Having a child is undeniably one of the greatest happiness of life. Kids create a new deep bond in a relationship, but lots of responsibilities are added at the same time, and life gets busy. So if you can’t go out for a date on Valentine’s Day because of the adorable addition in your family, you can create a romantic atmosphere at home yourself. Just take out some time and energy from your hectic schedule and decorate your home for the special day. Here are a few ideas that will make your day memorable.
Set up the mood with candle lights
Lighting is the perfect source to set up your mood for any occasion. Warm and dim lights will make your home feel a love zone on Valentine’s Day. Replace all the bright lights with dim and sexy bulbs. Candles will make your house even more beautiful. Place candles of different sizes at different areas of your home, for instance windows, tables. Try to use battery candles so you don’t have to worry if you get engaged in other activities.
Make your home smell fragrant
There can be no better way to refresh the air of your home, then to use Valentines flowers. Think out of the box and create cute décor with flowers and rose petals. You can also use a nice perfume to make your home feel intoxicated. Keep in mind that strong fragrance can cause headaches and spoil the mood of your partner. So use the scent with care.
Plan a surprise
Surprises are the most adorable way to show someone how much you really care about them. Sending flowers for Valentine’s Day at work will make your mate feel really special, but you can think about other spectacular ideas like painting his portrait, making a photo collage, planning a trip or leaving love notes in his car.
Prepare his favorite meal
As the old expression goes, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ so try to impress your companion with your culinary skills. If you have hired a local chef to make the food daily, let him take rest for a day. Do some research and get the recipes of your partner’s favorite dishes. If you are trying the recipes for the first time, taste them beforehand to avoid any embarrassing situation.
Switch off the distractions
February 14th is the day to celebrate love and togetherness. Take the rest of the things out of your life at least for some time and concentrate on your partner only. Don’t let anything disturb you. Turn off your laptops, iPads and ring tones so you can focus on each other easily.
Focus on texture
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be the most sensual and romantic day of the year so play with texture to make it unforgettable for your honey. Put some interesting things on your bedside like feathers, a rose, a soft teddy bear etc. Make your bed warm and cozy, and throw a fur blanket across it.
