DIY Idea for A Romantic Date Night

We love romance and romancing our significant others. There is something so wonderful about the little things that make “I love yous” seem like an understatement.  I adore this incredibly sweet and romantic do- it- yourself date night idea because not only is it affordable, but a wife or husband, fiancé or fiancée, girlfriend or boyfriend can easily create this thoughtful date night. A special thanks to Melissa Disston Photography for capturing our DIY date night.

1. Plan an evening to make dinner for your significant other. You can use candles or a bouquet of flowers to beautify your dinner table.  Have your table all set up but keep the plates to the side so you can serve s/he as the meal progresses and not ruin the surprises.

2. On the inside of every plate write words of affirmation to your guy or gal. Consider them little love notes expressing qualities you absolutely love about him or her.

3. After every course s/he finishes, in our example soup, salad, entrée and dessert, s/he will find a surprise message on the inside of their plates and bowls. This is so simple but what a way to surprise them with sweet little nothings.

4. If you’re surprising your gal, beware that she will most likely want to save and display those love letter plates! Life is busy and sometimes we forget to stop and appreciate the ones we love most. Here’s to our loved ones. Enjoy dinner!

~ 1 Black or White Paint Pen

Engagement Party: Backyard and Photos

Last week we blogged about the how to’s of planning an engagement party. We received such positive feedback from you, we wanted to take it a step further and present some inspiration for engagement party themes and decor.

How cute is the black fence adorned with the couple’s engagement pics? All you need is the couple’s photos and you already have your main decor. I love the idea of a hanging frame used for a fun, chic photo shoot for a couple’s close family and friends to enjoy. You can even add a few more frames to incorporate a larger group. Personally, I love to capture every moment on camera; I received the nickname “hoto” which drop the “p” in photo to start with “h” for Heather and that’s what my friends came up with. My dear friend and Yes Girl, Lindsay, went as far to say my room in High School looked like Kodak threw up on my walls! I would like to think I have better taste now which is why I created this engagement party board inspired by photographs. It is simply lovely.

2. Ever wanted your hair to be longer over night?! My hair is finally long after about 3 years growing it, but if you need a little quicker solution try these hair extensions! I am giving a shout out to my friend Toni who is very talented at putting in hair extensions. You would never tell the hair was fake! If you live in Orange County and are thinking about getting longer hair. Contact her! Tell her I sent you and she will give you 10% off! toniand7@gmail.com

Hair After:

3. Now that you have a cute dress and amazing new hair, why not add a fantastic headband? These are a few of my favorites I found on Luciabella1 etsy’s page. You can use them to dress up or dress down depending on your event.
