Making Valentines Special
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate the best feeling in the world. Valentine’s Day is such a sweet day, an excuse for a date and to dress up.
How can we make this Valentine’s Special this year?
Last year I got the most fun dinner from my friend Cami. She had it as a printable and it was a hit at my house. I set up a backdrop so no one could see in to the kitchen. I had them fill out their orders for each course of the meal and they didn’t know what each thing meant. So they were surprised with the combinations that came out to them. We used fancy dishes, fancy drink cups and had a blast.
She is no longer offering the fun dinner, so I created one… Head over to The Party Collab and enter your email to get the PDF.
I feel like I have been ahead of the game this year when it comes to surprising my people with Valentine’s gifts. (THANK YOU TARGET DOLLAR SPOT!) I got them the cutest little red mail boxes (thinking ahead here for decor as well) and I am filling it with all the candy ever. And I even got the sweetest handmade crocheted bees to ask them “Will you bee my Valentine?”
I can’t tell you what I am getting Scott because he reads this blog…
Cards are also a very good thing. I love to write my kids “Love Notes” listing things I love about them. Writing out feelings is so good because it gives the other person something to look back at and treasure.
I love any reason to dress up for a date with my cute hubby. Even if we are doing a date at home I touch up my makeup, fix my hair, wear something a little more than yoga pants and a t-shirt. It makes it more romantic, it lets him know I am doing this for him and that I want to look good for him.
Put something on that is a little more fancy, even for a night in. Wear the lipstick that makes you feel amazing. Wear the heels.
FOR THE KIDS
For some reason kids love to put frosting on a sugar cookie and pile it a mile high with sprinkles. It makes the perfect dessert for them and a fun activity. Make them feel loved by doing something they love.
