Roses are Valentine’s Day symbol, and they make for the perfect Valentine decorations for your home. This year, use this tried-and-true symbol of love and decorate your space with a rose theme. Here are a few ideas for decorations and Valentine’s Day gifts in keeping with this theme.

Rose lights are stunning Valentine decorations that will help create a soft light, transforming the look of a space and infusing it with a sweet, whimsical glow. All you need to make these rose lights are organza roses and fairy lights. Use a sharp craft knife to make a neat slit at the back of the organza flower and thread a light bulb through the hole. Do this for a string of lights, alternating red and pink roses to create rose string lights. You can also use these string lights as outdoor décor to infuse your porch or patio with Valentine’s day spirit.

Make a lovely centerpiece and place setting for Valentine’s decorations for your holiday table. For the centerpiece, take two vases, one that’s clear and big enough to hold the smaller vase. Fill the smaller one with water and arrange light and dark pink roses in it, and place inside the larger vase. Fill up the space between the vases with red candy hearts. For the place settings, choose cherry red plates placed on lace paper doilies. Fold the napkins in the shape of an envelope and seal with a paper rosette.

To make rose-themed Valentine ‘s Day gifts, put together a gift bag with mouthwatering edible goodies. Take caramel apples and cover them in red heart-shaped sprinkles. Dress them in a polka-dotted pink bow across the dowel and embellish with satin rose in the center. Decorate a white boat platter to hold three caramel apples.

If you’d like to pamper someone this Valentine ‘s Day, consider rose-themed spa gift baskets as Valentine ‘s Day gifts. Put rose bath salts, rose body lotion, rose shower gel, rose-printed towel, floral stationery, a rose-scented decorative candle, and rose liqueur chocolates into the basket. Top the basket with handmade paper roses and a red raffia bow.

Use these ‘rosy’ tips to create Valentine ‘s Day decorations and gifts that your loved ones will cherish.
