25+ Valentine’s Day Ideas & Giveaway!

I love Valentine’s Day. I find it hard not to like a holiday where chocolate is king and people share their mushy feelings with one another. It’s a time for love and I love it! Besides, the décor is pretty cute, too.

Now, because I love Valentine’s Day I go all out. I’m talking decorations, cards, candy, food…the works! It’s basically a major holiday for me. I’d like to point out that I’ve always been this way – regardless of whether I have a romantic someone to share the day with. Valentine’s Day is a day to be celebrated with someone you love, be it your significant other, your parents, your children, your furry friends…you get the idea!

Since I love Valentine’s Day so much, I thought I’d share some of my favorite ideas for making your Valentine’s Day the most amazing day ever. (By the way, make sure to read all the way through for a chance to win an awesome Valentine’s Day package!)

There are so many ideas when it comes to decorating for Valentine’s Day. While most people go for the traditional pink, red, and hearts look, you can totally use other colors to mix things up. Here are 25 DIY Valentine’s Day Decorations from Brittany Estes, like this adorable (and easy!) topiary:


Next, there’s the food. There’s nothing like cooking up a special dinner for two, or making a dessert that’ll make them think they’ve been struck by Cupid’s arrow.


I love this Strawberry Sweetheart Cake!
