Valentine’s Day Inspired Decor
Although February is the month of hearts, chocolates and flowers, you can still achieve a warm and cozy feel without the feminine or pink decorations that Valentine’s Day is known for. Whether you are sharing the love during this special day with your family, friends or significant others, create an air of romance and warmth at the most inviting space in your home—around your fireplace.
V-Day for Two
Warm your Valentine’s heart with a special menu and a cozy living room. Relax around a warm fireplace like our romantic yet modern Manhattan fireplace mantel decorated with memories you’ve made together. Fill frames with pictures of you two and take a walk down memory lane as you enjoy a warm meal by a warm fireplace. Add a touch of green with some small plants and red roses that are as vibrant as your love for each other. Place a few candles in front of a mirror to add a romantic flair or a feathered boa in lieu of a garland for a sensual vibe. Here is some design inspiration to get you started:
As you start to unwind in front of your fireplace, enjoy a rich, decadent dish and a romantic dessert as the perfect indulgence for your Valentine’s Day. Consider these:
Three Cheese Crostini with Honey | Pork Chops with Caramelized Apples and Arugula | Romantic Brownie Sundaes
Make your celebration a family affair this Valentine’s Day. Share stories of appreciation and a meal made with love for your family around a cast stone fireplace mantel. While your hearth fills your room with warmth, use fun decorations around your fireplace mantel to fill your hearts with love. Need some decoration inspiration?

If you have space above your mantel, how about using a large picture frame or bulletin board to post Valentine’s Day cards created by your children? It might be fun to create a garland of love tokens you’ve received or one you can repurpose using pom poms and textured paper! A cast stone fire place mantel like our Montgomery has the clean lines and elegance of a few curves that serve as the perfect foundation to display your love for your family and friends. Add a sweet touch to your night by filling large vases or bottles with your favorite candy-coated chocolates or hard candy. Don’t forget to indulge in these edible decorations on this day of indulgences!
Speaking of indulgences, how about these delicious and warm Valentine’s Day meals to share with your loved ones around an equally warm fireplace (you can even have your kids customize each recipe to their tastes):
