Valentine’s Day Lighting
Whether you're hosting a Valentine’s Day get-together, organizing a dinner party, or just enjoying a romantic evening at home—lighting can make all the difference in setting the right energy and mood of any room.
Too Many Candles
If you’re thinking romantic lighting, the first thing that comes to mind is candlelight. There’s nothing inherently romantic about candles themselves, but with the wrong strategy you can turn any room into a church’s candle alter or vigil.
Consider the kind of candles you choose to array, tall taper pillars make for the easiest way to light a section without putting out too many of them.
As far as color of the candle, red, pink, and white are usually associated with Valentine’s Day. The reason for that is what these colors usually represent:
Red candles signify: sexual attraction, love, vigor, health, also the color of life.
Pink candles stand for the attraction of affection, winning of love, honor, success, and conquering of evil.
White candles stand for purity, truth, realization of personal power, & spiritual strength.
Light white candles along with red or pink flowers and adornments, the white candles will be enhanced by the other two colors.
As long as you stay on theme, and you don’t over do it with your lighting sources your Valentine’s Day décor will convey the right amount of romance and elegance.
