Ten Tips for a Romantic &
Memorable Valentine's Day
earliest origins, Valentines Day has been associated with love.
Centuries ago, the Romans celebrated a feast every February
called Lupercalia. The celebration included a ritual for
matching young, single men and women. Names were placed in a
box, a drawing was held and couples randomly matched together
were partners for a year - after that it was up to them.
Valentine's Day gift you choose for your loved one and how you
decide to spend the day says a lot about the quality of your
relationship, so give something that has real meaning to you.
Gifts from the heart don't have to be expensive. Since the
traditional gifts of flowers or chocolates don't last forever,
here are ten creative ways to express your love.
Create your own Valentines Day card. Compose a poem or
an expression of love that expresses your
Create a "recollection collection" scrapbook filled with
favorite photographs, love letters, keepsakes
occasions, and cherished mementos.
Make a CD of your favorite songs as a couple including love
songs that you both enjoy listening to. Buy some
CDs, classic videos or DVDs and wrap them all
Jewelry is always a favorite. For the woman in your life, buy
a heart-shaped locket and put a picture of
yourself in it.
Personalize the locket with your loved one's
initials so she'll
have something to wear that's hers alone. Package
it in a
heart-shaped box or tied to fresh flowers. For
your man, a
good choice is the classic sterling silver ID
bracelet or cuff
links with his name or initials custom-engraved.
Give silk or glass flowers, which will last forever. If your
beloved has a green thumb, give a flowering plant
to put in
the garden to enjoy year after year.
Prepare your loved one's favorite dinner and serve it on a
romantically set table and dine by candlelight on
Day. For the sweetheart with a sweet tooth, make
decadent dessert such as a chocolate fondue with
chocolate mixed with a touch of heavy cream, and
with fruit or cookies.
Give the man in your life a personalized gift for his favorite
hobby such as personalized golf or tennis balls
that say, "I
love you," "You're a hit!" or "Be mine," or a
humidor for cigars.
The gift of togetherness is precious, given today's busy
lifestyles. Plan a romantic, surprise
weekend travel getaway.
Take lessons together to share in each other's
dancing, cooking or sailing. Hire a personal trainer to
you to exercise together, or visit a spa
together. Spend a
night out at the theater and have dinner at a
romantic candlelit restaurant.
If you plan to propose on Valentines Day, hide the
engagement ring in a box of candy or at the
bottom of a
heart shaped flute filled with champagne. Buy a
monogrammed champagne flutes and make a toast
your favorite bubbly.
you want to propose at home, sprinkle rose petals around
the house. Place heart-shaped candles
around your home
to create the right mood. Then, enjoy
a quiet, romantic
evening. Create a banner that says,
"Will you marry me?"
and hang it outside her home.
15 Secrets of Home Staging
your homes strengths, downplay its weaknesses and appeal to the
greatest possible pool of prospective buyers with these
Bye Bye Clutter
The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for
sale is to get rid of clutter. Make a house rule that for every
new item that comes in, an old one has to leave. One of the
major contributors to a cluttered look is having too much
furniture. When professional stagers descend on a home being
prepped for market, they often whisk away as much as half the
owners furnishings, and the house looks much bigger for it. You
don't have to whittle that drastically, but take a hard look at
what you have and ask yourself what you can live without.
2. Furniture Groupings
There's a common
belief that rooms will feel larger and be easier to use if all
the furniture is pushed against the walls, but that isn't the
case. Instead, furnish your space by floating furniture away
from walls. Reposition sofas and chairs into cozy conversational
groups, and place pieces so that the traffic flow in a room is
obvious. Not only will this make the space more user-friendly,
but it will open up the room and make it seem larger.
permission to move furniture, artwork and accessories among
rooms on a whim. Just because you bought that armchair for the
living room doesn't mean it won't look great anchoring a sitting
area in your bedroom. And try perching a little-used dining-room
table in front of a pretty window, top it off with buffet lamps
and other accessories, and press it into service as a beautiful
writing desk or library table.
have a room that serves only to gather junk, repurpose it into
something that will add to the value of your home. The simple
addition of a comfortable armchair, a small table and a lamp in
a stairwell will transform it into a cozy reading spot. Or drape
fabric on the walls of your basement, lay inexpensive rubber
padding or a carpet remnant on the floor and toss in a few cushy
pillows. Voila - a new meditation room or yoga studio.
the things that make staged homes look so warm and welcoming is
great lighting. As it turns out, many of our homes are
improperly lighted. To remedy the problem, increase the wattage
in your lamps and fixtures. Aim for a total of 100 watts for
each 50 square feet. Don't depend on just one or two fixtures
for room, either. Make sure you have three types of lighting:
ambient (general or overhead), task (pendant, under-cabinet or
reading) and accent (table and wall).
a room appear to be bigger that it is, paint it the same color
as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining
room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big
space. And make a sunporch look bigger and more inviting by
painting it green to reflect the color of nature. Another design
trick: If you want to create the illusion of more space, paint
the walls the same color as your drapery. It will give you a
seamless and sophisticated look.
Neutral and Appealing
a living room a fresh neutral color helps tone down any dated
finishes in the space. Even if you weaned on off-white
walls, take a chance and test a quart of paint in a warm,
neutral hue. These days, the definition of neutral extends way
beyond beige, from warm tans and honeys to soft blue-greens. As
for bold colors, they have a way of reducing offers, so go with
neutrals in large spaces.
afraid to use dark paint in a powder room, dining room or
bedroom. A deep tone on the walls can make the space more
intimate, dramatic and cozy. And you don't have to go whole hog
- you can have built-in bookcases or niches, experiment with
painting the insides a color that will make them pop - say, a
soft sage green to set off the white pottery displayed within.
home is like most, the art is hung in a high line encircling
each room. Big mistake. Placing your pictures, paintings and
prints in such stereotypical spots can render them almost
invisible. Art displayed creatively makes it stand out and shows
off your space. So break up that line and vary the patterning
Mixing the right
accessories can make a room more inviting. When it comes to
eye-pleasing accessorizing, odd numbers are preferable,
especially three. Rather than lining up a trio of accessories in
a row, imagine a triangle and place one object at each point.
Scale is important, too, so in your group of three be sure to
vary height and width, with the largest item at the back and the
smallest in the front. For maximum effect, group accessories by
color, shape, texture or some other unifying element, staggers
Staged homes are
almost always graced with fresh flowers and pricey orchid
arrangements, but you can get a similar effect simply by raiding
your yard. Budding magnolia clippings or unfurling fern warms up
your décor on chilly autumn days and holly branches heavy with
berries look smashing in winter.
Serene and Inviting
Create a relaxing
bedroom setting with luxurious linens and soft colors that will
make a potential home buyer want to hand out. Bedroom staging
trick: If you don't have the money to buy a new bed, just get
the frame, buy an inexpensive air mattress and dress it up with
neutral-patterned bedding. And remember to declutter. By
cleaning out your closets, your showing off your storage space,
which sells houses - it always ranks high on buyers priority
cant afford new cabinets, just get new doors and drawer fronts.
Then paint everything to match and add new hardware. And instead
of replacing the entire dishwasher, you may be able to get a new
front panel. Check with the manufacturer to see if replacements
are available for your model. If not, laminate paper, which goes
on like contact paper, can be used to re-cover the existing
Unfinished projects can scare off potential buyers, so finish
them. Missing floorboards and large cracks in the sidewalk on
the way to the door tend to be a red flag, for example, and they
cost you less to fix than buyers might deduct from the asking
tile professionally painted can make a bedroom look brand new.
And accessorizing can make buyers feel like they are in a spa.
Put out items like rolled-up towels, decorative baskets and
candles. It's a great way to create a polished look, and it
doesn't cost much to do.
