Romantic Valentine's Day Tree Ideas

2021 is THE year to start making new traditions at-home. If you don't decorate your Christmas tree for Valentine's Day yet, it's the perfect time to start this new tradition. The color combo of this Valentine's Day themed Christmas tree is kind of dreamily vintage... no regrets.

To keep things forever fresh, I decided to continue using my new teal Christmas tree for this romance themed decor.

I am obsessed with how it came out. The best part is that it came together so easily with very simple decorations. 


If you want to turn your Christmas tree into a Valentine tree, you have definitely come to the right place.  I put together some fun Valentine's day Christmas tree ornaments for this look and I'm excited to share. Let me show you how I made this fun transformation so easily.

Here are easy things that I included to make it happen:

CHRISTMAS TREE FOR VALENTINE'S DAY– I'm totally obsessed with my teal tree this year but any tree can work including a traditional green one. It looks even more stunning when the light hits it. This particular shade is fairly hard to find. The main brand that puts it out is Vickerman. If you can grab one, I highly recommend it. Here is the smaller tree that I purchased, here. The full sized are very expensive, so it's little itty bitty tree for now.

The only ones for sale at the moment are very overpriced. Purchasing near Christmas is probably a better bet if you want this color for next year.
More perfect tree colors for this are white or pink if you want to buy something specifically for the occasion.

RED AND WHITE STRIPED RIBBON - One of the first things that I knew I wanted for this tree was the perfect garland.  I couldn't find one that I loved, so I decided to go with this pretty striped ribbon. I cut it into strips and attached it around the tree using pipe cleaner. I adore how pretty it looks.  

HEART ORNAMENTS - One of the most popular Valentine's Day ornaments are hearts of course. You absolutely can't go without. Plus, they really drive the romantic Valentine's day theme home. I used a cute multipack that has a variety of finishes from glitter to matte to offer some variety. These are the heart ornaments that I used.

VALENTINE'S DAY PINATAS - It's no secret that I'm obsessed with piñatas for basically everything. They are just too cute. For my tree topper, I used this heart-shaped piñata. I also love using mini piñatas as ornaments on my trees in case you haven't noticed yet. I instantly fell in love with these adorable lip piñatas. I also had some adorable candy swirl mini pinatas from Christmas and decided to use them for my V-day tree, too.
VALENTINE'S DAY FLORAL PICKS -  I wanted my tree to look very busy although simple. Adding floral picks really helped to do the job. I love these cute heart picks that I found at Michaels.
CUSTOM VALENTINE'S DAY SIGN - I really wanted something for this tree that said "red hot valentine". I considered buying a Cricut so I could make something myself but decided that was too complicated for the moment, so I found a local shop called Teak Lane Designs that makes customized wood signs. I absolutely love how my vision turned out. You can also order custom signs on Etsy, too.

FAUX ROSE BUDS - These affordable little bouquets are all too perfect for this romance theme and I just love how they look. Quick confession. I don't like the color red that much, but I became obsessed with how the aqua teal tree makes it pop. Here are the exact faux rose bud bushes I used.

MR & MRS CAKE TOPPER - Don't laugh, but I used this cake topper to add to the romantic vibe of this tree. Seriously, no regrets. I love it!


Now that I have shared everything that I used to decorate, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you exactly how I put it all together. 

  1. Add the heart piñata as a tree topper. When I add them in place of a traditional topper, I remove the bottom opening where you normally put candy in. Then, I use scissors to make the bottom larger so that I can wiggle it down further on the tree for a balanced look.
  2. Position your sign if you are using one.
  3. Add your garland or ribbon. It's important that this looks nice and balanced throughout your tree before adding your ornaments.
  4. Place your larger featured ornaments like mini piñatas, faux rose buds, etc. before adding smaller ornaments. 
  5. Finally add all of your smaller ornaments to fill in all of the empty spaces until the tree looks nice and full.

UPDATE! While planning for my Easter tree,  I decided to pull out my very first pink Christmas tree.

I decide to swap out my decorations and I totally love it! I figured I would include it to give you more options if you are considering which colored tree to invest in.
