Mushy Made Easy – Valentine’s Day Cards and Messages

Finding that perfect Valentine’s Day message can help make the celebration special, but being creative enough to write something personalized and memorable is so difficult! Instead of stressing out about what you’ll write in your Valentine’s Day cards, why not choose a card that makes personalization easy? Cardstore has plenty of Valentine’s Day cards that make being romantic easy; all you have to do is fill in the blank! List some of their favorite things or your favorite memories together, add your initials to the card, and make it as personalized as possible to show how much of your love is in the card.

On the inside of the card, pick a quote from one of their favorite romantic movies to really make your love stand out! If she absolutely loves The Princess Bride, write “As you wish.” inside. If she’s a Tom Hanks fan, include a romantic quote from Sleepless in Seattle like, “I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic”. For a more classic quote, use one from a great movie like Gone With the Wind and write, “You should be kissed. And often. And by someone who knows how”. And if all else fails, the best standby comes from Jerry Maguire with the quote “You had me at hello”.

There’s no easier and sweeter way to show your love this Valentine’s Day than with Valentine’s Day cards from Cardstore that you can personalize with details of your relationship. Think about their favorite romantic movies and add a line from the movie inside to really make them swoon this Valentine’s Day.

How-To: Valentine’s Day Party Invitations

Valentine’s Day has always seemed like the perfect excuse to host a party full of friends and loved ones, yet so few people really use this fantastic holiday to its full potential. Valentine’s Day is often celebrated only by couples or with the exchange of school Valentine’s Day cards between little ones, but to me this holiday featuring pinks, reds, hearts, DIY gifts, and chocolate galore just begs to be celebrated at a Valentine’s Day party between single friends, other couples, or a mix of everyone you know. Who knows, maybe some of your single friends will find love at your Valentine’s Day party?

Cardstore’s selection of Valentine’s Day party invitations feature the sweet and childlike love often associated with Valentine’s Day that make a perfect theme for a Valentine’s Day party for adults or for younger ones. Pick a design you like and add the details of the day to the invitation. Since February 14th falls on a Thursday this year, who not host a party that night or over the weekend? Be sure to include where and when the party will be, RSVP details, and whether your guests should bring something to the party. Send out these invitations as soon as possible yourself, or have Cardstore send the invitations for you, so friends can clear their calendars for your celebration.
