Valentine’s Day is only a few short days away, and everybody loves a good themed event. But with all of the plastic cupids and aluminium confetti available, it’s harder to walk that fine line between Classy Themed Soirée and Catastrophic Cupid Nightmare. Here are some of our favourite trendy Valentine’s Day decorations to add that special, romantic touch to your themed event.

Let’s do our part and keep Valentine’s Day classy with sophisticated decor

1. Play With Colour

This beautiful paper garland above from MailboxHappiness on Etsy is a great way to enjoy those Valentines love hearts while playing with different colours and textures. Who says Valentine’s Day has to be pink and red?

2. Paper Lanterns

A beautiful alternative to pink tea light holders, these little paper lanterns from Not On The Highstreet are great for lighting up your balcony, guestbook station, and even your buffet tables. Play around with different coloured bags for varied effects.


3. Say It In Another Language

Steer clear of ‘LOVE’ themed banners and opt for foreign prints instead. This modern ‘I Love You’ print from NeueGraphic in different languages adds a touch of the exotic.


4. Romantic Roses

Why buy red roses when you can have your favourite romantic novels turned into roses for your centrepieces? This clever paper roses from dragonflies do just that. So unique!


5. Lace It Up

We love mason jars here at Eventsage. Perfect for Valentine themed cocktails, or great as cutlery holders, straw containers, and party favours too. These little beauties from BellaChicCreation will add a definite touch of elegance to your Valentines themed event.


6. Cupid’s Arrows

Ditch the cupids. Go for the arrows! These bright decorations from MineralandMatter will add a pop of colour to your event.


7. Sprinkle the Potpourri

Switch things up a bit and swap your love heart confetti for this soothing scented lavender rose potpourri from Whole Foods. Sprinkle it lightly around your centrepieces for a refined touch.


8. Leave Little Love Notes

Leaving little love themed notes like these cards from CandiLovesPaper for your guests is a thoughtful touch to leave at their table or scattered around for all to enjoy.


Sage Words

Have fun with your Valentine’s Day decorations this year, and be sure to mix it up! No matter the scale of your event, there are some really beautiful ways to decorate your venue in sophisticated style.
