LUX / DECOR >> Romance on the DIY round up

Desanka Fasiska

No judgement. I get it... we all get too busy sometimes. Totally forgot to plan ahead and make that reservation for Valentine's Day. Don't worry homie, I got you. I've rounded up 5 DIY on the fly romantic ideas you can pull off in just a couple hours! She or he will be totally impressed by your innovative and creative romantic side! 

  1. DIY beach cabana:  We Californians pretty much have zero excuse. We have access to literally the most romantic scenery that nature can provide -the beach and epic sunsets. All you need to do is grab as many blankets and pillows as you can shove into you car. Find some big sticks and twine and don't forget that thermos (be sure its a thermos and not a bottle. getting arrested for drinking on the beach... not so romantic)

  2. Go camping in your backyard:  If you have outdoor space at home this is a great quick save! In fact tips 2, 3 and 4 can be done a la cart or you can put them all together for an extra special romantic evening at home in your yard! Not having a tent is no excuse! They are like $30 at your local sporting goods store. Or you can gerry-rig one fort style using pillows and blankets from inside.

  3. Outdoor movie in the backyard:  This one is my favorite but admittedly not the easiest if you don't already own a projector. I know I don't (yet) but I have plenty of friends who do! So ask around and see who will help you pull-off this super romantic DIY! Don't forget the lighting. Outdoor lights in votives or string lights are key to kicking up the romantic feeling. And be sure to chose your movie wisely... Get your chick-flick, rom-com or classic on!

  4. Dine alfresco: Probably the easiest to pull-off of the 3 backyard romance I've listed... So don't phone it in! If you are going to do a romantic dinner outside be sure you really get your romantic decoration as together... having a backyard bonfire and, again, great lighting are beautiful touches. If you are not a cook, don't despair! Just order in or pick some bites from Whole Foods and a bottle of bubbly and you'll be their hero!

  5. Bed fort!: By far the easiest but by far the sexiest! Just grab every sheet or textile from around the house, get some lights, put on some baby-makin' music and dazzle your boo with your romantic moves!
