5 Ways to Wine and Dine your Sweethearts for Valentine’s Day

Today I’m joining some of my favorite girls to bring you 5 ways to wine and dine your sweethearts for Valentine’s Day! These ideas are designed to help you spoil your Valentine this year. If you are new here from Chloe’s blog Boxwood Avenue or from anywhere, welcome! I’m so glad you found me! I hope you will look around and come back often.

To me Valentine’s Day isn’t just a holiday for love birds, it’s for all of those special little someone’s in your life, that includes my 5 sweet children. So we celebrate Valentine’s Day all together, as a family.  My husband and I go out to celebrate on a different night alone, when it’s not as crowded and busy.

This year to wine and dine your Valentine, try setting a fancy table for breakfast.

Start with a couple of yards of my jumbo gold heart fabric as a table cloth. You don’t have to sew any edges or anything! Simply throw it on the table!  I used this fabric on last year’s  Valentine’s Day table too. Mine is printed on the modern jersey fabric. It’s amazing because it doens’t wrinkle and washes up fabulously!

For the place settings use…

Gold Chargers

White Plates – I love these plates because they look like Valentine doilies!

White napkins

Juice and water glasses

Gold Flatware

For the centerpiece, use a fancy vase and some fresh white flowers. I mixed white roses with jumbo, white hydrangeas.

To really make your Valentines feel spoiled,  add a box of chocolates to each place setting. Grab some of those inexpensive boxes of chocolates you can find at your local grocery store. We are going to doll these babies up to make them look like a million bucks!!!

To make these special mini love boxes follow these 3 simple steps…

How to Make Chocolate Gift Boxes

1 | Trace the heart box lid onto the paper of your choice. I used different gold papers from my local craft shop. You can use card stock and fancy it up with stamps, like I did with my thank you notes here.

2 | Cut the heart out

3 | Glue the paper onto the top of the box

Slip a small gift inside with the chocolates. I added heart shaped earring for my daughter, Apple gift cards for my boys and money for the younger kiddos. You may also want to slip in a special love note. Tie it up with some ribbon {here is the ribbon I used, it is so luxurious}!!! They make fabulous gifts for teachers too!

Next whip up a fun breakfast to complete your spoiling! If you’re looking for a good menu, visit my Kate Spade brunch post with the recipe for THE BEST homemade waffles and syrup here.
