My Grandma still refers to my Grandpa as “my sweet man.” There is something so sweet about enduring love- the kind that lasts through the hard years, poor years, good years, rich years, kids, grandkids, great grandkids and wrinkles.
My Grandpa still looks at my Grandma like she's the only girl in the room (I'm not joking. It's adorable). They still hold hands and kiss, they still argue about how a story should be told, they sing in a choir together and say things like, “I love you, you old foagie.” Isn't it perfectly sweet to see older couples that have still got it?
Can you tell I'm thinking a lot about love? My anniversary and Valentine's Day are in the same week- so I can't help it. I'm especially thinking about lasting love. So in honor of my Grandparents and true love birds everywhere, I'm thinking of making my Valentine's Day a vintage one. A Valentine's Day that says, “We have the kind of love that will last through the years; a classic love, an enduring love. You'll always be my sweet man.”
So if you're a little bit tired of the regular ways to celebrate Love Day, like overpriced flowers and crowded restaurants, here are a couple of ways to create a romantic and classic Vintage Valentine's Day:
♥ Do something old-fashioned together. I think it sounds kind of amazing to do something other than go to dinner and a movie. No? Here are a few of my thoughts:
Walk around downtown together
Slow dance together in your living room
Go on a boat or bike ride
Have a candle-lit picnic
Recreate a classic vintage photo (My favorite is the one of the sailor kissing the nurse.)

Cook a meal together
Read old love poems together (E.E. Cummings, anyone? “I carry your heart with me. I carry it in my heart.”)
♥ Make a playlist of vintage songs to dance to or to have playing while your together. Here's my current list- but add any of your favorites that I've missed...
1: Unforgettable- Nat King Cole
2: I Get A Kick Out of You- Frank Sinatra
3: Taking A Chance on Love- Ella Fitzgerald
4: I'll be Seeing You- Billie Holliday
5: You Belong to Me- Dean Martin
6: They Can't Take That Away From Me- Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
7: Some Enchanted Evening- Perry Como
8: The Nearness of You- Sarah Vaughn
9: Return to Me- Dean Martin
10: Fly Me to the Moon- Frank Sinatra
11: Someone to Watch Over Me- Ella Fitzgerald
12: I'll Never Stop Loving You- Doris Day
13: Have I Told You Lately That I Love You- Ricky Nelson
14: A Kiss To Build A Dream On- Louie Armstrong
15: True Love- Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly
♥ Watch a classic love story together throughout the week or on Valentine's Day:
1. Casablanca- Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
2. An Affair to Remember- Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr
3. His Friday Girl- Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell
4. My Fair Lady- Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn
5. Some Like It Hot- Marilynn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon
6. Singing in the Rain- Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds
7. Sabrina- Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart

8. Notorious- Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman
9. The Philadelphia Story- Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn
10. Roman Holiday- Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck
♥ Give a Vintage Valentine's Day Card. You can buy a pre-made one or find an old love poem and make your own. Here are some examples:

♥ Plan an old-fashioned dessert. Anything from an old Soda Shop would work great.
Soda Shop style Ice Cream Sundae

Go ahead and mix and match any of these ideas. Custom create the perfect vintage Love Day for you and your sweetheart. Wishing you all a sweet day... xoxo.
