Valentines Day decoration for Party

Let’s start with the door design.

A heart-shaped wreath should be hung on it.

Next we enter the room and pay attention to the windows. Garlands of valentines day cards hang on them and on the windowsill there is a “tree of love.”

We look at the walls: on them are photographs arranged in the shape of a heart held by a boy and a girl (silhouettes are cut out of paper). 

But this is not the only solution, you can apply an alternative design. You can add lights to the windows by hanging a garland, create paintings using lip silhouettes and photographs, and place them on the walls.

Valentine’s Day decor has no limits.

Valentines Day decoration for tables

The main attribute on the table will be candles. They create the most romantic atmosphere.

There are many options for decorating candlesticks:

  • Use a transparent glass,
  • filling it with rose petals;
  • pour pebbles to the bottom.

You can decorate the candle directly.

For this, you need to string cardboard hearts onto the wire and place around the case.

  • pour into a large transparent container of water,
  • place candle candles there,
  • add rose petals.

In addition to candles on the table, you can pour rose petals or valentines cards, put a garland (it will look better under a red tablecloth), put fresh flowers.

The image is good with the napkins folded in the shape of a heart. And, of course, a delicious dinner will complete the symphony.
