5 Ways to Spend Valentine's Day


The holidays have come & gone and in true LMP fashion, we're on to the next holiday - Valentine's Day!

As a florist, Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I've always loved the idea of showing the ones near and dear to you, how much you care about them. When I was a kid my mom would always me and my siblings our own special card and our favorite treat. Now I spend V-day with my wonderful boyfriend, Liam, and I wouldn't have it any other way!


Valentine's Day is different for everyone depending on where you are in life thats why today we're showing you 5 different ideas on how you can plan to spend V-day!

1 - On a Budget! Okay I can really relate to this! A common misconception about Valentine's Day is that you have to spend a lot of money.... not true at all! A perfect example of how to save a few bucks but while still showing you care is by making this DIY Valentine's Day Banner. Whether your having a little cocktail party with friends or a romantic dinner in with the hubby - this banner is a cute way to write messages to all the special people in your life, and not break the bank!


2 - With the Kids - Valentine's Day isn't just for adults! Get the kids involved with a fun craft like these V-day Inspired Tote Bags. Seri had her kids make them during a playdate, which is a fun way to get them excited about the holiday & keep them busy with friends.

3 - Cozy at Home -  Okay, anyone who knows me, knows I'm a huge home body! Its perfectly fine to spend Valentine's Day at home with your boyfriend or with a friend, but mix it up a little bit with this Red Wine Hot Cocoa. This cocktail, snuggled up under a blanket with some take out..... sounds like heaven to me!


4 - Brunching with Friends - Valentine's Day is a great excuse to set up a cute table, and LMP would never pass up an opportunity like that! A few years back Seri hosted a special brunch for some of Mommy Shorts' work friends and it turned out awesome! This brunch was the perfect excuse to eat, have a cocktail, and laugh with friends. What more could you ask for?

5 - On a Hot Date - Whether you've been with your significant other for 2 months or 4 years, Valentine's Day is an opportunity to dress up and look hot! Either for yourself or to make that special person remember why they were attracted to you in the first place. This Bright & Bold Lips Tutorial is the perfect way to spice up your look for a fun night out!
