2. Sweet Treat. You’ve got fifteen minutes, right? Whip up this easy (you can even make it ahead of time) “Cupid’s Cloud” raspberry and cream dessert from the fabulous blog A Pretty Life. It’s romantic enough for the two of you, but it’ll also please a crowd. Winning!

Raspberry Cream
step up your game and present this in wine glasses. you have some, right?

3. Cards. L’s friend Lauren went Pinteresting and made adorable valentines for her daughter’s class (a riff on the one below). You could also go old-school with retro kiddie valentines from the Dollar Store.

4. The perfect gift. Guys are under a LOT of pressure on Valentine’s Day. Come on, get him something too. Think out of the box (zing!) and put together a cute a grab-bag of his favorite things.

these are a few of his favorite things.

behind the scenes: atlanta gift mart.

Happy Monday, glitter girls!

J and I had a fantastic weekend in Atlanta, shopping for Social and Dish at the Atlanta Gift Mart. Just like when we went to MAGIC in Vegas, we’ll let our behind-the-scenes pics tell the story…

Lucky May + Apps
we started our weekend off with a strategy meeting (reading Lucky Magazine for inspiration!) and appetizers at j’s house.
Essie Sand Tropez
of course we had to have matching nails for the weekend: sand tropez by essie is the perfect nude.
Leather Shorts + Sweater
headed to dinner in faux leather shorts,  fisherman sweater and heels from social.
Tweed Blazer + Lace Skirt
J in an H&M tweed jacket, Forever 21 lace shorts and Jessica Simpson heels.
Ahi Tacos
these ahi tacos at del frisco’s grille were amazing.
Black Eyed Pea Hummus
i’m going to try to recreate the black-eyed pea hummus that came with these pickled vegetables.
Books
we’re super excited about these entertaining books we ordered for dish.
White Tree
we fell in LOVE with this white tree. we’ll use it to display jewelry at social!
French Bull Dishes
these bright French Bull dishes were a no-brainer for dish.
French Bull Dishes
this display sent us on a (ultimately successful!) search for red tables.
Wooden Display Shelf
we loved this rustic shelf for a store display.
Snakeskin Sawhorse Desk
when we hit it big, we’ll set up an office with matching snakeskin sawhorse desks (two’s company).
Cheese Plate
we munched on cheese and had some wine at silver linings, one of our fave showrooms. there’s a reason we scheduled that appointment for 430pm. #happyhour
Champagne...on tap
met up with some of our Atlanta friends at lure after our last showroom appointment. champagne on tap? sign us up.
Scallop Skewer
we each ordered one of these delicious scallop skewers for a quick bite.
White Wicker Chair
we started our saturday at IKEA, searching for store fixtures. how cute is this white wicker chair for displaying pillows at dish?
Ikea Pod Chair
i almost bought this cool pod chair for baby joe–it has a little shade you can pull down, like a cocoon!
Mirrored Chest
we got a little distracted shopping for ourselves at z gallerie.
Hummus
finished our shopping with a late lunch at yardhouse in Atlantic Station. hummus and an ahi salad…yep, we order the same things everywhere we go.
Ahi Salad
ahi crunchy salad.
Patio at Yard Haus
it was a gorgeous day in atlanta, so we enjoyed the patio and a glass of wine. cheers!
