Mood: Valentine's Day
I am sold on Valentine's Day in the sense of pretty things. I am not sold on Valentine's Day in the way that puts a whole bunch of pressure on dates, relationships, or lack thereof.
Since college, I have pretty much celebrated Valentine's Day as a normal day but with a tiny bit more confetti or flowers or pink shirts. Zach and I don't do anything out of the ordinary usually - But everyday is Valentine's Day, amiright? :)
Because a little mood board is a simple gathering, here are a few ideas that I adore when I think about Feb 14th:
wear something a little feminine, perhaps in the blush family
get flowers for yourself, your friends, or for your babe (last year Zach stopped into Eden to get me a bouquet from a pop up hosted by Plum Events/Wildflower DSM). Wrap them in newspaper or craft paper + ribbon!
write your friends or your family or your SO a little love letter. What makes it fun for me is a little heart card from Pink Print Co.
if you're like my parents, decorate your house with balloons in the morning and don't hold back on the heart shaped chocolate boxes (local at Beaverdale Confections)
enjoy your sleepy winter morning with a bit of black coffee at your local cafe - my choice would be Horizon Line
have a little dinner or weekend brunch with your best gal pals. Spend time making some things with your hands!
All the love, from Pleasant St.
