Five on Friday: Valentines Edition

If it feels like deja vu seeing a "Valentine's Edition" post here, it's probably because it is! I just wrote a "Ten Favorite Things" post for Valentine's Day, but the fun isn't over! For my five today, I'm sharing all things Valentine's Day! If you're not a V-Day person, I'm sorry, but I just have to take full advantage of a holiday all about pink, chocolate, and love! I mean, what's not to like?!

Check out the lovely hostesses: Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina!

If you want to know more about any of these items, just click on the picture or link under it and have at it!  

Valentine's Inspiration

I'll admit it: I'm cheesy. I love the idea of a pouffy, pink, tulle wreath on my door (although I always love a good boxwood wreath, like the one on the right!). However, I think I'd go without the stray candy hearts on this one... The hearts look much cuter in that vase with the tulips! Both of those tablescapes are phenomenal, from the XO balloons, to the gorgeous blooms! This love song garland would be extra sweet to decorate if you and your special someone have a meaningful song. There are so many mushy, over-the-top quotations out there, but I just loved the simplicity of this Johnny Cash gem.

Valentine's Treats

I love that all of these treats are not only delicious looking, but also so darn purty! Except for maybe the red velvet cheesecake ice cream.... But I mean, it's ice cream. Any of those treats would look even better on that precious cake stand!

Valentine's Day Attire

I'll admit I have a youthful style, but I'm not normally a "hearts" girl. I'll make an exception for some of these pieces though! Not sure I'd ever have anywhere to wear that vintage-inspired red dress, but it's just so sassy and fun! The Disney Princess in me (told you I have a youthful style!) is loving these special Valentine's Day 2014 Havianas! If you don't like that bow-tiful Kate Spade coat, I can't relate right now.

Can I be half as clever as all the people who created these cards?! Obviously Olaf is having a moment right now (and deservedly so!), and I love it when cards include candy! It's a win win. Even better- most of the links to these cards include free printables!

Because I'm the most original person ever (not), I had to post the gold monogram Anthro mug... It's just so lovely and affordable, unlike this fantastic Shinola men's watch. (Sorry John, but you will not be receiving this $600 watch!) The heartbeat necklace seems so unique, and the "love" ring reminds me Lauren Conrad's engagement announcement on Instagram. If you're looking for a thoughtful, homemade gift, I love the idea of an Instagram scrapbook! If you're looking to spend less time on a gift, look no further than Tuckernuck's gift bundles! From ski bunnies to beach babes, New Englanders to the life of the party, they have you covered!

What do y'all think? Are you just ready for this "Hallmark Holiday" to finally be over, or are you embracing it?!
