Use your creativity and experiment to add more fun to your decor for the Valentines Day, say experts. Mridul Jain, Interior expert at UrbanClap.com and Sameer A.M., Founder and CEO – Bonito Designs, tell you how:
* DIY wall strings/garlands: You can make your heart shaped wall garlands or with personal messages of the colours that matches your scheme. You can also go for colourful fringes which are so on trend this season.
* Wall art, DIY hangings and chandeliers: Pep-up your wall with the 3D hearts made out of simple technique with paper. Or make an arch with balloons. Make curtains made out of pom-poms or little paper hearts. You can also deck up your dining table with a chandelier made out of these.
* Table supplements: Set up your table with candles and flower wreaths. Or even a vase filled with stick with hearts.

* Room decor: Make your room super cosy with balloons hanging with your memorable picture while some candles and fairytale lights lighting up your room. You can always choose stuffed pillows matching your colour theme to make it look perkier. Blow up pictures of your valentine that you may not have shown to him/her and have them clipped on the fairy lights that are running across the room.
* Balcony: A balcony can use in a way with minimal things. Throw two cosy puffs white in colour with nice pink cushions and a nice cosy blanket which could be used for seating. Have those warm LED strip lights running overhead and across the plants if you have pots in the balcony. Rent a barbecue and grill together/ drink of your choice, create fun games or get a plain canvas and have your story on the canvas using colours of your choice.
* Living area: A plain white cloth dyed in red colour could be used as a spread for the low seating arrangement with white cushions. A centre table with a glass top is also not difficult.
A broad base pot painted and filled with pebbles with a glass top would act as a great table for your spread for the day and an empty alcohol bottle which could be painted and used as a vase with white and red flowers.
One could have rose petals over the table with 2 wine glasses red and white in colour which are not transparent along with wine. The source of light could be candles which could be made from scented crayons with the colour of their choice which again would work out much cheaper than the ones you get in the market.
* Bedroom: Have a wooden tray with two wine glasses and an orchid flower to go with the colour. Use lights to keep the environment warm.
