12 Random Declarations of Love for Your Spouse… Just Because!

You don’t need an occasion to show your significant other how you feel! Surprise him or her by doing something on our list. When they ask why, you can answer, “Just Because!”

  1. 12 Random Declarations of Love for Your Spouse... Just Because!Leave them a handwritten love note. Technology makes it so easy to send a love note via email, but it just doesn’t have the same sentiment as a handwritten note. Leave it on the kitchen counter, their side of the bed, on the bathroom mirror… somewhere they will be sure to see it.
  2. Bring on the compliments! Everyone loves to hear how wonderful they are. And although we can never underestimate the romantic touch of a handwritten note, texting has its perks too. At the beginning of the day, text your sweetie: “20 Reasons why I love you!” Then, send them 20 texts throughout the day complimenting all their best qualities.
  3. Spoil them for a day. Forget about cooking, cleaning, and chores. Let your spouse kick their feet up and relax! Can’t decide on what to watch on TV? Let them choose! Wondering what’s for dinner? Serve their favorite meal!
  4. Give them a massage! Everyone loves getting a massage. So, break out the lotion and scented candles, dim the lights, and let your significant other enjoy this treat!
  5. Go pick up their favorite meal from their favorite restaurant… to go. They say the way to a man’s heart is through their stomach… and the same is true for women! Let them come home to their favorite meal, and we guarantee a smile on their face.
  6. Create a romantic playlist on their computer with songs that remind you of them. Music can be very romantic, and every couple has songs that remind them of each other. For an extra touch of romance, slow dance together.
  7. Serve them breakfast in bed! Who doesn’t LOVE breakfast in bed? It is a great way to put a smile on your spouse’s face as soon as they start their day!
  8. Plan a surprise mini-vaca: A romantic getaway is always a hit! And a little vacation alone together is always good for a relationship.
  9. Write them a poem. It sounds cheesy, but it’s sweet! Even if it’s just a few lines, poems are a romantic and cute way to express your love. And you never know, you may find out you’re a poet and didn’t know it! 🙂
  10. Collect the best pictures of the two of you. Whether you put them in an album, turn them into a scrapbook, or just display them on the coffee table, this is a sweet gesture that will take you on a walk down memory lane together!
  11. Plan a date night. It sounds simple, but it means a lot. Taking the time to plan a night with your spouse is an important declaration of your love. Extra points if it’s a surprise!
  12. Buy them a “Just Because” gift. We usually only send presents on holidays, but what better reason than to declare your love? Wow your spouse with an awesome gift like an I Love You Rose, or Paper Roses with a custom message or photos.

Our busy lives often don’t leave room for affirmations of love; we set aside days like anniversaries and Valentine’s Day for those things. But it is important to show your spouse how much you love them… Just Because.

8 Tips for a Romantic and Memorable Proposal

Will You Marry Me 300.pjpegSo, you’ve found the right girl– the one you want to spend the rest of your life with.  There’s just one thing left to do: Pop the question.

Sounds easy, right? Except it isn’t.

There is so much that has happened between the two of you that has led you here. You are feeling so many emotions.  So, how do you express all of those emotions in just one moment? With just one question? This is a memory you and your partner will share with loved ones for years to come.

Just remember these 8 tips, and you are sure to create a beautiful memory you will cherish for the rest of your life!

1. Never underestimate the element of surprise.
There’s no point of planning a romantic proposal if your girlfriend already knows it’s coming. The surprise is what makes it so memorable and special. Remember to keep the ring locked away and no obvious evidence lying around. Too many proposals are ruined by the girl figuring it out in advance.

2. Choose the right place.
Whether you propose at home or at a ballgame, the “where” is one of the most important aspects of the proposal. A common idea is to revisit the place where you first met or had your first date. Wherever it is, it should be special to you as a couple. If it is somewhere new to you, try to scope it out beforehand and get familiar with it.

3. Lead up to the moment.
Sorry guys… simply asking “Will you marry me?” isn’t enough for this special moment. Use this time to really express how you feel to your significant other. Maybe recap some of your best memories together or what makes your love for each other so strong. Try to plan it a little in advance and maybe even practice a few times.

4. Set the mood.
If this is to be the most romantic moment of both of your lives, it is up to you to set that mood. If you plan on going to a busy restaurant, ask if you could be seated somewhere private. Dress for the occasion, spray some cologne, and grab a peppermint.

5. Remember to relax!
Don’t let your nerves ruin this special moment. Relax, and remember what a wonderful memory you are creating. If you are feeling especially anxious, try having a drink beforehand to calm your nerves.

6. Be flexible.
Whenever you are planning a big moment, you run the risk of things not going your way. If this happens, don’t panic!  Try to have a plan B (and maybe even a plan C). If all else fails, you can always wait for another time. Don’t let your impatience take over.

7. Don’t forget to get down on one knee.
It is an old tradition, yes. But it’s part of what makes this moment so special. Getting down on one knee shows humility, and that is an important part of the question. It might be tricky depending on your location, but definitely try to make it work.

8. Decide on how you will ask.
Whether you plan on hiring a skywriting service or just simply asking, “Will you marry me?,” it’s important to figure out how exactly you will surprise your partner with the proposal. If you are looking for a unique idea that is truly memorable, buy a bouquet of our “Will you marry me?” roses. After the proposal is over, you can keep the flowers as a memento of this special day.

 

8 Ways to Celebrate your First Wedding Anniversary

1st-annIt’s only been a year since you’ve gotten married, and now you’re planning for your one year wedding anniversary – time sure does fly by.

Your first wedding anniversary is the perfect opportunity to celebrate your love for each other. In this post, we’re going to share eight creative ways to celebrate your first wedding anniversary.

At JustPaperRoses, we have an assortment of beautiful paper gifts to help celebrate your first wedding anniversary. Go here to view our romantic wedding anniversary paper gifts.

2. Plan a Romantic Weekend Getaway

Whether you plan a weekend cruise or you spend the weekend in a romantic log cabin in the woods – this is a great way to spend time alone. This is also a great opportunity to reminisce about your wedding and talk about your plans for the future.

3. Write Each Other Love Letters

If you want to do something more unique than purchasing traditional anniversary cards, write love letters to each other. You can write about how you feel about your spouse or share your fondest memories of your wedding day.

4. Recreate Your Wedding Reception Menu

For many brides, the wedding day is filled with so much excitement that you barely have time to enjoy eating your meal!  Your first wedding anniversary is the perfect opportunity to plan a dinner filled with the items that were on your wedding menu. You can go shopping with your spouse and prepare the meal together.

After dinner, you can snuggle on the sofa and enjoy watching your wedding video.  If you don’t have a wedding video, you can watch the first movie you watched together.

5. Enjoy a Slice of Your Wedding Cake

This may sound a little old-fashioned, but many brides still enjoy the tradition of freezing the top portion of their wedding cake for their first wedding anniversary.

Tip: To defrost, remove the cake from the freezer and store it in your refrigerator for two days. Then about two hours before you plan to eat it, place it on your cake stand. This will allow it to come to room temperature.

6. Dance to your Wedding Song

Relive your first moments as a married couple by sharing your “first dance” together again. You may even want to surprise your spouse with the song. We promise all those beautiful wedding memories will come rushing back!

7. Go on a Dream ‘Staycation’

If you and your spouse don’t have the time to go away on a dream vacation, consider going on a staycation. The key to having a romantic staycation is remove all your distractions and spend some great quality time together! Light some candles and order dinner in.

8. Have a Movie Marathon

If you and your spouse are fortunate to have the full day off, this is the perfect opportunity to have a movie marathon. Choose a few of your favorite movies and have your spouse choose some too. Then take turns watching your favorite movie together. Don’t forget to turn off your phones so there aren’t any distractions!
