Vintage decorations for Valentine’s Day


Celebrated on the 12th of June, throughout Brazil, the Valentine’s Day. It is a date celebrated by couples in love, and therefore deserves a special decoration, which helps to increase the atmosphere of romance. That’s why vintage decor can be a great choice to surprise your loved one.

Of course, some decorations are priced higher, but that doesn’t mean you can come up with ideas that can come close to vintage decor especially when it comes to a special occasion.

Some women ask if vintage is just temporary or can be used permanently. Well, let’s answer like this, I really like vintage decor and I’ve been using it in my house for a long time, before it became a trend in decor like today.

Another thing that changes the decoration of the house is usually married women, that’s why it’s not cheap to keep changing decorations, unless of course you have a “pot of gold” (which is not my case), so I chose to leave it permanently and whenever I can I use a few different things to style or improve my vintage decor.

Is it tacky to use vintage as decor? OF COURSE NOT. The idea is to leave the house romantic, like a moment for two. Entering the house and feeling relaxed, comfortable and passionate is what this type of decoration is all about.

Among the different styles of decoration, vintage is an excellent option for the date of Valentine’s Day, as it refers to a more nostalgic air, in addition to transmitting tranquility and delicacy and an atmosphere of affection and passion.
