Valentine’s Day for me is all about love (of course) but, it is often about having the opportunity to tell my friends that I love them in addition to my husband. I was always a fan of giving out Valentine’s at school. This year I really wanted to focus on self-care and sharing with my friends an opportunity to take some moments out of the day to enjoy some very much needed “me time” with a few friends.
See these party tips on my spot on KATU’s Afternoon Live:
The Valentine’s Spa Day Lunch features a menu of light foods and sweet treats complimented with sparkling wine and cucumber lemon water. It is a perfectly laid back party that includes chatting with friends over a glass of sparkling wine while manicures are drying. If you really want to make this something special, hire a massage therapist or manicurist to come and treat your guests!

Directions: Add your information into the text boxes. You can do this using Adobe Acrobat or even do it in the Chrome browser! Print back and front on card stock in full-color. If you are doing on a home printer you may need to adjust your printer settings to line up the front and back artwork. The card is made with a .25 inch bleed which means you have a quarter of an inch to cut into the design. This helps bring the design all the way to the end of the page. Once cut it will fit in an A7 card.
