Unique Ideas For Valentine's Day Decorations

Unique Ideas For Valentine's Day Decorations
By Brenda Prevost

Everyone thinks of chocolates and red roses for Valentine’s Day. But there are other ways to show your Valentine how much you care that will create wonderful memories for years to come. Create a romantic atmosphere using LED lights and exquisite faux roses easily and economically. These unique Valentine’s Day decoration ideas will set the mood for the most romantic evening ever!


The right lighting is an important part of a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner setting. Here are some different ways to create a romantic mood to enhance your evening.

Red Balloon Lights in Heart Shaped Balloons

Balloon lights are small LED lights that fit inside almost any type of balloon. They are battery operated and last an average of 12 hours. What better a way to say “Happy Valentine’s Day” than some heart shaped balloons with brilliant red lights shining from within. They can be set to blink or stay on a steady glow. How unforgettable is that? When the batteries are exhausted you can purchase more, so you can save them for a surprise party, birthday or other upcoming event.

Red LED Mini Lights

Get some unique garland (perhaps heart-themed or faux rose) and intertwine some red LED mini lights through it. Decorate the dining room with the LED accented garland and a romantic candle centerpiece for the table. The warm glow of the candles and the romantic red brilliance of the LED’s are the perfect way to set the mood for a special Valentine’s Day dinner.

Heart Shaped Rope Light Motifs

Surprise your Valentine by hanging one of these beautiful bright red heart shaped rope lights in the window or door. They’ll shine almost as brightly as the smile on your Valentine’s face and make for a truly memorable tradition for years to come.


The cost of a dozen red roses seems to increase every year. Red roses are beautiful, but only last a limited time. How about a beautifully made faux rose table arrangement? They are so realistic and will grace any Valentine’s Day dinner table. With some carefully arranged candles you can easily make a gorgeous centerpiece.

You can also adorn your an interior wall with a heart shaped faux red hydrangea wreath. Once again, red mini lights accenting the wreath would make a gorgeous Valentine’s Day decoration anywhere inside your home.

Either of these faux rose ideas will cost the same or maybe even less than real roses and your Valentine gets to treasure them for years to come.

Yes, chocolates and red roses are definitely the traditional way of Valentine’s Day gift giving and celebrating. This year, stand out from the rest and decorate with unique lighting, a great new twist on balloons and some exquisite faux roses to give your Valentine a truly romantic Valentine’s Day they’ll remember. They’ll have keepsakes to cherish for years to come and you’ve made some wonderful and lasting memories.
