I just LUVVV when my party girls are in da house!!! Especially when their "guest posts" are overflowing with inspiring goodness!
Latisha has gone above and beyond for us today so make sure you show her some epic social media love! FYI - She rocks and I totally stalk her blog! Shhhhhh!!!
Last week I received an email from Genevieve (aka Superchick/Celebrate Today… the Superchick Way) inquiring to know if I would be interested in writing a guest post for her blog. So, here I am today (*cheesin*) writing my guest post! This is my very first guest post for any blog so please bare with me … I will do my absolute best not to bore you to death. So, let’s get this party started and let’s “Celebrate Today … the SuperTISH way!”
I was given a bloggy mission by the Superchick… mission: focus your post around entertaining. The first thing to come to mind was entertaining for Valentine’s Day. Now, maybe that was a little predictable, but I bet you didn’t predict… that I would be sharing TEN FREE Valentine’s Day printable files!
Before we get to those lovely printables – I’ve decided to break the “Valentine’s Day” entertaining post into 5 different sections:
“All My Single Ladies”
“A lil Something Extra”
“Cool Candy Kid”
“A lil Something Extra”
“Cool Candy Kid”
All My Single Ladies
Okay so does the thought of Valentine’s Day make you cringe? Does the sight of all the pink and red products and fluffy stuff animals in your local Wal-mart annoy you? Are you seriously considering sending yourself flowers and candy AGAIN?
Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you don’t need a significant other to celebrate Valentine’s Day or better yet… did you know that you have SINGLE GIRLFRIENDS/BOYFRIENDS!?
That’s right let’s make this Valentine’s Day about you and your single friends this year. After Googling 1,000 websites I found absolutely nothing (sorry)! Just Kidding… I found some awesome ideas and maybe you’ll find something useful you can incorporate into your V-day and make it special this year:
1. Single Cruises: These cruises are awesome and usually cost $100.00 or less! Round up a group of your friends and wear your favorite red/black dress, eat a lovely dinner, dance, laugh, and meet new people! Just Google “Valentine’s Day Single Cruises” in your area.
2. Movie Night: Round up a group of your friends/family and make it a movie night! Just sit around indulge in chocolate and watch all of your favorite movies. You can even do a “gift exchange” pull names out of a hat and buy each other Valentine’s Day gifts. The opportunity to spend time with people you already have “relationships” with (family/friends) is what Valentine’s Day is all about.
3. Throw a Party: Throw a small intimate party for yourself and several of your “single” friends/family. Find a theme you’re interested in and entertain! If you don’t want to throw an “adult” party you can have the kids join in and have a “Single Parent” party filled with activities (i.e. baking and decorating heart shaped cookies, crafting cards, playing board games, playing the Wii, etc.)
So, you’re a cheapskate and you want to do something special for your significant other, but really don’t have the money. Well, I found the cutest idea on: The City Sage Blog
This beautiful tablescape cost the designer only $60.00 and if you’re a true party girl to the heart then it would most likely cost you NOTHING, because you already have all of the supplies! As you can see the table was covered with three different colors of Crepe Streamers (which usually average about $1.25 each), three candle holders and candles, four candy dishes, four glass plates, silverware, and some sweets thrown in here and there and voila!
