Valentines day candy

Figuring out a way to spend Valentine’s Day? Celebrate this special day in your very own apartment! Here are six ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at your apartment this year!

Clean up and De-Clutter

First and foremost, you have to tidy up your apartment before you can begin your Valentine’s Day setup. Think of cleaning up as a prerequisite before you’re even allowed to make any decorative changes. Have you ever cleaned up your room and felt an overwhelming sense of accomplishment? De-cluttering your apartment will not only impress your loved one, but it may make you feel better as well. That wonderful feeling is stress leaving your body because you can now move and think freely in your apartment. You’re going to want to make a good impression and this is a great first start!

Mood Lighting

The next step is to set the mood with a unique arrangement of lighting. Consider installing dimmers on your light switches so you can lower the lights at any level you find fit to create the overall ambience you’re looking for. Or fill your apartment with candles to create the overall perfect setting!

Buy Flowers that will Last

You can’t have a successful holiday without buying flowers if you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day in your apartment. Flowers have always been a symbol of love and beauty. The trick is to try and find flowers that will last. Ditch the roses that’ll last three days! Research and purchase a nice decorative collection of flowers that will last – unless roses are your favorite flower that is!

Dinner at Home

One of the best ways to spend Valentine’s Day is to stay in and cook dinner at home. This way you’ll avoid the crowds and the busy restaurants so you can enjoy some quality time with your loved one. Even if you’re not the best chef, your partner will appreciate you leaving your comfort zone for them. Be sure to make their favorite meal.

Make Homemade Desserts

Skip the pre-made arrangements and save some money on the overpriced chocolate! Make some homemade desserts for you and your loved one to indulge in after dinner. This romantic gesture is easy to make and doesn’t take up a lot of space in your apartment kitchen. Leave the chocolate boxes at the store and become a pastry chef for the night! Chocolate covered strawberries anyone?
