Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post.
Can you believe Valentine’s Day is this week? I have been loving popping into stores and seeing the pink and red decor. I was gushing to Benjamin when we were shopping how glad I am that Valentine’s Day exists because I am such a girly girl and I love lace, pink, fashion accessories and he just laughed.
Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day? Even if it’s with someone, or just a chill night binge watching a show, you can have a date with a glass of wine, unwind with Decoy.
Decoy is a staple in our home to serve guests for a casual get together and special occasions.
We have celebrated Valentine’s Day the day before, or head to our favorite restaurant (for me it’s the lamb, for him it’s the lobster) but maybe this year we’ll order something in the night of since Benjamin has been traveling so much for work lately and he gets back late Valentine’s Day and sometimes he just wants to be home and rest.
When we were newlyweds Benjamin made sushi reservations at 5 pm and I think we were the first people in the restaurant for dinner, haha! I don’t know why he did that but I’m glad we have eased into married life where we can still have fun and celebrate in a way that fits into our lifestyle at the moment – even if it means a quiet night at home in pajamas or dressing up just because.
Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to wear a red lace dress, or anything with hearts! For dinner you can decorate with heart placemats, red candles, all the sweet details that make the holiday fun to celebrate.
I’m always a fan of buying yourself flowers too – I usually do for blog posts and they bring life to a house. I’m always looking for flowers for our home when guests are coming over, but we usually have fresh ones weekly that I pick up for shooting purposes.
I don’t know what I’d do without food delivery nowadays, do you? I think it makes my life so much easier so I can focus on setting the table or getting ready, or during the week I’m often ordering lunch to be delivered at home because I can’t stop working.
Find your perfect paring with Decoy for this Valentine’s Day, use the Decoy wine finder here. Maybe you can just pick up the wine, and open up a food delivery app and make it a great night!
Sending you lots of X’s and O’s!
