Adding a few touches to your dining table can be a fun and frugal way to decorate for Valentine’s Day, and plates take little space to store between seasons. To jazz up your dining space even more, combine seasonal dishes with inexpensive all white or red dinnerware and colorful linens. And for a fun project with the kids, make your own decorations from standard paper plates.

If you are frugal and crafty, it’s easy and cheap to make your own garland. But if time is of the essence, buying premade garland can still be an inexpensive way to go. Dangle from a doorframe, wrap around a bedpost or chair backs, or use it traditional-style across your mantle.

Make your own wreath with paper flowers or roses, or purchase a premade wreath to hang inside or out. For a stronger effect, use mini-wreaths in multiples throughout your space. They look beautiful hung along dining chair backs or dangling from windows and doorknobs.

Flowers and chocolates are the quintessential Valentine’s Day romance item. If you don't have a special someone, send yourself a bouquet early this holiday season, then use it throughout the month to add a decorative floral touch to your home.
