How to Make your Person Feel Loved

How to Make your Person Feel Loved By Francesca Navarro

When it comes to making your person feel loved, you truly have to focus on one simple thing: making them realize that they are your person. While this includes really tapping into your creative and out-of-the-box side, not thinking too hard about it is just as important. Knowing what they love to do as their own person and what you love to do as a duo is the crucial formula to showing them that they are loved. Keep reading to get some of those creative ideas popping!

Get Personal

            Tapping into the things your partner truly loves is what will give them a day of quality, not quantity in overly-sweet chocolates and stuffed teddy bears. Music goes such a long way in our book and is scientifically proven to bring out emotion. Start working on making a personal video with all of your best pictures or burn them a CD with all of the songs that seem to perfectly represent your relationship. Looking for more of a personalized date idea? Always feel free to kick it at home with all your favorite candy, drinks, and classic movies.

            Taking them to a place of great memory will most likely make them melt. Think back and ask yourself some brain-picking questions. Where was the first place you met? Your first date? Thinking back to the places where you first kissed, fell in love, laughed till you cried together, just cried together, or simply realized your loved one was the shit can get your creativity sparking for an epic date! This could be an ice cream parlor, coffee shop, record store, or just a hole-in-the-wall bar. Don’t think too hard but again, tap into that brain!

Create Something (Together)

            This can also apply to thinking out of the box for some. Choosing something you’re both good or terrible is what will make this fun. Have some of those Tasty videos saved from your Facebook feed? Shop and get the ingredients together to get excited about making it! We recommend this amaaaazing dish that’s easy to make but tastes like you went to the best restaurant in town. Complement this with a desert that you’ve always wanted to try, or reward yourselves by putting in the effort with some good ol’ DQ or Baskin Robbins.

You can also get a little craftier with it and create something both together and for each other. Whip out the construction paper, glitter, and magazines to make each other some heart-felt but funky Valentine’s Day cards. As this can be somewhat basic, make sure to include an inside joke or a lyric from some of your favorite songs. Just think of it as the chance to make the most epic card ever for the classmate you always wanted as your Valentine back in grade school. The love will show!

Recap: Nolan Haus Launch

Nolan Haus Phoenix Rentals

We are so excited about our recent launch and finally getting to share with you some of the details about it! We know that you might have some questions about who we are and what Nolan Haus is. 

First things first, we build luxury boxwood foliage walls, which we know is some fancy wordage so, we build fake grass walls. The walls are the perfect backdrop or accessory  for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, corporate events, expo booths, and really whatever your heart desires + anything that your imagination can dream up!  

We, Ryan + Blake, are high school sweethearts who are both in the wedding and event industry. Ryan thought of the idea and hand-made each wall, while Blake turned it into a local business here in Phoenix.  

For our launch, we had the privilege of working with some of the best wedding professionals in the Valley, including Ryann Lindsey Photography, Cass and Co. Films, The Petal Theory florists, and Soho63 wedding venue. With some great additions like our model, Francesca and her sister as our wonderful makeup artist, and the perfect dress + headpiece ensemble from Brilliant Bridal, there was so much excitement about our launch that made for an unbelievably beautiful start to this business of ours. 

After having the pleasure of attending open houses at some of the best venues in Arizona, it got us thinking about some creative ideas on how to use the walls. This can include vintage picture frames, monogrammed letters, a string of lights, a tassel banner, curtains, draped florals, pictures, twine, burlap, a backdrop for sweetheart seating, a wall for guests to leave their favorite memories of you, or the perfect backdrop for a #hashtag photo booth. Stay tuned for some pictured inspiration like this in our next couple blog posts! 

We truly want to thank everyone that was a part of getting Nolan Haus up and running. We could not have made it happen without you all and appreciate the love and support. We also want to welcome all of you to join us on our journey by following along on the blog for ideas and inspiration!
