Make it Personal

Think about incorporating memories into your fireplace display. Beautifully framed pictures, inspirational words, or even mementoes from a favorite trip can help set the tone for a night full of romance. You can frame black and white pictures from your honeymoon or getaway to spark romantic conversation. You can even frame concert or plane tickets from a great trip to stroll down Memory Lane. The more personal the decorations the more impact they’ll have.

Finishing Touches

If dinner is part of your Valentine’s Day plans, why not set a lovely table for two next to your gorgeous fireplace? It doesn’t have to be fancy, but throw on a tablecloth to make it feel special. A small table makes for intimate conversation and body language. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a romantic evening. Use what you have on hand for your fireplace on Valentines Day and make the night a celebration of your love and affection for each other

    Extra points, though, for those who dig out the honeymoon or wedding photos. And huge points for a fireside meal. Even carry-out by the fireplace counts!
