So I’m still on a Beyoncé high from my Christmas Eve Eve party which prompted me to design this versatile and unique idea for a Valentine's celebration. This theme will work in both a playful environment and a sexy, romantic one. I also like that it can be enjoyed in an intimate couple setting or with a group of friends. You can start the day by leaving a card stating why your special someone is the Bee’s Knees. Then, throughout the day send cute messages or sexy questions like these. For those of you that want to celebrate all month long, try this 30 Day Relationship Challenge. It's a sure way to spark some fireworks and have the romance dialed up in time for Valentine’s Day!
Using hexagon-shaped decorative items are a great way to further develop the theme since they mimc honeycombs. They can be adorned with yellow, white and blush colored roses. You can even add candles or fruit such as grapes or strawberries on the vine. These decorative items can greet you at the entry and flow into any space - be it the dining room, living room, bedroom, or bathroom.
And you already know honey would be the key ingredient for the menu. Because of the stickiness of honey, I’d lean towards finger foods that you can easily feed one another (and lick any remnants from fingers, too). A cheese plate with grapes, berries, honeycomb; Marsala Honey Pears with Gorgonzola; Ricotta, Gorgonzola, and Honey spread; Honey-Pepper Bacon Pops; Honey-Lime Chicken Skewers; Lotus Ice Cream Sundae with Raspberries and Honeycomb would all be perfect options. Enjoy sweat tea and honey, Honeysuckle Mint Juleps, or your favorite wine with the menu. This can be set up picnic style by candle light or in front of a cozy fire. And to kick things up a notch, you can have milk & honey spa treatments at a spa or better yet in home services before “dessert” ;)
With this set up, there is no way that special someone won't BEE Yours this Valentine's Day!
