Dinner decorating ideas

It’s not about how much money you spend or how fancy a restaurant you go to. Valentine’s Day can be just as good when celebrated at home (if not better) so why not spruce up your normal dinner table with some heart-shaped confetti and a red rose?

We’ll let you in on a little secret – ours is a fake rose – but it’s still a cute little gesture.

Sweets for your sweet

Heart-shaped balloons

We did say there’s nothing wrong with a bit of cheese on Valentine’s Day and getting a big red heart-shaped balloon can be rather sweet.

But romantic gestures are rather like that ‘a dog is for life, not just for Christmas’ saying… Make sure you do nice things for your Valentine for the rest of the year too!
