WOW!! 2018 is here, and it is almost Valentine's Day. The holidays are such a busy time and I feel like January is always a little period of time to relax and recover from all the stress from the Christmas season. My family and I took a little trip to Ruidoso, New Mexico and it was just perfect! It allowed me to take a break, breath and enjoy the quiet of those days in the mountain. We had such an amazing time!
After our little road trip, I felt very recharged and ready to take on 2018 with the best possible vibe. January has already been a great month for my little family and every day is a reminder of how blessed we are to have the beautiful life we have. With that being said, I am ready to welcome February with a grateful heart, fulfilled with love. Valentine's day gives us an opportunity to celebrate love. Yes, love should be the focus of our life 24/365, but February is the month were we take our celebration of love to the next level, with tons hot pink and red balloons everywhere! Chocolates, cookies, and delicious treats. With stuffed animals and flowers, and everything that symbolizes the romanticism in our lives. I am blessed to be married to a man who loves me and tries to show it as often as he can, but I am also grateful for my son's love, for my little pugs' kisses, and I love to feel surrounded by Valentine's vibes everywhere, especially in my house.
When it comes to making life a party, I believe in decorating everything!! Let's make every detail of our days a party. Ribbons, balloons, garlands, tassels!!!
I love to make every celebration as festive as possible. Who ever said that only cakes and cupcakes can have toppers. Look at how adorable these cupcake cups filled with cookies look with a cute topper made with a straw I cut in half and a heart cutout that I made with my Cricut machine.
I think they look absolutely adorable all dressed up.
How amazing is it to make something so simple look so pretty!
I just love these little milk bottles, perfect to pair with the cookies. I used the same straws that I bought at 99 Cents Only store and glued a little chocolate also found at the same store.
A simple chocolate added color and simple embellishment. So cute!!
I also found these little boxes at the 99 Cents Only Store and I just couldn't resist buying them. They have such adorable decorations. I use my Cricut machine to cut out these beautiful Valentine's Day tags. The images were free this week :)
Adding a simple decoration could make anything look lovely, sometimes, it looks so pretty, you don't even want to eat it!
In reality, it is not hard at all! Adding details to your food, drinks, and treats for your celebration could be effortless and make a huge difference on your set ups for any gatherings.
Just like these little cups with chocolate I made. Simple, uncomplicated, but so, so pretty!
Oh! how I love making little things look beautiful!!
I fell in love with this mini foil balloon garland I made. I used these self-inflatable mini balloons I got from Hobby Lobby.
I hot glued them to a ribbon. Look how festive and pretty it looks!!
"I am in love" with how it looks! You can make the exact same garland for only $3.59!
Love is in the air ;)
Have I also mentioned how much I LOVE Hobby Lobby?! They have the most beautiful decorations for every single holiday and for home decor.
Looking for unique, beautiful decor? Hobby Lobby, super definitely!!
I hope everyone has a February filled with love and romance with the company of those who make your life filled with hearts. XOXO
