Love it or hate it – St. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. While many people might be surprised about this holiday’s less than cherubic origins (martyrs and massacres – oh my!), this holiday is met with equal parts excitement and anxiety every year. Luckily, Friends of Glass has put together a last-minute Valentine’s Day itinerary for those procrastinating cupids, or those looking for a special way to treat themselves. Use any of these glass-inspired ideas and you’ll be making that special someone swoon in no time!
1. Set the Stage
No Valentine’s Day celebrations can begin without some decorations to get you in the spirit. Take a cue from The Daily Haley and fill glass vases and jars with red, white and pink candy. Tie a pretty red ribbon on it and feel the love all around you!
2. Relax with a Classy Glassy Cocktail
This seductive Cherry Fizz cocktail by Style Me Pretty is a perfect way to relax and begin the evening. Not drinking alcohol? No problem! Just replace the champagne and brandy with your favourite citrus-flavoured soda for a bubbly non-alcoholic version. Add a fresh cherry to the rim of your glass to show how much you care.
3. Romantic Dinner
No matter what level your cooking skills are at, any dish you serve will look like a masterpiece if your table is set well. Gather inspiration from A Womens Club blog for special table setting designs for your sweetie. Use glass as accent pieces to really make your night feel elegant.
4. Gifts for Her or Him
This homemade Valentine’s Day gift is a perfect way to give your honey a secret message that’s a lot more fun than a traditional card. Follow the simple instructions at My Sister’s Suitcase and you’ll have a unique and thoughtful gift for a loved one in no time!
5. Decadent Dessert
No Valentine’s Day is complete without a sinfully delicious dessert. These sweetheart cupcakes by Foodie are a sweet and special way of saying ‘I love you’ with chocolate. Try pairing them with strawberry milk in glass bottles for an extra special treat!
