How to Make the Most of National Romance Month

Did you know that romance month gets celebrated in August? That’s Right! Exactly six months after Valentine’s day comes the lesser-known holiday of Romance Month. Romance Month was created in 1987 by Eileen Buchheim in an effort to encourage couples to reignite the spark of romance. In honor of Eileen Buchheim, we here at  VanderSalm’s Flowershop are here to help you plan a memorable Romance Month and make your partner feel extra special this Romance month.

Ways to Celebrate Romance Month and Speak Your Partner’s Love Language

There are a wide variety of things you can do to make your partner feel special this romance month, from planning a big date to showing small tokens of your appreciation. However, one of the best things you can do to show your love all month long is to learn to speak your partner’s romance language. Dr. Gary Chapman says that the love languages to best connect with your partner are using physical touch, saying words of affirmation, acts of service, spending quality time together, and giving gifts. So this Romance Month, speak your partner’s Romance language to make them feel special.

Leave Love Notes – Words of Affirmation

It always feels good to be reminded how much someone loves you. You can do this for your significant other by leaving meaningful handwritten notes. You can leave one long note in the mornings that express your love or a handful of small notes left around the house. Show your partner how much you adore them with these little reminders, and they will feel very loved.

Enjoy a Long Weekend Away – Quality Time

Sometimes the best thing to do to reconnect with your partner is to get away so you can spend some quality time together. Since romance month is about reigniting the spark and keeping the passion alive, a romantic weekend getaway can do wonders to spark the embers of romance. Spend a few days reconnecting, listening to each other, and falling deeper in love.

Go Dancing – Physical Touch

Dancing is a great way to do something fun and romantic with your partner. You don’t have to be a talented dancer or even on a dance floor as long as you are with your significant other, when the mood strikes you, you can have a moment with your partner.

Send Flowers – Receiving Gifts

There are so many ways to show your love this Romance Month, but our favorite is using symbolic blooms like alstroemeria, violets, lilacs, daisies, carnations, orchids, and of course, roses. You can send these blooms to your partner’s office, so they are surprised by them or have them waiting on the counter at home. Flowers are a timeless gift that carries magnificent symbolism for romance, making them the perfect gift for showing your love.

Tackle the Chores Together – Acts of Service

A great way to show your appreciation for your significant other is to take the initiative and help them out with their household chores. You can either tackle the chores together, listening to music and enjoying each other company, or surprise them when they come home with their chores being taken care of. While this may not sound particularly romantic, helping your significant other out really shows how much you appreciate them and will fill them with gratitude.

Plan a Weekly Dinner Date – All Five Love Languages

If you’re not quite sure what your partner’s love language is or if they have multiple, then you can pick a day of the week and plan a romantic dinner date that speaks to all five love languages. Bring flowers, light candles, and hold hands as you chat about the love you’ve shared and your plans for the future.
