Ok. I know it is not for everyone, but I just love Valentines day. Yes, its a silly “hallmark holiday”, it makes singles grumpy and all the good restaurants are not only booked, but have an overpriced fixed menu that sucks. I still love it. It automatically takes me back to the homemade shoebox mailboxes we made in grammar school to house the valentines from our classmates. I loved writing out my cards and making sure my favorites went to well… my favorites. Its a perfect time to be filled with pink, white, red and hearts galore. Oh, and of course cupcakes. With less than a month away, here is an inspiration board I created to make the day mature, chic and hopefully give you a reason to throw a fabulous party.
