8. Head Liner

So I love this idea  (just a random picture), but obviously don’t have big block light up block letters.

Here is what I think would work and I will get back to you when I try this… School just started so I have been neglecting my favorite hobby a bit =(

Black poster board, trace words of choice (Love, Be Mine, Me & You ect), punch out wholes with a whole puncher and pop in Christmas lights—then Voila, hang up and plug in?!?! Or could this be a fire hazard?!? Seems like a pretty sweet idea if it wasn’t and it worked =)

9. Table Lighting

While cooking together might be something you do every day, there’s no reason it can’t be special. The twist: Devise a unique menu that you’ll make together every year on Valentine’s Day (think: all seafood, or an aphrodisiac theme). Start the tradition now and you’ll never have to worry about making last-minute plans in the future.
