Valentine’s Fireplace Decor Tips

When decorating a fireplace for Valentine’s Day, a key aspect is the thematic resonance of love and warmth. The use of traditional Valentine’s Day colors like red, pink, white, and gold can set the mood appropriately.

Balance is critical in the display; if a large item is placed on one side of the mantel, it’s essential to counter it with something of a similar visual weight on the other side. The decor should accentuate the fireplace as a focal point of the room, but not overwhelm it.

Incorporating symbols of love, such as hearts or Cupid, can also add a festive touch. Natural elements like flowers or branches can bring a touch of life and freshness. Lastly, soft lighting or candles can further enhance the ambiance, creating an inviting and romantic atmosphere.

Valentine’s Fireplace Decor Ideas

Easy fireplace decor for Valentine’s Day

Before we share some excellent ideas from Instagram and Pinterest, here are some Valentine’s Day fireplace decor ideas to consider.

Most of these ideas work whether you have a wood-burning stove or fireplace, a gas fireplace, or an electric fireplace. Just ensure your decorations are not going to be too close to the heat if your appliance is on.

1. Romantic candles

Create a warm and romantic ambiance with scented candles and candle holders arranged in front of the fireplace.

Or, instead of scented candles, add an enjoyable scent to the room using essential oils, reed diffusers, herbs, flowers, or room sprays.

2. Heart garlands

Hang heart-shaped garlands from the mantel for a festive touch.

These decorative wreaths can be made from flowers, leaves, ribbons, or cardstock and hung from the mantel. Fresh flowers aren’t ideal if the fire is lit as they will wilt.

3. Rose petals

Sprinkle rose petals on the hearth for a touch of romance. Rose petals are the epitome of Valentine’s Day romance and you can’t go wrong by sprinkling them over and around the hearth.

4. Love letters

Write love letters to each other and display them on the mantel. If you want to get really cheesy, read them out loud to each other in front of the fire.

5. Love signs

Decorate the mantel with signs that spell out “love” or “Valentine.”

You can purchase these types of signs everywhere around Valentine’s Day, or, if you have a Cricut or other cutting machine, you can make your own Valentine’s Signs. Even the smaller and cheaper Cricut Joy can be used to make banners, signs, and other decorations.

6. Heart wreaths

Hang a heart-shaped wreath on the fireplace screen. Again, these can be made using a cutting machine at home, cut free-hand, or purchased from a store.

7. Red and pink accents

Add pops of red and pink throughout the room with flowers, pillows, and other decor items. Valentine’s is all about these fantastic colors so make the most of this opportunity to use them.

8. String lights

Wrap the mantel with string lights for a soft, romantic glow. These make a good alternative to candles if you’d prefer not to use them, or they’ll complement them nicely.

9. Love seat

Arrange a cozy love seat or bench in front of the fireplace for a romantic spot to cuddle.

This is especially important if the fire is going, and I must say, a wood fire is the most romantic type of fire. If it’s warm enough, you could even get out and decorate around the fire pit!

10. Family photos

Display family photos in heart-shaped frames on the mantel for a personal touch. This is a fairly intimate idea, so best not for new couples – they might run a mile!

Valentine’s Fireplace Decorating Ideas

While it’s nice to get the fireplace nice for Valentine’s, don’t neglect the rest of the room as well.

You might like to put up more decorative lighting, flowers, balloons, and surprise gifts. Make sure you have plenty of wine and chocolate, the right music, and a delicious meal planned as well.

It goes without saying that you should take care of any bad fireplace smells beforehand. Let us know what you’re doing for Valentine’s down below, and how you’ve decided to decorate your fireplace!
