Play With Paper
Serve a Cool Cocktail
Glamp It Up at Home
"Skip the fancy dinner reservations and plan on a cozy night at home instead. Set up a picnic in the living room (or outside, if weather permits) and, using what you have for décor, set up candles to create a sweet setting. Grab your favorite bottle of Champagne, put on some tunes (Edith Piaf is a favorite for a romantic night in), and enjoy a simple cheese board with all the fixings." —Jacin Fitzgerald, Owner & Creative Director, Jacin Fitzgerald Events
Yes Way, Rosé
Rely on Roses
"For a holiday all about love, flowers, especially roses, are a sure necessity! Combine varying shades of pink and blush to create an arrangement with depth or use a contrasting linen for an unexpected twist (in this case a vibrant blue and white pattern)." —Alicia Caldecott, Owner, A Day in May Event Planning & Design
Make It Sweet
"Regardless of who you are entertaining for on Valentine's Day, it's essential to have some cute and fun confections. For a quick and easy solution, purchase some edible gold sugar to decorate your martini glass rim and some chocolate dipped marshmallows!" —Tracy Taylor Ward, President & Principal Designer/Planner, Tracy Taylor Ward Design
