On Valentine’s Day, we often want to express our love and affection for those closest to us. The home is a great place to do this – aside from classic cards and chocolates, these simple touches will feel romantic and special this holiday.
Red roses are of course the quintessential Valentine’s Day symbol, but even just your partner’s favorite flower or plant will be meaningful and romantic for them on the holiday. A simple bouquet can completely transform a room and bring it to life – place them in a vase and use them as a centerpiece for your Valentine’s Day dinner or leave them somewhere your partner spends a lot of time, like their desk in the home office.
Adding a bright touch of red during this time of year feels so romantic – and it doesn’t have to just be in roses. Red berry branches in a vase are simple, low-maintenance and can be kept up all month long. Or, if you want to feel festive in the whole home, add rich red throw pillows, coffee table books, linen napkins or towels in the powder room.
Candles are incredibly romantic. Dimming the lights and lighting some unscented white pillar candles will immediately make the entire home feel moody and set for Valentine’s Day.
If you’re having dinner at home, creating the perfect dinner table is a no-brainer. A thoughtfully designed dinner table doesn’t need to be elaborate, either. Simply add a white tablecloth, set the table as you usually do, and add some flowers and candles. It will feel like the two of you went to a fancy restaurant while in the comfort of your own home.
Yes, rose petals can feel a bit cheesy on Valentine’s Day, but in the right context, they can be very tasteful and romantic. An apothecary vase of rose petals on the countertop, for instance, feels festive without being too over the top (or making too much of a mess). Use a couple inside the envelope that holds your Valentine’s Day card, in the bathtub drawn for the two of you, or along the base of some candles set at the dinner table.
Incorporating small and thoughtful additions to your home can immediately transform the space into something special for Valentine’s Day. These touches don’t have to be anything extravagant, but they’ll make a big difference.

In a metropolis as large as Atlanta and its surrounding towns, there is no shortage of vibrance, personality and spirit. It’s the perfect city for celebrating Valentine’s Day together!
Here are some Valentine’s Day tips to help you celebrate 2022 right — whether you plan to go out, stay in, or both!
In and around Atlanta, you could almost say there are as many restaurants as there are tastes. There’s truly something for everyone, so don’t be afraid to get specific and pick the cuisine and ambience that will make an unforgettable impression!
There are countless creative possibilities. To give you an idea, here are just a few highlights.
Candytopia is an “outrageously interactive” curated experience with Instagram-worthy environments and carefully crafted candy goodness. Those with a sweet tooth won’t want to miss these delicious photo ops — or the candy shop!
Take a trip down the rabbit hole of imagination at Mad Hatter’s (Gin &) Tea Party! This “immersive cocktail experience” features a guided trip through an unforgettable succession of crazy, crafted cocktails with the Mad Hatter, Dormouse and Hare.
The Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View is on the uppermost floors of the Westin Peachtree Plaza and offers a stunning view from 723 feet above downtown Atlanta. Share a five-course meal made of the best farm-to-table ingredients for a magnificent Valentine’s Day experience.
For the ultimate relaxation, how about ordering a curbside meal and enjoying your favorite tastes in familiar surroundings?
You can take advantage of all the abundant space and comfort your Lennar kitchen and dining area offers, even during an intimate gathering for two. You might be surprised at how easy it is to refresh your living space for a romantic occasion. Fresh flowers, softer lighting and tastefully deployed scents can turn this familiar room into something very special indeed.
Of course, this could also be an opportunity to make fresh use of a different living space. Your own patio might be the ideal spot for a candlelit dinner. After all, a change of scenery can be very romantic.
You might even want to play with the theme of the food a bit. Consider styling the occasion to be like an “outdoor” picnic, with traditional red-and-white decor. It’s a whimsical and unforgettable way to get the classic picnic vibe with none of the inconveniences — like ants!
Think about the space you already have and consider how easily you can get creative. Above all, don’t forget to order dessert for two.
Your Valentine’s Day fun doesn’t have to be limited to one day. In fact, any day of the year is a good time to explore this your city together. Consider taking a tour together as a precursor to Valentine’s Day festivities — or as a followup date.
Atlanta Botanical Garden makes for a delightful day or night date. It’s a true jewel of the city, offering 30 acres of stunning scenery to explore and learn about. You can pack your own meals or even dine on-site at the Longleaf Restaurant.
The 127-acre Chattahoochee Nature Center offers day or night adventure including canoeing, open-air movies, hiking and other outdoor events.
The Atlanta BeltLine is a great place for a bike ride, a street stroll and a breath of fresh air. Enjoy a multitude of bars, eateries and curiosities all along this refreshing, art-dotted route.
For a different perspective altogether, try THE ROOF at Ponce City Market! This unforgettable date spot features carnival treats, eats and fun as well as gourmet libations and a breathtaking view. Don’t miss The Skyline Slide!
