Southern Romance was the second mini-theme to be released as part of Valentine's Day 2012. The theme was telling a story of upper-class love, with the house including rooms such as a ballroom.
The theme had a mixed reception, with some people liking it and some finding it a bit boring.
The theme was removed not long after Valentine's Day was over in 2012. When the Steampunk theme was released in October 2012, some of the clothing items became popular, such as the top hat.
