Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have the perfect gift idea that keeps on giving all year long. Sparkly jewels and long stemmed roses are great, don’t get me wrong, but this Date Night Promise Bouquet will have you and your love having fun all through 2017.
Your bouquet can be whatever you like from lilies to sunflowers, even the classic roses. I went with my favorite flower, the tulip (aren’t these just so lovely??) A dozen is already the typical bouquet size, but it also represents the 12 months of the year. This brings up a fun possibility of the date night gifts being spread out one a month – you could even assign the month on the tag.
Step 1: brainstorm and write down your date night ideas, allowing space for cutting.
Step 2: laminate your date night sheet – this will keep them safe all year long.
Step 3: cut out your date night strips. I used a paper cutter for ease and uniformity.
Step 4: punch a hole into one end of each date night strip and thread twine through.
Step 5: secure date night tags to flower stems (don’t cut off the flower’s circulation) with a simple bow.
Add your flowers to a water-filled vase…
… and top with a Hallmark Signature Valentine’s Day Card! These are premium, handcrafted greeting cards that are guaranteed to wow your significant other. How amazing is this bow and arrow card I found?
Finding the right card can be difficult. I’m totally the person that stands in the card aisle at Walmart for an hour, picking up, opening and putting back 100 cards before I decide on the right one. Walmart has a HUGE selection of Hallmark Valentine’s Day cards and some of the best are sitting right in the “Hallmark Signature” section.
