We wanted to do something different from the same-old Valentines Day ideas this year. You won’t find hearts or pink candies here, but you will find Valentines Day ideas for a celebration to remember long after February 14!
Whether you’re feeling friendly, romantic, or downright sexy, you can use our tips and suggestions whenever you want to celebrate someone you love. You’ll want to bookmark this post so you can use these ideas anytime of year!
A few of our signature collections inspired us to offer unique Valentines Day ideas, decorations, and menus that celebrate love in all its shapes and forms. Come see what we have in store!
Valentines Day ideas for couples: a romantic indoor picnic
Instead of dealing with reservations at busy restaurant, plan a romantic dinner at home for you and your special someone. Rev up the romance by treating your sweetie to a romantic indoor picnic. Our Spice Route collection inspires an intimate, romantic meal. You’ll impress your special guy or gal with such a romantic gesture.
Every good picnic needs a proper picnic blanket. For this romantic Valentines dinner, use our lightweight bedspread as a picnic blanket. (In case you’re wondering, it’s easy to launder!)
Whether your picnic takes place directly on top of the picnic blanket or by the coffee table (dressed in said picnic blanket), you’ll be on the floor. With that in mind, get comfortable by propping up on on couple of large pillows covered in these spicy red pillow shams.
For a fun twist on a traditional Valentines Day idea, present your love with a bouquet in a charming basket. This is the perfect rustic touch for a romantic picnic.
You simply must have candlelight at this meal! These candles add the right kind ambiance. Better yet, because they’re flameless, you won’t have to worry about anything catching on fire if you accidentally knock one over (!).
On the menu: Play on the theme of Spice Route by serving your favorite spicy finger foods. Think jerk chicken…sushi with ginger and wasabi…shish kebabs. Don’t forget a bottle of crisp white wine to tame the heat! For dessert, offer luscious mango slices, fresh ginger cake bites, or your favorite chocolates. Of course, you can always choose to go the traditional route with a platter small sandwiches, antipasto, cheese, crackers, and wine. This romantic picnic will be a feast for the senses!
Family-friendly Valentines Day: Hawaiian luau
One look at our Tropical Garden print will have you longing for a beach vacation. Since most families feel ready for a getaway by mid-February, bring the feeling of a tropical holiday to your Valentine’s celebration with a luau! Easy-going, vibrant, and relaxed, a Hawaiian Valentines Day is a great way to celebrate love with your family.
Featuring deep red hibiscus blossoms, our large floral tablecloth brings the spirit of aloha to your festive Valentines Day party. (Also available in round sizes.)
If your family likes to keep things more on the casual side–or if you just have a gorgeous wooden table you’d like to show off–try using this floral table runner at your Hawaiian luau.

Whip up a batch of banana milkshakes or virgin daiquiris. Consider mai tais for the adults, and go ahead–bring out the limbo stick!
Galentine’s Day: mimosa brunch
Show your friends how much you love them by inviting them over for a Galentine’s Day celebration! We’ve chosen a pretty purple tablecloth as the inspiration for this Galentine’s Day party. Our Victorian Lilac collection feels feminine, sophisticated, and fun–just like you and your girlfriends. It suggests a Galentine’s Day that’s elegant and relaxed, and so a mimosa brunch comes to mind.
Our floral and ogee print speaks to an age of comfort, style, and luxury. Spread this purple tablecloth over your dining table for a Galentine’s Day mimosa brunch fit for a queen! (Also available in rectangle sizes.)
Set out cloth dinner napkins and your Galentine’s Day guests will know that this is a special occasion, indeed.
A low centerpiece lets the conversation (and mimosas!) flow. Filled with white roses, lavender waxflower, and ivy, this Valentines Day centerpiece looks grand when placed atop Victorian Lilac.
As a party favor or sweet gift for your sweet friends, place a chocolate bar with dried blueberries at each place setting.
On the menu: It’s time to celebrate friendship, pamper yourselves, and have some fun! Spend more time with your girlfriends by serving dishes that you can make ahead of time. A breakfast casserole, fruit salad, and cinnamon rolls would be perfect. You could also set out a bagel buffet with sweet and savory toppings. Of course, this is a mimosa brunch, so have plenty of champagne and orange juice on hand!
Celebrate with friends: a delectable dessert bar
Orange Blossom prompts us to treat the sweet people in our lives with something as just as lush and sweet. The options are endless with a dessert bar, and you can choose Valentines decorations that are as fancy as or casual as you wish. At a Valentines Day party like this, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your friends and loved ones.
Cover your buffet, table, or kitchen island with our floral table runner. Sunny and sweet, it provides cheerful color and texture at your dessert bar.
Sit down, catch up on life, and indulge in tasty treats. With desserts in hand and bright Orange Blossom at the table, you’ll have a positively joyous and memorable occasion underway!
Fill with fresh fruit (to dip in fondue, perhaps) or an assortment of wrapped chocolates and you’ll have a gorgeous centerpiece for a Valentine’s Day table.
A Valentines dessert party needs a dessert display, and this marble and brass stand showcases your sweets in a beautiful way.
On the menu: From caramels and cookies to cupcakes, baklava, or cheesecake bites, your Valentines Day dessert bar is only limited to your imagine. Have on hand a variety of beverages, like ice water, coffee, tea, milk, or whatever pairs best with your treats.
Valentines Day Ideas For You: Shower Yourself With Love
We hear a lot about self-care these days, and it’s not to be overlooked since taking good care of yourself is essential for your happiness and well-being. Whether or not you host a Valentines celebration for others, be sure to carve out some time for you this year. Pamper yourself with an indulgent bath–you deserve it!
