Why an oak fireplace beam is essential for Valentine’s Day
by Freddie Armstrong
If you’re still struggling to find the perfect present for that someone special this Valentine’s Day, an oak fireplace beam could be just the ticket.
It may not seem like the most romantic gift at first glance (and we’re not saying that a box of chocolates or a bunch of roses wouldn’t go amiss as well) but if you’re looking for something a little different, oak fireplace beams are the way forward.
Not convinced? Carry on reading to discover why an oak beam could be the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ll ever buy…
Decorate your oak fireplace beam for a cosy night in
Who wouldn’t like to come home from work on Valentine’s Day to find their favourite dinner in the oven and the house decorated for a romantic candlelit evening in?
An oak fireplace beam is the perfect place to create a display for any occasion. For Valentine’s Day, think a vase of red roses, some heart-shaped bunting and of course, some candles.
Twinkling fairy lights also look great on top of an oak mantle. They’re also an amazing fire substitute if you haven’t yet managed to open up your fireplace. Just place a few fairy lights on your hearth and spend the evening sipping Champagne with your partner and watching the lights twinkle. Even better, you could collect a few logs and weave the fairy lights around them to create an even more realistic-looking fire.
Snuggle up in front of your fireplace together
Staying in is the new going out. Especially if you want to avoid overpriced meals and sitting so close to other couples that, by the end of the evening, you feel like you know more about their relationships, than you do your own.
Light your wood burner instead and snuggle up in front of your newly adorned oak beam to watch a rom-com. What could be more perfect than that?
It’s practical and romantic
OK, so handing your partner a heavy oak beam might not be the bestValentine’s Day present. But installing it while your partner is out, then decorating it for the evening, makes for a really warm welcome home.
Plus, oak beams last for a long, long time. Which means that every day when your partner sees the oak mantel, for many years to come, they will think of that special Valentine’s Day.
And buying something like oak, which is so strong, is like a parallel to how you feel about your relationship with your other half…
