With frigid temperatures and COVID-19 cases on the rise again, you may prefer to stay in for Valentine’s Day this year.
Since Valentine’s Day is all about expressing love and affection to your special someone, spicing up part of your home for the evening might be the perfect move. A private area like a deck, screened-in porch, or patio provides a comfy space to curl up and spend valuable time together while never having to hop in a car and leave your home.
Here are some ways to amp up the mood using your very own outdoor oasis:
Put Your Fire Pit to Use
Nothing beats cuddling up with your significant other by the fire. Since we can all agree February isn’t the warmest month to be outside, a fire can make all the difference in keeping your toes from going numb. Grab some thick blankets, chairs, and your special someone, and you’re good to go.
Set The Mood With Music and Lighting
Both music and lighting can be the key to creating a romantic mood. Choose songs that both you and your partner enjoy, and keep it soft and relaxed. For lighting, romantic candles are always a good option and they can be placed in a number of different areas to spice up the space. Another option for lighting is outdoor string lights that will instantly amp up the mood and make the space feel magical.
Decorate With Flowers or Rose Petals
It’s no secret that flowers are a big part of Valentine’s Day traditions. If you’re a big romantic, then this option is for you. Grab some roses at the store, and then decorate your space by tossing handfuls of petals all around the deck or table. Since rose petals symbolize passion and love, this gesture will be sure to make your partner smile.
Even if you prefer to stay home this year, you don’t have to miss out on a romantic evening with your loved one. With these easy-to-execute tips, you can make the most out of the holiday by bringing the romance to your backyard.
