Depending on your situation, you may either love or hate Valentine’s day. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, this Sunday can be made fun by doing things that bring back good memories. Creating a moodboard is a fun project that can be filled with photos, ticket stubs, and other past memorabilia to create a collage to hang in bedrooms or living spaces. If the outdoors is more your speed, get out into your own backyard by hiking, biking, or skiing with someone you care about.
If you are staying indoors, decorating for the season can be a fun way to prepare for this weekend. Decoration is a task that can still be handled in the next day or two, if you know what to do. House Beautiful shares ways to spice up you walls, settings, and even incorporate a sculpture into your living space to set the ambience after returning from an evening’s event.
One great way to make sure that all of your friends (paired or not) have a great evening is to throw a “Valentine’s day fete”. With a quick run to the store and a few things around the house, your house will be filled with friends having a great time snacking on treats and celebrating St. Valentine. Don’t shy away if you live in a space that is not “entertainment friendly”, there are still ways to throw a party in a small space.
Make sure to finish off your guests experience at your party with small touches, such as the printable napkin setting shown above. As simple as printing out a paper or image, these little additions can add the warmth a party needs for almost no effort.
Above all, don’t stress out about the day. Although traditional culture may lead you to think you have to buy special trinkets or gifts, Valentine’s day is about quality time with everybody in your life that is special to you. Planning a trip to an interesting place or even just cuddling at home is a great way to spend the upcoming Sunday.
