February 14th Snuck Up Again, Didn't It?

Although many of us are still accidentally writing 2015 on checks, it's already February, folks! Not just February - MID-February - almost Valentine's Day. It's hard enough to snag a last minute reservation here in Nashville on most weekends, let alone a holiday that lures out even the most reclusive. We're here to bail you out with a few ideas to treat your sweet one, even if you almost dropped the ball (again).


Guys: Sneak onto her Pinterest account and pick a dish that she recently pinned. Not only will she be excited to cook a dish that she's been wanting to try with you, she'll also be impressed by your thoughtfulness.

Gals: Surprise him with one of his all-time favorite dishes, even if you need to call his mom for ideas. He can be your sous chef or give him a special whiskey to sip on while you cook. Your dish may taste better after a couple drinks anyway, right?


Guys: Who doesn't love a good brunch? There are so many delicious options around town and many restaurants will offer a special menu or cocktail to celebrate. We love to get restaurant ideas from Nashville Guru because their site sorts restaurants by neighborhood.

Gals: Treat your guy to Tennessee Brew Works' annual craft beer and chocolate pairing event kicking off at noon on Saturday and Sunday.


Guys: With Valentine's Day on a Sunday, enjoy some alone time before another busy work week. Bite the bullet and suggest a Rom Com, or at least include one in a list of options.

Gals: Winter is the best time to catch up on the shows that your guy has been wanting to see. Binge watching a show together can be romantic.


Pick up a bottle of wine and a few Olive & Sinclair chocolate bars and enjoy your own wine and chocolate pairing.


Grab your friends and hit up a brunch spot, then head to Poppy & Monroe in Germantown for some nail TLC!

Super Bowl Party Ideas

Get ready folks! The best couple of hours of commercials are just a few days away. If you're looking for some fun ideas to jazz up your hot wings and beer Super Bowl party, look no further. TOUCHDOWN!


Astroturf anything and everything! Here are a couple of places to incorporate the plastic (is it plastic?!?) good stuff:

1) Table decor - Instead of a regular tablecloth, astroturf your buffet table for a fun football look.

2) Pennants - Make a statement with astroturf mixed with and brown paper pennants.

3) Koozies - Keep track of your beer with an astroturf koozie. Use a chalk pen to write your name on the astroturf. 


Whip out that icing, girl. It's time to draw that white stitching on just about any brown food you can think of! For those who need a little guidance on football-friendly foods, check out the below list:

1) Cookies - Duh. Draw to your hearts desire. Gingerbread cookies work well for consistency and color.

2) Ice cream sandwiches - Obviously they're not quite the right oval shape, but you get the picture.

3) Deviled Eggs - Use a little bit of green pepper or jalapeño to create the "stitching". 


For those who aren't 100% enthralled by the actual football game, here are some fun football-themed games to play during halftime (or through the whole game, if you are so inclined). 

1) NFL Mascot Matching Trivia from Moms & Munchkins 

2) Football Game Bingo from Play. Party. Pin.

3) Football Tic-Tac-Toe Bingo from One Charming Party 

4) Super Bowl Trivia from Diva Girl Parties 

Nashville Vendor Feature: Striking a Pose with Jen & Chris Creed

This week, we had the pleasure of being photographed by Jen & Chris Creed Photography! Despite the early Monday morning rain, we had a blast kicking off our week with them. Between sips of coffee sodas and bites of seasonal scones, we snapped the below pictures (and a few bloopers that won't see the light of day). This husband and wife duo is talented, charismatic and delightful. They made the shoot so easy and comfortable. Jen & Chris, we look forward to working with you again soon!
