It’s February 14, and that time of the year when couples worldwide choose to celebrate with dinner dates in posh restaurants, or head to romantic getaways, or even have an intimate date night at home. All you need is a little décor, a nice hearty meal, and a few exchanges of gifts to complete this celebration of love and affection. But before we start decorating our homes, let us understand the origin of Valentine’s Day.
The theory goes that Emperor Claudius II of Rome executed two men named Valentine on February 14 separately in two different years in the 14th century. It is said that St. Valentine was a priest arrested for defying a Roman decree forbidding soldiers from marrying. As a result, he was executed as wed lovers in secret and thus is known as the patron saint of love. Hence, the annual celebration of love and romance across the world’s various regions pays homage to St. Valentine, and the festival is named after him.
So, indulge your affection for your beloved and transform your celebration into an awesome and unforgettable one. Here are some amazing Valentine’s Day decoration ideas to hang out on cloud 9 with your Valentine.
1. Style the Table
Dress up your table in style, as nothing says romance more than a nice candlelight dinner. Red is the color of passion, so strategically create a layered setting with hues of red in the table linen, dinnerware, and placement mats. Make sure to strike the right balance, so the tablescape looks elegant and not gaudy.
2. Eclectic Candle
Designed by James Kaoru Bury, the Chouchin Candle is pillar-shaped, styled to look like a traditional Japanese ‘chouchin’ lantern. It is made from two different grades of wax, one on the inside, which burns the way an ordinary candle would, and the non-melting wax on the outside, which serves as the candle’s exterior; it lends subtle translucency and mimics the effects of a lantern by diffusing the light that passes through it. The best part is that the wax collects within the candle when it melts and eliminates the need for having a plate or tray below. The candle can be held while it’s burning, and the traditional candle has a burning time of 60 hours.
3. Say it with an Everlasting Rose
While roses are one of the most popular way of showcasing your love, the Everlasting Rose takes your sentimental display to a whole new level! In an era where we want our gifts to last and also be useful for a longer period of time, the ordinary rose that needs to be thrown away ends the romance a little too soon.

And before we go ahead and announce it artificial, the roses used are 100%natural and ethically sourced from farmers who grow them minus the pesticides or chemicals. Get your’s now and let it share your language of love for years!
