Valentine’s Day Links

Since this weekend was full blown all things engagement I didn’t have too much time to put together Valentine’s Day themed looks or additional recipes {check out the latest here}. We had engagement photos all morning and afternoon Saturday and our engagement party with family and friends Saturday evening. Sunday was obviously for recovery aka lots of sleep, running errands, and getting ready for the Superbowl {not happy about the outcome}. Therefore unfortunately the blog took a backseat {to be 100% honest} and while I missed my time writing and putting stuff together for y’all, it was great to enjoy a full weekend with Joshua, family, and friends and no work.

With that said though, I did put together a mix of Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day themed posts. From recipes to looks to date ideas and more. So find a little inspo below from some fabulous bloggers I love!

Valentine's Day, VDay, Galentine's Day, Recipes, Floral Arrangements, Bar Cart

Planning to have the gals over for a full blown Galentine’s Day soirée? Take a few hints from Whitney Porter, Valentine’s Day Fete. The candles have me swooning! So stinking cute. Also a sweet treat recipe and adorable little decor craft.

Trying to get a little crafty for this year’s VDay gifts? Try your hand at these DIY  Valentine’s Tea Bags for all the tea lovers in your life. They’re seriously too cute and can be super personalized. Which always makes a gift extra special!

His & Hers Valentine’s Day Looks – Snazzy date night out with your beau? Get a little outfit inspiration for the both of you from Julia and Thomas. Julia’s skirt and blouse combo are providing me some serious inspiration for Joshua and I’s date night this weekend.

Presenting someone special with flowers? Want to make it extra special? Arrange it yourself with these floral arranging tips. How sweet would that be to say you made it just for them? I might be practicing these tips for a couple upcoming wedding events.

Pink Velvet Oreo Cupcakes -Red velvet cake is a typical Valentine’s Day go to but why not pink velvet? With a little surprise in the middle. What’s not to love? Plus the frosting looks seriously to die for. My mouth is legit watering right now as I write about these things! Might just be making these for myself 🙂

Strapped for cash this Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry you’re not alone! Or simply trying to spice up your typical dinner and a movie date night? Take a look at these 20 Free Date Ideas. My top two picks would be to go on a hike and drive around to a couple open houses. I’ve always loved checking out open houses and how fun would that be to do with your sweetie.

Need the perfect sweet treats to present to your gals this weekend? These two Galentine’s Day recipes are incredibly easy and over the top delicious. Not to mention perfectly themed for the day.

Kiss Meringues – Make something sweet, light, and overly adorable for all the loves in your life. I myself may be whipping these up as I’ve never made anything like them before. Tell me these aren’t the cutest little things you ever seen?

Valentine’s Day Bar Cart – Wanting to throw a cocktail party for all your single ladies? Or host one with your beau for all your couple friends? Check out Jessica’s pink and red bar cart for a little inspiration to step up your bar cart style! She also has tons of drink recipes on her blog incase you’re in need for some spirits inspo too.
