Are you looking for ways to turn your Ottawa Apartment into a romantic hotspot for you and your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? Creating the perfect fun, flirty and picturesque atmosphere can be a challenge. We’ve got you covered with some classic and unique suggestions to try this year:


Although this may seem obvious, try switching it up from the typical red roses. Orchids, tulips, Gerber daisies, and lilies can all be beautiful and affordable options to dress up your apartment this Valentine’s Day.

Bonus Tip: If you’re feeling extra creative, try opting for a succulent as a gift to your loved one. These are easy to care for and live much longer than a bouquet.


Make your sweetheart feel extra special with heart-shaped balloons. These can be a fun and flashy way to spruce up any room.


Set the mood and freshen the air by lighting candles around your apartment for Valentine’s Day. Whether you opt for delicate tea lights or your partner’s go-to scent, candles are a simple way to bring romance into your home.

Bonus Tip: Heat up your relationship but not your apartment. Never leave lit candles unattended.

Photo Wall

Say I love you by printing off photos of special memories with your beloved and creating a wall collage. Arrange them in a heart showcasing the most significant moments in the centre. Then, you can go through the pictures and relive those memories together.

Bonus Tip: Create cute captions for the photos saying why each is special to you.


Ever heard the saying “toss kindness around like confetti”? Well, this Valentine’s Day, toss actual confetti around like confetti. Head over to your local craft or party store to pick up some red, white, pink or heart-shaped confetti to sprinkle around your apartment for a touch of colour.

Bonus Tip: Avoid difficult cleanup by tossing your confetti on hard surfaces only.

Candy Dish

Satisfy your sweetheart’s sweet tooth by placing Valentine-themed candy bowls throughout your apartment. Candy hearts, cinnamon hearts, and heart-shaped chocolates are sure to sweeten up your home.

Remember, Valentine’s Day is about spending time with your loved one and letting them know how special they are to you. Happy day of love to you and yours from all of us at!
