Whatever Floats Your Love Boat

The beauty of a bathtub is that it can be enjoyed both sensually and visually.

Fill the bathtub with unexpected surprises for splash of romance this Valentine’s Day. It’s a perfect last minute idea that looks like it took days of dedication.

Let rose petals lead the path of love from land to sea. Sprinkle petals across the bathroom floor and gently float them in the water. Roses should be incorporated in Valentine’s Day some way, but don't always have to be given the same way. The petals will add vibrant color and texture to the bathroom while completing the picture perfect romance scene.

Feel guilty for destroying beautiful roses? This will be remembered much longer than the average bouquet of flowers.

Rose petals too expensive? Try...

  • Fewer petals. The amount is your discretion
  • A less expensive flower with large, colorful petals. Florists will advise you with the best option.
  • Fake rose petals. This allows you to reuse and recreate at a later date.

Melt your honey’s heart with floating candles.

Floating candles give the bathroom warmth and romantic lighting. Floating heart candles, either plain or available with sayings on them add an extra touch to the theme of love.

Saving the best “floater” for last is a message in a bottle. Make the bathtub personal and express your feelings through writing. When the candles burn out and the water is drained, a letter in a bottle can be saved forever. Little bottles are found at any craft store. Not enough time to make it to the craft store? Just use an empty wine or champagne bottle and make sure the cork is back in tight.
