Keeping romance alive takes a bit of thought and effort. One impressive way to create a romantic atmosphere is by scattering rose petals on a bed. This time-honoured tradition takes relatively little time to execute. It does require some effort and planning, however. This is also a romantic way to celebrate a special occasion, such as an anniversary or birthday. Add a special gift if you like, perhaps placed on a pillow, for an extra surprise.

  1. 1

    Phone a few florists and ask if they sell rose petals. Many sell just the petals in bags.

  2. 2

    Select the colour of your choice. If you're concerned about staining, opt for a lighter colour, such as white or pink, instead of red.

  3. 3

    Buy at least one full rose on a long stem.

  4. 4

    Set up the rose petals while your loved one is out of the house.

  5. 5

    Make the bed and tidy the bedroom.

  6. 6

    Scatter rose petals on the bed. You can place them in a heart shape, spell a name or simply scatter them in a pleasing random fashion. Put the long-stemmed rose (thorns removed) on a pillow or other prominent place.

  7. 7

    Create a trail of rose petals from the front door to the bedroom, if you have enough petals.

Tips and warnings

  • Craft shops sell silk rose petals in bags. This is a good option if your loved one has allergies or if fresh petals aren't available.
  • Creating a romantic atmosphere is important. In addition to the rose petals, light candles (in safe places) and play soft music in the bedroom. A chilled bottle of wine or champagne and two flutes make another nice touch.
