Interesting ways of spending Valentine day on low budget
1. Want a classic dinner date?
If you really have your heart set on going out to dinner, try heading out the night before or day after so that you’re not locked into a prix fixe menu (and you don’t have to battle the crowds!).
2. Cooking together
More often than not you can whip up a restaurant quality meal at home so enjoy your time cooking dinner together and then treat yourselves and go out for dessert.
3. A night out (literally)
If you live somewhere that you can enjoy the weather outside, pack a dessert and hot chocolate or wine and head for a night under the stars
4. Valentine’s Day Brunch
Since Valentines Day is on a Saturday this year, try a romantic brunch is just as much fun as a dinner. An added bonus: it’s a little easier on the wallet.
5. Game night
Have a game night with your honey. A little healthy competition is always fun and the winner can make their own stakes (foot massage anyone?!)
6. A “love” of the arts
Find a museum or local gallery that has a “love-themed” exhibit and check it out
7. V-day bar crawl
Do a mini bar crawl with your honey, and at each location toast to something you want to do together in the coming year.
8. Fondue for two
Going out for fondue can often be expensive and really time consuming. Skip the extra step of heading to the restaurant and make fondue at home!!
So Valentine is just around the corner and you are wondering what to give to your significant other.. We have done a little research on flowers and their meaning.
You’ve probably heard that “a rose is a rose is a rose,” but while perfectly poetic, the Victorians wholeheartedly disagree. Flower meaning dictionaries were quite popular during the Victorian era — for instance, pink carnations meant “I will never forget you,” and chrysanthemums meant “truth.” Though people didn’t necessarily send secret messages through buds and bouquets, the meanings were still important to people during that period.
If you planned on delivering this classic choice to your significant other, you’re in luck. It means “love.
But maybe save these babies for a melancholy moment. They mean “a heart unacquainted with love.”
Deliver the gift of “grace” when you send a friend these sweet blooms.
These bashful beauties signify “modesty.”
A quirkier hue calls for a quirkier meaning; violet shades lend themselves to “enchantment.”
Though it may not be as striking as the classic red rose, this deeper shade is more subtle and represents “unconscious beauty.”
An energetic, curious color comes with a meaning to match: “fascination.
You wouldn’t think it cruel to gift someone a bouquet, but these sunny flowers imply “infidelity.
They’re dramatic, they’re romantic and they’re versatile, so they look perfect whether you’re planning a traditional affair or something more relaxed
Gaga for greenery
Herbs like rosemary and mint, lemon leaf, magnolia leaf, ivy, smilax and maidenhair fern are being strung together and used in surprising ways — as table runners or chair swags, to frame cocktail menus, to redefine tent ceilings or to give chandeliers a soft edge.
