If you are looking for something more original than a box of chocolates and a dozen red roses, let your creativity come to the rescue. Valentine's Day is a wonderful holiday, and it deserves your full attention. These ideas can help you create a memorable romantic getaway on Valentine's Day weekend for you and your significant other.
Romantic Getaway Ideas:
Wake them up With Flowers
Speaking of first impressions, you can create a great one by laying a bouquet of flowers on her pillow and to add a finishing touch add a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil to wake up all her sense. She will surely appreciate the gesture, and it could be the start of a wonderful romantic weekend.
You could do the same thing everyone else is doing and send her a dozen red roses at the office, but who wants to be like everyone else? Valentine's Day is the time to do it up big, and that means filling the house with fresh flowers and romantic gestures.
Start by filling an elegant glass bowl with her favorite flowers and placing it by the front door. That floral expression will be the first thing she sees when she comes home from a hard day at work.
Continue the floral indulgence with a fresh floral centerpiece and a couple of candles on the dining room table. Then bring out the meal you have carefully prepared so the two of you can enjoy a romantic dinner worthy of the Valentine's Day holiday.
Relax and Unwind
After dinner you and your partner can enjoy a relaxing bubble bath and even more floral-themed romance. Take some of the petals from your earlier creations, sprinkle them around the room and fill the tub with scented oils or pink bubble bath.
You and your partner can enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub while you digest the wonderful meal you made. She can also enjoy the pleasing aroma of the fresh flowers as it wafts through the bathroom and infuses the water in the tub.
A Pan Full of Flower
If you have been busy creating your own floral designs for Valentine's Day, there will probably be a few loose petals lying around. Why not put them to good use and create a special gift in the process?
Just take a heart-shaped pan like the kind you used to cook her Valentine's Day dessert, then fill it with the flower petals. She will love the special touch, and you both can enjoy a special evening together. You can place the pan of fresh flowers on the dressing table in your bedroom so it will be the first thing you see when you enter.
Valentine's Day is a day to go all out, and a time when half measures simply will not do. Filling your home with fresh flowers and turning the place into a floral wonderland creates a romantic air and lets you celebrate this special holiday in style. It might take some time and effort to bring it all together, but all that hard work will surely be rewarded.
Tips & Tricks:
If you do not have vases to create a floral wonderland for your romantic getaway, use wine glasses or any clear container. Grab a large bouquet, separate the flowers and cut the stems short to create separate tiny bouquets to add to the glasses. Then add the wine glasses all around your home to finalize that romantic getaway atmosphere.
