Happy Valentine’s Day, wine cellar buddies! So how are you planning on spending this romantic day? Naturally, with us, there’s always going to be wine involved. After all, what’s hearts’ day without a fantastic bottle or maybe two? But popping open a bottle isn’t the only thing you should do. Make this romantic occasion even more memorable with some wine-inspired decor. Here are some terrific concepts you can try out not just today but for the rest of the month of love:
Inexpensive yet classy centerpieces
Okay, so the romantic vibes are definitely in the air this month. Whether you’re planning an intimate dinner for two or a sumptuous meal for the entire family, some wine-inspired centerpieces are in order. We absolutely love this one which totally takes a leaf out of Beauty And The Beast. All you need to do is gather a few wineglasses you don’t use anymore – so don’t get hasty and throw the old ones out. Grab your favorite blooms (plastic flowers are okay, too) and carefully cut off the stems. Mix some water with either Sprite, a penny, salt, crushed aspirin or charcoal and put inside a bottle sprayer. Spray your cut blooms so they’ll last longer. Cover them with upturned wineglasses! To make it fancier embellish the stem of the wineglass and top the base with a candle or fruits.
Improvised floral arrangements
Of course, Valentine’s Day won’t be complete without some beautiful floral arrangements. But instead of taking the lazy route and buying pre-arranged bouquets, take the time for some DIY ones. Not only will these look way better, but they will reflect your feelings as well. A personal favorite of ours is the shoe floral arrangement. It’s like one way of telling your significant other that you’re “head over heels in love” with them. Simply arrange your favorite blooms in a shoe and embellish with leaves, twigs, and branches. To keep them fresh, spray with hairspray. Choose a man’s shoe or boot and give it to your hubby or boyfriend, or dad as well!
Revolutionize your dessert presentation
For sure, dessert will a highly anticipated course in your V-day meal. In keeping with the wine-inspired theme, serve your sweet concoctions in a unique way. One popular recommendation is by serving dessert in wineglasses or champagne flutes. For example, instead of the usual fruit cups, prepare yours in a wineglass or champagne flute for a fancier charm. To add more drama to the presentation, use glasses in various sizes and heights. As an extra sweet touch, fill up transparent or semi-transparent empty wine bottles with candies, such as cinnamon hearts. Your dinner table will have never looked so adorable! ^_^
