The new year has come and gone, almost so fast it seems like a blur. These days it is out photos, videos and written memories that remind us of these special times when we look back years from now. Now we are about to venture into February and there we are faced with the time of the year when we either long for a love or will go out of our way to remind the love we have how special they are.

Being a social media Influencer and blogger, I wondered in advance how I would creatively express my feelings about Valentine’s day this year to my followers. Of course, I can’t actually wait until that day, because that day is reserved for my Hubby. I looked around town and online to find where to shop for the little things I need to perfect my Valentine’s themed photo shoot. I picked up a few thing here and there around town at the usual spots, such as Dollar General, Target and of course Michael’s, but where I found my biggest selection of fun party favors and photo worthy items was from a new favorite which has been around for a long time. Oriental Trading Company was my new web site to find many of the party and holiday themed trinkets I needed to fulfill my photo fantasy.

Oriental Trading Company is the nation’s largest direct retailer of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, school supplies, toys and novelties. The company has been recognized as one of the Top 20 Internet Retailers based on customer satisfaction, and I am indeed satisfied not only with what I found, but with their prices and quick shipping as well. In just a couple of days time I received my order at my door and I was ready to start of creating my special Valentine’s Day Vintage Picnic.

I encourage you to look carefully at the details in my picnic to see all the little items that together make up my festive Valentine’s fantasy picnic and if you feel inspired, a little romantic or if it just makes you curious, head on over to Oriental Trading website and create your own memories by decorating for a special event, party or even your own fantasy photo shoot you can share with your loved ones. When your done, come back and share your stories or photos with me and let me know about how Oriental Trading Company made your event special.

Until then, Happy New Year and I hope you have an amazing Valentines day with that special someone. Even if that special someone is yourself, treat yourself special this year.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.
