Homemade Valentine Table Decorations


Valentine's Day is a special time for couples to celebrate their love. You do not have to go out for a night on the town to have a great Valentine's Day with the one you love. An inexpensive and romantic night can be had right in your own home. Homemade Valentine's Day table decorations help set the right mood and atmosphere for you and that special someone.


No Valentine's Day would be complete without flowers. Roses are the traditional flower indicating romance. But do not stop with traditional red roses. Get roses in your beloved's favorite color. Look for flowers that have special significance for the two of you, or even just a personal favorite of the one you love. Wrap the flowers in Valentine's Day-themed paper, or arrange them into a heart. Create a garland of flowers by using a needle and thread to connect flowers together.


A symbol that is associated most often with Valentine's Day is the heart. Buy construction paper from the craft store. Draw a variety of love hearts on red, pink and white construction paper, all in different sizes. Cut out the hearts. Place them on the table underneath the flowers.


Anything on your table can be given a Valentine's Day theme by adding pink, red and white ribbons around it. Cut off a few lengths of ribbon and tie them around flowers, vases and other decorations to give everything an extra Valentine's Day flair.


Pick up lace at your local craft store in pink, red, and white. Place it around the table with the hearts and candles to give your table decorations a bit of texture. If you have lengths of lace, tie them around objects to complement the ribbon.


Store-bought candles are easily personalized due to the softness of the wax. With a knife, or even a sharpened pencil you can carve things like you and your partner's names into the candles. If you are more artistically inclined, create intricate love hearts and symbols of cupid on the candles.


The dinner that you eat can be a decoration of its own. Pink and red food coloring will give anything that you eat or bake for Valentine's Day the color of the holiday. Even those who are not culinary masters can make a dinner special with a few drops of food coloring.
