Our days get pretty crazy and I’ve noticed over the years that the mornings (when I can wake up early like my hubby) are some of the best times to catch up and spend time together. This year, I thought of finding a way to celebrate Valentine’s day together but differently (instead of just the usual dinner out) and share in breakfast in bed – complete with mimosas and donuts!
Making moments special doesn’t always take much. I added bit of festive fun with ‘love’ themed napkins; I also added these super cute hand calligraphy ‘love’ gift tags from Laura Hooper. Sometimes you’ve got to think outside the box and remember, use what you have! I picked up these donuts from local donut shop District Donuts – they have unique flavors and definitely love supporting a local small business. We have a cute side table in between two arm chairs at the foot of our bed so I topped the glass table with a gold placemat (#usewhatyouhave) and then set the platter of donuts atop (needed some dimension) – adding some greenery (especially given the darker nature of the donut selection) gave a fresh look to the setting.
All you’ve got to do is cheers to your love and enjoy a little sweet together 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day!
