Don't Panic, Valentine!

Let's go over Valentine's Day for the procrastinators. Whether it be you, or your significant other that needs a little guidance!
 Flowers.  Don't buy grocery store flowers.  Terribly over-priced and just bad. They had actually sprinkled silver glitter on mini rose plants. Just no. Trader Joes has the best selection at an amazing price.  And also, is there any shame in buying your own flowers? 
Half the fun is getting exactly you want, right?!
If you haven't already heard of Amazon PrimeNow, get on board!  Having an Amazon Prime membership is already worth it's weight in gold & with PrimeNow, it'll change your life.  You can shop online and get things delivered in as little as one hour.  No delivery charge, just a small tip for the driver included in your total. They have a limited selection of roses right now AND if you spend at least $20 you can a free box of delicious fancy chocolate. Amazon is amazing, guys.

And if you're looking for something simple, quick but still adorable, turn to all the heart day themed printables.  Paging Super Mom shared a printable to turn store bought cakes into cute treats.
And I loved using Camille Styles' printables in years past for mini Valentines.

Valentine's Day is on Sunday, but all hope is not lost if it's snuck up on you! There's still time to make it special & you can always run to the Dollar Store to grab some fun things for the kids.

Confetti Love Notes

Need an extra special way to spread the love to those far away?  Send a not FILLED with love! Okay, there's tiny tissue paper hearts, but that's basically the same thing, right?!
If you can't find your own vellum envelopes, using an opened envelope of your own, trace then cut a 12x12 sheet of vellum and glue to make your own.
 I whipped out some simple and cute notes that could peek through the envelope & confetti.
 Fill up those envelopes!  Be sure to get some in the front and the back.  Seal tightly & give it a good shake to distribute the looooove.  Ours are going to grandparents, because they won't get made at their grandson when the confetti falls all over them!

Dollar Store: Valentines Day

Yes, I do believe this merits it's own WHOLE blog post.  First of all, if you're too good for dollar stores, this is not the blog for you. hahaha Harsh, but totally honest! I have an (often) unhealthy addiction to dollar stores, especially around the holidays.  So of course I'm sharing 
"Things to Buy From the Dollar Store: Valentine's Day Edition".  First up, cheap chocolate. Not for me, or those you love, but for people like little children i.e., class valentines, or little valentines for your child.  Speaking of class valentines, if you do store bought, hello! 32 for 1 dollar?! Steal. 
Thirdly, heart balloons. which can cost an arm and a leg at party boutiques. 10 for $1. And they're big! I love to blow them up and scatter them in rooms for a morning Valentines Day surprise. Lastly, on my must-grab list, heart straws.  I'm unusually excited about Valentine's Day being on Sunday because I get to spend all day relaxing with my family, and I thought these straws would be so fun to make our dinner special.  I for sure know my 4 year old with think I'm the best mom ever.
Okay so am I missing anything? Did you guys find something else awesome I HAVE to run out and grab before Valentine's Day?!

French Valentine Printable

So when I was in high school, I took French. It was the only other foreign language offered besides Spanish.  EVERYONE took spanish, and so being the "cool" freshman that I was, signed up to take French as my foreign language.  I also signed up for theatre....I did NOT have to repeat theatre, but I did have to re-take a foreign language class. fail. But blocking that horrible french teacher from my memory, I sometimes like to pretend I can speak French, because it's so much more romantic than Spanish, right?!  (I know way more and better spanish)
So come pretend that you, too, can speak gorgeous French with an impeccable accent with this fun Valentines Printable. "Je t'aime mon amour" (google)translates to "I love you, my darling".
I got mine printed out as an engineer print from Staples. It comes with the lines printed so you can perfectly it to be a gorgeous hanging banner but attaching a dowel & bakers twine.

Heart "Scallop" Wreath

This wreath is so easy & self-explanatory, it doesn't even merit a tutorial. It's simple and creates a look of scallops when completed, but is 100% Valentines with hearts.
 Use a foam wreath, your choice of felt (I only needed one of each color), and hot glue.
Tie some cute ribbon over the little gap you may be left with & you're done!

14 Striped Sign

This Valentine's Day sign is as easy as it is cute!  The only thing I had to go buy is the wood circle from Hobby Lobby, and they come in a 3 pack so you can have one for every holiday!

 Just as easy as that! Obviously make sure to let the white paint dry before applying the tape for the pink paint coat.

Glitter Heart Balloon

Here's a fun tutorial for Glitter Heart Balloons for someone special in your life!

Apply your vinyl stencil to your balloon. TIP: I cut mine right at the bottom to make all the sides lay flat.

Apply a layer of decoupage to balloon.

Quickly pour on glitter over decoupaged & carefully remove your stencil. Let dry & ta-da!

Enjoy those adorable glitter hearts!
