Romantic Ways to Decorate a Hotel Room for Him

Looking to add a little ROMANTIC sizzle to your ho-hum hotel room?

You’re in the right place!

Here’s what you’ll find on this page…

One Sentence Summary:

This page contains the steps needed to decorate a hotel room for a romantic getaway, tips & tricks, easy romantic decoration theme ideas, and common mistakes to keep in mind.

Recommended: Surprisingly Nerdy Things to do in Las Vegas

Step 1: Choose a location (Motel, Bed & Breakfast or Hotel)

Why Choose a Hotel?

Hotels are typically well established and conveniences oriented than other accommodations. They offer high quality amenities, a variety of room styles & sizes, considerate customer service.

Alternatively, hotels are often more expensive than a motel and less personal than a bed & breakfast.

When it comes to decorating for a romantic getaway, a hotel room is the perfect “blank canvas” because of the neutral color themes commonly used and abundance of lighting. Adorn your room with ease and rest assured that when it comes to clean up, as long as you don’t leave an egregious mess, the hospitality staff will take care of it. We recommend verifying an individual hotel’s decoration cleanliness policy before making a reservation.

Also, don’t be afraid to ask for couples benefits! See our recommendations in the Quick Tip below.

  • Quick Tip – Before you check in, ask the hotel what types of couples perks they offer. Many hotels will offer one or many of the following:
    • Room Discount (typically 20%)
    • Upgrading to a larger room or room with a view
    • Couples packages including extra amenities or additional perks
    • Late check out
    • Access to the spa or sauna
    • Decoration packages (the hotel will decorate and clean up for an extra charge)

Why Choose a motel?

Motels are ideal if you need to take a short stop while on the road. Although they offer less amenities, they are often more convenient, private, and inexpensive than a hotel. Additionally, the staff typically have a better pulse on local unique restaurants, activities, and shopping.

When it comes to decorating for a romantic getaway, a motel room should have all basic necessities. Since the standard room décor may not be as quality as other accommodations, you may want to add more decorations to improve the romantic vibe.

Motel staff are typically not as accommodating as hotel staff when it comes to decorating & clean up, so we definitely recommend understanding the facility’s policy before check-in.

  • Quick Tip – Utilize motel staff to make your romantic travel experience extra unique. Make sure to ask them for recommendations in the following areas:
    • Restaurants & shopping
    • Finding local tours or subject matter experts
    • Discovering “locals only” experiences and activities
    • Famous locations to visit in the area

Why Choose a Bed & Breakfast?

Bed & breakfasts are ideal for a relaxing, low stress romantic trip. They tend to have more charming features with amenity offerings that can be either highly unique & personal, or very minimal. You will need to do extra research and coordinate with staff to understand the options.

Since these locations often have small owner-operated staff, they require some extra effort from guests in the form of personal clean up check-out policies. Large messes can yield high fees at checkout.

Step 2: Prep the Room

How do you Set Up a Hotel Room in Secret?

If you’re trying to make your romantic decor a surprise, there are a few approaches you can take:

  • Have someone else decorate the room for you
  • Go early and decorate the room yourself
  • Ask the hotel staff to decorate the room for you
  • Pay a service to decorate the room for you (we recommend Uberoom)

How to Decorate Like a Designer?

The objective of your decorations is to make the hotel room look personalized, inviting and festive.

Before you check in, study pictures of the room from the website or a review site. If there are aspects of the hotel room that you don’t like, then cover them with things that you do like.

For example, common curtains, bedding, pillows, and lighting can easily be disguised with thoughtful embellishments. Bring your own comfortable pillows, purchase a themed throw blanket, or cover the curtains with a quality backdrop.

Further improve the ambiance by appealing to all of the senses: play fun music, open a delicious smelling air freshener (we recommend against candles because they can set off the fire alarm), turn on a themed loop video or picture on the TV, and hang additional mood lighting.

Remember that most hotel rooms come with a coffee pot, microwave, and/or refrigerator. These items can be used to creatively enhance your décor by allowing you to include small touches such as making small desserts, keeping flowers fresh, or cooking small pre-packaged meals.

Step 3: Choose a Theme

The most meaningful romantic themes are based on the relationship you share with your significant other. When planning how to decorate your hotel room, we recommend basing your decorations on shared experiences or interests.

However, sometimes its difficult to find a common interest theme or your significant other wouldn’t appreciate that type of theme.

If that sounds like your situation, then feel free to use one of our Romantic party themes below.

If you’re looking to set a more playful mood for a birthday, see our page on How to Decorate a Hotel Room for a Birthday.

I Love You to Pizzas

Bring some steamy cheesy romance to your hotel room with these creative decoration ideas.

Start by converting your space into a quaint pizza parlor with striped awnings, patterned hanging garden fans, giant pizza balloons, and an inviting banner that says “I Love You to Pizzas”.

Add a few pizza plushy pillows to the bed and a large bouquet of two dozen red roses that practically scream “That’s Amore!”

Set the mood with this Romantic Italian Dinner Playlist on Spotify, a video of the Italian Flag from YouTube, or a 10 Hour Spiderman Italian Song that progressively speeds up. Make a tender gift of a pizza box full of topping themed socks.

Order pizza delivery or toss the pizza poppers into the microwave, open your gummy pizza candies, and let the night melt away as you watch Mystic Pizza or Pizza My Heart.

Transform your hotel space with a pastel burlap pennant banner, “Pancakes and Pajamas” shimmer banner, and sweet strawberry hanging lanterns. Liven the room with fresh cut flowers and a friendly fluffy jumbo teddy bear. Improve the ambiance even more by playing some music from this Spotify playlist and using this Youtube video on the TV.

Add a few snug & warm finishing touches by including some bamboo wood breakfast trays, cushy slippers, and a stimulating New York Times Breakfast in Bed Crossword puzzle. Don’t forget to brew a cup of organic Peruvian coffee to go with it!

All You Need Is Love

Whether your relationship started in the 1970’s or has only existed for 70 minutes, for this romantic trip All You Need is Love and some groovy décor.

Hang the colorful flower power wall decals around the room, psychedelic Abbey Road Beatles poster above the bed, and shiny disco balls from the ceiling. Plug in your “All You Need is Love” neon light and mind-bending lava lamp.

Throw your plush pink fur rug on the floor and your record coasters on the table.

Improve the ambiance even more by playing some music from this Spotify playlist and using these funky 70’s video projections from YouTube on the TV.

Finally, put on your hippie circle glasses, snack on some M&Ms because this hotel room is cool beans.

Step 4: Execute the Surprise

Once the room is fully decorated, it’s time to execute the big reveal!

Hopefully your partner doesn’t know about your decorations ahead of time. If they do know or suspect something, we recommend charging ahead anyway! A fun decorated room is a thoughtful gesture and will still make your partner feel appreciated.

If they don’t know about your decorations and you’re trying to maintain the secret, we recommend doing the following to avoid making any mistakes:

  • Make sure the front desk doesn’t give away the surprise! If you have checked in earlier and already have the key, either ask the front desk ahead of time to be discrete when you check in or pretend to check in while your romantic partner waits somewhere else.
  • Talk about things that make it seem like you haven’t been in this place before. Comment on fun or interesting features of the hotel.
  • Ask your partner to open the door to the room door. This is pretty easy to do if you offer to carry most of the bags/luggage.

The most meaningful birthday themes are based on the preferences and interests of the birthday boy or girl. When planning how to decorate your hotel room, we recommend basing your decorations on one of their favorite hobbies, interests, fandoms, or pieces of media (shows, movies, musicians, etc).

However, some people don’t have obvious interests or wouldn’t appreciate a party based on their interests (for example: if my husband has another Golf themed party he’s going to lose it…).

If that sounds like your birthday person, then feel free to use one of our Birthday inspired party themes below.

If you’re looking to set a more romantic mood with your decorations, see this page on Romantic Ways to Decorate a Hotel Room.

Balloon Bash

Blow up a birthday bash with delicious treats, colorful decor and a large Pop of pizzaz! Start by covering curtains and doorways with shimmery silver foil curtains and a large metallic “Happy Birthday” balloon.

Open the cake scented, dog balloon animal air freshener and dim the lights. Hang twinkle lights around the space and set out the party favors (blow pops and balloon helicopters). Further set the mood by playing some music from this Spotify playlist and using this Youtube video on the TV.

Finish the room by tossing a few mug cakes in the microwave and topping them with colorful “Happy Birthday” candles. Don’t forget to wrap your balloon animal dog sculpture gift!

Best Last Minute Birthday Lunch Ideas at Work

We’ve all been there. It’s Thursday morning, you get into the office, grab your coffee, and check your calendar. Oh shoot! Today is your co-workers birthday. You knew it was coming but you haven’t planned anything!

Time to take action.

Put on your planning hat and don’t forget…

Some of the best birthday work lunches are last minute surprises.
Here’s how to plan one.

A few things to consider before throwing your birthday lunch:

  • See if it’s appropriate for your office culture. You may have to ask around with co-workers and management, because you don’t want to plan something against policy or conflicting with meeting times
  • Don’t be repetitive. If your work team does the same birthday tradition for everyone then go with that, otherwise let your creative juices flow and plan something a little more unique for your birthday co-worker.
  • Consider getting the guest of honor on board. Some people don’t love to be surprised, and the birthday person may prefer to be part of the planning process.

On The Birthday

A Birthday Surprise Lunch Break at a Restaurant

A birthday surprise lunch break at a restaurant is often better than the one thrown in your office kitchen. It’s exciting, special, and you know it will be delicious! It’s also easy to plan:

  • Find a restaurant with a private room or quiet table where you can talk without being overheard.
  • Check out their menu online. Make sure you order food that the birthday person likes and make note of any food allergies.
  • Pick your favorite dishes for everyone to share and make reservations for brunch, lunch or dinner!

Skip Lunch and Go Straight to Dessert!

If you’re someone who is often too busy to eat lunch or has a lot of work to do on a regular basis, then this option can be particularly ideal! Grab some candles and enjoy some time with your coworkers, plus you’ll still have time to get your tasks done that day.

  • Bake your own cake. You can make a delicious chocolate cake in minutes using just cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking soda, eggs, hot water and butter or oil. Or use a boxed mix from the store.
  • Order in cupcakes. Many bakeries will deliver cupcakes within one hour if ordered in advance. Contact yours to see if they offer this service and place an order for the day of their birthday—or even better, surprise them by ordering them when everyone else is away from their desk so it’s not obvious that something special is coming.
  • Bring in cake from a fancy bakery. If you know that there’s a bakery near your office that makes exquisite cakes and pastries, consider ordering one for the entire office for the day of their birthday. This way everyone can enjoy it without having to leave the office! The only thing left will be figuring out how much each person should pay since they all enjoyed the dessert together (unless you want to cover it yourself).

Just Drinks!

Does the birthday person sip a beer, or love a glass of wine? Maybe they’re all about stronger stuff like gin and tonic or tequila with lime. If you can find out what their drink of choice is, bring that! Or have everyone pitch in a few dollars to buy them their favorite bottle. You could also go with something less-alcoholic, like a six pack of seltzer or hard cider.

Just make sure to ask around before you buy anything—you don’t want to get something that no one else likes. And remember—don’t forget the glasses!

Week Before The Birthday

If you end up having a little more time to plan the lunch, consider one of these options:

Potluck

One of the best last-minute birthday lunch ideas at work is to organize a potluck. It’s great for big teams and even better if you’re short on time.

Invite everyone – The more people, the merrier!

A good theme makes a potluck more exciting. As an example, we once did an “Avocado and Tomato” potluck where everyone had to bring something with one or both of these ingredients. It was delicious!

Next, make sure you don’t have too many salads and no dessert (or vice versa). The best way to do this is by assigning which category each person will be bringing their food from. Do this in advance so you don’t end up with three chocolate cakes!

It’s also important that you have enough food for everybody. You don’t want your colleague having only a single slice of pizza for lunch when they’re hungry from skipping breakfast earlier in the morning because they were rushing to get their kids ready for school. The best way to prevent this is by doing a headcount beforehand so you can estimate how much food needs to be prepared or ordered in advance – there’s nothing worse than having half of your team go home hungry!

Finally, if other coworkers aren’t able to cook or bring anything with them then ordering takeout might be another option. This way everyone will still enjoy themselves without feeling like there isn’t enough around the table for everyone else too!

Birthday Party in a Box

For this one, you have a lot of freedom. You can start with a simple cardboard box and wrap it in wrapping paper, or buy a gift bag and fill it with lunch items. It’s also nice to include a card, so that your co-worker knows who the box is from and why they’ve received it. This idea works well because you can tailor everything to the recipient’s tastes. For example, if you know your co-worker loves Chinese food, pack them some wontons or noodles into the box along with some chopsticks and fortune cookies for an authentic feel. Or, if your co-worker prefers something more American-style like hamburgers or pizza slices, then by all means throw those in a gift box (along with all of the necessary condiments) to make their day! If you really want to get creative then include napkins as well.

Thoughtful Non-Food Related Ideas

Balloon Bouquet

Balloons are a great last minute birthday idea. They’re festive and fun, and they come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Balloons can be bought at places like party supply stores or supermarkets, making them easy to find. You can even order balloons online for quick delivery or pick-up. One of the best things about balloons is that they are easy to store and transport, making them convenient to have on hand for any last minute birthday celebrations!

Surprise Them in the Parking Lot

If you’re really bad at remembering birthdays, there’s a chance that this last-minute birthday lunch idea will be your first idea. Okay, so it’s more like an after-work surprise than a lunch, but why not make the most of being caught off guard and do something truly memorable? Here are some ways to pull off a parking lot birthday surprise:

  • Get everyone together in the parking lot
  • Decorate their car
  • Put gifts inside the car
  • Send them off with songs or cheering
  • You can even ask everyone to honk their cars’ horns as they drive past

Send a Funky Birthday eCard

Look for a card that fits the person’s personality, interests, or sense of humor. Once you’ve found the perfect ecard, navigate to the ‘send card’ or ‘add recipient’ section of the website.

If you’re looking for a book club-esque idea for your next get together, this is the perfect one. Have everyone bring their favorite book and have everyone go around and talk about what they like and dislike about the book they brought. Talk about why you enjoy it or don’t enjoy it, what’s made you want to keep reading it despite its flaws (or how much those flaws bother you), what could be changed in order to make it better, etc. This can also be done while playing games or doing other activities—the main thing is that everyone gets involved!

What are the Best Potluck Get Together Ideas?

Create a Chocolate Dipping Bar

Super easy sweet treat potluck.

You provide the dipping chocolate (check out this super easy 3 ingredient recipe here!)and your friends provide the dippable items (strawberries, marshmallows, cookies, etc.). If you want to go above and beyond provide a few toppings to place on dipped items while they are cooling.

Cheese + Crackers + Fruit Spreads

A cheese bar is a great way to entertain and can be made quite easily. The important thing is that you have several types of cheeses, crackers, and/or fruit spreads to accompany them. If you are serving the cheese at room temperature, it’s best to serve it on a platter rather than sliced onto individual crackers.

8 Little Dirty Romantic Birthday Ideas At Home For Him

Every birthday is special, but this year you want to add a little extra spicy hot. That’s where we come in. Adding a few dirty little romantic birthday ideas will help you make his day unforgettable.

After reading this article, you’ll have enough ideas that it won’t just be a birthday celebration, it will be a weekend getaway with tons of fun activities to try.

So let’s get started!

1) Write A Love Letter

If you want to kick things up a notch, why not write your partner a love letter? It’s a simple and effective way of showing them how much you truly care about them and their happiness. The best part? A love letter is something that can be done anywhere (and at any time) because all you need is some paper and pen!

If you’re really feeling romantic, take the time to write out the letter in an old-fashioned way on nicer paper, with a quality pen, with a splash of perfume, and closed with a wax seal.

2) Massages

If you’re looking for an intimate way to celebrate your partner’s birthday and make him feel special on his big day—or any other occasion—then definitely consider giving him one or two before the big event.

Or consider getting a couples massage together. A good massage can be a wonderful way to relax, unwind, and reconnect with your partner.

3) Bubble Bath for Two

You cant go wrong if you follow the romantic bath stereotypes: a tub, bubbles, candles, wine, chocolate, and strawberries.

This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce a few fun ideas that you’ve wanted to try in the past, but perhaps considered to be too messy: whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and honey.

4) Have a Candlelight Dinner

One of the best ways to up the romantic ambiance is to add candles. And one of the best ways to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Combine the two, and you are looking at a power duo.

5) Make a Homemade Naughty Birthday Card

You can make all sorts of cards with different themes/jokes/puns within them as well as send messages via social media sites like Facebook if you want some more options too!

6) Go Skinny Dipping

It’s not just for kids anymore! Go ahead and strip down and jump in — it’s good exercise, plus it’ll make you feel closer to each other.

7) Body Paint

Body paint is a fun way to get creative, experiment with colors, and feel close with your main squeeze. You don’t need any special equipment for body painting, so it’s perfect for those who are looking for cheap ideas. Body painting can be done at home or in a hotel room and is best when you do it with someone you love.

8) Bedroom Truth or Dare

Get creative with your choices. For example, if you choose “truth,” ask him to tell you something that he’s been holding back from you. If he chooses “dare,” tell him to wear your favorite outfit for the next week and leave it on until bedtime!

Take turns asking each other questions—the best way to get honest answers is by having fun with them! Remember: this isn’t about blaming or shaming each other for past mistakes; it’s about learning more about what makes them tick without judgment or shame. The point here is to be playful and open-minded so that everyone feels comfortable sharing as much information as possible without feeling awkward about it later.

Host a Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are fun events that allow people to relax and enjoy their time away from the pressures of life. They’re also perfect if you want to spend time with friends while enjoying some great movies!

Plan a Game Night

Nothing says “spring” like friends gathering together to celebrate. For your next birthday, plan a game night complete with snacks and drinks.

Jumbo Breakfast Cookies

These are easy to make, but they look impressive, so they’re perfect for a birthday party at work. They’re also super delicious. I guarantee that everyone will love them!

Champagne Cupcakes with Confetti Buttercream

Champagne cupcakes with confetti buttercream are a great treat to bring in on your birthday at the office. The champagne flavor comes from a few tablespoons of champagne mixed into the batter, while the buttercream is made with confetti sprinkles and champagne.

The best part of these cupcakes is that they’re super easy to make — all you need is a box of cake mix and some frosting. If you want to make them even more festive, add some gold sprinkles as well!

Lemonade Cake

It’s perfect for any occasion, but I especially love to make it on my birthday at the office. It’s not too sweet, so it wakes up your taste buds without overwhelming them. The texture is also soft and fluffy, which makes it great for snacking on throughout the day.

Pumpkin Pie Bites

This treat is easy to make and can be made ahead of time. Also, it’s perfect for sharing, since it can be cut into squares or individual pieces. They’re best enjoyed chilled out of the fridge (though they’ll still taste amazing at room temperature), so this makes them ideal for potlucks or parties where you don’t know how long they’ll sit out before being eaten.

Birthday Popcorn

This treat is a great option for any party or occasion. It’s easy to make, tasty, and not too expensive. You can add some variety by adding in other toppings like chocolate or peanut butter chips. 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to be specific!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

This is a great take on classic chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s sweet, rich and delicious. The best part is that it can be made ahead of time and served with pretzels or graham crackers. It’s also great as a dessert for a party.

How To Make Your Birthday Special For Yourself

We often associate birthdays with making other people happy. So, we spend the day hosting parties, entertaining guests, and giving to others. And that’s great! There’s nothing wrong with celebrating a birthday by spending time with people you love.

But what if you don’t have time for a party or just don’t feel like having one? What if you’re introverted, or would just prefer to celebrate alone? In this post, I’ll show you some ways to make your special day even more special for yourself.

You might also enjoy these birthday-related posts:

1) Do Something That Scares You

Your birthday is the perfect time to challenge yourself. Try something new, like going to a new restaurant or trying out a new hobby. Maybe you’ve always wanted to go scuba diving but never had the courage before; this would be the best time to do it! Or if you’re more of a homebody, maybe pick up an instrument and learn how to play it—the possibilities are endless. Just as long as you’re challenging yourself, there’s no wrong answer!

2) Visit an Interesting City

Go somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, but never had the chance. Or try visiting somewhere that is known for something that you are not interested in at all. (This is a great way to discover things about yourself.)

3) Go to the Beach or Lake

Take a trip to the beach or a lake. If you live in a place with either, visit one of these spots on your birthday and enjoy the weather, water and natural beauty that it offers. Bring along a book or journal to read and pack up a picnic lunch!

4) Plan a lot of Activities for the Day

One of the best ways to make your birthday special is by planning many activities for the day. You can plan something that you’ve never done before, or something that you have always wanted to do, or something that you think would be fun, or even just something interesting. The point here is that if you take the time in advance to plan out all the things that are going to happen on your birthday, then it will be an unforgettable day and will help ensure that everyone has fun!

5) Get Dressed up and Go To a Nice Restaurant

How about going out for a nice dinner? Get dressed up, have reservations and enjoy the food, atmosphere and company. Don’t worry about the bill–it’s your birthday!

6) Reflect on Life While Watching the Sunrise or Sunset

If you’re feeling contemplative, spend some time watching the sunrise or sunset on your birthday. It’s a beautiful way to reflect on life, and it’s also a great way to make yourself feel better about yourself and appreciate all that you have accomplished in life so far. It’s also a good idea because it makes you feel like you’re refreshing yourself on your “big day”.

7) Volunteer at an Animal Shelter

You don’t have to have a pet of your own to volunteer at an animal shelter. You can help out with the animals of all kinds, ages and sizes. The best part about volunteering is that you get to spend time with cute animals and make them feel special for their day.

You can also help out by cleaning cages, walking dogs and playing with cats. It’s a great way to make your birthday more meaningful because you’re helping others while doing something fun on your special day!

8) Attend an Amusement Park

One of the best ways to make your birthday special is to go somewhere you enjoy that doesn’t require a lot of other people. That’s why I recommend attending an amusement park solo!

You can go on rides by yourself, or visit the gift shop and no one will be there to hold up the line! You can also take pictures alone and eat food by yourself. Some people might feel uncomfortable doing any of these things on their own, but trust me: The feeling will pass quickly once you realize how much fun it is!

9) Have a Movie Marathon in your Pajamas

This is one of my favorite ways to spend my birthday. I love spending time with friends, but sometimes it’s nice to just hang out by myself with a good movie or TV show. Pick out some snacks and get comfy in your PJs!

10) Take Yourself on a Date

Plan a date that you would like to go on, write a list of things you would like to do and make sure you are safe, comfortable and having fun while doing it.

11) Celebrate your Birthdays of Previous Years

One of the best ways to make your birthday special is to celebrate the ones you’ve had in the past. This can help you celebrate what a great person you are, and it can also be a good way to get closure on any emotional issues that may be holding you back from moving forward.

It’s important not to dwell on the past though, so make sure that when you’re celebrating your birthdays of previous years, you focus more on how far you’ve come since then rather than how much better or worse things were back then.

12) Make a Song Playlist

You can start by making a list of all the songs you love. Be sure to include any song that makes you feel good, even if it’s one that doesn’t seem like it would make sense on this list. These are your favorites, after all.

When you’re done, create a playlist on your phone or computer so that each time one of these songs comes up in shuffle mode, it will remind you of how much joy they bring into your life. Then listen to the playlist throughout your birthday: while getting ready for work or school; on the way there and back; while cleaning the house; during lunch break—the possibilities are endless!

13) Make a List of All the Things You’re Grateful For

One of the most important things you can do for yourself on your birthday is to make a list of all the things you are grateful for. This should include anything and everything that makes you happy, including your family, friends, job/school/hobbies, etc.

By taking time each year to write down everything good about yourself, will help ensure that throughout any given year’s 365 days’ worth of moments that aren’t so great after all…you’ll have those feelings from your birthday still lingering strong!

Conclusion

We hope that by sharing these tips and strategies, we’ve helped you come up with some new ideas for how to make your own birthdays special. There are so many ways to celebrate yourself, from doing a digital detox to having a personal mini movie marathon. We want to remind you that this is YOUR birthday, and it should be spent doing what makes YOU happy. So, if that’s hiking in the mountains or going out for a fancy dinner or sleeping in until noon, make sure you do what feels right!

Takeaway: You deserve an amazing birthday – no matter who joins you or how old you are!
