Happy Galentines Day! / Flower Vibes TX Flower Arrangement Class

This past weekend I had the pleasure to attend a floral arrangement class taught by the girls behind Flower Vibes TX and hosted by Tidbits Houston and Emerson Rose.

Right when I walked in, I was greeted by not only the amazing sight and smells of the flowers that I knew we’d be working with but also local donuts, sweet treats, and rose. What more could a girl want, right? However, that was just the beginning as the lovely girls behind the whole invite warmly greeted me and were also super helpful throughout the whole event.

I won’t lie, I came in with a reservation or two and was also wondering what the class would be like, as it was what some would classify as pricey. Twenty minutes into the class, though, I quickly realized that the price tag was worth it and also very reasonable considering the quality of flowers that we used.

Making a floral arrangement from the ground up was also way more challenging than I thought it would be. Every time we would add a new type of flower or greenery, I always felt the need to rearrange. There was one point where I wondered if I even had room for anymore flowers because it seemed so full to me! Overall, I learned a lot (we were even taught how to fold our rose petals to create a more artistic look) and gained a huge amount of respect for those who do this on a daily basis.

I hope each and every one of y’all has treated yourself to something this week, in honor of Valentines Day. If there’s one thing that I’ve done, whether I’m dating someone or not, it’s treating myself to something around Valentines Day. Self love is important, y’all.

Oh and to all the girlies out there–Happy Galentines Day!

P.S. I got my red dress off of Amazon and was just over $20. What a deal!

5 Unique Gifts for Valentine’s Day

5 Unique Gifts for Valentine's Day_2018

 

T-Shirt / Ring / Coffee/Wine Glass / Essential Oils Set / Plush Corgi Bouquet

 

For those looking for any last minutes gifts but still wanting something a bit more unique than the average flowers and chocolate–look no further! Whether or not you’re looking for a significant other or something cute for a friend, any of the above will be sure to make their day. 

The key to this Hallmark holiday is to honestly just remember to your loved ones and let them know that you’re thinking about them. In the end, this holiday is about love and cherishing others, so even just a phone call (NOT a text…y’all can spare a couple of minutes smh) or a card in the mail can make a huge difference.

Happy Valentines Day and 1 Year!

I started Short Sweet and Lovely on last year’s Valentines Day. Since that day, not only have my posts changed but so have I. Change is inevitable and really, the best thing to do when change comes your way is to try and embrace it.

No matter what you have planned for Valentine’s Day, please try to do something a little different today than what you would normally do. Make something you never have made before–for example, I’m making cheesecake brownies for the special person in my life. Maybe you can watch a cheesy movie you never thought you’d watch. Whatever you decide to do, make it special in your own unique way. Of course, while you’re making it suit your fancy, listen to some amazing music! Below are some of my favorite mushy gushy tunes.

Enjoy the tunes and have a wonderful Valentines Day! Also, thanks to everyone who has stumbled upon my blog throughout the past year! 🙂

Happy Valentines Day!!!
