Searching for spring decorating ideas inevitably unleashes an avalanche of images of Easter-themed decor. And while I love me some pastels without question (especially this time of year), I can do without seeing chicks, eggs, and baskets all over my living room. I like these ideas instead.
Whether you're recently uncoupled or a veteran of the single life (like yours truly), even if you totally think Valentine's Day is dumb, it can still kind of suck a little bit each year when everywhere you turn you see cupid cutouts, pink hearts and cute couples. There are four solid celebration styles to choose from that can make Valentine's Day fun no matter your couple status.
Do you love where you live almost as much as you love your life partner? Are you single this year and looking for a hot date with an emotionally available living space? This year, forget the chocolates and corny Valentine's Day cards and spend some time treating your home to a little lovin' this February 14th.
Who says Valentines Day has to be all about flowers and perfume, and delicate things? Sure, those are nice, but if your snookums fancies craft projects and lovely artwork instead — well, this project is for them!
Here's a fast and easy DIY on how to create fun, colorful friendship necklaces for you and your best friend(s). Give them as gifts for Galentine's Day and tell your girls how much you love having them in your life!
It's hard to believe that Galentine's Day didn't exist until a couple of years ago, when it was coined by Parks & Recreation's Leslie Knope as a way to get together with female friends and recognize your importance in each other's lives. Like Festivus before it, Galentine's Day now transcends television and is practically a national recognized holiday (or at least it should be).
Valentine's Day is like Black Friday to me. Places are crowded. There's a lot of temptation to spend a ton of money all at once. In the case of either event, frankly, I'd rather stay at home and wait for it all to blow over. But a cozy night at home with your valentine can be pretty special if you take a few extra steps to make it more of an event than your regular weeknight dinners.
It's almost Valentines's Day! Love is in the air–and on your walls too, if you opt for one of these pieces. Because, after all, your home should reflect who you are, especially if who you are is a couple who's madly in love with each other.
