Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year. Usually, we’d suggest romantic getaways to Paris or an idyllic hotel stay in London, but this year we’ll be celebrating the day of lurve at home. On the sofa. Where we’ve been since March last year pretty much. Some people might want to bow out of celebrations, but some might be so madly in love they want to make a declaration of love. We’ve compiled a list of Valentine’s Day home decoration ideas; we’re talking lavish balloon arches packed with pink and red balloons, heart-shaped confetti, rose petals, the lot.
