We know...Valentine's Day is an over-commercialized holiday that can make you feel guilty for not showering your loved one with gifts. This year, we are suggesting an alternative celebration: Relaxation.
Whether you and your Valentine book a spa day or spend the evening at home, this holiday (and its often inclement weather) should be a time to slow down and appreciate the love we all have in our lives.
Don't have a Valentine? Celebrate with friends, your dog, or a good book. Here are a few ideas to make the day extra special:
DECORATE YOUR SPACE
This color palette fromDesign-Seedsis a great place to start when decorating your space for Valentine's Day. You don't need to get crazy with the decor; a nice bouquet, banner, or wreath will do.
Adding visual elements to your home or workplace go a long way in helping you appreciate the day and feel more inclined to celebrate.
KNOW THAT YOU AREN'T ALONE
Single? Not a problem. If you have more than one special person in your life, such as your girl gang, be sure to celebrate all of them. Even if you can't meet with them, sending a card or a box of chocolates goes a long way in making them feel appreciated.
If creating memories is important to you, try to schedule dinner on the town with your closest friends. After all, Valentine's Day is just a good excuse to get out and about.
TOAST WITH THOSE WHO MATTER MOST
Ready to celebrate friendship, love, and loyalty? Here is our favorite wine list, courtesy ofSpruce Eats, to help you and your posse make the day special, one glass at a time:
We hope you have a wonderful day!
Plants are the new decor trend.
...And this is one trend we fully support. Adding faux or real plants to your home brings life and freshness that no other decor element can.
DESIGN TIP OF THE MONTH
Paint the ceiling.
A painted ceiling is classy beyond belief and allows you to keep your walls white without making your room feel like a blank space. Alternatively, you could wallpaper the ceiling and paint the walls a coordinating color.
