Love is in the air, but that doesn’t mean you have to create extravagant plans to show your special someone how much they mean to you. Sometimes the best Valentine’s Day plans are the ones you simply spend at home—in the Lennar home you love and with the people that matter most to you. Here are just a few sweet ideas on how to spend Valentine’s Day without having to leave your front door.
DIY Valentine’s Day decor & cards.
You don’t have to wait until the big day to add some love to your home. From heart shaped wreaths for your front door constructed out of coffee filters, to a burlap heart picture pieced together from all those extra buttons you’ve been hoarding, there are a variety of clever and cost-effective ways to get in the spirit. Additionally, skip the trite and store-bought cards and make your own. You’ll discover just how creative you can be, plus it might awaken the wordsmith in you!
Eat in, not out.
The last thing you need on the most romantic night of the year is a headache from all the work it takes to make Valentine’s Day plans. Avoid the hassle that comes with eating out: making a reservation weeks in advance, hiring a babysitter, driving through traffic plus the exorbitant prices and packed restaurants. Instead, put your upscale Everything’s Included® kitchen to work and show your significant other your culinary prowess.
Your home is designed for entertaining with a gorgeous kitchen that flows to the dining room and great room effortlessly, so make this Valentine’s Day a party and invite some of your closest friends over for a fun-filled evening. It’s also a great excuse to show off your beautiful home!
Go dancing – at home.
Move the couches to open your living area, put on some music and dance with your significant other! Recreate your wedding dance or a special moment, relish in the memories and reflect on how far you’ve come together.
Turn it into a family night.
Valentine’s Day lands on a Thursday this year, so include the whole gang and make it a family night. Grab some popcorn, snacks, watch a movie and play some board games after.
You love your home, but do you know the best hiding spots? Create a scavenger hunt for your significant other and watch them run around the house! Feel free to invite the kids to partake in this exciting activity, too!
What could be more romantic than gazing at the stars at night? Wait for the kids to go to bed, lay a blanket out on the grass and watch the stars under the moonlight.
