Bake Your Heart Away
This recipe is perfect for a sweet treat at home or a delicious delicacy at your wedding. Do you enjoy lemon shortbread cookies? Well here’s a twist to this bittersweet delight. Take out your heart shaped cookie cutter and try it out on your favorite lemon shortbread recipe. Once the cookies come out of the oven, compliment them with a raspberry glaze. The 3 combinations of bitter, sour, and sweet create a perfect harmony of flavor that you and your guests will enjoy.
Sweet and innocent, with a deadly catch. This drink will knock you up in hysterical flash. A chocolate, covered strawberry in a liquid form, with a splash of coconut malibu to change it’s norm. Now enough with the poetry, here’s the recipe for this margarita I like to call Cupids Poison. In a blender you’re going to need:
1/2 cup ice
3/4 cup of strawberry kiwi juice
A pump of chocolate
1 shot of coconut Malibu
This seductive mixer is perfect as a signature drink to start the party at your wedding, or even to spice up your movie night with the husband! Test this recipe with the lemon raspberry shortbread cookies, a perfect combination for you to enjoy!
A Passion for Writing
They say that writing is the perfect way to let the heart flow and speak for itself. Write a love letter to your loved one and let them know how much you care and appreciate them. A way to preserve this precious moment is by framing both letters side by side; bringing light to the deeper, genuine love you two share.
A Rosy Essence
Take advantage of your Valentines day flowers before they wilt away! In a saucer pan filled with water, add a thick layer of rose petals (preferably red or pink) and place it on the stove set on high. When the color leaves the rose petals and they turn white, turn off the stove and let the water cool. Once the water cools, remove the rose petals and carefully pour your new, natural perfume into a reusable perfume bottle. This idea is perfect for those of you that love natural, floral scents without the overwhelming aura of store bought perfumes. Great for date nights, as a pillow perfume, a bride before “I Do” and as bridesmaids gifts!
Letting Love Grow
We’ve all heard, “If you love something, set it free,” but what about let it grow? Now a days succulents are trending, and it’s becoming popular as a wedding favor gift since they’re easy to grow and take care of. Normally, this is the idea most people picture by “Let Love Grow.” But here is a unique idea that I found interesting and worth recapturing. In 2012, Disney studios released a heart felt movie called “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” The movie is about a couple who heavily want to bear a child. Unable to do so, they put in a box all of their wishes they hope for in a child and bury it in the garden. As if by magic, a child is born and his name is Timothy Green.
Putting a twist to this inspiring movie, here is an idea to let love grow. Write a letter, a promise to your loved one that your love towards them is genuine and infinite. Placing your letter/s and his in a box, bury it in the garden and let your plants flourish above. With each year that passes, your love will continue growing. A beautiful way to symbolize your love.
It was fun decorating Valentines day mailboxes for school when we were young. Getting cards from secret admirers and candy from classmates. But now that we are adults, why must the arts and crafts end? Have a fun date night with your man and decorate your card box together for the wedding! If you both like to do your own thing and put your artistic abilities to the test, then draw a division line on the box and have your guests rate who’s more artistic, the bride or the groom?
This was fun, wouldn’t you say? It was a great way to spend Valentine’s Day. With crafts and roses, cookies and drinks. Try these ideas and your guests will like the way you think. Thank you for your support, and before we say goodbye. A happy Valentine’s day to all, and remember to stay in the Wedding Vibe!
