For a romantic Valentine's Day with your significant other, I rented a room with a jacuzzi tub in it. My friend helped me. I bought tule at the fabric store, (looks like wedding veil material) and draped it over the bed with an eye hook in the ceiling. This part I would never do again because now that I think of it, it didn't work very well.
Hi! I love your ideas - especially asking the florist for throw-aways.
I just wrote and posted an article about Valentine's gift giving at my blog at http://talkingaboutlingerie.blogspo ... -woman-wants-for-valentines-day.html
My husband and I just returned from a weekend get-away for our 10th wedding anniversary; I rented a cabin w/hot tub for 2 nights for less than a higher end hotel room would have cost. I placed a map to the cabin in hubby's anniversary card, took the day off work, packed us up for the weekend and stole him from work (with his boss's permission). Aunts and grandmas took care of the girls while we were gone.
HE WAS SO SURPRISED AND AS EXCITED AS A CHILD. He was shocked that I had planned all this without his knowledge and absolutely delighted with the spontenaity (for him - it took me about 6 weeks to plan!)
I, too, packed a "gift basket" with some wine, our wedding glasses & photos, some new lingerie, candles, romantic CD's a movie or 2 and some popcorn - for late night snacking.
I agree w/you and highly recommend taking the initiative once in a while. In the past we have rented an inexpensive hotel room w/hot tub (like Super 8), gotten Chinese take out and some Ben & Jerry's from a gas station and had an evening to remember. Just go, it's so refreshing for the body, mind, and spirit!
