and on boring photos and posters, make temporary holiday mats in the shape of hearts.

If the frame is difficult to disassemble, stick on top of the glass directly on the glass overhead mat made of bright corrugated paper on double-sided tape. Glue, pressing it not very tightly, after all, it has yet to be removed from the glass when the holiday is over!

4. Add aphrodisiac scents
By the way, take care of romantic aromas in the house: candles with the smell of berries, cinnamon, unobtrusive vanilla (which is usually difficult to find) or aromatic oils of rose, bergamot, jasmine will help create the right atmosphere. But even ordinary odorless candles will create a romantic mood. who doesn’t appreciate a candlelit dinner?

Moreover, in February we are immediately lucky to arrange a themed holiday: on Sunday 14th and on a holiday on 23rd. Just when placing open fire sources around the house, do not forget about safety precautions: make sure that the candles stand far from paper and flammable fabrics.

5. Make a postcard with your own hands
If not a valentine, then just a beautifully designed note with the most important words! Prepare in advance a worthy place for her in the house. You will have to devote the day before the holiday to cleaning – remove all unnecessary from horizontal surfaces so that your Valentine card is not lost among other papers and accessories on the dresser.

6. Arrange fresh flowers
Do not forget to add blossoming flowers for a romantic holiday atmosphere. It is not necessary to arrange cut flowers in vases around the house.

For a couple of weeks from February 14 until the end of the month, the luxurious flowering of amaryllis or hippeastrum (Hippeastrum) – their strong hands with large red or white flowers are easy to find on sale at IKEA. Anturium Is another plant that is strongly associated with men’s holidays. Be careful with the forcing hyacinths and daffodils, of which there are so many on sale – their aroma is so strong that it can cause headaches at night. And it will certainly interrupt all the aphrodisiacs that are subtly and skillfully placed around the house.


If you yourself took care of planting forcing plants a couple of months before February, get the pots out of a cold place: even if the flowers do not have time to open on February 23, they will certainly bloom by March 8.
