Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
I successfully surprised the boys this morning with a Valentine’s breakfast. (Fist Bump)
Michael and I are going out this evening, so I thought a morning fiesta would be the perfect way to celebrate this day as a family.
I love making holidays special. It’s kinda my thing. There’s been years I’ve tried to “skip” the magic, when we’ve had a lot going on. And I’ve always regretted it.
This year, I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate. And when I started looking for the tablecloth, I couldn’t find it anywhere.
So I set out to make my own.
This DIY tablecloth could NOT have turned out any better. It was everything I imagined, and more. And SO STINKIN’ easy.
I just bought a white cotton fabric (enough to cover our round family table) along with a medium point black fabric marker.
Then late last night, I started to write. I honestly didn’t even measure the spaces. I just did my best to write in a horizontal line, and made my way up the fabric. The whole project took about 45 minutes, but it was a mindless 45 minutes. In fact, I did it while watching a movie with my love.
I just love the pattern so much. And I still can’t figure out why this fabric doesn’t exist already?!?!
We had such a wonderful morning. My favorite part was the donuts and milk.
As for the boys? I think the balloons won out, by far.
I hope you are having a lovely Valentine’s Day, wherever you are. I’ve got a new dress I can’t wait to debut. I’ll be posting pics on Instagram*, because getting all dolled up deserves a picture, right?!? Especially when you’re day job means living in sweatpants.
