Valentine’s Day Gifts, Tablescapes & Menus

Hi Friends,

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love the idea of love, finding that person that is your other half. When writing this post, and thinking about why we celebrate Valentine’s Day, I started to think about my favorite love story movies and television programs that I could watch over and over (and I do). I hope when you see the couples I share with you, they make you smile, or if you have never seen the show or movie you ask Alexa or Suri to find it for you. If there is a movie or show you love that is not listed, leave a comment in the comment section in the bottom of the post, so we can fall in love with a new movie. I am also sharing some fabulous Valentine gifts, decor and menu ideas for you’ll. And if your’e like me and not in a relationship this year, spend it with your bestie, your Mom or Dad, or your little ones…Valentine’s Day is about love…so be blessed and grateful to have love in your is a beautiful thing!

This is one of my earliest memories of a love story, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, Paul Newman plays Butch and Katherine Ross plays Etta…and the song “Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head” is playing during this iconic scene.


“Sweet Home Alabama”, is one of my all time favorite movies, my daughter and I have watched it a zillion times. This movie not only steels your heart, but makes you laugh. Jake is played by actor Josh Lucas, and Melanie is played by Reese Witherspoon.


As, the title of the movie, “Serendipity”, says this movie is about a fairy tale chance meeting. Meeting someone and spending a day with someone…and never forgetting them..and how …I guess I don’t want to spoil the movie if you have never seen it…do! Kate Beckinsale plays Sara, and John Cusak plays Johnathan.

This is another favorite movie of mine, it is the Hallmark movie, “Autumn Dream”. Ben is played by actor Colin Egglesfield and Annie is played by Actor Jill Wagner. You will love this sweet movie!

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

I probably do not have to introduce them, Joey (Katie Holmes) and Dawson (James Van Der Beek), of “Dawson’s Creek”, were definitely in a lot of our living rooms during the late 90’s and early 2000’s. A family show that my daughter still watches on reruns along with the t.v. show “Friends”. I loved the whole cast as well.

The movie the “Notebook”, has to be the most romantic movie of all times…we all want to have this type of love…”love goals”. Noah played by actor Ryan Gosling and Ali played by actor Rachel McAdams. A little trivia on Ryan and Rachel were born in the same hospital in London, Ontario.

Valentine’s Day Breakfast Inspiration

Another fun chick flick, is “Friends with Benefits”, starring two all around great actors, who doesn’t love Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. Two complicated modern day career seeking peeps who don’t have time for a serious relationship…hysterical and romantic, you will love it!

Valentine’s Day Dinner Inspiration

I maybe be a little biased picking this movie as one of my favorite romantic movies because it takes place on Cape Cod, my neck of the woods. But, honestly I love this movie “Summer Catch”, starring Freddy Prince, Jr. as Ryan and Jessica Biel as Tenley. Just a fun chic flick and they are both gorgeous!
