Valentine’s Day planner

If you’re anything like me, you need someone to spell out what the expectations are in certain events. And if you’re also like me, you don’t consider the day before last minute. You don’t even consider the day of last minute. You’re just doing things as they come and the day of…well…it’s here and now it’s time to get ‘er done. Thing is, you still want to do a good job and show people that you care, so you race against the clock doing a meticulous job with what little you have and you tell yourself “I’m just doing the best I can.” Because you really are.

So, I have spelled it out for you to make your day easier. 

Don’t know what to do for Valentine’s Day this year? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a Valentine’s Day planner below.
Here’s how Valentine’s Day will go. Because I’m assuming you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Right? No? Ok, pick and choose or just write a nice letter and print it off. Thing is, that’s still great.

Valentine’s Day planner to help celebrate the day

1. Honeycomb heart

You’ve gotten some honeycomb diamonds in your party stash maybe? Turn it into a heart once everyone has gone to bed. I LOVE surprises and love nothing more than to wake up to something festive. It creates a magic in the air. Hopefully your local party supply has a stash of these. Honeycomb heart installation by Melanie from You Are My Fave for Julep

2. Breakfast in bed

3. Heart balloons

Arrow and heart oversized balloons. Again, I like me a surprise. Put this outside the door right before everyone leaves. You know you’ll get a few squeals. Heart balloons by Kelly of Studio DIY.

4. Origami hearts

Remember those neighbors or school kids who NEED a Valentine? There is no time to make something crazy from Pinterest, but there IS time to print something off and fold them. Origami hearts from You are my fave

5. Printable valentines

Again, there’s no time to get fancy, so print off these floral/French Valentines for your loved ones. Printable valentines on Camille Styles

6. Valentine’s Day gift wrap

WAIT! You need to wrap the gift you got! Check out some easy ideas here and here to make your gift beautiful on the outside.

7. Flowers

We all know flowers are expected. But don’t try and order from someone fancy. There’s no time. Pick up some roses from the grocery store and put each one in a different vase.

8. Valentine’s Day dessert

Bake some cupcakes, add pink frosting, and top with these heart cupcake toppers. A perfect way to end the day!

I once had a friend tell me that instead of being disappointed in her expectations not being met for a birthday or other meaningful holiday, she made sure to tell her husband in advance what she wanted. I have a hard time doing this (because can’t they read our minds?!?!) but please pass this Valentine’s Day planner on to your significant other for some ideas. Clearly, not all of them (unless he’s really needing to score some points).
