As for the tablescape, use reds, golds or silvers. If you want, you can add other colors that have a personal connection, such as your significant other’s favorite color. The table cover or runner should be in an accent color, or a pattern that incorporates your theme. As for accents, find vintage knick-knacks in love-related themes, like spelling ‘love’ in Scrabble letters. Placing candy hearts or your loved one’s favorite candy in a bowl on the table is also a nice touch.

In the living room, add pictures or items that bring comfort to you both. Add a blanket on the couch that you can cuddle in, along with a comfy pillow to lay on. You can also have some creativity and create an indoor fire to roast some marshmallows and sip hot chocolate together. To do this, you can buy a portable, flameless smore-maker, lay some pillows near it and put the items for smokes in red bowls.

For the bedroom, bring out your best sheets. If they are red, or evoke a sense of love and comfort in other ways, use them. Instead of laying flower petals randomly, you can opt to place them in a nice, clear bowl on your night stands. If you want to add candles to the mix, then place candles in a large bowl with flowers, or in a small bowl with flowers surrounding the bowl on the table. Switch out some pictures with the aforementioned ideas.If you’d rather something more subdued, design the living room by bringing the outdoors in, creating the effect of sleeping outside.
