This Hallmark holiday can bring its fair share of anxiety to many, but for us, it’s a celebration of love in all its forms. It’s about friendship, companionship, lovers and family alike. Yes, if you’re looking for a gift for that special someone, we’ve got you covered with our lush gift list. However, if you’re just looking for an excuse to add a pop of colour, comfy furniture for two (or more) and snuggle up in style to watch your favourite film, then you’re in the right place.
This day does not necessarily have to be a formal affair, why not prepare a delightful spread of nibbles and wine to share with an intimate group of friends? Think cheese, bread, olives, and plenty of fruit and vino. Display them in beautiful tableware and get your best wine glasses on display. Voila!
If you do plan an evening for two, a love seat is ideal to cuddle and watch your favourite film. Add a luscious throw and some silk cushions for the ultimate tactile experience.
Don’t forget ambient lighting for your evening of love. Opt for flickering flames dotted around your home with Culinary Concept’s Octagon Pagoda lantern (available in two sizes) or choose a handful of these large two-wick scented candles by Illume.
On the other hand, if you’re hosting and evening of laughter, fun and joy with your nearest and dearest you want to think about creating an inviting seating area. Check out these Luv seats by Adrenalina, they’re not only aptly named for the ocassion and super comfy, but they’re sure to make an impact well beyond Valentine’s Day.
Let’s wrap this evening up with whimsical tableware to add a dash of old romance to your day. The poetry plates by Mineheart are inscribed with lovely quotes, the one on the large dinner plate reads: "I love the way you look at me, and the way you use your knife. I love the way you eat your food, you give meaning to my life." Now, that’s true poetry!
