Valentines Day Inspiration
Even though Valentines Day is a majorly commercialized day, I still love what it represents and always think of all the lovely brides out there accepting proposals around this holiday. As a married gal, I am always excited to see what my husband will come up with to show his love. Admittedly, I am not the easiest person to shop for or surprise, so flowers and chocolate do little for me. Poor Mark. But if his gifts have depth and humor – score! : )
With Valentines Day right around the corner I thought it would be fun to look at some lovely inspiration to get the creativity flowing and a few ideas on how to make the most of the day.
Decor: Adding a few love-inspired decor items to your home creates the romantic atmosphere. I love these ideas that I found via Pinterest.
Using yarn to decorate is so fun! The texture is pretty and its warm and versatile. Love this idea.
I think I might use this idea in my office. Perfect for this wedding planner who loves love…and clipboards. :)
Food: What is Valentines day without sweet treats?! Here are some pretty goodies and a super easy recipe too!
A little food coloring, a heart-shaped cookie cutter and BAM – adorable pancakes.
Red Velvet Cheesecake Milkshake
Yield: 1 Milkshake
4 scoops Bluebell Vanilla Ice Cream
a big handful (about 1/2 cup) Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie scraps
1/4 cup whole milk
Whipped cream, as desired
In a blender, combine ice cream, scraps, and milk. Puree until smooth.
Pour into a frosted glass and garnish with whipped cream and a few more chopped up scraps.
Gifts ideas that I LOVE – and you might too:
Oh, I have no words….
Well actually I do. This. Is. Hilarious. I love to cook and I love me a good parody.
If there were ever an occasion for suggestive body wash, Valentines Day would be it. And seriously, what woman wouldn’t love organic and paraben-free body wash in an old school glue bottle?!
Whether you’re in a seasoned relationship or a new relationship, everyone needs a tiebreaker at some point. :)
Dinner at an amazing restaurant, dancing at a swanky jazz club, and a quick get-away to a romantic inn/B&B are all winners in my book as well.
Guys: start planning now! Valentines Day is a little more than two weeks away. If you’re planning on proposing to your love, I can help you set up something beautiful! <— Insert plug here.
