Whether you hate or love Valentine's day, it is definitely a day for love. Everyone is focused on that one word. How do you show your love? Does it have to be for a partner or potential partner? Can it just be for your friends? Gal-entine's has become quite popular in the past few years. I had honestly never heard of it up until this year but its a thing especially with the younger crowds! Billed as February 13th, its a day of girl bonding and pampering with your pals!
If you are looking for the perfect idea on what to do with your loved ones, visit my friend Amanda's blog post! She gives some great advice on how to show your love and indulge yourself as well with innovative date nights!
Let's get back to the day of indulgence though! What do you think of when you think of Valentine's Day? Diamond rings, romantic proposals, heart shaped boxes of chocolates? Maybe you are more of a card and flowers type of person. Candlelight dinner with wine? What speaks to you when you think romance? Do you want time in a simple setting or fancy jewelry and reservations? A couples massage perhaps? I think anything you choose, speaks to you and what you like to indulge in!
This is a good way to think about your wedding too! Maybe your ideas on what a romantic day means to you will inspire you for your upcoming engagement/proposal/wedding day planning!
My friend Amanda with Amanda K Events (previously mentioned and blog post linked!) and I got together with help from a few bakers and created a perfect setting that would work well for your gal pals or your loved ones. Even kids would enjoy our love "tea" party! Take this theme and go wild for birthday party, baby showers, bridal showers, or just an afternoon stress reliever to celebrate life!
We enjoyed putting this together to inspire you on this Valentine's Day! Share with us your own romantic ideas or "tea" party photos! We would love to see where your romantic imagination takes you!
