I know, I know, today is Valentine’s Day (Happy Love Day, friends!), but don’t most people typically celebrate mid-week holidays on the weekend? I do, at least. Weekend Valentine’s Day celebrators, here’s a sweet idea for you. Katie Meyers of Meyers Styles decided to spread the love this year with a bubbly V-Day brunch for more than two. Check out her fun, festive and simple entertaining ideas.
Host a Valentine’s Day Brunch
Let’s just be honest, when you’re a kid and there’s a giant wrapped gift sitting in front of you with a card on top, the last thing you’re looking at is the card. (I mean, thanks for the “happy birthday” Mom, but I just really want the baby doll.) Now, with Hallmark Card Presenters for Kids, they’ll be reaching for the card first. Featuring cute animals, cool textures and creative details, these presenters make greeting cards exciting for kids. And they’re especially perfect for making a sweet statement this Valentine’s Day.
The best part? Kids can hold onto their cute character long after Valentine’s Day ends. They’re perfect for storing small treasures. It’s a gift within a gift!

Welcome to our newest D-Happ series, Tuesday Huesday. Each week, we’ll share a new color combination inspired by a photo we love, whether it’s an amazing designer space, the label on a vintage jar or a confetti-inspired party backdrop.
Since we’re a mere two days away from Valentine’s Day, today’s bedroom color palette is all about hot pink. It’s a classic color, but it feels modern when paired with warm gray, dusty pink and bright turquoise. The white, black and navy accents keep it from being 100-percent girly. (It’s a mere 90-percent girly.)

I mean, nothing will soothe your tears this Valentine’s Day like a “Bleeding Heart” cocktail, amiright?
