There isn’t a more romantic day to ask for the love of your life’s hand in marriage.
Go the old school route by getting a truckload of rose petals, a bottle of champagne, and (LOTS) of candles to set the mood. Who could resist such a timeless romantic gesture?
Count down the days to Valentine’s Day with a variety of special treats; flowers, a trip to the spa, better yet, attend an afternoon Valentine’s day painting event at Ola la!, with complimentary gourmet chocolates and end it all with a home cooked meal and her/his favorite wine before you pop! the question.
Take a last minute getaway trip with just you and your love. Escape the cold of Chicago by spending a weekend somewhere warm, a romantic stroll by the beach side or check in at a luxury hotel. Spontaneous vacations is sure to delight her/him and give you a chance for a private, intimate proposal.

After making it official, be sure to contact us for a tour to reserve our space for your wedding and create your dream wedding invitations!

3. Write a handwritten LOVE letter

A text just doesn’t cut it on Valentine’s Day! Sit down, and surprise your love with a hand written letter OR send us an email with a message for your sweetheart to convert YOUR message into a beautiful, handwritten letter that we then place in our signature wooden LOVE boxes. This makes for a perfect gift treasured for generations to come.

We hope you have a February full of love and romance this year.

May your day be IJORERE, a day that is GRAND!
