Sweet Nothings

nullnullnullnull

Good morning, loves! How is the week treating you so far?

Today marks 1 week before Valentine's Day and I'm already starting to get excited for the day. Every year there's a discussion as to what we want to do for Valentine's Day. Some years we make a big deal of it, reservations, gifts, etc. But other years we keep it very low key. Dinner at home, a nice bottle of wine and something sweet to eat.

This year we've decided to go the latter route. Very low key. Maybe flowers, some pretty lingerie and something sweet to end the night with.

I know not all of you celebrate Valentine's Day but for those of you who do, what do you have planned?

Enjoy the day, sweets!

xoxo

Your plan sounds very nice to me! This year I won't even celebrate because my boyfriend and me live in different cities and I have an exam on that very day ... oh well we will make up for it I hope :) Have a lovely Valentine's dear <3

We always have Valentine's Day at home :)

shopgirl said...

Your low-key Valentine sounds like a great idea Dawn!

Honestly, I always forget about Valentine's Day....isn't that terrible, but now that I'm reminded of it, I might think of something to do .-) with the hubby.

Have a wonderful week sweetie!

Sounds wonderful!! I have no idea what we shall do, we never plan anything!! Maybe have a nice dinner with the girls then do something on our own. I hope you have a wonderful time no matter what you may do!! Gorgeous images!! xox

Happy Tuesday! xoxo

cachemirevictim said...

Great plan! Dinner at home with an exellent bottle of wine!

The enchanted home said...

Love all that devine color. Every year we go to dinner with my best friend and her husband, its a tradition and we have done this for the last maybe 12 years or so...always look forward!

Chelsea said...

First of all these images are gorgeous. David will be out of town on valentine's but when he gets home I like to plan something silly and unexpected to make him happy. I would love to throw a party for all the people I love, but the wedding planning has taken over my life. xo

classiq said...

A romantic evening is always welcome. Have a beautiful day, Dawn! xo

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Beautiful, love! :) We're with you... some years we go all out but then others it's nice to make a sweet night of it at home! :) Y'alls night sounds fabulous, doll! I think we'll do the same but then the following weekend we're slipping away to Charleston. Hope you had a lovely weekend! xoxo

Liz {Sequins And Stripes} said...

I will be doing something similar, lots of wine, a cheese plate, and snuggling up on the couch! The best way to go.

Alex {Things That Sparkle} said...

I love spending special nights in! We go out to the same restaurant every year, so looking forward to it!

Annie said...

Sounds perfect ;) No big plans for us either.. a night like yours most likely!

Dancing Branflake said...

I LOVE Vday! Give me pink and flowers and yummy treats any day and I'm a happy gal. Lovely images!

prettymeggy said...

hope in high heels said...

Lovely images - I love all those gorgeous shades of pink and peak. This Valentines, my lovely husband and I will be on opposite sides of the world from each other... a hug when I get home is the only present I want after not having seen him for a month!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

We don't have anything planned and i like it that way - just us and some good food!

Melisande said...

i'll be in school all day until late, so we're celebrating a couple days early with dinner at a favorite restaurant...creme brulee and champagne! ;)

christine {bijouandboheme} said...

Such a pretty post:) We're the same- some years we go out and others we stay in...mostly depends on if it is mid-week...if so, we tend to cozy up at home:)

rolala said...

Your low key celebration sounds lovely and romantic. We usually like to stay in, order sushi and watch a romantic movie. Avoid the crowds y'know ;)

Alexa said...

Low key is the way to go! Love the images, Dawn!

Julia - the Urban Slant said...

I prefer something low key! And any excuse for pretty lingerie is good by me.

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

Your plans sound perfect, I like low key:) These images are like candy, and those peonies make me go wild. Would love to have a big bouquet with those colors!

Indie.Tea said...

So pretty and valentine-y!

Tamra {ever swoon} said...

I think we are going low key at home too! Share it with Bella! Looking forward to seeing you tonight!

Punctuation Mark said...

i'll think next year i'll be with that cutie i saw in LA at the conference... haha!!!

B. in the Know said...

Sounds like a lovely plan for the day! Some girls and I that are enjoying our singleness and love Valentine's Day are working out the details but it will involve a fun dinner and cocktails!
Much love,
B

DiamondsandTulle said...

Gorgeous pics as always Dawn! We've done the low-key thing a couple of years in a row already. This year I made reservations for a sushi place I've been wanting to try. Some nice lingerie will be donned. I'm just hoping for some pretty flowers. And we're going to do a mini staycation on the weekend in L.A. (concert and a suite at a fancy hotel). Yeah, I'm sure Vday will be low key again for the next couple of years.

When I was dating my husband, I did all of these elaborate things each Valentine's Day. The bad thing about that is that if you don't do something that's a surprise, it looks like you're letting up! haha I've bought a few small gifts but haven't decided how to present them yet ;) I've been so busy with custom artwork projects, I have a feeling I'll be procrastinating this year until the last minute! ;) You edit your images in such a beautiful way ... these are lovely! Have a wonderful week, Dawn darling ;) ~xoSM

i get to go see my fiance - so i'm super excited for Valentine's day this year! as always, these images are so bright and happy - makes me feel happy. :)

Styleabaad said...

Your plans sounds so nice! My husband is like the most romantic person on earth but he hates Valentines day so we never celebrate it and to be honest I don't really care.

Loving your photos, orange and pink is such a great combination!

Glam Fashionista said...

Whichever way you want to celebrate, have a great one.

pretty pink tulips said...

Ours is usually low key. I'm not sure if we've ever had a major celebration. Hmmm....maybe I should start dropping hints now for next year?!

I'm hosting a bday party for my husband on Saturday night...so we'll keep it mellow next Tuesday. Champagne, chocolates....candlelight!

xoxo Elizabeth

LenoreNeverM♡re said...

Sounds lovely Dawn!
As for me, I"ll be leaving the country for work again, won't be in town to celebrate...hope he'd understand~

Danielle said...

Hi Dawn,

We are planning a low key evening as well. Avoid the crowds and have dinner at home. Some wine and something chocolately for desert is all I need to make me happy : )

Love your pictures today!

Danielle

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

oh how I love the peach/pink combo...so sweet and romantic! I think we're going pretty low-key this year, too...it usually turns out more relaxing and intimate, right? Either way, I'm looking forward to it! (c:

Ann On and On... said...

Even though I don't celebrate Valentine's Day...I am always curious to hear about others.

What did you do for a "big deal" Valentine's?

Mrs. Pancakes said...

We are keeping it low key...home and dinner!

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Haha my day is boring! It's swimming, school, and work! Probably some fun treats though. I'm surprising my friend! (Girl--we love Vday even if we're single)

Lonely Wife Project said...

We haven't celebrated in a few years, but I'm thinking I need to bring some spice (and lingerie) back into life ;)

Toni-Yvonne said...

I do not celebrate valentines day, though I can definitely appreciate that delightful night you have in store!! Beautiful pictures, so romantic and delicious

Isabel said...

im single this year for the first time since valentines 2007. ill probably eat some chocolate. and consider joining an online dating website. haha.

Leslie said...

I'll take pretty lingerie and/or flowers over the box of candy .. and always something sparkling to drink. If we don't feel like dealing with the crowds or don't make a reservation ahead of time, being home is fine.

Gorgeous images! I love those pink and orange roses!
I'm not sure yet about what I'm doing for valentine's day but hopefully something outrageously pampering--this has been a hard week so far!

M.E said...

That sounds like a good plan!
We don't celebrate Valentines day as we prefer to surprise each other with romantic notes, dinners and flowers when we least expect it ;)

*Glam Chameleon* said...

If we start to celebrate Valentine's day in the lingerie like on the first photo, for sure it would be marked forever!:D I don't have any plans, ever, but I might think about something this time, your posts give me so much inspiration!:)

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

I LOVE love Valentine's Day, and I'm so excited this year! We love to do the same as you - alternate between a low-key very romantic night at home some years, and other getting dressed up and go somewhere special. This year we are going out, but due to schedules we will celebrate on Friday. Sometimes I like that better, because crowds and traffic can make everything a little more difficult. :) Have an amazing day, darling!!!
