Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is that special time of year when we all take the time to remind our loved ones about our fond feelings for them. It’s also the time of year, however, when couples are often plagued with the choice between staying in and going out to celebrate.
If you’re a new homeowner, the more practical option is to stay in and save a little money, but that may not immediately seem like the more romantic option. There are plenty of ways, however, to take advantage of your new space and create Valentine’s Day memories in your home that will last a lifetime
These are a few ways that you can spend a romantic Valentine’s Day enjoying your new home:
Create A Romantic Atmosphere
A romantic atmosphere is a key player in any successful Valentine’s Day. Creating that setting at home can be a simple as lighting a few candles, sprinkling some rose petals around, and having some mood music playing throughout the house. Since you won’t be able to disturb your neighbors as easily as in an apartment, you can get as creative with the mood lighting as you want and broadcast your romantic playlist in the house guilt-free.
Cook Dinner Together
Cooking your Valentine’s Day meal together gives you and your significant other another opportunity to bond on the special night. Use your brand-new appliances to create a culinary masterpiece that you’ll both love eating together, as much as you did making it together.
Enjoy the Outdoors
If you’re a couple that loves the outdoors, take your Valentine’s Day at home outside! Let the beauty of the night envelop you as you take in the stars in your private backyard. Have a picnic, relax by a fire, make s’mores , watch a movie— the options for outdoor entertainment at home are endless.
Regardless of you and your significant other’s unique definition of romance, there’s always a way to bring them to life in your new Starlight Home.
